Xiaomi also launched its latest Smart Band 8 in the Global Market alongside the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro, after it was launched in China back in April. It has a 1.62-inch AMOLED display as last year’s model with a 192 x 490-pixel resolution, 326 PPI pixel density, and a maximum brightness of 600 nits. The Smart Band 8 boasts up to 150+ training modes, as well as a smart health assistant that includes capabilities like SpO2 monitoring, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and female period tracking.
For the first time, the Smart Band 8 features an updated quick-release mechanism and a stylish metallic texture, along with two fresh middle frame color options: "light gold" and "bright black." In addition to a range of traditional straps, Xiaomi also provides innovative choices like a necklace-style strap and a leather strap designed specifically for the band.
The Xiaomi Smart Band 8 delivers real-time monitoring and performance statistics, offering users accurate workout information. For runners, the 'Pebble Mode' can be attached to a shoe buckle, providing comprehensive running data and evaluating running posture to improve overall performance.
The Xiaomi Smart Band 8, driven by the advanced Apollo 4 Blue Lite chipset, offers a smooth and effortless user experience. With its enhanced 190mAh battery, it provides up to 16 days of regular usage on a single charge, and its new fast-charging capability reduces the charging time to just one hour.
