To everyone’s surprise, Xiaomi has announced today its new Mi Watch Color, an unexpected smartwatch that as an alternative to the Mi Watch square arrives in a round format, adding WearOS as an operating system along with a spectacular autonomy of up to 36 hours.
If we remember, in late summer we saw how Xiaomi registered the Mi Watch Color brand, implying months later that it was the current Mi Watch that we all know. Nothing is further from reality, and that is that throughout this morning the Asian firm has unveiled this new Mi Watch Color sporting an attractive rounded design that reminds us greatly of the Amazfit GTR that generated so much fury in its launch.

Specifically, although for now it has only been the announcement and we will not know all its specifications until next January 3, the date on which it will be released for sale, Xiaomi has provided us with endless photos where it lets us see with all luxury details the spectacular design of this new Mi Watch Color.
As we can see, this new smartwatch has a round AMOLED screen, reaching 1.39 inches in a resolution of 454 × 454 pixels. A format criticized by Xiaomi itself for its little space to display content but that finally seems to have yielded to bring us this attractive design.

Of rest, although Xiaomi has not specified any other feature of this unexpected Mi Watch Color, an image filtered through Weibo details part of its features such as its 420mAh battery capable of offering a range of up to 36 hours, NFC connectivity and Bluetooth 5.0 BLE and of course, a complete system of sports monitoring and heart rate.
Price and availability
As we said, the new Xiaomi Mi Watch Color will be released for sale this January 3, 2020, the date on which we will know all its specifications, as well as its price that for now is a mystery.
Even so, it is expected that this new smartwatch has slightly lower specifications than the Mi Watch and that its price does it. In this way, it is quite likely that its price does not exceed $170 USD and that its internal characteristics are slightly reduced especially in internal storage and RAM.
