People are becoming more health-conscious these days, taking necessary precautions in every walk of life, Xiaomi urges them to step up and stay fit with their latest fitness tracker gadget – the Mi Band 2 . Yes, the Mi Band 2 is finally here, for the fitness conscious minds of India.
The 2nd edition of Mi Band has got many interesting advantages over the previous one. One noticeable upgrade is the OLED display, which on a quick peek gives you the time, and then with the tap of a button gives you the step count and heart rate.
This glossy black display is power efficient and UV coated to prevent scratches and fingerprints. The button next to the display is anodized and etched with 0.05mm ripples for a better touch.
Coming to the sensitivity and accuracy, Xiaomi has tweaked up the pedometer algorithm for filtering out unnecessary movements and errors to produce accurate results. The built-in heart rate sensor helps to estimate the duration and intensity of workout based on the readings. The idle alert feature with gentle buzz motivates you to keep on moving.
The Mi Fit app (available for both android and ios devices) helps you to pair the band for monitoring your daily workouts in real time. The statistical analysis of your activity via the app helps to improve your performance over time. Moreover, the sleep tracker measures the length, quality, and pattern of your sleep cycles and notifies you about the same.
However, the band can also act as a standalone device to gather the data and later sync with the app. For pairing with your phone, the band is equipped with 2nd generation low-energy Bluetooth 4.0 technology to provide fast, stable, connections while consuming less power. This also ensures a long battery life and stable data transmissions.
In addition to the fitness features, the band acts as a key to unlock your android smartphone. It also incorporates call and message alert feature when paired with your smartphone.
Astounding 20-day battery life – with the power efficient sensors, display, and connectivity, you need to worry less about the battery life and more about your fitness.
