Xiaomi is one of the largest consumer electronics brands in the world. Ranging from electric toothbrush and air-purifier to gaming monitors and flagship phones, they manufacture a wide array of electronics each year. It is wise to say that they have an ecosystem of their own. And, persistently, they have been launching new products day in and day out. September 29 of 2020, Xiaomi has added a new smart-watch under their wing of smart electronics: The Xiaomi Mi Watch Revolve. It is a debut of smart watches from Xiaomi into the Indian market. Let’s discern into what it proffers in terms of design, build and specifications.
Xiaomi Mi Watch Revolve Overview:
Design & Display
Mi Watch Revolve hallmarks a round body design. It features a 1.39inch Amoled display with a screen resolution of 454×454 pixels. The screen is coated with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection for scratch and dust protection. Likewise, the display panel can light up to 450nits which is somehow equivalent to brightness level of today’s mid-tier phones. The whole display is kept intact with a stainless-steel chassis and a plastic back. The timepiece is also immune up to 5ATM for water resistance.
The Mi Watch Revolve boasts a smart always-on display feature. When enabled, the screen will turn on as long as the watch is on your wrist. However, if you take off your watch, it will turn the display off automatically; thereby, relaxing the battery drain.
Mi Watch Revolve comes in two color variants- Midnight Black body with Space Black straps and Chrome Silver body with Neptune Blue Straps. The straps are made of silicon material for durability and comfort. In account to your preferences and apparel, Xiaomi has also annexed 5 add-on straps you can choose to buy.
