Mi Watch Revolve Active: Review, Specs and Features

Design and Display

Mi Watch Revolve Active has an amazingly simple circular design. The Xiaomi Mi Watch Revolve comes in three different colors: black, blue, and beige. The cost of this watch is Rs.10,000, but the plastic case and strap are not worth the price.

It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with scratch-resistant coating and a high-quality 450 nit brightness, which means it can be used indoors and outdoors. It has a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels which is excellent. 

This watch can be customized with 110+ different watch faces. Moreover, you can even use your beautiful pictures as a watch face.

To be honest, this latest smartwatch from Xiaomi looks stunning and doesn’t look cheap.

Health Tracking Features

The new Xiaomi Mi Watch Revolve comes with all essential health tracking features, from heart rate monitoring to SpO2(blood oxygen) level monitoring. The heart rate monitoring was pretty accurate when we compared it with Fitbit Sense advanced health-tracking smartwatch.

The Mi Watch Revolve comes with sleep tracking features, including the time spend on different sleep stages. It monitors your heart rate, movements, and respiration to give you detailed data about your sleep quality. You can use this information to adjust your habits to improve your sleep quality.

Stress level monitoring, VO2 Max and breath training is another excellent feature on this smartwatch.

Fitness Tracking Features

It comes with over 117 sports modes to track your various indoor and outdoor activities like running, hiking, yoga, treadmill and HIIT, to mention a few.

The Xiaomi Mi Evolve watch is equipped with a built-in GPS so that you can track your running paths, pace, distances travelled, and route even when you are away from your phone.

It can automatically recognize what kind of exercise you are doing. It will instantly start tracking the number of steps, distance travelled, calories burned, and heart rate with no intervention required on your part.

The watch automatically uploads your health, fitness, and workout data to the Mi Fit app by itself when connected to the paired smartwatch.

Moreover, it has an IP68 waterproof rating, so you can safely take it for swimming without worrying about damaging it.

Smart Features

You can connect the Mi Xiaomi Revolve smartwatch to Android or iOS devices by downloading the Mi Fit App from the respective app stores. It can alert you with smartphone notifications like any other smart wearable device.

You can see all important data and notifications at a glance, thanks to the high-quality always-on display.

Like other high-end smartwatches, it comes with a voice assistant by Alexa. As it does not have a loudspeaker, you can get the response from Alexa as text on the screen, which is a disadvantage compared to Versa 3.

You can also control the smartphone music and camera with this smartwatch. However, it does not have a music player, which is also a disadvantage.

Battery and Charging Time

It is powered by a 420 mAh ‎Lithium-Ion battery, which can last for two weeks between charges on battery save mode. The battery can last more than 5 – 7 days if you turn on the always-on display.

It takes only 1.5 hours to charge the battery to 100%, which is less than other smartwatches’ charge times of 2 hours.

Is the Mi Watch Revolve a good smartwatch?

The Mi Watch Revolve Active is an upgraded version of Mi Band 5 or 6. The extra addition is its high-quality display and the built-in GPS.
