Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite could launch in India soon. The new wearable from Xiaomi has just bagged the Bureau of Indian Standards certification. 

According to tipster Mukul Sharma, a new smartwatch with “REDMIWT02” was spotted on Indian BIS certification site. Although the model number corresponds to Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite which was announced back in December, the certification site reveals brand as Redmi. So, the Mi Watch Lite might launch in India as Redmi Watch.

But, in China, there is also a Redmi Watch which is sold separately. The major difference these two models comes in terms of GPS and number of sports mode supported.
