It took a long time for Xiaomi to launch its first smartwatches in Europe. Besides the Mi Watch Lite, the manufacturer also releases the Xiaomi Mi Watch, but it is not a WearOS smartwatch. Instead, it has its own operating system, over 100 sports modes and Alexa integration. Is this the time for Xiaomi smartwatches?
It took a long time, but smartwatches are now part of Xiaomi’s extensive portfolio. Released in China as the Redmi Watch smartwatch, the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite smartwatch is already available for around $60. Compared to its competition, the Mi Watch Lite brings an important advantage. But can Xiaomi make smartwatches at all?
Redmi, the “daughter brand” of Xiaomi, is best known for the smartphones of the Redmi Note series. After the Redmi Band, they are now expanding their wearable portfolio with the first smartwatch of their own, which has only been unveiled in China so far.
While we are unfortunately still waiting for our review sample of the Amazfit GTS 2, the wearable manufacturer in China has introduced a mini version of the popular watch. The Amazfit GTS 2 Mini is not only smaller but is apparently also intended to replace the first Amazfit GTS in the long term.
In the fitness tracker segment for around $40, the Mi Band has been stealing the spotlight from the competition for several generations now. But the Honor Band has always been very strong and the Honor Band 6 finally gets a redesign, which makes it much more modern. So far it has only been presented in China.
Following the Huami Amazfit Neo, wearable manufacturer Amazfit is releasing another inexpensive Smartwatch and is expanding its popular Bip range. Judging by the first pictures, the Huami Amazfit Bip U could almost be called Amazfit GTS Lite.
Shortly after the news about the renaming of the Amazfit app to Zepp, a new Smartwatch of the Amazfit brand appears. The Huami Amazfit Neo is fully committed to retro design without sacrificing any smart features.
