Apple Watch Series 5 first look

Apple Watch Series 5 first look Apple just unveiled the newest Apple Watch (we're up to the Series 5 now) and -- I mean this in the nicest way -- but there isn't much to see. Whereas last year's model, the Series 4, ushered in a new, larger screen and a built-in electrocardiogram test, the differences in the Series 5 are difficult to notice at a glance. Chief among them: an always-on display that's always visible at dim brightness, but that wakes up to a fuller brightness when you tap it. There's also a Compass app that can show you you latitude, longitude, elevation and incline. You can find all of that in a standalone app in watchOS 6, but the feature is at its best when it's integrated into other apps.

As Xiaomi gears up to launch its 108-megapixel phone at its November 5th event, the company has also unveiled details of its upcoming smartwatch -- and it looks awfully familiar. The device -- which will probably be called the Mi Watch -- bears a striking resemblance to the Apple Watch .

We first saw a glimpse of the Mi Watch last week when we noted its physical similarities to Apple’s smartwatch. There’s a curved rectangular touchscreen, a knurled crown for scrolling, and a pill-shaped button right below that — all the same as Apple’s device.

But Xiaomi has now shared more details about the Mi Watch, and it does sound like a capable little smartwatch competitor. Engadgetreports that it has a 1.78-inch AMOLED display with 326ppi pixel density and a 570mAh battery, which Xiaomi claims is good for 36 hours of use. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor and 1GB of RAM, and it comes with 8GB of internal storage. There’s also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC functionality, a heart rate monitoring feature, and eSIM support for 4G connectivity.

Today, Xiaomi officially unveiled the Mi Watch or as I'd like to call it, the 'I can't believe this is not an Apple Watch — Xiaomi edition.' The Mi Watch is priced at CNY 1,299 ($ 185 ) and will go on sale in China next week. There’ s no word on international availability just yet, but we can expect it to make

Apple Watch 5 copy Xiaomi has not only confirmed but also given us aclose look at what its first smartwatch, the Mi Watch , is going to look like in official renders posted on Weibo. And well, we know that it ’ s an Apple Watch lookalike with a squarish design and digital crown.

The big differential (apart from the price) is Xiaomi’s custom software skin for Wear OS: MIUI For Watch. This looks like it gives Google’s OS a vaguely Apple-ish visual overhaul. Xiaomi has also created its own apps for the device, including lightweight versions of its Tasks, Recorder, and Notes apps, and MIUI For Watch will also have its own app store.

Rounding out the feature set are various health functions, which Xiaomi deployed to great effect in its cheap and popular Mi Smart Band. According to TechRadar, these include a blood oxygen sensor, sleep and exercise tracking, and something called “body energy monitoring.” The Mi Watch is also apparently water resistant for swimming.

The bad news is that the smartwatch will only be on sale in China initially. The basic watch will be available for $185 (CNY 1,299) on November 11th, with a flashier version (with a stainless steel case and metal strap) coming later in the year for around $290 (CNY 1,999). It’s possible that the Mi Watch will also launch in other countries in the months to come.

Oppo's first smartwatch could be more than just another Apple Watch clone .
Oppo has teased its first smartwatch, and it looks a lot like the Apple Watch – but there may be more to it than meets the eye.This tease happened at Inno Day 2019, Oppo's annual developer conference where it shows off lots of the tech it has planned for the following year. Other products shown off included AR glasses, a 5G home hub, and some true wireless headphones, but it's Oppo's smartwatch that's arguably most interesting device.
