“The Mijia Sneakers 2, launched in China last year, bring fitness metrics to a wearable shoe format, and may be soon launched in India as well.”
Xiaomi has teased the upcoming launch of a smart shoe under its sub-brand, Mijia. The smart sneakers were initially launched in China, and offer fitness parameters in the same nature as wearable fitness trackers, by embedding the chip within the shoe. While Xiaomi India has not specifically revealed the name of the product, the teaser is amply described to reveal what it will be.
The shoes in question are likely to be the Mijia Smart Sneakers 2. The second generation of the smart sneakers were launched in China in 2018, at 199 Yuan (approx. Rs 2,100), and offer a host of visual and performance improvements over its predecessor. It is available in four colours — black, floral blue, floral grey, orange and white. The sneakers reportedly sport five-step uni-moulding design, along with a special material design in the mid-sole of the shoe. It also gets a high elastic knit upper layer, making it a competent pair of sneakers and not just smart shoes.
