The Xiaomi Mi Band is one of the newest brands involved in the Fitness Tracker accessories, it features many functions that stand to compete with the other brands. The Mi Band comes with a mobile phone application called Mi Fit which are available from the Play Store and also on iTunes.
If you own a Xiaomi smart phone, you get an extra perk: Mi Band is able to automatically unlock your phone via Bluetooth. For another Android phone this feature will not work, but if you can install the Xiaomi MIUI OS on your Android based device, this feature will work perfectly.
For Sharing options, Xiaomi Mi Band now supports all social networks such as WeChat, QQ, Weibo, WhatsApp, BBM, Facebook, Viber, tango, Skype, Twitter and almost all other social platforms as well. You can also sync Mi Band with WeChat app account to get daily updates.
The Xiaomi Mi Band with rubber strap looks simple and minimal, and also go with pretty much any outfit. Xiaomi declared the band is hypoallergenic, which means you will not receive any of the stimulus after wear it for a long time. The actual tracking dial can be easily removed and also exchanged with various bands for those who want a different number of colors. That is almost exactly the same size as the Fitbit, but has a softer and rounded design compared to the Fitbit sharp and square features.
Once Mi Band app is downloaded and installed, it will automatically switch to the language setting on your phone, Chinese or English. Pair Mi Band to your phone via Bluetooth is very fast and requiring only a few clicks to establish. Enter some personal stats like age, height, weight, and other personal information. No need to take your phone with you when on a walk or run, the app will automatically sync when you’re back in Bluetooth range.
You can set a daily goal for how many steps you aim for, which by default is set at 8,000. You can also set the color of Mi Band light according to your mood and environment. The Mi Band will light up in your favorite colors. Lights can be difficult to see under direct sunlight.
Wake-up alarm in the application, unfortunately, does not sync with any other alarm clock apps that you may have installed. The gentle vibration alarm three times and then turn off. No snooze or other option to make it continue to vibrate until you give some kind of input, like a tap or other gesture.
The Xiaomi Mi Band can also be set to vibrate after a missed call, but no other notification available for SMS or messages which is a little bit disappointing. To adjust the settings of the missed call, it buzzes in just three seconds after a call comes in, it works like a charm.
The Xiaomi Mi Band boasts a 30 day battery life which is very impressive. When it is running out of battery, a few minutes of charging and its ready for more 30 days. That means less stress about the battery capacity and spend more time with your device.
The Xiaomi Mi Band is comfortable to wear during sleep and shower, Mi Band is water resistant, but not completely waterproof. That means you can take a bath with it, but maybe you will not take it into the pool.
The tracker seems well-made and durable, which is not something we used to say about the Xiaomi products.
