So far, it’s only been announced for China, where it will go on sale from December 1, but it’s entirely possible the Xiaomi Redmi smartwatch will get a global launch at some point. If and when it does though it might get a different name, as a remarkably similar wearable called the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite has been spotted on an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) listing. 

The Redmi Watch would have to pass through the FCC before being sold in the US, so it’s highly likely we’ll see it there at least in some form.
