This is raising speculations that the “Mi Watch Lite” is actually a Redmi smartwatch.
According to the certification information, Redmi’s first watch comes with model number REDMIWT01. The product is a Bluetooth device and the applicant is Xiaomi Communication Technology Co., Ltd. As its first smartwatch, the Redmi watch will probably use the MIUI for Watch operating system. This system is based on the Android operating system. It will support eSIM virtual card service as well as downloading and installation of Apps.
As of now, this is the only information regarding the smartwatch. While many believe that this is a Redmi Watch, others believe that it is a Xiaomi Watch.
