Looks like Xiaomi's budget smartwatch is all set to step out of China
91Mobiles (via tipster Ishan Agarwal), the agency is all set to launch the Mi Watch Revolve and Mi Band 5 in the nation.When (and if) it launches, the Mi Watch Revolve could be Xiaomi's first smartwatch in India.It's believed to be a rebranded Mi Watch Color that's already out in China. The smartwatch was also formerly noticed in the Mi Watch App with a similar design as its Chinese counterpart.The rounded Mi Watch Color is a cheaper option to Xiaomi's Apple Watch lookalike — the Mi Watch. It's also more akin to a health watch than a full-featured smartwatch in that it doesn't make/receive phone calls or aid third-party apps. It does, however it, get a host of fitness monitoring features and boasts 14-day battery life. It also elements an AMOLED show, NFC (as a minimum in China), 5ATM water resistance, and Bluetooth 5.0.As for the Mi Band 5, we've already seen the fitness tracker launch globally. We don't expect any adjustments to its specs when it comes to India, apart from the elimination of NFC, SpO2 tracking, and a voice assistant. Xiaomi doesn't offer these points in the global variant of the fitness band, so it won't be wrong to assume that the India model also lacks them. However, Xiaomi launched the Mi Pay electronic payments platform in India last year, so there is a explanation for it add NFC to the Indian model of the Mi Band 5.
According to 91Mobiles, the Mi Watch Revolve could be accessible in Chrome Silver and Midnight Black colorways in India. Xiaomi launched the Mi Watch Color in China for 799 yuan (~$112). However, its price has since dropped to 599 yuan (~$84). If the Mi Watch Revolve is indeed a rebranded Mi Watch Color, clients in India can expect to pay around Rs 6,500 for it.The Mi Band 5 retails for 189 yuan (~$27) in China, but Xiaomi pricing in India tends to be a bit higher than in its home market.So expect an Indian price slightly higher than an instantaneous forex conversion of Rs 2,026 would indicate.There's no word on a precise release date for the 2 wearables. We'll update this article when we all know more.
