At the Xiaomi 10th Anniversary Mi Fan Festival, in addition to the two Xiaomi Mi TV 4A 60-inch and Xiaomi Full-screen TV Pro 75-inch, Xiaomi also uncovered the much-anticipated and much-talked Redmi smartband.
The Redmi smartband uses a square color screen. It is 1.08-inch and offers 72 dial options. The wristband is available in four colors: black, blue, red, and brown. Generally, the design of this smartband resembles that of Huawei / Honor Bands and the recently launched Realme Band. Also, we’d like to say there are many things in common with the Fitbit Charge 3. So there is every reason to think Redmi didn’t want to make a revolutionary design. Instead, it wants to control price.
The Redmi smartband provides a 14-day battery life. The biggest design highlight is the fast-plug direct charging solution. Unlike the Xiaomi Mi Band, the wristband and main body are designed in one and cannot be separated. But you can plug it directly into the USB-A port to charge. In addition, the Redmi band also supports heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, sedentary reminder, and other functions.
Unfortunately, it lacks NFC for contactless payments, which is found on its parent company Xiaomi’s Mi Band 4.
The official price of the Redmi bracelet is 99 yuan ($14). However, the Mi Fan Festival crowdfunding price is 95 yuan ($14). The crowdfunding will be launched at Xiaomi Mall on April 9 at 10:00. This is a great chance for all those users who want to acquire a Xiaomi-related product at a low price tag.
