That because of the affordable price with more functions. So today, we are going to write about Xiaomi’s latest mi band 5 review that we done. We are very thankful to Banggood for giving us a review unit. Also, they give us a good discount. I will add the link later. So, you can buy from that link and save 20% off for mi band 5.

Lets take a look at our mi band 5 review.

The well-known fitness tracker from Xiaomi is now even better everything from the display to the sensors and finally the processor has been upgraded. There are many different accessories for mi band 5 in the local markets. So, I went to pick up another cover band to make it look less boring in the review.

Today we are going review the Chinese version of the Mi band 5 because the international version of mi band 5 is expected to go on sale in august in worldwide. This little thing costs only 25 us dollars, making it one of the most affordable fitness trackers to buy in 2020.

The build quality and the features that Mi band 5 offers are pretty good. This is probably one of the best fitness trackers at this price period. The charger is now magnetic, and there is no longer a need to remove the mi band from the strap to charge your mi band 5. We are very appreciative of that. This is a huge improvement over the previous generations. The manual now also shows the new style of charging your mi band 5.

It has the same great 14 days of battery life and also waterproof like the previous generation’s mi bands. Which means you can swim with it. To connect the mi band to the phone, we need to have the Xiaomi mi fit app installed. Here we can see some of the main features of mi band 5. By touching and pressing the display for 2 seconds, we can change the watch face.

Also, we can change the different modules inside the watch face. We can add shortcuts and use the mi band as a remote control for taking pictures from your phone. Because this is a Chinese version of mi band 5, the first thing we must do is change the language interface to English from our mi fit app.

The main display of the Mi band 5 is slightly larger than that of the mi band 4. The screen now has smaller bezels and a larger area to display more information. Unfortunately, the mi band 5 supports only heart rate monitoring the blood oxygen level measuring feature is not present.

However, the stress measuring function, which was Romart, is now available other features include breeding exercises events reminder and weather. The mi band 5 also gets several new sports mods 11 to be precise compared to the mi band 4 offered a total of 6 sports mods.

We also have a stopwatch timer and find my device, which sounds good to me. Mi Band 5, we can also control the display off, and when we are talking about the brightness of the mi band 5, It has 5 levels of brightness. When it comes to the watch faces, the mi band has a lot to offer. You can choose from animated watch faces, fitness-oriented business, fashion, and many more. Installing them is pretty simple. You just tap on the watch face you like and then tap again on the sink watch face.

The Mi fit app is very well made. It has a lot of useful features and options. You can control the notifications incoming calls, alarms and you can set your shortcuts also there is a feature find band, but because the mi band doesn’t have a speaker, it will only vibrate, and it isn’t easy to hear it if it’s from far away.

Look how awesome electric Green Strap on xiaomi mi band 5.

Now let’s replace the strap of the mi band; you have to know that if you have an old strap from me band 4 they won’t fit. As now, there is a change in how the strap is attached to the mi band 5. This also means that if you are buying a new strap for mi band 5 you have to be sure that they are made for this version of the mi band. I think this electric green is a much better fit for the summer.

The display of the Mi band 5 is pretty bright. Let’s see how it looks on bright daylight.

Now let’s try the new magnetic charger. I found the new design very convenient. I definitely didn’t like removing the strap each time I want to charge the mi band. Two hours of charging will give you two weeks of use, which is not bad for such a small fitness tracker. Now it comes the time for the 25 us dollars question is it worth it to upgrade over the mi band 4 or to buy mi band 5 for your first fitness tracker.

My answer is yes, go for it, because with a bigger and brighter display, two weeks of use now with a magnetic charger and a lot of useful features. The mi fit app is also very well made and managed and last, but not least the price, which is quite good for such a well-made device.
