Intro

Contents

Most people don’t wear watches these days. Even if they do, some would still go for the branded expensive models. These changed when wearable technology took off a few years back.

Integrating the popular functionalities of Smart or fitness bands with a larger screen, Mi Watch Lite can be considered an upscaled version of such devices.

The Mi Watch Lite comes with a 1.4 inch 320×320 TFT screen at 350 nits which is viewable under bright sunlight. Although it looks larger than the normal bands, it only weighs 35g.

Mi Watch Lite has built in GPS/GLONASS and has 5 ATM water resistance. It also has a barometer(altimeter)for the fitness enthusiasts. For the non sporty or elders, this Mi Watch Lite is a perfect companion for health monitoring e.g. heart rate and sleeping habits.
