The latest rumors suggest that Xiaomi is developing a new smartwatch for release in the market. Last year, the company had released its Xiaomi Mi Band smart band, so it is not new to the wearable industry. But if this turns out to be true, it would be the first Xiaomi smartwatch from the company. The report says that the Xiaomi smartwatch could feature a brushed metal finish like the one we saw on HTC One M9. Moreover, it would have a round dial bigger than a traditional watch display or competitor devices and a thin design. However, the highlight of the watch is said to be its pulse wave identification technology. This particular tech allows users to verify their identity using their pulse waves. While this sounds like a great tech to secure the device, it requires a lot of power which is already a big problem in smartwatches these days. Also, it would be costly to incorporate such a tech inside the device. Xiaomi devices are usually known for their affordability and using this tech would only increase the price. Apart from a new watch, Xiaomi is also said to be working on the second generation of its Xiaomi Mi Band. The new version will reportedly add in NFC connectivity to the wearable. Unfortunately, Xiaomi has yet to officially announce any specific details about its plans for its first smartwatch or the Mi Band 2.
