The Xiaomi Watch S1 debuted in China nearly two weeks ago, although the device has only been available for people to order freely since last week. Still, Xiaomi has announced that it has brought nearly a dozen new apps to the smartwatch, outlined below in Chinese. In summary, Xiaomi has added apps for an audiobooks service, along with a Chinese equivalent to Spotify.

Additionally, Xiaomi has brought a health tracking app to the Watch S1, plus a dedicated calendar app. Also, Xiaomi has included third-party food delivery and navigation apps, among others. For reference, the Watch S1 relies on a proprietary OS, rather than Wear OS. According to Xiaomi, the Watch S1 comes with over 110 exercise modes pre-installed and numerous watch faces with which to customise the smartwatch.

Reportedly, Xiaomi plans to release the Watch S1 outside China as well. A specific launch date has not been posed yet, but @stufflistings asserts that Xiaomi will sell the Watch S1 globally. The leaker adds that the smartwatch is coming to Asian markets soon, too. If that does happen, we would expect Xiaomi to start teasing the Watch S1 on its social media channels within the next month or so.
