We are still waiting for the Chinese outfit to make one of its smartwatches available globally. Its first effort on this front was Mi Watch. Launched towards the end of 2019, Xiaomi refers to it as “a small mobile phone on the wrist”.

Housed in an Apple Watch-looking design the device runs on a customized version of Wear OS. It has support for eSIM cards, 4G LTE, NFC, GPS, a voice assistant and the usual fitness sensors.

Xiaomi followed this up with a cheaper round device called Mi Watch Color.  This one doesn’t have cellular capability but it has most things found on its big brother. The company says the timepiece aims to fill the gap between fitness bands and fully fledged smartwatches.

Now it looks like Mi Watch Color will go through a re-branding exercise and launch globally as Mi Watch Revolve. This is according to xda-developers who spotted it in the latest version of the Mi Watch app. Click on add new device and there it is – a circular watch dubbed Mi Watch Revolve. It is listed alongside Mi Watch and there’s option to add Mi Watch Color.

There’s even an unboxing YouTube video posted by username eSavants. He apparently managed to purchase the smartwatch from AliExpress for around $100.

As far as specs, we can probably expect a mirror of what can be found on Mi Watch Color. This includes a 1.39-inch AMOLED display housed inside a 47mm stainless steel case, fitness sensors (including an accelerometer, barometer and heart rate), a bunch of Firstbeat metrics and 5 ATM water resistance.

Battery life is an excellent 14 days in normal smartwatch mode. This climbs up to 22 days in basic mode, and falls to 22 hours with GPS switched on.
