Xiaomi’s new i-Youth Smart air conditioner has gone on sale in China for 2699 CNY / 435 US$.
The air conditioner comes in 4 colors, and the smart comes from the fact that it is Bluetooth and WiFi compatible, and can be controlled via other devices via an app. It can also pair with your existing Mi Band fitness tracker.
The appliance comes in two versions, i.e., with a 1HP and a 1.5HP motor. Pricing is believed to be introductory, and will most likely go up in the near future, as Chinese outlets report.
