Acces­sories Xiao­mi have always shak­en up the mar­ket. I per­son­al­ly am a user of many prod­ucts of this com­pa­ny, and among them there is a bracelet MI band onesthere­fore, I con­fess that I had high hopes for the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion and, look­ing ahead, I will say that they did not mate­ri­al­ize.
And now I’ll try to tell you what made me so dis­ap­point­ed
mi band 2, and why, nev­er­the­less, I can rec­om­mend it for pur­chase, although not to every­one. GoJ
To begin with, for the first time in the his­to­ry of the com­pa­ny,the cap­sule has changed its form fac­torwhich is the key to all inno­va­tions. The “pill” with brains has become larg­er, a dis­play has appeared, and a touch but­ton. The only thing that has not changed is pro­tec­tion against dust and mois­ture accord­ing to the stan­dard
What I like more about the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion is design. It became more mod­ern, fash­ion­able, that light cap­sule dis­ap­peared, and the bracelet final­ly began to look like one piece.
Strap, as before, is made of mat­te polyurethane, in my case, black. The mate­r­i­al is quite prac­ti­cal in every­day life, there are no com­plaints about it.
Sits device on hand Great like its pre­de­ces­sor. Since the met­al clasp has been reduced in the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion, the bracelet has become much eas­i­er to unfas­ten. Although, if you acci­den­tal­ly catch on some­thing, the bracelet is unfas­tened, and you can eas­i­ly lose it, which did not hap­pen with its pre­de­ces­sor.
Screen. The screen is made using Aled tech­nol­o­gy to save ener­gy and space in the case. But in prac­tice, this deci­sion is very con­tro­ver­sial. The thing is that the dis­play is read­able when vis­it­ing, and there are no com­plaints in this regard, but on the street on a sun­ny day, the infor­ma­tion on the screen is almost indis­tin­guish­able.
The fea­ture of the bracelet is that it under­stands ges­tures. When you turn your hand, the clock lights up by itself, so now you can see the time with­out turn­ing on the but­ton with the sec­ond hand, but only indoors.
Myself dis­play cov­ered with some kind of incom­pre­hen­si­ble plas­tic with­out an oleo­pho­bic coat­ing and this is bad. The sit­u­a­tion is wors­ened by the fact that it is very dif­fi­cult to wipe it from dirt and dust. Yes, the plas­tic is very easy to scratch.
Very well imple­ment­ed in the bracelet pulse count. The pre­de­ces­sor con­sid­ered it quick­ly and accu­rate­ly, but the bracelet of the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion has become even faster and more accu­rate. To acti­vate the tonome­ter, you just need to touch the but­ton sev­er­al times and in a sec­ond the result will appear on the screen, and the bracelet itself will gen­tly vibrate when ready. Pre­vi­ous­ly, this could only be done via phone.
The work of oth­er sen­sors has also become much bet­ter, now the bracelet is more dif­fi­cult to deceive. If 1
s some­times he was naughty, and woke up an hour ear­li­er, then in the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion this busi­ness is com­plete­ly in order.
Periph­er­al func­tions have not changed their set. The whole thing works very quick­ly and clear­ly with­out fail­ures and glitch­es.
Auton­o­my. Despite a lot of improve­ments and an increase in bat­tery capac­i­ty, the auton­o­my of the bracelet has fall­en. Instead of twen­ty days with a con­stant con­nec­tion, now the bracelet lives only 2 weeks. Tu should not be upset and you need to remem­ber about com­pet­ing watch­es. After all, they can do about the same thing, but live much less than
mi band.So, I can’t call auton­o­my bad.
Appli­ca­tion to syn­chro­nize the bracelet and the phone has recent­ly received an update. Con­nect­ing via Blue­tooth has become much faster, but where the alarm set­tings have dis­ap­peared
In gen­er­al, every­thing has become more beau­ti­ful.
Mi Band 2 has become “bet­ter” than its pre­de­ces­sor in every­thing: it works more accu­rate­ly, has a dis­play that allows you to remove the watch from your sec­ond hand and see the pulse with­out tak­ing out your smart­phone. But not every­thing is as good as we would like. The plas­tic above the dis­play is soft, the screen is not vis­i­ble in the sun, auton­o­my has fall­en, and the price has dou­bled. There are only 3 rea­sons to buy mi band 2. 1‑You have a first-gen­er­a­tion bracelet and want a com­fort­able blood pres­sure mon­i­tor. 2‑You are tired of wear­ing both a watch and a track­er on two hands. Well, the third — you need to have all the newest and coolest. As the own­er of 1sI don’t see any good rea­son to upgrade to a sec­ond gen­er­a­tion bracelet.
