This morning, at a very early hour, Xiaomi made the Mi Watch Lite officially available. It has a battery life of 9 days with a display that is only 1.4 inches in size.
Because the gadget had been submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in October, we were aware that it was going to be released soon. Both China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the UL (Demko) authorities have already given their stamps of approval to the wearable device.

Specifications and Data for the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite
The Mi Watch Lite is a repackaged version of the Redmi Watch that was introduced in China the previous month (but with GPS). It is very similar to its older brother, who came out the year before.
The watch has a TFT LCD touchscreen measuring 1.41 inches square and a single button located on the right edge of the case. The screen size has been reduced from the 1.78-inch AMOLED display seen on the first generation model, which is the most significant modification. The pixel resolution of the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is 320 x 320, and its pixel density is 323 ppi.
There are 120 different colored watch faces available to pick from on the watch, and some of them allow you to customize the information that is displayed on the watch. The device also has an automatic brightness adjustment feature that makes it easy to see in any setting.
The underlying technology for monitoring one’s health is essentially unchanged from what it was in the past. The Mi Watch Lite features an always-on heart rate monitor, exercise and health tracking, idle alarms, a barometer, a compass, and built-in GPS. It is water-resistant up to 50 meters (and GLONASS).

The 6-axis sensor, which consists of a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope, makes possible 11 different fitness modes. These modes include open and pool swimming with movement detection. Other sports that can be participated in include outdoor running, running on a treadmill, cycling both outdoors and indoors, walking, trekking, trail running, and cricket.
In terms of the capabilities of the smart functionality, there are phone calls, texts, and notifications from apps; control of the music; the ability to locate the phone; alarms; the weather; a stop watch; a flashlight; and a timer. However, neither NFC nor LTE support is available.
The whole unit has a water resistance rating of 5 ATM, and it comes equipped with a 230 mAH lithium-ion battery that can be charged using a 5W power source. The capacity is significantly lower when compared to its predecessor, which featured a battery with 570 mAH. In spite of this, the Mi Watch Lite, which has a lower power consumption, may last for up to 9 days on a single charge and for 10 hours with the GPS function turned on.
The watch barely weighs a total of 21g without the TPU strap and 35g when worn with it. It measures 41 millimeters by 35 millimeters by 10.9 millimeters in total.
