MI Watches Revolve Design and Display:
Xiaomi has got it best when it comes to design and features. MI watches revolve a circular display with a thin black bezel bordering it. It is set inside a shiny metal body with two buttons on the right.
The button on the top of the revolving is the power button and it can also be used to bring up menus while using the watch. The second button is a shortcut key and can be assigned to a quick workout or a different function you choose.
The Mi Watch Revolve has a 46mm case which makes it bigger than some of the other wearables that are offered to you in the market and its big display is easy to read and packs in more content on each screen, it might seem and feel too big if you have skinny hands.
You might also unintentionally hit the watch while walking around, something I did in the first few days that I was using it. Xiaomi has raised the case around the 1.39-inch AMOLED display. It is bigger than you get in Mi Smart Band 5.
Which helps maintain it safe in the occurrence of accidental knocks. After 15 days of use, I can say that there are no scratches or damage on the display of my review unit.

I also covered a distance of 700m, and the device calculated 710m. Distance and step tracking show slight differences, but not enough to worry a casual user.
At the end of the day, you will still be able to calculate a fair amount of steps you have taken and the distance you have covered.
Sleep tracking is accurate, and the Mi Revolve does a good job of tracking various stages of sleep. It shows records in phases labeled Awake, Deep Sleep, Light Sleep, and REM.
Also guides you to get better sleep quality. I do not wear the Mi Revolve to sleep every night, as I found it to be a bit too bulky to sleep comfortably with it on my wrist.

it is more like a fitness band in the body of a smartwatch. Even one can use a watch revolve for heart rate monitor, stress monitor, compass, step count, notifying msg.
