The mi Band 2 may not be very pretty lớn look at, and the silicone band may look cheap, but it’s a very durable piece that’s light, easy lớn clasp và comfortable to wear. It’s not only water resistant but also sweat, dust & corrosion resistant. Pretty cool! Water resistant isn’t the same as waterproof so remember you can’t swim while wearing this band. If you don’t want a đen band, that’s no problem. Originally, the band was only available in orange, green and blue; but now there are more interchangeable colored bands khổng lồ choose from that are sold separately. The wristbands are inexpensive too so you could buy one in each color and be fashionable every day!

The scratch và fingerprint resistant, monochrome, OLED display is small. Yet it’s still larger and brighter than its predecessor, and it does a nice job of showing steps, heart rate, the time, battery life, distance và burned calories; it’s all easy lớn read whether you’re in sunlight or at night. Sadly, there isn’t any touchscreen; however, there’s a handy touch-sensitive button which controls the screen. Believe it or not, this button is more desirable than having to tap once or twice on the screen. This awesome touch-sensitive button is a more dependable, faster way lớn communicate with the easy-to-use band.

2. Tracking Features

The Xiaomi mày Band 2 is a simple device that tracks activity, sleep and heart rate.

If you’re a hardcore runner, then this gadget might not be for you because there aren’t any extra features or a GPS for precise monitoring of your runs. But if you’re a person that just likes lớn run occasionally, this entry-level fitness tracker should vì the job. Compared lớn the mày Band 1, this device is more accurate when it comes to lớn counting your steps và can keep up with the accuracy of the well-known trackers, too. However, it still doesn’t have a feature that counts stair climbing; so when you climb any stairs it’s counted as only steps and, therefore, underestimates your calories burned.

The mi Band 2 has a terrific feature that most fitness trackers have nowadays: an alert khổng lồ let you know that you need to get up & move around; a pretty neat bonus of this alert is that you can select what times during the day it alerts you. This is marvellous if you’re one for sitting too long và need lớn be prompted to go for a short walk in the morning và afternoon! The device also vibrates when you’ve passed your goal for that day. It could take the gadget several seconds to lớn determine that you’ve started your activity or workout, but tracking will start automatically. How convenient! If you’re okay with a tracker that doesn’t have all the fancy whistles & bells, then you’ve found your device. Xiaomi mi still has some work to vày with the activity tracker portion but, hopefully, new elements will be inthe next upgrade.The sleep tracker automatically knows when you fall asleep và awake as well as detects deep & light sleep. It’s faithful in its monitoring, and you get a really useful view of how you normally sleep. Through the ngươi Fit ứng dụng (discussed later), you can view the number of minutes you weren’t sleeping, specific falling asleep & waking up times & the amount of light and REM sleep you got. If you can’t stand being woken up by your loudly buzzing alarm clock, the ngươi Band 2 has a vibrating alarm that will gently wake you up each morning—or after a much-needed nap.On the bottom of the band, you’ll find the built-in optical heart rate monitor which has been enhanced from its sibling. While you may discover that when it tracks your resting heart rate, the beats per minute are a bit off, it does a pretty decent job of tracking your heart rate while hiking, sprinting or slowly jogging. You’ll also be happy to lớn see that you can use automatic heart rate tracking while you’re sleeping & get more precise details, but keep in mind that doing this will really drain your battery.

3. Ngươi Fit App

Xiaomi created a new interface for their tiện ích upgrade. When the mày Fit phầm mềm was first released, it had performance and syncing problems; but those have been fixed, & now the tiện ích connects, performs và updates smoothly. Mày Fit also has a very clear layout, is attractive and simple lớn use.

When you xuất hiện the app, you’ll notice a dashboard that displays today’s activity, the most up-to-date heart rate measurement, your night’s sleep và your most recent series of goals you achieved. In each of these categories, you can view graphs by day, week and month. Under each graph’s timeline, you’ll find that it’s broken down into sleep, activity và walk. For activity & walk you can survey distance, steps, burned calories & time. However, unlike other fitness apps, there isn’t any way of grouping or editing this data. We think it’s awesome that the ứng dụng allows you lớn set a weight goal as well as a daily step goal.

Go into the “Behavior Tagging” thực đơn by tapping “Play” in the app, & you’ll discover a broad các mục of activity & workout programs; they range from driving and brushing teeth lớn sit-ups và table tennis. To provide a description of your day, each one will constantly track your heart rate and movement. However, not everything you vì chưng is displayed in these graphs, & if you’re not running or walking, it won’t be counted toward your daily goal. So we’re not entirely sure how useful things like brushing your teeth or making your bed really are.

There’s a neat feature that didn’t exist in the previous version of mày Fit. There are two profiles for running lớn choose from outdoor và treadmill (indoor), both with constant heart rate tracking. Each profile will give you a zone alert for achieving a certain heart rate and, if you’re running outdoors, there’s also a zone alert for achieving a certain pace. How cool is that?

While there isn’t any feedback, encouragement or advice from the app, you can get all of these by sharing your progress on social media or social fitness platforms.

4. A Few Extras

Although this isn’t a smartwatch that’ll give you tons of notifications, the mi Band 2 will vibrate—most of the time—to inform you when you have a phone gọi or text. The screen will even show an icon if you receive notifications from mày Talk, Facebook, WhatsApp, WeChat, ngươi Fit, Snapchat, and Twitter.

Now that’s amazing!You’ll find with this tracker that the battery life is outstanding. It lasts 20 days before needing a charge. Wow!

Sure, the Xiaomi ngươi Band 2 isn’t without its flaws—but what fitness tracker is? Maybe it lacks other features that the big-name trackers have. But when you figure that the mi Band 2 is just as accurate as those big names for a lot less price, how could the average person who uses a gym go wrong?
