Instead, the newly-unveiled global version of the company's smartwatch simply arrives as the 'Xiaomi Mi Watch'.

Highlights include support for 117 sport tracking modes (in Xiaomi's own words, 17 are "precisely-tuned professional sport modes" whatever that means for the other 100), up to 16 days of battery life on a single charge, 5ATM swim-proofing, plus GPS, heart rate, sleep and blood oxygen tracking.

The casing plays host to two hardware buttons, one of which is a dedicated sports button to jump into workouts from anywhere within the UI.

The company didn't yet reveal a formal launch date but the Mi Watch is expected to hit the European market soon, alongside the newly-announced Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro smartphones.
