Aside from releasing their new flagship smartphones globally, the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Ultra, the brand went on stage during MWC 2024 to also unveil some interesting wearables like the Xiaomi Watch S3. The smartwatch features a circular design with two buttons on the right side (similar to what we saw in the Watch 2, which was also unveiled during the event).

The Watch 3 boasts a 1.43-inch AMOLED screen with over 180 freely available watch faces. The case material is aluminum, and the brand claims that the battery can last up to 15 days on a single charge (without AOD enabled, with AOD enabled it can last up to 5 days).

In terms of the operating system, the device brings the HyperOS, offering more than 150 sports modes (including ten distinct running modes). It also can do health monitoring featuring a 12-channel module for tracking heart rate.

A cool feature is that the users can operate the watch with one hand using wrist movements — Flipping and flicking the wrist can be used for things like rejecting calls, NFC payment (only compatible with MasterCard terminals for now), viewing weather info, and taking photos on the phone using Bluetooth.

Availability and Price

We are still not sure if Xiaomi is bringing this wearable to the US, but if you’re interested in importing it, it will be available in Europe for €149 (~$161). The watch comes with a black/silver bezel and fluororubber strap as standard, with extra colors for bezels and straps (Ocean Blue, Dual-tone Ceramic, Chrome Yellow, and Rainbow) sold separately.
