Xiaomi’s Mi Band 2 is the perfect step and sleep counter for beginners

Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi may be best known for smartphones such as the innovative Mi Mix, but it also makes a wide variety of other products, from televisions to drones. Sadly, the majority aren’t sold outside Asia, and many aren’t compatible with U.S. networks or systems. One Xiaomi product you can easily buy without such concerns is the Xiaomi Mi Band 2. It’s a fitness tracker with a heart rate sensor and a super-bright OLED screen, and a sequel to the simple, yet cheap original Mi Band. Extra features usually means an increase in price — but that’s not Xiaomi’s style at all.

There’s no shortage of fitness trackers, and although the Mi Band 2 is very affordable, has the wonderful simplicity of the original been lost — and does it still represent the value it once did?

Design and comfort

The Mi Band 2 looks very similar to the original Mi Band. There’s a central core module that pops into a slim, silicone strap, allowing you to swap it out for straps in different colors. Once the core is in place, it’s not going anywhere at all, and is more securely fastened in than the original Mi Band had been (its core would sometimes pop out unexpectedly). Although soft, the silicone isn’t floppy and is secured with a pop stud and small loop. The strap is also super secure, with almost zero chance of it coming loose or falling off.

The Mi Band 2 is easy to put on with one hand, and it’s considerably more compact than most modern Fitbit trackers, such as the Fitbit Blaze. Because of this it’s suitable for all wrist sizes, and doesn’t look out of place on the thin-wristed.

You can set a daily step count target and an ideal weight you’d like to achieve, and in a recent app update, lets you select one of two running profiles — indoor on a treadmill, or outdoor. This adds in continuous heart-rate monitoring during your workout, a feature missing from the earlier version of the app. Select either profile, and it’ll deliver zone alerts when you reach a set heart rate, and a pace alert for running outside. It’s also possible to use the heart rate monitor automatically during the night to gather more data. Both these features will obviously affect battery life. There is an alarm, but it’s not Smart enough to wake you during a light-sleep phase, and the Band will alert you of incoming calls, system notifications, or if you’ve been sitting still for too long.

Tap the “Play” button at the bottom of the screen, then the Behavior Tagging menu, to find an extensive list of exercise and activity programs, ranging from ping-pong and sit-ups, to brushing your teeth and driving. These are trackers, monitoring movement and heart rate continuously, to help build a picture of your day. We question their usefulness, because anything you do doesn’t show up in historical graphs, and unless it’s walking or running, doesn’t count towards your daily goals.

The app is attractive, minimalistic, and very logically laid out. It’s easy to use, and the pertinent information, such as step count, is immediately obvious when you launch it. However, the Mi app is entirely devoid of advice, encouragement, or feedback on your wellbeing, based on the data it collects. This is unfortunate, as it’s how value is measured in the overcrowded world of fitness trackers. After all, there’s a good chance you’re wearing one because you want to get fitter, lose weight, or get better sleep. Some trackers want to help you reach your goal, and offer guidance and motivation. With the Mi Band 2, you’re on your own.

Accuracy and battery

After an early firmware problem that resulted in an inaccurate step count, the Mi Band 2 has been faultless in reliability and accuracy. Its step count is in line with competitors, with the difference between them maxing at 100 steps. The heart rate sensor had always agreed with the Apple Watch, with the pair usually coming within a couple of beats-per-minute of each other.

One of the best things about the original Mi Band was its long battery life, and although there is more technology inside the Mi Band 2, the battery is rated for 20 days without a recharge. In reality, I got to 20 days use with the Mi Band 2 and the battery still had 49 percent energy remaining, which is superb. The core module must be removed from the strap and fitted into a proprietary charger to top up the battery. It’s very reliable too. After not charging it for a month, then bringing it back into service, it accepted the charge and lasted for at least another month before running out of power.

Price, warranty, and where to buy

Xiaomi still doesn’t sell the Mi Band 2 through its own online store, but you can get one from China through an importer. We originally got ours through GearBest.com, a well-known online importer of Chinese electronics, where it’s currently priced at only 22 with free shipping. Our model from GearBest arrived by courier a few days after ordering, and had been extremely well packaged.

Worried about what happens if the Band goes wrong? GearBest provides a one-year warranty and free repair service, provided the product hasn’t been damaged through misuse, along with a 45-day money back guarantee. Because the Mi Band 2 comes from China, there are return shipping charges to consider in this process, and although some are covered, situations vary, so do bear it in mind.

