Instead, the global version of the company's smartwatch simply arrived 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.
Here's a full rundown of the Mi Watch's feature set:
- Casing colours: Black, navy blue, beige
- TPU strap colours: Black, orange, navy blue, beige, olive, yellow
- Dimensions: 49.5×53.35×11.8mm
- Weight: 32 grams (w/o strap)
- Display: Circular 1.39in 454×454 AMOLED, touch-enabled, protected by Gorilla Glass 3, up to 450nits max brightness
- OS: Proprietary w/ 100+ watch faces, custom watch face support from photos + emoji support in notifications

Despite what appears to be a pretty rich feature set that challenges the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and the Apple Watch SE, Xiaomi is aiming at the affordable end of the market with aggressive pricing of just £119 (not to mention a week-long early bird special of just £99.99, at launch).
You can pick the Mi Watch up, right now, from Xiaomi's own online store.
