Xiaomi is a well-known smartphone brand in India as well as around the world. However, smartphones are not its only products. It makes hundreds of other products such as smart TVs, smart home appliances, smartphone accessories, fitness bands, security cameras, and air purifiers. These devices fit into the company’s smartphone and internet-connected (IoT) strategy.
In 2015, Xiaomi had launched a smart weighing scale (Mi Smart Scale) in China and Taiwan. Then, it launched the Mi Body Composition Scale in China as well as in various other markets, including India. Now, it looks like the company is ready to launch the successors to the Mi Smart Scale and the Mi Body Composition Scale.
Mi Smart Scale 2, Mi Body Composition Scale 2 Pass Bluetooth Certification
We’ve discovered that Huami-made Mi Smart Scale 2 and the Mi Body Composition Scale 2, which haven’t been announced yet, have passed through the Bluetooth certification body. This means that we could see the launch of both these upcoming products very soon, at least in Xiaomi’s home market China as well as in Taiwan. Both these products appear to have been developed by Xiaomi-backed IoT brand Huami and have received their Bluetooth certification earlier today. In January, the Mi Smart Scale 2 had passed through NCC (National Communications Commission) certification in Taiwan.
The Mi Body Composition Scale 2 carries model number XMTZC05HM, while the Mi Smart Scale 2 uses the model number XMTZC04HM. The Mi Smart Scale 2 appears to feature Bluetooth 4.2, while the Mi Body Composition Scale 2 appears to have a Bluetooth 5.0 chip for connectivity with a smartphone. Not much else can be known about these products from the Bluetooth certification documents, but we expect the company to bring a few new features compared to their predecessors.
The first-generation Mi Smart Scale not only measures a user’s weight, but also Body Mass Index (BMI) and keeps a record of their weight in the user’s connected smartphone using the Mi Fit app. Users can also create profiles for the whole family and the device can auto-detect a family member. The first-generation Mi Body Composition Scale, which is available in India for INR 1,999, can measure not only weight, but also BMI, body fat, bone mass, muscle mass, visceral fat, basal metabolism, and water percentage in the body.
The Mi Smart Scale and the Mi Body Composition Scale were launched with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and their predecessors will come with Bluetooth 4.2 and Bluetooth 5.0, respectively.
