  1. I appreciate this article on the Mi watch.  I have been looking at smart watches and they are pretty pricey.  The one thing that stands out with this watch is the gps feature.  I do a lot of hiking and would find built in gps important.  Along with that, the long battery life is impressive.  My main questions is about how it is charged.  I am going to reread the article again to see if it is charged with a mini usb.  I am in the market for a smart watch so I am bookmarking this page to take some time to do a bit more research.

I would like to know what is going on with my heart and how much of each activity I am doing so i can know if I am achieving anything. I like the GPS feature and the availability of the watch in black. Thank you for this review. It is worth checking out.
