Unlike its first smartwatch which was boxy, the Haylou Solar Smartwatch carried a round body design. The design is very minimalist with a 1.28-inch touch screen with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels.
The body is also waterproof with an IP68 rating, so it can be invited to swim or be invited to exercise in any weather conditions. The Haylou Solar Smartwatch strap is equipped with a 22mm silicone rubber strap.
The advantages of the Xiaomi Haylou Solar Smartwatch are in its features. With a very cheap selling price, the Haylou Solar Smartwatch brings a series of contemporary features that a smart watch must have.
To support sports activities, the Haylou Solar Smartwatch provides 12 sports mode options from running, walking, basketball, football, cycling, to Yoga. This smart watch is also equipped with a heart rate sensor, can track sleep patterns and count calories. Another feature, the Haylou Solar Smartwatch has also provided cell phone search functions, music, weather info, notifications, and breathing exercises.
Haylou Solar Smartwatch carries a battery with a capacity of 340mAh. For standard use without activating the heart rate monitoring feature, this smartwatch can be used for up to about 30 days. If the heart rate monitoring feature is active, the battery can only last up to 24 hours. Unfortunately, despite carrying the name “Solar” this smartwatch does not support solar charging or recharge the battery through sunlight.
The Haylou Solar Smartwatch is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones. This smartwatch will be available on the market from May 2020 with a selling price of only US$21.
