Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune to own a high-quality smartwatch. With a look that’s far more premium than the price segment, the product’s sharp 1.4-inch LCD screen is the first detail that catches your eye. This screen is large and clear, providing a good experience during use.
The product possesses the convenient features of a smart watch, and also supports personal health monitoring functions. These features include the ability to monitor heart rate, count steps taken during the day, calories consumed and sleep status monitoring.
In addition, the watch has a range of different exercise modes, along with a design with high durability and water resistance to a maximum depth of up to 50 m.
Mi Watch Lite has a long battery life, with a maximum theoretical usage time of up to 9 days. This is an impressive level of battery life, allowing users to comfortably use it without much worry.
However, Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is not a perfect smartwatch. Specifically, although possessing many features to monitor personal health status, some of these features are not very accurate. However, compared to the price segment, the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is still a great product model, giving users a great value of use.

There are neatly arranged square icons, with features including exercise mode, daily health status indicators, heart rate measurement and sleep quality monitoring, along with breathing exercises, music control, and so on.
