Whereas the massive show is simple to learn and packs in additional content material on every display screen, it might feel and appear too huge if in case you have skinny arms. You may additionally by chance hit the watch whereas strolling round, one thing I did within the first few days that I used to be utilizing it. Xiaomi has raised the case across the 1.39-inch AMOLED show which helps hold it secure within the occasion of unintentional knocks. There’s Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with an anti-scratch coating for defense as effectively. After 15 days of use, I can say that there are not any scratches on the show of my evaluation unit.

You may select between Midnight Black and Chrome Silver circumstances when shopping for this smartwatch. I had a Chrome Silver unit with a Neptune Blue strap. The strap is 22mm in width and may be swapped for any customary 22mm strap. Xiaomi has used fast launch pins to connect it to the watch lugs, so it may be eliminated simply with out utilizing any instruments.

Flip the watch round and you’ll discover a coronary heart fee sensor within the centre of the rear, with one contact level on both aspect for charging. Xiaomi presents GPS and GLONASS on the Mi Watch Revolve, which let it monitor walks and runs without having to be paired to a smartphone.

Sleep monitoring was correct, and the Mi Watch Revolve did an excellent job of monitoring totally different phases of sleep. It reveals data in phases labeled Deep Sleep, Gentle Sleep, REM, and Awake, and likewise guides you to enhance sleep high quality.

I seen that it reported decrease power ranges on days after I did not sleep effectively, however I would not take this metric critically.

I received about two weeks out of the Mi Watch Revolve by permitting solely choose notifications from a number of apps and disabling the always-on show operate, however steady coronary heart fee monitoring was enabled.
