Xiaomi launched its first fitness tracker several months ago: I Band costs less than $ 15 and is a waterproof bracelet, monitors physical activity, and has a range of 30 days. As promised, however, at this time the Chinese company has launched the updated model, which keeps the same technical specifications and price, offering more than a heart rate monitor. Even the name does not vary much: I called Xiaomi 1S Band and is already on sale in China at a price of 99 yuan, about $ 16. It seems that the old band will remain on the list, to satisfy even less demanding users looking for a basic tracker (no sensor for heart rate) but with a slightly lower price (69 yuan, about $ 11).
Xiaomi 1S I Band
Second when released from Xiaomi, except for the heart rate monitor, there are many differences between I and I Band Band 1S: only the weight, 5.5 grams compared to 5 grams of the original, but you probably will not even notice the wrist. I Band 1s do not have a screen, but is combined with an iPhone or an Android smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0, in order to display step, distance and other parameters in the app Mobile. It can also monitor the quality of sleep and vibrates with a scheduled alarm.
E ‘can also automatically unlock the smartphone when you wear the Band I or I Band 1S with certain models (especially those that run on Android 5.0 and above or with those with Xiaomi MIUI interface 6). The Chinese company has not yet disclosed pricing and availability bracelet on other markets, including the US where Xiaomi has distributed the first band (and not smartphones) at a price of $ 15 through its official store
