Xiaomi Mi Band review
The Mi Band is 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 like 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.
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.
In case I have been successful in selling you this product and you are looking to get one, below are the links to the band that I have and the higher model Mi Band 2 too,
