Xiaomi's Apple Watch clone is now official
« on: November 06, 2019, 07:05:47 AM »


The "Apple of China" has come a long way in the global smartphone market, sitting right behind the Cupertino-based tech giant that inspired so many of its early handset designs in the latest vendor ranks after focusing a lot more on innovation and originality in the past couple of years. But Xiaomi hasn't entirely given up on its old ways, unveiling today one of the most blatant Apple Watch clones we can remember.


As suspected, the aptly named Xiaomi Mi Watch comes powered by Google's Wear OS platform, although given the device is made primarily for the company's China homeland, you shouldn't be surprised to see a MIUI skin applied on top of the operating system formerly known as Android Wear. By the way, it remains unclear if Western availability is in the cards, and if it is, whether or not Xiaomi plans to release a Mi Watch variant with a closer-to-stock Wear OS experience.

While we'd normally advise you to not get your hopes up regarding an official US launch of a Xiaomi product, it's important to point out the company is a key financial backer of Huami, the little-known maker of those increasingly popular and incredibly affordable Amazfit smartwatches you can find at Best Buy and Amazon. Thus, you could say Xiaomi is not a complete smartwatch market rookie, even though the Mi Watch is the first such device released under the Chinese tech giant's main brand.
