Today is a great day for geeks because Xiaomi officially launched the Mi Band 5: the fifth generation of its best-selling series of smart bands. The new wearable comes with plenty of improvements and new features, including improved software and features thought to provide a better user experience. But in 2020 the Mi Band 5 has a lot of rivals from other smartphone manufacturers. Since smart bands are currently a very important niche of the hi-tech world, we chose two of the most valid ones for a specs comparison with the new Mi Band 5. We are referring to the Honor Band 5 and the Realme Band, both among the cheapest and most functional fitness tracker you can find out there.
Xiaomi is launching some new dual-toned straps along with the band. These new bands with the black part wrapping the fitness tracker might set off the illusion that the steps are connected to the two far ends of the body instead of being an entire removable/replaceable strap.
The Mi Band 5 also gets an improved processor for faster and more accurate tracking. Besides 11 fitness tracking modes, female users can use the fitness band to tracking their menstrual cycles. The fitness band will also offer a PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) score to help you contextualize how physical activities contribute to your fitness. For more efficient sleep tracking, the Mi Band 5 will now also report REM sleep beside deep and light sleep.
Further, the tracker also comes with an inbuilt barometer to gauge the atmospheric pressure and can also be used as a remote shutter button for taking images on the phone from a distance.
Just like the older versions, the fitness band will also support NFC payments in China.
