Most major smartphone manufacturers have already launched smartwatches and other have signalled their intentions to. However, there are still some major players left who have not joined the smartwatch party, Xiaomi being among the most famed. However, the Chinese company has long been rumored to be working on a wearable and those rumors are surfacing again.Many reports are suggesting that Xiaomi has been inspired by the Apple Watch, citing the fact that the company is oft accused of copying Apple. However, there are plenty of wearables on the market and Xiaomi is likely just as inspired by them than others, and indeed the company was probably working on its smartwatch before the Apple Watch was announced. The Xiaomi Smart Watch is said to have a large screen, possibly larger than we have previously seen on such a wearable before. It is also said to come with pulse velocity identification which will let users identify themselves through pulse waves. It will also apparently come with a brushed metal frame, much like high end smartphones, and as this is Xiaomi we are hoping the device will be affordable. There is no official data from Xiaomi, but an announcement is expected in the coming months.
