If you didn’t know Xiaomi is very much active in the fitness segment also lately and a few months ago it launched Mi Watch which is getting an affordable treatment just like several other tech products and just like other affordable products the cheaper Mi Watch will be known as Mi Watch Lite.
A listing on UL (Demko) certification website was spotted by tipster Mukul Sharma which confirms the name of this cheaper Mi Watch and also reveals few key details about the upcoming smartwatch.
As the name suggests the Mi Watch Lite is going to be a toned-down variant of the original Mi Watch or it could simply be the Redmi Watch bearing model number REDMIWT0 which could be launched as Mi Watch Lite outside China.
The Redmi Watch we are speaking about has been spotted by a Weibo user named Digital Chat Station with an identical model number “REDMIWT01” in a Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) listing but no other information was provided there so there are high chances of Mi Watch Lite being a rebranded Redmi Watch meant for the international market.
Apart from the model number we get the rating information which. tells that the watch will operate on the input of 5Vdc and 0.4A and the UL(Demko) certification listing doesn’t provide any more information regarding this new wearable.
These certifications do confirm that Mi Watch Lite or Redmi Watch is due to launch very soon and some reports suggest that it could launch as early as next month which is October.
Mi Watch which launched back in December last year sports a 1.78-inch AMOLED display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The watch is backed up by a 570mAh battery and can last up to 36 hours on a single charge. It also has dual sim connectivity through eSIM support along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC.
