Xiaomi Mi band, a wearable activity tracker is one of the most famous bands in the world. It was disclosed by Xiaomi in a Xiaomi launch event, held on 22nd July 2014. The most attractive feature of Mi band is a touch-capacitive sensor having an ability to detect skin. It also consists of an Actimetric sensor, which may sound new to you, used to measure and monitor human rest and activity cycles.
Now, Xiaomi is on its way to launch the fifth version of its Mi band series on June 11, 2020 and the inaugural ceremony will take place in China. It is expected that Mi band 5 will have many interesting features along with NFC functionality. It means that this smart wearable can be used to pay the bills in stores, supermarkets and it will make “mobile contactless payments” possible.
It is expected that this new version of Mi band series will consist of blood-oxygen saturation sensor called SpO2 sensor which is linked with breathing and stress management. The user will be able to receive guidance on how to control/maintain breathing according to his/her stress level. The band will come with a stress meter and different exercises related to breathing in order to keep you calm and relax. The user will be able to enjoy Do Not Disturb mode. This feature will make the alarms and notifications silent for the time variations of 30, 60 or 120 minutes according to the user’s choice. In addition to this, it can also track women’s health.
Swimming, cycling, running, and skipping activity tracking modes will also be supported by Mi band 5. Besides this, 5 more activity tracking modes are expected which include yoga, indoor rowing, indoor cycling, elliptical machine and rope jumping.
As far as the display is concerned, it is bigger than the 0.95-inch screen of Band 4. It gives an appealing view of the screen with a 1.2-inch display. And to your wonder, it comes with the amazing support of Amazon Alexa. Its avenger’s themed watch face gives a sense of Avengers Limited Edition.
Along with all these features, Mi band 5 will serve as a remote shutter, which means it will be able to control the paired phone’s cameras.
Now the most interesting feature is that you do not have to pull out the pill from cradle to charge your band. But you will have to charge it with the help of a magnetic charger when your band’s battery is low. Previously, it was very hectic to disengage the pill from band and then put it on a charge. It was a cumbersome task.
The regular users of the Mi band are going to love this feature as it is going to relieve them from the pain of pulling out the pill every time to charge.
The modernist design of this band has a wonderful display without the border line and less bazel areas. Some random resources speculate that the physical appearance of Xiaomi Mi band 5 will be similar to its earlier version Xiaomi Mi band 4 but it is not confirmed and the suspense is all around.
So, Xiaomi fans be ready to warmly welcome your latest fitness tracker as it is going to rock the crowd with its interesting features and beautiful appearance.
