A company under Xiaomi dubbed Mibro is launching a brand-new, affordable smartwatch come end of the month. Dubbed the Mibro Air, the new watch is geared at active users who want a tough, fully-featured smartwatch but don’t want to pay through the nose for one.
You’re getting a smartwatch that has a lightweight metal body with plenty of scratch resistance. Measuring at just 9.2mm thick with a 42mm watch face, it’s slightly smaller than your typical smartwatch, but it still manages to pack a 1.28 inch TFT touch screen.
The watch has support for 12 different professional sport modes and has all the trappings of a fitness tracker – heart rate and sleep tracking as well as activity tracking that can be uploaded and synced through the Mibro Fit app.
Interestingly the company is promising that the Mibro Air will be able to last up to 25 days on stand-by, and up to 10 days of continuous use. That’s a lofty claim, and if true it’ll make the Mibro Air one of the few smartwatches in the market that can go head-to-head with Huawei’s smartwatch offerings that usually have battery lives that are measured in weeks, not days.
MiBro is currently available at a discounted pre-order price on their website for USD 32.99 (Php 1,6K). No information is available if Xiaomi will release this smartwatch locally as of press time.