Our take

The Mi Band 2 costs a fraction of most big-name fitness trackers, yet matches them on features and design, making it ideal for the regular gym goer.

Is there a better alternative?

Because it costs less than 25, the Mi Band 2 has few challengers that can meet it head-on. The Misfit Flash costs about the same, but doesn’t have a heart-rate monitor or a screen. The Moov Now costs nearly three times as much, and also can’t match the Mi Band 2 on features. However, the Moov Now does have a great app, with plenty of different exercise options, which is worth the extra money if you’ve got it.

If you have a bigger budget available, and want a more comprehensive app and fitness experience, while retaining a cool design and beautiful screen, we love the Samsung Gear Fit 2.

How long will it last?

The Mi Band 2 is water resistant, the core module stays well protected inside the silicone Band, and even after several months of wearing it, the entire product shows few signs of wear. The battery is also still going strong after this amount of time, providing around a month’s worth of use before needing a charge. If the silicone Band does break, or you fancy a color change, there are many cheap alternatives available online.

Should you buy it?

Yes. It’s light, durable, inconspicuous, easy-to-use, has a beautiful bright screen, and at less than 25 it’s astonishing value for a heart-rate monitor-equipped Band. However, we want value both in terms of price and from the feedback and guidance we get in exchange for wearing the Band all day long. Xiaomi has updated the Mi Band 2’s app with more workout options, making it more useful than ever; but it lacks motivational guidance, or extensive individual exercise tracking.

Whether this bothers you depends on your level of commitment to exercise. If you want to know only how far you walked, how much you slept, and to check your heart rate on a run, the Mi Band 2 is an excellent choice. However, if you’re a fitness fanatic, and want to track specific exercises, get feedback on your progress, and encouragement to keep going, then the Mi Band 2 will disappoint. This is a common problem with fitness trackers though, and not unique to the Mi Band 2 or Xiaomi’s app.

Update: We’ve revisited the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 to see if it still represents the superb value for money that it did on its release, almost a year ago. Added in new Our Take sections. By Andy Boxall on May 18.

Editors’ Recommendations

Andy is a Senior Writer at Digital Trends, where he concentrates on mobile technology, a subject he has written about for…

The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro is new in name only. The newly announced smartphone from Chinese brand Xiaomi is a renamed version of the Redmi K20 Pro, which was initially launched at the end of May. It follows the Xiaomi Mi 9T, which was itself a renamed version of the Redmi K20, also revealed alongside the K20 Pro in May. The Redmi-branded phones are already available in China, while the Mi 9T models are destined for Europe and other countries.

While the rebranding makes sense — the Redmi name is not well known outside China — it’s unfortunate Xiaomi decided to stagger the release. Giving people the choice of both phones at the same time would have been fairer. Xiaomi’s annoying practices aside, and based on how good the Mi 9T was during our time with it, the higher-specification Mi 9T Pro will be even more desirable.

The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 is one of the best value sport-tech products available, and one of the only fitness bands you should consider buying. Why? I question whether the fitness tracking Band still has its place in the world of wearables at all, since many phones will count steps, and all smartwatches do that and plenty more. If you really want one, why splash out on anything more than a basic version, when spending more will bring you closer to the cost of a decent smartwatch?

Xiaomi’s latest fitness Band is 35 British pounds, or about 40 if you import one to the U.S., where it’s not officially available. The Fitbit Inspire HR and the Samsung Galaxy Fit both cost 100, yet have the same level of functionality and the same general design. Let’s talk about that first, as design is perhaps a word that doesn’t really Apple to the Mi Smart Band 4 or its competitors. Design Like almost every fitness Band, the Mi Smart Band 4 has a main module wrapped up on a silicone Band that’s held on your wrist using a pin-and-hole fastener. The style isn’t too attractive, and is best hidden away from sight under a sleeve, unlike a watch. It’s slim and lightweight, at only 22 grams. I’ve worn this one for several weeks, during the day and night, often alongside a watch and I didn’t really notice it was there. The module pops out of the Band, so you can change it for one in a different color, or to charge it when the battery runs out.

The Xiaomi Mi 9T is a great little phone, and if it’s sold where you can buy one, it should go right alongside the Google Pixel 3a on your shopping list, because it’s excellent value. But it’s also confusing.

Why? Xiaomi enjoys going out of its way to make its range as broad and complicated as possible, and the Mi 9T you see here is no different. It’s only known as the Mi 9T in some markets.-elsewhere it’s known as the Redmi K20.- and it’s an entry into the growing Mi 9 range. The range includes the regular Mi 9 and the Mi 9 SE, which also shares similarities with the Mi 9T. The Redmi K20 is joined by a K20 Pro too, but it has better internals than the 9T. That’s a lot of phones, a lot of names, and a lot of confusion.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review

One of the most popular wearables got a massive upgrade this year with the new Xiaomi Mi Band 2. The first Mi Band was a breakthrough because of its battery life, compact size, and bargain price. Then the Mi Band Pulse added a heart-rate sensor, but took the RGB notification LEDs.

And now. with the Mi Band 2, Xiaomi fans all around the world are finally getting the display they wished for.

Xiaomi’s Mi Band 2 keeps the iconic design, but replaces the three LED lights with a 0.42″ OLED display. There is also a touch-sensitive key below the tiny screen, which helps you switch between the different notification panes.

Other notable upgrades are the bigger battery (70mAh), improved HR sensor, better motion tracking sensor, and enhanced Bluetooth connectivity. The strap also got a refreshed design.

Unboxing

The small retail box of the new Mi Band 2 hides no surprises. the new Mi Band 2 is inside, a soft strap, and a small USB cable for charging.

Unboxing the Mi Band 2

Design

The Mi Band 2 is slightly bigger and thicker than its predecessors, though Xiaomi managed to keep its elegant style rather intact. The entire front is covered with a scratch and fingerprint resistant glass, while the touch-sensitive key is made of anodized 0.05mm metal piece.

Naturally, the bottom of the Mi Band 2 has the new optical HR sensor, while the charging pins are at one of the sides.

Xiaomi’s Mi Band 2 is dust and water proof (IP67), so you won’t have to worry about anything. And if smudged, you can easily wash it under tap water.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2

The new strap is softer and more pleasant for the skin. It features an enhanced design in order to keep the Mi Band 2 firmly inside. Xiaomi promises it won’t accidentally pop up from the strap, and I can confirm this never occurred over the month I used the Band.

The display

The small 0.42″ OLED display is of the monochrome variety. It can display the time, step count, total distance, burnt calories, heart rate, battery percentage, and icons for incoming notifications (messages, email, calls, among others).

The screen is bright enough and is visible even under direct sunlight. And it blends well underneath the back glass on the Band’s front.

The Mi Band 2 screen

Due to the small pixel count the screen can only display notification icons such as message or email icon, and not text, but that still counts for something. The older bands did this with different LED colors or number of vibrations.

Features

As I already mentioned, the display of the new Mi Band 2 is definitely the highlight new feature. Thanks to the small thingy, you can now see the time by lifting your wrist or tapping the key. Tapping repeatedly will start cycling between the panes you’ve enabled from the Mi Fit app. Time, Steps, Distance, Calories, Heart rate, Remaining battery.

Configuring the Mi Band 2

You can measure your heart rate by cycling to the appropriate pane, or, if disabled, you can use the Mi Fit app to fire the heart rate sensor.

The Band tracks your step count quite well and sleep. Its software automatically calculates distance and burnt calories and those are transferred to the Mi Fit app upon sync. You can set a step goal if you like.

Steps Steps history the profile screen Sleep Sleep history

You can enable automatic heart-rate measurements during your sleep and they will provide much more accurate information, but this will have a rather huge impact on the battery life.

xiaomi, band, review, redmi

You can also set up idle alerts and avoid long non-activity intervals. There is also a neat DND mode which I used to avoid distractions at night.

Heart rate history Measuring HR Idle alert DND mode Allowing the Health app to use Band data

All health data collected by the Mi Band 2. heart rate measurements, steps, distance, calories, sleep info and activity. can be used by other apps such as Apple’s Health app.

Finally, the Mi Band 2 supports alarms which you can set from the Mi Fit app.

Notifications

Notifications may have kicked off as a bonus feature with the first Mi Band, but they have become an invaluable feature in the latest wearable devices. Xiaomi knew that, especially when it angered a lot of people by ditching the RGB LEDs and opting for white-only lights in the later batches of the first Mi Band and the Mi Band 1s after it.

Now with the integrated display, there is a lot more room for showing notifications. Indeed, the screen size is limited and it can’t display text, but Xiaomi still found a way to show notifications in a meaningful way.

First. incoming calls. The Mi Band 2 can vibrate when you have an incoming call. You can set up a notification delay between 3s and 30s. Upon a call (and after the delay) the Band starts vibrating and the screen will show an earphone icon.

