Xiaomi has released a hands-on video of its Mi watch, ahead of the official launch, on Wednesday.

Earlier in this month, the China-based company had announced its plan to unveil the new Mi CC9 Pro (aka Mi Note 10) along with Mi Watch on November 5.

In the video, the watch looks similar to the Apple watch as it has the same squarish lozenge design. There is also a trademark digital crown at the top of the frame on the right side of the watch.

The watch is powered by MIUI OS and comes with a 3x3grid form-based stack. All apps appear in square shapes with colourful logos and users can scroll through the options using the digital crown and swipe gestures.

The video also shows the user watching a video on the watch.

So far, the company has maintained secrecy on the watch’s specifications. But if the rumors are to be believed, the watch will run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset. Similar chips are powering the latest Google Wear OS-powered Fossil smartwatches.

There are several other things that will only be revealed after its official launch, which will be held in a few days from now.
