Xiaomi has launched the affordable Mi Watch Lite, priced at less than many of their competitors – £69.99. This budget smartwatch can track your steps via GPS, exercise and also allow you to view your texts, calls and other notifications on your wrist but that is not everything…Smartwatch for Less is the first UK distributor selling Mi Watch Lite.
It has a 1.4-inch colour touchscreen display with built GPS + GLONASS for precise satellite positioning so it can track your position, speed and distance.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite has a square display, like an Apple Watch or Fitbit Versa, which is a big difference from the circular Mi Watch. This is a 1.4-inch LCD screen with 320 x 320 resolution.
The display can be customized with 120 different watch faces, each of which sits somewhere on a spectrum between ‘utilitarian’ and ‘goofy’.
There’s a crown to the side of the display, unlike the two the Mi Watch has, and the body in general has flat edges and doesn’t look to be too thick.
Users can monitor 11 different types of exercises, both indoors and outdoors including running, treadmill running, cycling, open water swimming, freestyle, pool swimming, cricket, trekking, trail run, walking and indoor cycling.
The watch will track your steps, speed, calories burned and distance and will also allow you to set goals to meet your fitness goals.
The Mi Watch Lite can also measure your heart rate while you’re exercising, keep track of your resting heart rate and even give you a notification if your heart rate rises above or falls below normal rates as well as monitor long term heart rate changes.
If you stay idle for an extended period, the Mi Watch Lite will also remind you to move around.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite can also help you improve your sleep with its sleep tracking function.
The app provides a comprehensive daily snap shot of your exercise, daily heart rate and sleep data.
Users can also instantly see incoming calls, text messages and app notifications and also control their music playback if they are using a streaming service on their smartphone.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite has an impressive nine-day battery life and can be charged to 100% in 2 hours.
But if you have GPS turned on constantly in Sports Mode that will bring that battery life down drastically to 10 hours which is basically a full day of use. To be honest, nobody needs to have GPS on all the time. It is recommended to use when exercising outdoors.
The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is available now in our store. Smartwatch for Less is the first UK distributor of Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite.
