The Xiaomi Watch S1 Active has a familiar design. It has a circular dial and the strap seems to be made of silicone. The smartwatch has two hardware buttons on the dial, with Home, Sport, Outdoor, and Active text engraved on it. Like with most smartwatches, the Xiaomi Watch S1 Active will be able to track steps, outdoor sports, and much more. It will have support for multiple watch faces as well. The renders show it will come in Black, Blue, and White colour options.

Unfortunately, no other details about the Watch S1 Active are available at the moment. Nonetheless, we can speculate the upcoming Active model will build on the standard Watch S1 in terms of specifications and other features. The Watch S1 has a 1.43-inch AMOLED display, 5ATM water-resistant rating, 117 sports modes, and a GNSS location for outdoor movement tracking. There is a 470mAh battery that is claimed to last up to 12 days on a single charge. There is a microphone and speaker to take calls, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) tracker, and heart rate monitoring.

The Xiaomi 12 series had already debuted in China and is gearing to debut globally soon. The new renders shared with us by Agarwal show the rear design of the upcoming phones and are similar to the original, but there is a new ‘5G’ branding on the back panel. The Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, and 12X can be seen in Black, Blue, and Purple colour options. The phones have triple cameras on the back with LED flash. We can speculate the hardware specifications to be similar to the China variants.
