Chinese brand Xiaomi has officially launched the successor of first gen Miband with a new Miband 2. The device comes with a 0.4-inch OLED display and is priced at US$23. You can grab now from Gearbest, an eCommerce website, for a slightly inflated price of US$40.
The Xiaomi Miband 2’s OLED display now shows the time, a number of footsteps with distance walked in kilometers, heartbeat, calories burnt, and many more. You can customize which data to display on the screen. The device can be placed on the left wrist like a wrist watch with data being accessed by either lifting your wrist or by using the capacitive button located below it.
What we really liked about the Miband 2 is the display is scratch resistance and being water resistant with an IP67 certification. The display is vivid, bright, and the sunlight legibility is top notch. Like the 2-year-old Miband, the Miband tracks your sleep pattern. With the inclusion of an inbuilt heartbeat sensor and ADI accelerometer with improved algorithms, this fitness tracker will certainly help track your fitness.
While the other fitness tracker running out of juice in a couple of days, Xiaomi Miband 2 lasts for 20 days thanks to its power-efficient OLED display and a large 70 mAh battery. With the second generation Bluetooth 4.0, the device can be paired with Android and iOS devices. If you work continuously during office hours, the Miband 2 monitors your activity and alerts you that you have been stationary for a longer period of time and suggest you go out and take some air.
It is available in black, blue, green and orange, and will go on sale on June 7th in China. There’s no news from Xiaomi on when it’ll go on sale outside of China, but international users can buy from the link provided below:
