Xiaomi’s first smartwatch will come H2 2016


Xiaomi proved with the Mi Band that it had the mettle to make gadgets beyond phones — wearables, specifically. The Mi Band received a minor update a few months back, but that didn’t quite cut it for the market.

There are quite a few options for a smartwatch, but any Chinese company has yet to make it big in that department. Big things are expected of Xiaomi when they do release a smartwatch of their own.

According toĀ Liu De, one of Xiaomi’s eight co-founders, a smartwatch from the Xiaomi stable is beyond just rumour and is planned for H2 this year. What De said however, is in contrastĀ to Huami CEOĀ Huang Wang words, who previously said that the Mi Band 2 along with the Mi Smartwatch would come Q2 this year.

    Yeah 60 stores with empty shelf because xiaomi always got not enough stock LOL.

    I’m still waiting xiaomi to replenish the Redmi note 3 pro 32GB , been months already always shown as “No Stock” on Xiaomi official Singapore online store.

    Those who got ready stock are either Low End model like redmi 2 or very high end (expensive model) like Mi Note, Mi5.

    What i want is the middle where price and spec are good.
