At present, the appearance and specs of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi smartwatch have been fully exposed. Many friends think it is a copy work of Apple Watch, and some may people may wonder: when Android smartwatches are designed with a circular dial, why Xiaomi smartwatch use rectangular watch dial design?

The appearance of a smartwatch is only a different presented form, and whether a smartwatch is really intelligent or not depends on the internal operating system. So Xiaomi return to the origin of the user experience. After experienced some mainstream smartwatches on the market, and found that basically all of the smartwatch used circular dial solutions, but in terms of experience and interaction, the circular dial can not quickly meet the needs of users.


In addition, in order to explore and compare the effective display area and operation of rectangular and circular interaction, we and Wear OS by Google are specially optimized for rectangular screen smartwatch. To this end, we have set up a special development team to integrate the beloved MIUI into it to create a new MIUI For Watch. The MIUI, approved by more than 200 million users, was used in watches for the first time.


Why Xiaomi Mi Watch Wear OS Smartwatch use rectangular watch dial? Here are some reasons.

1. Higher space utilization, larger display area

First of all, the rectangular MIUI For Watch has higher space utilization, retains the missing corners of the circular dial system, has a larger display area at the same diameter, and can display more effective information.

2. More in line with left-to-right reading habits, so that the eyes feel more comfortable

Our long-term rectangular paper reading habits, want to be changed in a short period of time, is very difficult. And when you slide the circular screen, you will find that your eyes are uncomfortable and you need to constantly zoom to adapt to the size of the character, and now we are unified into a rectangle, there will be no such of trouble.

3. Clear sliding direction and more accurate operation instructions

The biggest problem with the circular watch dial system is that the direction of operation is not clear enough, and the rectangular MIUI For Watch can trigger different operations from top to bottom and left and right, so it is more accurate to use.

In addition to smooth and comfortable interaction, the very practical HiBoard in the MIUI system has now been perfectly ported to MIUI For Watch, checking the schedule and looking at the weather can be easily slippery. In addition, as well as the exclusive Mijia of MIUI, XiaoAi and other popular APP, have also customized a better version according to the shape of the Mi watch, so that the Xiaomi smartwatch can become a more powerful and intelligent control center.