App notifications are available as well. Currently the Mi Band 2 supports vibrating and displaying an icon on its screen for Mi Fit, Mi Talk, WeChat Snapchat, and Whatsapp.

Managing app notifications

SMS, Email, and Goal notifications are also available, from the Band Notifications menu. They do the same. initiate a short vibration and an icon pop-up.

Finally, you can set the Band to notify you about achieved goals such as daily step target reached.

Mi Fit app and Smart Unlock

The Mi Fit app is available on Android and iOS. There is one major feature unavailable on Apple’s devices and that’s the Smart Unlock.

If your smartphone runs on MIUI 5.6 or later, or Android 5.0 or later, you can use the Smart Unlock feature. Once you configure it from the Mi Fit app, your phone won’t require PIN of fingerprint to unlock when the Mi Band 2 is in close proximity.

The Mi Fit app is your place for tracking your activity. sleep, step count, heart-rate data. Here you can check your weekly and monthly progress, share achievements with Mi your friends or social networks, as well as set new goals.

Mi Fit app steps sleep heart rate

The Mi Fit app also supports weight tracking via the Mi Scale, or manual input.

Battery life

My Xiaomi Mi Band 2 lasted exactly 30 days on a single charge. It had the accurate sleep tracking via heart rate monitoring turned off to achieve this score. All other trackers and display options were on, including the wrist gesture for checking the time.

The 30-day battery achievement included per day: about 50 time checks, 8-10 heart rate checks, 5 cycles through all the panes, and two synchronizations with the Mi Fit app.

36% left after 20 days of use

I am yet to test how the Mi Band 2 will do with accurate sleep tracking, but it should halve the battery life.

Anyway, I am nothing short of impressed by the Mi Band 2 battery life. One charge per month is absolute lovely and I applaud Xiaomi for the good job they did with optimizing the Mi Band 2.

Final thoughts

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is far from a perfect fitness tracker. There are a lot better wearables out there, with better designed software and tracking procedures. The Mi Band 2 can’t give you advice during your training sessions, can’t record them accurately because it doesn’t know if you are running or lifting.

But for about 25 nobody should expect that. If step count, heart-rate and sleep tracking are all the fitness data you need, and you like the notification handling of the Mi Band 2, then you should get one. There are lots of color options and with a 30-day battery life for 25. it’s a bargain.

Special thanks to HonorBuy.com for providing the review unit.

Xiaomi Redmi Smart Band 2, análisis: una pulsera de actividad que da más de lo que cuesta

Xiaomi ha aplicado a su catálogo de pulseras de actividad la misma filosofía que en los smartphones: diversificar al máximo. Las originales Mi Band que tanto han hecho por la cuantificación de actividad diaria gracias a su buen funcionamiento y precio irrisorio, se fueron diversificando en las Redmi Band y las Smart Band Pro. Para los consumidores, un caos similar al de los smartphones de gama de entrada y media de la compañía.

La Redmi Smart Band 2 llega al mercado para convertirse en una “grandes éxitos” gracias a los argumentos de siempre (precio, funcionamiento, batería …) y la diferenciación en el diseño y pantalla respecto a su competidora de casa: la Mi Smart Band 7.

Ficha técnica de la Redmi Smart Band 2

172 x 320 píxeles, 247 ppp

Vidrio templado 2.5D con revestimiento antihuellas

Resistencia al agua de 5 ATM

Redmi Smart Band 2. Pulsera de Actividad de 1.47″, Cuerpo Ligero y Ultrafino de 9.99 mm, 30 Modos Deportivos, SpO2, 5ATM, batería de hasta 14 días, Negro

Un paso adelante en diseño

Siguiendo la estela de la primera generación configurada alrededor de la denominación Smart Band Pro, la Redmi Smart Band 2 acoge de manera satisfactoria un cambio de diseño que la hace más práctica al adoptar la pantalla un formato a medio camino entre el diseño puramente ovalado y el rectangular.

El resultado es muy satisfactorio en tanto que con la misma diagonal, 1.47 pulgadas, hay más aprovechamiento efectivo del panel. Y además le otorga a esta pulsera asequible un rol más imponente y cercano al smartwatch.

Xiaomi ofrece su músculo, sensación de marca y relación calidad/precio para poder imponerse a los clónicos por doquier que salen de cualquier producto de electrónica hoy en día

De acabado y calidad de construcción no hay sorpresas aquí. Xiaomi tiene claro que el precio es esencial para el mercado de consumo pero sin descuidar una calidad y apariencia que le permite distanciarse de la competencia clónica.

