A few days ago, Xiaomi launched a long-endurance smartwatch: Xiaomi Mi Watch Color, officially completed the layout of three categories: wearable smart band, long-range smartwatch and true smartwatch. After a few days of experience, we found that ultra-long battery life, enough trendy design and practical features are the smartwatches we really need. Next, let's take a look at the experience below. And to see how does the Xiaomi Mi watch color perform?

At first, the release of the Xiaomi Mi Watch caused a lot of heated discussion among consumers, and the fully functional smartwatch with a battery life of only two days could not poke the pain point of most users, after all, not many people would watch videos on the watch.

At present, the main functions of smartwatches are still notifications and health track, and the long battery life should also be a standard for smart wearable devices, like the Apple Watch has been complained by many users because of its short battery life. The introduction of the Xiaomi Mi Watch Color perfectly solves the problem of battery life, and the design of the round dial is also quite beautiful.

1.39-inch circular screen + trendy watch strap

The first impression of Xiaomi Mi Watch Color is simplicity and delicacy. It inherits the traditional and simplified design style of Xiaomi products, with no extra design elements on the dial and body, clean and capable. The dial is cleverly designed, and the time scale is just around the edge of the screen, covering the original black edge, giving people a sense of visual boundlessness, which is roughly a reference to the overall screen concept on the phone.

In addition, the round dial design makes the Xiaomi watch color look more like a traditional watch, more in line with the usual aesthetic perception of the public.


In fact, it has not been decided whether the smartwatch should use a square screen or a round screen, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Square screen is actually a reduced version of mobile phone display, which has high screen utilization and is more convenient for third-party developers to design user interface, so we see that both Apple Watch and Xiaomi Mi Watch use square screen, which tends to pursue user experience.

However, users have long been deeply ingrained in the styling of traditional watches, and the round dial looks more natural and easier to wear, so it's not surprising that the Xiaomi Mi Watch Color, which focuses on the concept of "tech trendy", has switched to a round screen.


The Xiaomi Mi Watch Color uses a 1.39in AMOLED display with a resolution of 454x454 and a PPI of 326, reaching the level of the retina with a delicate display. In addition, the screen is covered with Corning gorilla third-generation glass, using a droplet arc design, slightly spherical arch, but no higher than the surrounding metal protective ring, taking into account both durability and beauty. What’s more, DLC coating is also added to the glass surface this time, which can provide surface hardness and wear resistance.

Compared with traditional watches, smartwatches provide more functions, including receiving mobile phone notifications, monitoring health data, paying by NFC card and so on, which greatly facilitates our daily life. But the problem of battery life is inevitable, which greatly reduces the enthusiasm of consumers to choose smartwatches, and it is also a difficult problem for manufacturers.

In order to pursue a long life, the Xiaomi Mi Watch Color has a large battery with built-in 420mAh capacity, compared with the battery capacity of the Apple Watch 5, which is only 296mAh. In addition, Xiaomi Mi Watch Color also removes the third-party extension function, does not support the installation of third-party applications, and only retains Alipay to facilitate users' mobile payment.

Even if it does not support third-party applications to extend the built-in functionality of Xiaomi Mi Watch Color itself, it is quite powerful. Limited by the screen size, the touch interaction experience of the watch is far less than that of the mobile phone, so Xiao Ai, who interacts with each other through voice, becomes extremely convenient. Xiaomi students can also do a lot of things on their watches, such as setting a countdown to cooking, setting an alarm clock before going to bed, allowing you to control the sweeping robot at home anytime, anywhere, and so on. It also supports NFC function, built-in bus cards from 16 regions in China to choose from, and can be written into the key card of the community to facilitate daily access.
