Since the existence of Imilab as one of Xiaomi’s ecosystem brands, the company has been doing so well in the manufactures of smartwatches. Sometime in 2020, they released the Imilab Kw66 smartwatch which made a huge sale from the day it was introduced to the market till today. However, the company also has made another smartwatch which they call the imilab W12 smartwatch.
Although, these smartwatches can also be seen as fitness tracking devices as a result of the features they possess. Nevertheless, there are a few features that we would be comparing in both the Imilab Kw66 and the newly introduced Imilab W12 smartwatch.
Starting the comparison with Imilab’s Kw66 smartwatch design, the company put in a lot of work in the design and appearance of this particular watch. It adopts a very nice and decent circle shape because of the round screen and the sensors were neatly attached at the back of the smartwatch. Furthermore, Imilab attached flexible and easy-to-wear straps that were made of fine rubber making the smartwatch more attractive to the eyes. Although W12 has a durable rubber strap that looks rugged but in terms of fashionable appearance, I would prefer the straps on Kw66 regardless of its flexibility.
On the Imilab Kw66, there is just one button by the right side which is used to turn Off/ On or send return back to the home screen command. While the latest Imilab W12 has two elegant-looking buttons by the side of the smartwatch which is also used to send commands to the smartwatch. The first button at the top of W12 is the Power On/ Off and return back to the home screen, while the second button serves as a shortcut button to the sports modes. In this aspect, it is very obvious the Imilab company made an improvement in order to facilitate or ease the controls. Apart from the presence of these side buttons, the control pattern remains on both smartwatches remains the same.
