After weeks of leaks and rumors, Xiaomi has finally launched its latest smartwatch. The Mi Watch Lite is a smartwatch for budget-conscious users. The new watch looks to be a rebrand of the Redmi Watch that was launched last month. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Mi Watch Lite in Nepal.
Mi Watch Lite Overview:
Design and Display
The Mi Watch Lite sports a 1.4-inch square display. Since it’s an entry-level smartwatch, Xiaomi has opted for a TFT LCD panel instead of AMOLED. The display has a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels, resulting in a 323 PPI pixel density. Likewise, the typical brightness level of the watch is listed at 350 nits. Similarly, the watch covers 60% of the NTSC color gamut. The watch comes with 120 customizable watch faces.
Taking the heart rate sensor into account, the watch measures 41 x 35mm x 11.9mm. With the TPU strap, the Mi Watch Lite weighs around 35 grams. The watch has 5 ATM certification.
Health, Fitness Tracking
Moving on, Mi Watch Lite is able to keep track of 11 workout modes. However, only 10 of them will be available at launch. The company has promised to include Cricket in future OTA upgrade. The PPG optical sensor can record changes in the heart rate. The watch can record resting heart rate data for up to 3 days. Similarly, the watch also supports sleep tracking but it’s not clear if it can record REM sleep. Also, the watch provides breathing exercises.
Mi Watch Lite is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Users of the two platforms need to download the Xiaomi Wear Lite app and Xiaomi Wear app, respectively to analyze the data.

Xiaomi is claiming 9 days of battery endurance on normal usage with the 230mAh battery. However, the number is drastically reduced to just 10 hours with continuous GPS usage.
