This information was found in the latest version of MIUI for developers. The caption in Chinese at the top reads “Wireless Reverse Charging” and below shows the clock located on the back of the Xiaomi smartphone.
The text below it reads: “Please place devices that support Qi wireless charging (mobile phones, wearable devices, etc.) on the back of the phone.” There is also a switch in this section of the menu that allows the phone to stop reverse wireless battery charging when the battery level drops to a certain value.

Xiaomi announced the first smartwatch Mi Watch powered by Snapdragon Wear 3100 in November 2019, followed by several more devices. The new model should be the successor to the original watch.
