Xiaomi’s sub-brand Haylou is well-known for its wireless earbuds called Haylou GT2 and GT1. Today I would like to talk about the new fitness watches, which received the name – Xiaomi Haylou LS01.
In this article, I will talk about the full functionality of Haylou LS01 watches, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.
The main criterion for choosing a fitness watch is, of course, price. You can now purchase Haylou LS01 at a low price for just $35.
In terms of functionality, fitness watches are almost no different from their competitors. For example, the LS01 received a 1.3-inch IPS touch screen, IP68 water protection, various sports modes, a 210 mAh battery, and much more.
At present, it will be very difficult to compete in the fitness watch category, since the number of such devices is growing rapidly and their prices are very low. So let’s look at what fitness watches are capable of in our full review.

|Xiaomi Haylou LS01:||Specs|
|Screen:||1.3 inch IPS screen with 240 by 240 pixels|
|Sensor:||Heart-rate monitor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer|
|IP standart:||IP68 waterproof|

Xiaomi Haylou LS01: Unboxing
If you remember the design of the Haylou GT2 wireless earbuds box, then the new fitness watch got a completely similar style.
This is the gray and blue color of the box, where the watch and the model name are printed on the front.
The main technical specifications and equipment are indicated on the back of the box.
Inside the box, I found the watch itself, a silicone black strap, a manual and a charging two-pin magnetic cable.
Xiaomi Haylou LS01: Design
When I first saw the Xiaomi Haylou LS01 I was surprised, since they are an exact copy of the Amazfit Bip. Indeed, the fitness watch received the same size square screen.
The dimensions of the watch are 40.9 x 35.7 x 11.6 mm and weight is 34 grams. They sit well on the wrist and you can even sleep comfortably in them.
As I mentioned, the screen size is 1.3 inches with IPS matrix technology, the resolution was 240 x 240 pixels.
The screen quality is good and reads much better than fitness bracelets, even in sunny weather you can see the information on the watch.
The screen control is touch-sensitive, but on the side, there is a mechanical power button. It is a little taut, but I think that with prolonged use, the button will develop better.
The watch case is made of matte plastic and you should not expect more expensive materials since the price is already low.
Although, if you recall our first review about Kospet Probe, where the price is even lower, but the quality of the materials used is better. For example, the Probe model received an alloy of zinc and magnesium.
On the back of the fitness watch, I see a two-pin magnetic connection for charging and a heart rate sensor.
The new Xiaomi Haylou LS01 watch comes in black and gray. I have a test in black, although you can purchase a lighter version.
It is also worth mentioning the protection against water standard IP68. In general, the fitness watch is completely protected from water and dust, so you can swim in it in the pool to a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.
One of the pluses is the removable strap, which is made of a nice silicone material. It sits well on my wrist and rubs nothing. The standard strap sizes are 22 mm.
The appearance of the Xiaomi Haylou LS01 looks interesting, but it is not unique, but just a lightweight version of the Amazfit Bip. The build quality is at a decent level, but the quality of the materials is not the best, like their competitors.
Xiaomi Haylou LS01: Features and Application
Before talking about the functions, I have a Chinese version of the fitness watch on the review, so the inscriptions will not be in English. This is currently one of the minuses, but I want to please users that the global version will be available in mid-December.
Even the Chinese version of the watch is very intuitive and understandable thanks to the icons.
The main dial shows a lot of useful information, such as time, day of the week, steps, distance, calorie, Bluetooth connection, and battery level.
In the watch settings, you can change the style of the dial and there are five options available.
Let’s walk through the main functions of the Haylou LS01 fitness watch. If you swipe from the bottom up – you will get into the statistics for the current day of steps taken, distance and calories burned.
If you swipe from top to bottom, you will get to the notification menu. As you will notice, English messages are displayed without problems.
If you swipe right, you will get to the quick settings menu. Here you will find constant monitoring of heart rate, the mode of turning on the screen when raising the wrist, turning on night mode and find a phone.
Swipe from right to left you will see the main menu of fitness watches. Here I found sports modes, with a total of 9 views, such as walking, running, cycling and many others. There is also a heart rate, relaxation app, alarm clock, music player, stopwatch, timer, and settings.
In the settings I found – this is the choice of dials, changes in brightness level and information about the watch.
I would like to talk a little about the relaxation application, it is designed to restore breathing after a workout. The fitness watch will tell you how to breathe properly when to inhale and exhale. A handy feature if you have breathing problems.
Haylou LS01 has a Bluetooth wireless connection with version 4.2 and you can install the application on your mobile device to analyze statistics and get complete device settings.
You can install Haylou Sport app names on both Android or iOS devices.
The connection is simple and intuitive, I have no problems. The design of the application looks like the first version of the Mi Fit application from Xiaomi.
The main menu of the application shows statistics of your steps, distance, calories burned. There is also a section on sleep and heart rate.
Xiaomi Haylou LS01: Battery
A 210 mAh battery was installed inside the sports watch case, which is able to work for about two weeks on a single charge. Now I can’t check it, but over the past four days, the device has been discharged by 25%, so the result up to 15 days is quite predictable.
The total charging time through the two-pin magnetic port will be approximately 2.5 hours.
Xiaomi Haylou LS01: Conclusions and Reviews
Has new Haylou’s fitness watch become a bestseller? It seems to me that time will tell, but now I can confidently say that it is a decent watch with a lot of functions for everyday tasks and training.
Xiaomi Haylou LS01 will be a good alternative for fitness bracelets, as they have a large and bright screen and many useful functions.
The appearance of the Haylou fitness watch is very similar to the Amazfit Bip with a square case and a screen.
The battery life is high and you will have to charge the watch in the same way as fitness bracelets – this is every 2 weeks.
Xiaomi Haylou LS01: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
Currently, you can buy the Xiaomi Haylou LS01 fitness watch at a low price for just $35.99 with a 49% discount.
For a small price, you will get a high-quality Haylou LS01 sports watch with a large number of functions, but they will not be completely perfect.
