Xiao­mi can­not be called spe­cial­ists in any one branch of the econ­o­my. But here’s what they are def­i­nite­ly experts in — it’s in the abil­i­ty to make desired prod­ucts that, after test­ing, you don’t want to tear away from your­self.

Today I want to tell you about a gad­get that I have not part­ed with for a whole month, and most like­ly it will stay with me for a long time — Xiao­mi Mi Band 1s.

Like many oth­er acces­sories from Xiao­mithe bracelet has an extreme­ly min­i­mal­is­tic design.Mod­ule with elec­tron­ics is sim­i­lar to sim­ple mi band, and the only dif­fer­ence between them is the eye of the heart rate sen­sor, which appeared in 1 for the first time. The pre­vi­ous ver­sion of this sen­sor is deprived. The polyurethane strap has not changed either. In gen­er­al, the design, as always, is on top, every­thing is very styl­ish, and I can say that Xiao­mi in terms of design, keeps pace with the times.

Build qual­i­ty the cap­sule itself, like the lithi­um of the strap, is impec­ca­ble, the mos­qui­to will def­i­nite­ly not under­mine the noseJ.Because this acces­so­ry is water­proof and dust­proof and there should be no slots or holes in the assem­bly.
Look­ing at the cap­sule itself, I am sur­prised, because the Chi­nese man­aged to fit a bunch of sen­sors, LEDs, a bat­tery into this lit­tle one, and now opti­cal heart rate mon­i­tor. By the way, I can call it the only con­ve­nient heart rate sen­sor that I have ever used. It does not go astray, does not lose you, does not claim that you are hold­ing some­thing wrong and some­thing is not right and works much faster than that some­thing sim­i­lar on smart­phones. This fea­ture is very use­ful for ath­letes who need to mea­sure their pulse after train­ing. Mea­sure­ments take place with min­i­mal delay. Spe­cial­ized blood pres­sure mon­i­tors give more accu­rate results, but they are also more expen­sive.
The only ele­ment of noti­fi­ca­tion of the own­er about some­thing is a sys­tem of three LEDs, which are hid­den behind per­fo­ra­tions on an alu­minum plate. When you con­nect to the track­er, or reach the tar­get, they will flash, as well as the lights indi­cate the lev­el of charge, when the bat­tery is full.
In gen­er­al, the com­fort of wear­ing and inter­ac­tion between the bracelet and the per­son is at a high lev­el. The man­u­fac­tur­er man­aged to make the gad­get as sim­ple and reli­able as pos­si­ble.
There are no touch but­tons.
If you need to give the bracelet a sig­nal, this is done by tap­ping on the case. In this way, you can turn off the alarm or con­firm the con­nec­tion to the smart­phone.
The main func­tion­al­i­ty of the bracelet is imple­ment­ed through pro­pri­etary appli­ca­tion Mi fit.Here you can set up work, set goals, view activ­i­ty and sta­tis­tics.
Anoth­er bracelet knows how to noti­fy host for incom­ing calls and appli­ca­tion noti­fi­ca­tions. The bracelet trans­mits all noti­fi­ca­tions through vibra­tion, the motor is installed here is good, you def­i­nite­ly won’t be able to miss a call or a let­ter.
Basic func­tions. Main task Mi Band pulse is to track activ­i­ty in all its man­i­fes­ta­tions.
Pedome­ter. If you real­ly believe in the high accu­ra­cy of the default pedome­ter, then don’t. The bracelet is lying here. Every day I take thou­sands of steps, run­ning around the house, or mov­ing from home to work, although the bracelet says that I have not even tak­en a dozen steps. If you are engaged in sports walk­ing or run­ning, such errors will not spoil your sta­tis­tics. While run­ning, count­ing the dis­tance and num­ber of steps is much more accu­rate, since hand move­ments are already per­ceived more clear­ly than dur­ing every­day activ­i­ty.
Anoth­er bracelet can track dream. The main mean­ing of this is a smart alarm clock. The trick is that the elec­tron­ics in the cap­sule rec­og­nizes what phase of sleep you are in and will wake you up as close as pos­si­ble to the time set in the set­tings (usu­al­ly 5–15 min­utes). This hap­pens only dur­ing a light sleep. As a result, you can wake up eas­i­er and feel more alert through­out the day. So, this fea­ture is real­ly very use­ful, and it real­ly works.
Auton­o­my. If the bracelet works as a fit­ness track­er for most of the day and con­nects to the phone a cou­ple of times to check the results, then it is dis­charged by 2–3 per­cent per day. With a con­stant con­nec­tion and use of the noti­fi­ca­tion func­tion., Then ‑5 ‑6 per­cent. Even in this sce­nario, the cap­sule can be charged once every 20 days.
Con­clu­sion. Xiao­mi Mi Band 1s is a great exam­ple of what wear­able elec­tron­ics should look like. With its dimen­sions, this device allows its own­er to mon­i­tor activ­i­ty, mea­sure the pulse, wake up eas­i­ly, and not miss impor­tant calls and noti­fi­ca­tions. Yes, and you need to charge once every 20 days.
Con­sid­er­ing the price, this is a great gift option and a great gad­get for keep­ing track of your health.