La Redmi Smart Band 2 es muy ligera, no llega a 15 gramos sin correa, y la sensación es la de no llevar nada. Ofrece también un grosor contenido para que no sea una incomodidad cuando la llevamos bajo la ropa.

El módulo central, que es prácticamente decir la pantalla, se extrae de la correa con facilidad para poder jugar con diferentes colores de correa compatibles (hay seis tonos oficiales). La que viene por defecto, fabricada en TPU (poliuretano termoplástico), es de buena calidad, suficientemente flexible aunque el cierre de puntos requiere cierta presión que incomoda algo al principio.

La pulsera Redmi Smart Band 2 no dispone de ningún botón físico. Todo se controla con gestos sobre la pantalla de manera bastante eficiente

En el diseño de esta Redmi Smart Band 2 no hay botones físicos. Todo se controla vía gestos sobre la pantalla y aquí encontramos una de las grandes noticias de esta pulsera: la sensibilidad de la pantalla y el control por gestos es rápido, cómodo y preciso.

Para realizar la carga no es necesario retirar el módulo de la correa, pero de nuevo tenemos un cargador propietario, algo que no me convence nada pese a la buena autonomía que pueda tener la pulsera. Un USB-C con el que prácticamente poder cargar en cualquier lugar sin tener que acordarnos de llevarnos el cable propietario sería lo ideal.

Esta Redmi Smart Band 2 tiene resistencia al agua de 5 ATM y bluetooth 5.1 como conectividad principal.

Pantalla ideal para una pulsera de actividad

El precio más asequible de esta Redmi Smart Band 2 ya nos da una pista de que ha habido algún recorte en la ficha técnica. En este caso lo tenemos en la pantalla. Aquí no hay panel AMOLED sino un TFT de 1.47 pulgadas con resolución de 172×320 píxeles (247 ppp) y brillo máximo de 450 nits.

Especialmente en interiores, la pantalla se ve perfectamente y cumple sin problemas tanto en brillo como en densidad, siempre pensando en que estamos hablando de una pulsera cuantificadora y no un smartwatch al uso. Y lógicamente, en exteriores en especial, la visualización y experiencia queda por detrás de la que nos ofrece un panel de tipo AMOLED.

La rebaja de precio se lleva por delante la tecnología AMOLED de la pantalla pero la visualización es muy buena

El perfil más bien bajo de esta pulsera también reduce sus funcionalidades y por ejemplo echamos de menos el sensor automático de brillo, el cual debemos regular de manera manual.

La pantalla está fabricada con vidrio templado con revestimiento antihuellas muy efectivo, y tiene una curvatura de 2.5D. Como hemos indicado, todo el control del dispositivo pasa por desplazarnos por su parte superior, inferior o deslizar de un lado a otro.

A la interfaz y las opciones se acostumbra uno rápido. La pantalla se activa bien por gestos de la muñeca, por notificaciones o simplemente tocándola y luego ya podemos acceder a las notificaciones deslizando desde la parte superior de la pantalla, al menú principal desde la parte inferior, y a algunas aplicaciones como tiempo o control de la reproducción de música desde los laterales, donde van apareciendo los widgets de información que podemos seleccionar vía app.

Más y mejor información en la muñeca

La mayor área de visualización de esta nueva Redmi Smart Band 2 nos permite un acceso más cómodo a la información sobre nuestra actividad y salud. Es el objetivo principal de este tipo de pulseras, no ser un smartwatch. En este aspecto no hay muchas opciones ni muy completas. Sí que puedes conocer avisos por mensajes, llamadas, controlar la reproducción multimedia pero poco más.

El fuerte de este tipo de dispositivos, donde las Band de Xiaomi son las reinas, es que permiten monitorizar muchos parámetros de actividad y salud sin que tengamos que preocuparnos por cargar la batería cada pocos días o sentir que llevamos algo intrusivo en la muñeca.

No hace falta gastarse mucho dinero para tener una pulsera de actividad cómoda, con buena pantalla y que registre la mayoría de datos de salud y ejercicio que interesa a la población en general

La Redmi Smart Band 2 mide pasos, distancia, calorías, minutos de actividad, frecuencia cardíaca, SpO₂ e incluso el nivel de estrés, aunque estos dos parámetros, en una pulsera de este tipo, no pasan de ser datos anecdóticos y que debemos de tomar como tal. También lleva un seguimiento del sueño, todo ello de manera muy visual, cómoda y con rápido acceso a gráficas e historial usando la aplicación Mi Fitness, que es la base la sincronización y registro de información de esta nueva pulsera.

