Mi Watch Revolve Overview

It has a big 1.39 inches AMOLED display with Smart Always-on-Display. The display will automatically turn off when you are not wearing the watch. It has a screen resolution of 454 X 454 and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
There are about 112 Watch faces at the moment but plans to provide more than 1000 watch faces in the coming months.
Fitness Tracking Features
Mi Watch Revolve comes with the Firstbeat motion algorithm. It measures heart rate variability (time between consecutive heartbeats), body energy, sleep quality, and stress management.
It also comes with VO2 measurement which helps to measure cardiovascular fitness. We can find this feature on the Huawei Watch GT2 as well.
It lets you know the entry used, the intensity of the workout, and recovery time after workout. It includes 10 sport modes such as outdoor running, outdoor cycling, trail running, trekking, treadmill, indoor cycling, walking, freestyle workout, swimming, and pool swimming. With the inbuilt GPS, it will also track your location while tracking these workouts.
Mi Watch Revolve comes with a 420 mAh battery and Xiaomi claims up to 2 weeks of battery life on a single charge.
It takes around 2 hours and 30 mins to charge the watch from 0 to 100.
For connectivity, Mi Watch Revolve supports Bluetooth 5.0 but it doesn’t have Wi-Fi. So, it only uses Bluetooth for remote controls such as managing calls, displaying notifications, controlling music and etc.
Furthermore, it uses Xiaomi Wear.
Mi Watch Revolve Price in Nepal and Availability
Mi Watch Revolve is priced at 10,999 INR and is available for an introductory price of 9,999 INR. So, the Mi Watch Revolve price in Nepal could be around Rs. 19,000 when it arrives in Nepal.
Given, Mi Nepal has been expanding its range of products, Mi Watch Revolve should launch in Nepal.
Mi Watch Revolve looks like a basic smartwatch that is affordable and provides most of the required function. It does not include Wi-Fi and doesn’t come with a SPo2 sensor but it looks like a good smartwatch for its asking price.
