Xiaomi has launched the Mi Band 2 in India which now comes with a display and heart-rate sensor. The original Mi Band sparked a revolution in the wearables space and has since then been one of the highest selling fitness bands in India.
Mi Band 2 Specs and Features
Coming to specs, the Mi Band 2 comes with 0.42-inch OLED display which is covered by a scratch resistant glass and anti-fingerprint coating. It can show steps, time and heart-rate. Which brings me to the point of fitness, where the new fitness band from Xiaomi seems to get its heading right.
It now comes with a heart-rate sensor for continuous activity monitoring then there's automatic sleep tracking as well which will benefit from the heart-rate sensor for better accuracy. All of this is powered by a 700 mAh battery which Xiaomi claims is good enough to last 20 days on a single charge, we are inclined to believe this claim given the company was quite on the money with the 30-day battery-life on the original Mi Band.
Xiaomi has been able to keep the weight down to just 7 grams and has also made changes to the band's material to make it more comfortable. The new Mi Band 2 is still IP67 rated for dust and water resistance.
MI Band 2 Pricing and Availability
The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 has been priced at Rs. 1999 for the default black strap variant. You will however be able to buy different colored straps in blue, green, orange, pink and other colors later.
It would be available from Mi.com on September 27 at 12PM and later on September 30 at 12AM from both mi.com and Amazon.
