Last year, the Mi Band was met with critical success for the features it offered at a ridiculously cheap price. Xiaomi wants to keep up the momentum by releasing the second-generation of its fitness band, the Mi Band 1S.
Compatible with iOS and Android, the Xiaomi Mi Band 1s keeps track of your heart rate, sleep habit, calorie count as you do your business. It can track your steps a la a pedometer and vibrate when you have a phone notification. It’s also waterproof, being able to survive for 30 minutes under one meter of water. Mobile users who have MIUI 6 powered Xiaomi smartphones can use the fitness band to access their locked phones using the “smart unlock” feature.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 1s is reasonably light and small, weighing only 5.5g and measuring 37 x 13.6 x 9.9mm. With a 45mAh battery onboard, the band can reportedly last up to 20 days on a single charge.
The price of the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is $15 or approximately Php700. Its release date is today, but only in China (for now?). Like almost every product that Xiaomi releases, you’ll need to do some digging to know where you can buy the fitness band.
