By the way, this is a global version of the watch, so all inscriptions on the box and user manual are in English. This is very good.

Design

Talking about the design of IMILAB KW66, I think it looks very similar to Samsung Galaxy Active smartwatch. Xiaomi watch has the same round dial with 3D glass on the top.

The body and a physical button on the right side are made of metal.

The watch is really compact. The diameter of the dial is 45mm, while the thickness is only 12.7mm.

The strap is made of TPU, and it has a width of 22mm. As you can see, it is interchangeable. You can buy any other strap with the same width and use it with the Xiaomi IMILAB KW66 watch.

The back of the watch looks very interesting. First, I thought that the watch supports wireless charging, but it doesn’t. The back of the case is made by IML process. It is smooth and comfortable to touch.

Here we can also see a heart rate sensor and two charging contacts.

By the way, the screen has not only 3D glass but also it is curved. Xiaomi IMILAB KW66 really looks expensive and premium, but the price is only about $50.

The diagonal of the display is 1.28 inches. The resolution is 240 by 240 pixels. This is a full-color TFT panel, and it is also full touch.

However, I think that the brightness is not enough. It can be difficult to see something on the screen in sunny weather.

Also, the new Xiaomi watch is waterproof by the IP68 standard. You can wash the watch or even swim in the pool with it.

Now, let’s look at the functions of Xiaomi IMILAB KW66.

Functions

This is a minimalistic watch face of IMILAB KW66. I really like it. However, there is very little information, only time and date. Fortunately, there are six other watch faces available. You can change them by the press and hold on the screen.

By the way, IMILAB KW66 supports customizable watch face through the app on smartphone. Later I will it to you.

Swipe down from the main screen to open the quick settings menu. Here we can see the date, battery level, find phone, screen brightness, do not disturb mode, and settings menu.

Xiaomi IMILAB KW66 also has a menu with all functions: training, heart rate, status, sleeping, stopwatch, message, and settings.

The new Xiaomi watch doesn’t have a built-in microphone and speaker, so you cannot make or receive phone calls.

IMILAB KW66 REVIEW: You Haven’t Heard About This Xiaomi Watch!

You know, actually, Xiaomi IMILAB KW66 is not a real smartwatch. This is a fitness watch. The functions are quite standard for fitness watches in 2020, but I like that it has many watch faces, music control, and 12 sports modes.

Application

As I already said, the application on the smartphone is called GloryFit. You can download it on Android and iOS devices.

On the main screen of the app, you can see your daily activity, such as steps, distance, and calories, heart rate recording, and sleep record.

The next tab is Sports. You can choose the sport mode, for example, running, and track your activity while playing sports.

All the settings are in the tab Device.

The first one is Dial settings. As I already said, the watch has six watch faces out of the box, but you can download more in the app. There are more than 40 watch faces available. You can also use a custom watch face with your image and font color.

The next function is heart rate monitoring. You can turn it on and off.

Also, I recommend you to turn on call reminder and app reminder.

There is also a sedentary reminder, smart alarm clock, raise a hand to activate the display, and do not disturb.

In the universal settings menu, you can find the following functions: shake to take a picture, find the bracelet, SMS reminder, on-screen time, time system, and device language. By the way, the watch supports many different languages, including English, Spanish, Russian, etc.

Battery

The battery is another feature of the Xiaomi IMILAB KW66 watch. It has a capacity of 340mAh, but I think you are interested in real battery life. It is about 30 days on a single charge.

IMILAB KW66 REVIEW: You Haven’t Heard About This Xiaomi Watch!

This is very good battery life for the watch with a color screen.

Conclusion

You know, Xiaomi IMILAB KW66 doesn’t have any special functions. They can do the same as other budget fitness watches. However, I really like the build quality of this watch and design. IMILAB KW66 looks and feels more expensive than it actually is.

IMILAB KW66 REVIEW: You Haven’t Heard About This Xiaomi Watch!

If you are looking for a real watch with a big color screen, but not a fitness tracker, like Xiaomi Mi Band 5, then IMILAB KW66 is a good option.