También hay un cierto toque de competición por la gamificación en forma de reto contra tus contactos que se incluye en la app.

Desde la aplicación accedemos también a la configuración de la pulsera medidora de actividad. Podemos cambiar la esfera entre las que vienen por defecto o las que tenemos disponibles online (en total más de 100 opciones diferentes) pero no modificar qué información nos proporciona cada una de ellas.

También tenemos acceso a la activación o no de los parámetros que queremos registrar y cómo hacerlo, establecer alarmas, mostrar o no determinados widgets con información, reorganizar cómo aparecen ciertos elementos en la pantalla o decidir qué notificaciones queremos que sean activas en la pantalla de la Redmi Smart Band 2.

Algunas de las opciones de configuración, como cambiar entre las esferas que tengamos en local en el reloj (solo podemos tener tres al mismo tiempo), el nivel de brillo de la pantalla o el modo No Molestar, se pueden gestionar desde el propio reloj en la sección de Ajustes. También nos sirve esta pulsera para localizar el teléfono asociado haciéndolo sonar. Esto es así siempre que el terminal esté conectado por Bluetooth con la pulsera. Por cierto, no hay aviso en la pulsera cuando esa conectividad se pierde.

Registrando el deporte que hacemos de manera básica

La Redmi Smart Band 2 no incluye GPS. En este margen de precios y tipo de pulsera era evidente. Hay que tenerlo en cuenta porque el registro de actividades deportivas, que admite más de 30 diferentes, se realiza recurriendo al GPS del teléfono. Esto nos ata directamente al smartphone pero para la mayoría de usuarios, máxime en este presupuesto, no supone problema alguno.

En las actividades que realicemos vamos a obtener datos de frecuencia cardíaca y/o distancia (basada en los pasos, no en datos del GPS). Y lo más importante: un registro de las mismas. Contamos además con una buena pantalla de información (podemos marcar objetivos de tiempo o distancia para algunas actividades y ver las zonas de trabajo según la frecuencia cardíaca). Pero no es una pulsera para registrar actividad deportiva a un nivel superior o sin el smartphone de por medio.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2. Inbetriebnahme und Erfahrung nach 2 Wochen ! (German)

Tanto para registrar parámetros del día a día como para información sobre diferentes actividades físicas, la Redmi Smart Band 2 ha demostrado una fluidez total. No hay sensación de retrasos ni fallos a nivel de software.

Autonomía equilibrada

La Redmi Smart Band 2 insiste a nivel de autonomía en uno de los puntos fuertes de la familia Band de Xiaomi: su buena autonomía. No hablamos de cifras asombrosas ni como antaño (se ha aumentado el tamaño y calidad de la pantalla y añadidos nuevos y más potentes sensores) pero se mantiene sin problema en los 8-10 días con un uso normal en el que hay registro de actividades a razón de 2-3 a la semana, notificaciones activas siempre y un brillo de pantalla alrededor del 50%.

xiaomi, band, review, redmi

En caso de que lo necesitemos, la pulsera de Xiaomi admite un modo de ahorro de batería.

Respecto a la carga, como ya hemos adelantado, es de tipo propietaria mediante dos pines magnéticos en la parte trasera. La sujeción es sencilla y muy fuerte, tanto que podemos cargarla estando colgada del cable sin problema. La carga, según nuestras mediciones, tarda poco más de una hora y media.

Redmi Smart Band 2, la opinión y nota de Xataka

Siendo justos, gran parte del éxito de las pulseras de actividad se la debemos a Xiaomi. Sus Mi Band se ven en muchísimas muñecas. Su gran autonomía y precio asequible son todavía irresistibles en un nicho de mercado muy importante.

Luego llegaron relojes avanzados con cada vez mejores precios y prestaciones, lo que provocó que las pulseras sencillas tuvieran que avanzar en diferentes aspectos. Y vaya si lo han hecho.

Modelos como la Redmi Smart Band 2, con su gran ficha técnica y precio de poco más de 30 euros, las colocan de como una opción irresistible para llevar un espía de nuestra actividad en la muñeca sin que nos demos cuenta ni tengamos que cargarla cada dos días.
