Xiaomi Mijia Quartz Watch Review
When speaking of watches, many people will immediately think of the smartwatches released by major smartphone manufacturers. Those watches are often full of technology. But there are many people still liking the traditional quartz watches. They would even sacrifice technology in benefit to have a solid dial. The reason is obvious – it is elegant enough. However, young customers do not have to worry about it as well. Recently, Xiaomi has launched the Mijia Quartz Watch that combines features of traditional watches and smartwatches.
The Mijia Quartz Watch has three colors of black, white, and gray. We are reviewing the black version.
Xiaomi Mijia Quartz Watch Design
There is only one instruction manual in the box and the watch itself.
The Mijia Quartz Watch continues the minimalist style of Xiaomi/Mijia. The dial is cobblestone-shaped. The mirror looks like a drop of water. It uses a mineral coated glass, by the way. On the surface, there is also added an anti-fingerprint film and an anti-disease hard film. The glass transparency is 93%. It is also more wear-resistant, pressure-resistant, and bump-proof during use. It is said that the black version of the disk has been treated with CD pattern. So when looking at it under the sun, it will show different textures.
Unlike the smartwatches, the dial of the Mijia Quartz Watch is not a screen. Instead, it uses a large dial and a small dial. The large dial is used to display the time. But there are only the hour and minute hands, and the second hand is missing. The small dial displays the step count. The minimum display accuracy is 400 steps, while the maximum is 20,000 steps. You can also view historical steps, calorie consumption, walking mileage, and more through the Mijia App.
The strap is made of an Italian imported top layer cowhide material. The front and back sides of the strap are treated with special techniques, and the comfort and air permeability are greatly improved when worn. Surprisingly, the strap is easy to disassemble, with a unique latch. So it can be removed in seconds and replaced with other straps that you like.
The crown on the right side of the dial is not used to adjust the time in the traditional sense. It is just a physical button for power on and restart. Combining traditional things with the science and technology is exactly what we want to see.
Xiaomi Mijia Quartz Watch Performance
When speaking of Mijia products, we can’t forget the Mijia APP. The Mijia Quartz Watch is no exception.
There is a built-in low-power Bluetooth 4.0 module. So you just have to open the Mijia APP to connect the watch and adjust time automatically. Of course, you can also manually set it in the APP. For those who travel frequently, the ‘World Time’ is a finding. Just add a city and you can switch local time with one click.
Not only that, but the Mijia Quartz Watch also supports an interval reminder, a call reminder, and an alarm clock function. Unfortunately, the call alert feature only supports systems with MIUI 9 and iOS 9 or higher.
Though there are many features inherited from the smartwatches, the Mijia Quartz Watch comes with many features found on traditional watches. Say, there is no need to recharge the watch. It uses a button battery, which will serve you for up to 6 months.
The Mijia Quartz Watch also supports 30 meters waterproof function. So you can wear it when raining, but it’s not recommended to left on your hand when swimming or bathing.
The Xiaomi Mijia Quartz Watch is a very comfortable product to wear every day. It weighs only 42g. So most likely you will forget about its existence. The interval reminder, as well as the alarm clock functions, are also very convenient. The vibration feedback of this watch is what we need. We can continue mentioning its advantages, but you saw everything yourself.
The Mijia quartz watch is priced at 349 yuan. The traditional and simple appearance is matched with the basic functions of the bracelet. It retains the beauty of the traditional watch without losing the technical model. So there is every chance to compete with other hybrid watches such as the Lenovo Watch 9 and X successfully.
Buy the Mijia Quartz Watch at $69.99 on Banggood.
