Valentine's Day 2017: Xiaomi to launch smart guitar, GPS wristwatch and Redmi Note 4X on lovers' day

On February 14, Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 4X, successor to last year's Redmi Note 4.

However impossible the prospect may seem, this is what the company is claiming.

According to a report on GizmoChina, the instructional video for the device shows that LED lights will be incorporated in the smart guitar, which will then glow up in real time as the user finger-plucks the strings. The smart guitar is expected to be available at a price tag of between 1,000-2,000 yuan.

The main reason for this product to stand out is that, although there are many apps and external devices available in the market to help aid in learning guitar, there aren't any instance of basic guitars fitted with any type of smart technology. Time will tell whether the technology is really as smart as Xiaomi claims it to be.

The other product, a smart wrist watch for kids with GPS functionality, is described as an "all-weather device with "space-based radio navigation and positioning system". Yes, with the GPS being attached to the product makes it more like a child tracker disguised as a wristwatch.
