Xiaomi will soon launch the Mi Watch Revolve and Mi Band 5 in India, 91mobiles has learned from tipster Ishan Agarwal. The Mi Watch Revolve will be the first smartwatch from Xiaomi in the country and is said to be a rebranded Mi Watch Color that is currently available in China. Meanwhile, the Mi Band 5 will succeed last year’s Mi Band 4 and was launched in China back in June. This is not the first time we’re hearing about the Mi Watch Revolve. XDA-Developers had reported in June that the Mi Watch Color would launch outside China as the Mi Watch Revolve. It now seems India will be one of the markets to receive the Mi Watch Revolve, although an exact launch date is unknown.

Mi Band 5 specifications and price in India (expected)

The Mi Band 5 comes with a 1.1-inch touchscreen AMOLED colour display, which is slightly bigger than its predecessor. The wearable is rated to last up to 14 days on a single charge and actively tracks heart rate and sleep. Apart from this, the Mi band 5 features 11 different sports modes, ranging from yoga to jump rope, PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence), and optional NFC functionality. We’re not sure whether NFC-enabled Mi band 5 will launch in India or not just yet.

There is also a dedicated mode for women to track their health and menstrual cycle, along with a long list of fitness tracking modes already available on previous Mi Band trackers. Other highlights of the wearable include a new plug-in charging mechanism instead of USB – the charger latches on the back of Mi Band 5 using magnets, and new watch faces. The wearable is also water-resistant up to 50 meters. The Mi Band 5 price in China is set starting at RMB 189, which roughly translates to Rs 2,000. We expect the official India price of the Mi Band 5 to be under Rs 2,000.
