After the success of the Mi Band 4, Xiaomi has made another exceptional device again. Mi Smart Band 5 is truly a steal for its price and what it offers. Its core fitness tracking and sports tracking features are well delivered. The company has also made some improvements to the color displays. The major disappointment is that the global edition doesn’t come with voice assistant support, NFC, and some new watch faces. These are only available for Chinese consumers. If you don’t mind not having these features, it is a fitness tracker that doesn’t harm your bank balance. Continue reading our review to find out more about this device, from Mi Smart Band 5 price, release date to specs.

Mi Smart Band 5 Price & Release Date

Xiaomi launched the Mi Smart Band 5 on July 16, 2020. Mi smart Band 5 price in India is Rs 2,499, which is truly affordable. You can also buy the Chinese version, then install the Mi Fit application. After you update the firmware of the band and sync it, you can change the language to English.

Mi Smart Band 5 Design

At first gland, the device doesn’t look that different from its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi Band 4. It still has a similar tracker module that comes with a TPU plastic strap in different colors. Meanwhile, the Chinese version has eight different colors for the strap.

In terms of design, it is a bit plain and less stylish, compared to trackers from Fitbit. But it feels really well-built. And for a tracker at this price point, it doesn’t feel cheap like some trackers.

The display is actually the tracker’s strong point. The Mi Smart Band 5 has a 1.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 126 x 294. It is bigger than that of the Mi Band 4. The brightness has also been upgraded to 450 nits. As a result, you have a display that takes this tracker above the race.

Compared to other cheap fitness trackers of Samsung or Fitbit, the screen of the Mi Smart Band 5 is colorful, bright, responsive, and easy to view under direct sunlight.

It is great that the device has an extra screen real estate. This means that it can display more information at once. Xiaomi has also increased its icons’ size. You will have no problem glancing at your tracker for information.

There is a capacitive button below the touchscreen display. You will use this to wake the display up. The heart rate monitor is around the back of the tracker.

With the Mi Smart Band 5, Xiaomi has changed the way the device is charged. Before this, you needed to take the tacker module out from the strap, and charge it with its charging cradle. But now, the new magnetic charging cable will plug directly into the tracker’s back. You will no longer have to separate the tracker.

Like the Mi Smart Band 4, the Mi Smart Band 5 is 5ATM-rated waterproof. You can take it to the shower or even to the swimming pool.

Mi Smart Band 5 Fitness Tracking

Just like its predecessor, the Mi Smart Band 5 uses the same sensors for its fitness tracking features including gyroscope motion, accelerometer sensors, and a heart rate monitor. The device doesn’t have built-in GPS but you can still use the GPS signal of your phone to map outdoor activities.

From the main screen, you can see basic fitness-tracking stats. To see more, you just have to go to the Status menu. Here, you will find the distance covered, daily steps, idle alerts, calories burned, and seven-day step totals. The data is fairly accurate.

In the Workout screen, you can find 11 sports modes: power walking, outdoor running, cycling outdoor and indoor, treadmill running, skipping, pool swimming, yoga, elliptical, and a freestyle mode.

For core sports such as running and swimming, the tracking is quite accurate. The tracker also offers real-time heart rate data. When you reach a certain level, there are different alerts.

There is a new feature called Personal Activity Intelligence or PAI which first found on Amazfit devices. It is to get people to, instead of counting steps, focus more on heart rate, which is a positive thing.

Mi Smart Band 5 Battery Life

According to Xiaomi, the battery life of the Mi Smart Band 5 can reach 14 days, which is impressive, compared to rival trackers like Samsung and Fitbit devices. That is all the information you need about this device, from Mi Smart Band 5 price to specs.
