It looks like Xiaomi has made an impressive work designing its latest Mi Band 2 and this shows, every time I look at my wrist 😉 However it’s always good when you get an international award for the work you have done, and this time the designing team of this wearable should be proud.
According to the official Mi Band 2 Weibo account, the Mi Band 2 is among the winners of the 2017 Red Dot Design award for its innovative design. In case some of you don’t know, the Red Dot Design Award is an international product design and communication design prize awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.
