After much anticipation, the successor to the beloved Mi Band 4 has arrived in Nepal, it’s the Mi Band 5. And it brings some changes that will most likely improve users’ experience over its predecessor.
The front is where lies the major change, it’s the AMOLED display that stretches from 0.95-inch to 1.1-inch with numbers of official and third-party watch faces to choose from. You can also set animated watch faces on the go.
Much like the Mi Band 4, the Mi Band 5 offers pretty much similar sensors, including an accelerometer, heart rate monitor, barometer, and gyroscope. The software, though, has been tweaked with 11 “professional modes” as Xiaomi calls. These modes will provide insight and precise tracking. For instance, the Mi Band 5 can now identify five swimming styles automatically. Meanwhile, it comes with water-resistant for up to 50 meters.
There’s also the PAI score or so-called Personal Activity Intelligence score, which offer insight on how productive was your workout as well as your overall fitness.
The heart monitoring is now improved to detect abnormalities and notify you immediately, just like the Apple Watch. The PPG sensor is now 50% more accurate over its predecessor.
The sleep tracking feature is intact, but now it can provide you data about your REM sleep.
Xiaomi says the Mi Band 5 has 14 days of battery life. If not, you can always hook up the magnetic charger on the back of the band — this solves the cumbersome of having to detach the band for charging on the prior generation.
