MIUI Watch

UX Research | UX Design | UX Prototyping | Design System

Built the first generation of MIUI watch UX&UI system. I am responsible for the interactive experience design and system animation design of Xiaomi Watch. Produced core applications and interactive process designs for over 300 system functions. Established a wearable interactive system component library to promote the high-fidelity restoration capability of the full experience design.

Project Introduction


The Xiaomi smartwatch was first released on November 5, 2019, with a 1.78-inch square screen.  At that time, the watch software used a deep customization solution based on Google WearOS;  But due to Google's many limitations on WearOS, we are not satisfied with our long-term goals;  The MIUI Watch system was born.

My main contributions

1. Wearable Design System:
I worked closely with UX design team to build Xiaomi's first wearable design system. It includes interaction process, user flowchart, UI component library, motion design specification. 

2. Flowchart:
I Finished the 45 core applications and user flowchart covering 300 system functions with two other UX designers.

3. Motion Design:
I used high-fidelity prototype tools (Origami) to fully restore the final effect of the interaction design;  Develop a pseudo-code dynamic expression scheme for design team to communicate with development team. 

Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro was officially launched on August 11th, 2022.

1. Prototype

I created wireframe and interactive prototypes with a focus on UX motion design.

2. Component

3. Motion Design

In order to allow the development to perfectly restore the interactive effect, I worked in UX design team to  develop a pseudo-code dynamic expression scheme. Now designers can use it to disassemble the dynamic effects step by step, and deliver the front-end restoration after parameterized description.
