After launching the Mi Band 4 (Review), Xiaomi could be preparing to announce another product into its fitness lineup. The company is reportedly working on a smartwatch that could be based on Google's smartwatch OS called Wear OS.

9to5Google took a closer look at the Wear OS application (version 2.28) that launched recently and came across a new field that mentions "Mi Wear". Currently, there's only the 'Mi Fit' app on Google's Play Store and the 'Mi Health' app on its own app store.
