Mi Watch Lite review:

Design and Display:

Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite comes with a 1.4″ TFT LCD screen in a square design. The smartphone definitely feels comfortable while wearing it as its built design is soft and light. There is a soft strap that is removable. During my usage, I didn’t find any type of irritations or other stuff. Mi Watch Lite weighs 35g so it is light as a feather. I liked how it perfectly fits in my hand and how it feels.

About the display, the watch is responsive with the touches. Though the watch comes with big bezels, you can see the texts sharp and clear. “Raise to Wake” works perfectly as well and the watch screen turns on even with the gentlest action.

Health, Fitness, Sleep Tracking and many other features:

Mi Watch Lite features many modes that include 11 workout modes running, cycling, swimming, cricket—the standard stuff. The watch features heart rate monitoring where you can set a time for tracking your heart rate. I found it quite useful as I used it quite often as I monitored my heart rate every time I workout or while doing things that make me tired. The watch also tracks the steps you walk. There’s no guided workout but the watch will notify you when you reach a certain milestone like walking a kilometer. There’s also “Idle Alert” that reminds you to get up and take a walk every now and then.

Battery life:

The Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is featured with a 230mAh battery that is said to last for 9 days under normal usage. I was quite impressed with the battery as I went days without charging the smartwatch. So, the battery will last for days and you don’t have to worry about charging the watch daily. 

Also about charging, the watch charges real quick and I didn’t have to wait too long for the watch to get charged. You will get a charger inside the box based on a USB-A connection.


Concluding the review, Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite is one of the best budget smartwatches in the market. The device is surely fascinating looking at the price it comes at. Getting these features with the price tag is quite impressive. So purchasing this Smartwatch will not be a waste of money.
