Xiaomi will supposedly release its Mi Band 5 in the upcoming June. Or if it gets late, the company will most likely ship it in early July. Even Huami, the company behind the manufacturing, has been vocal several times regarding launch within 2020.
The Mi Band 5 is said to be a major leap from its predecessor in terms of functions. It’ll reportedly come with an ability to index the oxygen saturation in the blood (SpO2). Keeping the latest COVID-19 in mind, this could actually help to detect the vulnerability prior to an actual symptom.
Similarly, the wearable gets a bigger screen, NFC, menstrual cycle tracking function, and Amazon Alexa support. A notable integration is the Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) indexing. The PAI health asserts the index to be the first scientific determinant for an activity thereby reducing cardiovascular diseases risk by 25% on average. It uses the pulse data along with the characteristics such as age, gender, height, weight, etc. in order to determine the index.
Also, Xiaomi is rebranding a Redmi Band into its Mi Band 4C, both with the same model code – HMSH01GE.
