Xiaomi‘s Mijia brand has launched another innovative smart product, this time it is the 90 Minutes Ultra Smart running shoes. The Smart running shoes or sports foot wear comes with a built-in Intel Curie chip which is very small in size, about the size of a button but enough to store vital fitness data in real time.
The footwear is developed in China by the Shanghai Runmi Technology Co. Ltd and is said to be designed for professional athletes.

The sole of the shoes also has a design with arch support balance sheet, anti-skid wear and other design. The Smart sports footwear also comes with air cushion and an antibacterial removable insole.

The chip can stay up to 60 days without need for a charge.
