Xiaomi has expanded its product range even further, unveiling a new pair of smart sports footwear under its Mijia platform.
The smart sports footwear is called “90 Minutes Ultra Smart Sportswear”. It is developed by Runmi Technology powered by Intel’s Curie chip. The 90 Minutes Ultra Smart Sportswear is the first smart shoes of Xiaomi and it was designed for professional athletes and runners.

The Intel’s compact Curie chip stores all the fitness related data of the wearer including distance covered, speed, calories lost, and more.

The Intel chip can be used up to 60 days with one full charge.
The new smart sports footwear from Xiaomi will be available in four color variants: Black and Surf Blue for men and Black and Pink for women. There is also a special “Blue Edition” of the shoes, which glows in the dark. It features luminous material to make the runner visible to motorists and passersby at night.
