Xiaomi’s upcoming smartwatch will run on Wear OS 3 in works, claims report


  • Xiaomi is reportedly working on a new smartwatch
  • The USP of the device is that it will run Wear OS 3
  • It will bring support for Google apps and services

Xiaomi’s upcoming smartwatch may come equipped with Wear OS by Google, reveals a new report by 9to5Google. To recall, Xiaomi recently unveiled the Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro at MWC 2023 for the global market, and now it is said to be working on a new smartwatch.

The name of the Xiaomi smartwatch with Wear OS is yet to be revealed. In all likelihood, it could be the Xiaomi Watch 2 or Watch 2 Pro. Xiaomi’s high-end smartwatches, like the Watch S1 Pro, run on Android, but there is no support for Google apps and services. Hence, Xiaomi touts that its smartwatches come equipped with the “MIUI Watch OS.” The Wear OS-powered Xiaomi smartwatch is expected to offer access to Google apps and services.

Nothing much is known about the upcoming Xiaomi watch that will run on Wear OS. The report claims that the device will release under the “Xiaomi Watch” branding. This again suggests that it could be called the Watch 2.

Users will be able to manage the smartwatch using the Mi Fitness (Xiaomi Wear) app, claims the report. It appears that the company is planning to launch it sometime in 2023. Hopefully, the rumour mill will spill more information on it in the coming weeks.

Samsung adopted the Wear OS on the Galaxy Watch 5 series, and Google’s Pixel Watch also runs on it. Hence, it appears that Xiaomi could be planning to rival these brands in future.
