If you personally know me, you already know that I am into running. I have been using the Xiaomi Mi Band for quite some time now and although I don’t really review products on my blog, I would really like to give you a quick overview of this handy fitness band.
The Mi Band is basically a simple rubber strip with a piece of aluminium hardware that does the entire job. In addition to monitoring your steps, it also monitors your sleep and heart rate (heart rate is what we need to measure the fat burning zone)
The official app that brings this band to life, Mi Fit, keeps your fitness records and streaks handy. The band can also vibrate to give you notifications for incoming calls, alarms etc.
You don’t have to keep your phone’s bluetooth or location turned on all day for the band to work. The band will automatically sync the entire data with your phone when you open the app and turn on the location and bluetooth. The band is also water resistant (IP 67) and Xiaomi claims a 30 day battery life to which I will mostly agree to.
Bottomline, I do recommend this model if you are just getting started into the active lifestyle. If you are into running (like me) or like to take long walks to keep fit, this is a must.
Update – The reason I don’t like to review products is that they get old. I know the Mi Band is pretty old but the newer models are much better and have better functionalities. If I have been successful in selling you the idea to buy this product and start your fitness journey, here’s the amazon link
