Xiaomi has announced the global launch of its Mi Watch, and formally kicked off the company's entry into the world of smartwatches. Official marketing materials state that the Mi Watch will cost from €99, but Xiaomi has informed our German-speaking colleagues that it will retail for €119. It features a dedicated sports button on the side.

Battery life from the 420mAh cell is said to last for up to 16 days - although only in standby time, certainly not if you're using it non-stop with all features activated. Heart rate, Global Positioning System and blood oxygen show it's not here to be dominated by Apple and Fitbit, and there are 117 exercise modes. The Mi Watch has a built-in Global Positioning System and compass, 5 ATM water resistance and a SpO2 sensor for monitoring blood oxygen levels. Additionally, the smartwatch features over 100 watch faces, camera remote function, native emojis on notifications, voice control, and more.

In terms of specifications, the 1.39-inch AMOLED display offers 454 x 454 pixels resolution, 450 nits brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It's even 5ATM rated, meaning it's waterproof to 50m deep for all those water-based activities. After all, traditional watches could run on a single battery for years on end before needing a change, so the idea of a smartwatch that had to be charged everyday or every other day seemed rather inconvenient. A couple of new phones land alongside the watch in Europe, with the flagship Mi 10T Pro arguably the stand-out.
