• Xiaomi sells only two smartwatches in this country under the main brand.
  • This is about to change soon.
  • The Watch S1 is already available in China.

Xiaomi introduced a new smartwatch for the Chinese market last year with the Watch S1, but it is now rumored that it will also be available in Europe and Germany in the not too distant future. At least that’s what leaker @TechInsiderBlog reveals on Twitter.

It probably goes without saying that notifications can be forwarded to the wrist with the watch. Numerous supported fitness modes, sleep tracking and a heart rate sensor are also on board – standard equipment for such a wearable in 2022.

  • 1.43 inch AMOLED screen, 466 x 466 pixels
  • 4GB memory
  • waterproof up to 5 ATM
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC
  • 470 mAh battery lasts up to 12 days
  • Microphone and speakers (Alexa)

Apart from the high-resolution AMOLED touchscreen, there are also two buttons on the side for operation. Voice assistant Alexa is also on board. Visually, the new Xiaomi smartwatches are reminiscent of those from Huawei.

Proprietary operating system for Android and iOS users

What you might want to criticize: According to the first reports of the watch, like previous Xiaomi smartwatches, it does not connect to the Xiaomi Mi Fit app (which recently received a major update), but to Xiaomi Wear on both Android and iOS.

Mi Fitness (Xiaomi Wear) Price: Free ‎Mi Fitness (Xiaomi Wear Lite) Price: Free

This may also indicate that a proprietary operating system is used on the Xiaomi Watch S1. Nevertheless, apps from third-party providers should be able to be installed, whatever that may look like exactly. The leaker also promises more than 200 watch faces, but you probably can’t build your own.

Xiaomi Watch S1 Active allegedly from 200 euros

In addition to the Xiaomi Watch S1, there is apparently also a Watch S1 Active, whereby the two models should not differ in the technical data, but only in the design. The Watch S1 Active (Space Black/Ocean Blue/Moon White) is said to be the cheaper of the two at around 200 euros, while the Watch S1 (silver/black) costs 250 euros.
