Unboxing The Xiaomi Imilab W12 Smartwatch
It is time to unravel the magic of the Imilab W12 by bringing it out of the box. Actually, from the descriptions, you may have wondered how this watch with a large display and big battery will remain thin and slim-fit. Thickness is a problem that most smartwatches are known for.
Lift out the of the box things like charging cord (it is charging method is magnetic) and there is the instruction manual.
The strap is rubber, kind of. But looking deeply at it, this doesn’t feel like the ones you get on Apple smartwatches. The screen is indeed big brown, and there are the buttons – the two of them – one for powering on the device, and the other for the workout process.
The heart rate sensor is placed at the rear. That’s reasonable because it has to actually touch the human body before it senses anything. The charging also takes place at that bottom side.
Turn the watch on to see the Imilab logo. Wow! It is bright. Most people will love it. If you go on any outdoor activity, you can have the display of this smartwatch bright always and easy to see.
Looking at it now, you see the date, the time, heart rate calories, burn pedometer, and you can also see the GPS. You may link the GPS to your smartphone.
Swipe left, or swipe right to see other screens.
If you’ve been walking, you can see how many kilometers you’ve gone, and if you’re running, you get the information as well. Check your heart rate while you walk and run to see the difference. You’re healthy if it keeps between the 75 to 95 mark when you’re steadily walking.
You just have to start small because there are so many features in this smartwatch that it takes pretty much time to go through all of them. Swiping to the left can show you training statuses. It is better if you wore the device before swiping left.
Another thing you could be aching to do is downloading apps, and pairing your smartphone with your smartwatch.
