The Mi Band is one of the best-selling products by Xiaomi around the world. As every year, with this launch thousands of users are interested in buying the new version to upgrade or to enjoy the experience of using an electronic bracelet for the first time.
The success of this bracelet is understandable since it has a price of around US$ 30/40. Also, every year, the brand implements new functions that make this product more attractive. Compared with smartwatches, this bracelet may fall a bit short with many of the features that these other devices present, but its low price invites the user to renew it year after year.
In this review, we will see the new functions of the Mi Band 5 version, and where to buy it with the international operative system at the best price.
Xiaomi Mi Band 5
The first thing we can think of when we see the Mi Band 5 is that it has not changed much compared to the Mi Band 4. It is an understandable error since its external appearance follows a continuous line, but its benefits have improved in everything that users asked for.
The dimensions of the bracelet are 46.95 millimeters long by 18.15 millimeters wide, with a thickness of 12.45 millimeters. This is without counting on the adjustable silicone strap, which is designed for wrists with a diameter between 15.5 to 21.9 centimeters.
Made of plastic material, its weight is 11.9 grams without counting the bracelet. With this compact design, it has a water resistance of 5 ATM (or what we know as 5 atmospheres) and is equivalent to being able to withstand depths of up to 50 meters.
Its 1.1-inch AMOLED color screen has a resolution of 126 by 294 pixels and a maximum brightness of 450 nits that will allow us to see the screen perfectly even in broad daylight. And compared to the Mi Band 4, here we have a slightly larger screen that works with the same colors but has better backlighting, as we mentioned.
