Alexa read me a bedtime story

If you’re not new to Xiaomi launches, the Mi Watch Revolve Active sounds quite familiar and that’s because it’s awfully similar to the Mi Watch Revolve we reviewed back in October. The only difference is that the Active version comes with Alexa built-in and now you can summon Amazon’s AI overlord to micromanage your daily reminders and music. There’s still the same 1.39in AMOLED screen with a 454×454 pixels resolution and 450 nits of peak brightness. It’s bright and sharp and we’ve used it to believe it. Expect a full review soon along with the Mi 11 Lite. And if you’re particularly looking to sweat through the monsoons this season, the Active has 117+ workout modes and an Airoha GPS chip that supports synchronous positioning by 4 major positioning systems - GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BDS. So if you’re underwater (stay above 50meters for water resistance to work), on a hill (It also has VO2 Max for oxygen level reading) or sitting on your desk worrying about work (It tracks stress level too) the Mi Watch Revolve Active will help you stay updated with your health and even sync it with Strava and Apple Health apps. The watch is available for ₹9,999 starting 25th June.
