Xiaomi have surprised everyone, by launching a fitness wearable device, the Mi Band.
The device has a fitness monitor, a sleep tracker, can act as an alarm clock and even unlock your phone.
It doesn’t run on Android Wear, but it still packs some useful features, and uses a power-efficient Bluetooth chip and accelerometer. You can use the Mi Band for 30 days on a single charge.
Features of the Mi Band:
- Fitness monitor & sleep tracker
- Sleep-cycle smart alarm
- Unlock your Mi phone without a password
- 30-day standby power
- Water resistant (IP67)
- Stylish band options (incl. wrap-around and leather)
What is incredible about the Xiaomi Mi Band, is the price. Why don’t you take a guess? Is it $100? $200? Not even close.
It costs Yuan Renmibi 79 , which is approximately $12 or Rs. 720. You read that right!
Sadly there is no information about the availability of the wearable, which should sell like hot cakes, once it hits the market.
