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.
