Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, is not new to the smart band market. However, its sub-brand, Redmi is. A couple of days ago, Redmi unveiled its first smart band which is Xiaomi’s cheapest smart band. The Redmi smart band comes with a 1.08-inch large-screen colour display with 14 days of long battery life. It supports professional sports and health monitoring, calls, WeChat reminders, and Alipay offline payment. It also supports smartphone music playback and other functions.

In addition, the Redmi smart band supports 5ATM professional-grade waterproof. This means that it can be used underwater, in the rain and other aquatic environments.
In terms of sports, the Redmi band supports 5 sports modes. They include running, walking, cycling, indoor running and exercising. For health functions, this band supports 24-hour heart rate monitoring. It offers static, dynamic, and all-day heart rate monitoring.
Furthermore, this band comes with a sleep monitoring feature. It can accurately record sleep time and help record sleep quality. You can see the various data through the Xiaomi wearable APP and conduct scientific sleep analysis. The Redmi band also adds a sedentary reminder function.
As a large-screen colour display band, Redmi band will support as many as 70+ personalized dials. This includes over 20 cute and cool IP dials. With this band, you can complete an Alipay offline payment without relying on your smartphone.
