Simply Functional Design
Like every fitness band out there, the Xaiomi Mi Band is a very simple device, hardware wise. The Xiaomi Mi Band is primarily made up of two different parts: the main Mi Band core unit and the swappable rubber band.
The main unit of the Xiaomi Mi Band is made up of an aluminium alloy on the front and durable plastic on the rear of the unit. The front plate of the Mi Band is a 1mm thick aluminium allow sensor that’s manufactured through a 12-step process to give it a smooth classy texture with chamfered edges. Under the aluminium plate is a set of three LED lights that discreetly keep you notified of your messages or workouts.
The band of the Xiaomi Mi Band is made up of TPSiV, one of the world’s best thermoplastic elastomers that is also hypoallergenic, meaning it is anti-allergy and anti-microbial. It’s comfortable, durable, and very unlikely to irritate even sensitive skin – the ultimate in fitness band comfort.
The Xiaomi Mi Band is a fitness band, no more, no less. Sure it does have added functionality such as giving you very subtle and discreet notifications for your smartphone’s notifications, but it ultimately is a fitness band. Located in the main unit of the Xiaomi Mi Band is a military grade exercise sensor that has very low power consumption and yet retains great accuracy when tracking your steps and fitness patterns. The lower power consumption of the sensor lets the Mi Band go on for 30 days before needing a recharge through the provided USB dongle.
Through the app, the Mi Band is able to track your running and walking steps as well as track your sleep patterns. The app shows your results in an easy to understand graph chart, allowing you to formulate your sleep patterns and fitness sessions to suit your preferences even better. With the use of a vibration motor in tandem with the three LED lights in the band, users can also stay notified in a very discreet and private manner.
