Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 features a 1.1-inch AMOLED display which is 20% larger than the previous generation Mi Band 4. The fitness trackers come preloaded with more than 65 watch faces and can be paired with up six different coloured straps. The screen also has a one-touch button which can be used to wake up the screen, otherwise, it serves as the back button.

The Mi Smart Band 5 comes with a magnetic charging dock so users will no longer have to take out the tracker from the rubber straps to charge it up every time. The fitness tracker claims to provide 14-day battery life and can be recharged from 0-100% in under 2 hours. In battery saving mode, the tracker can last for upto 20 days on a single charge.

It features 11 professional sports modes including outdoor running, treadmill, cycling, walking, freestyle, pool swimming, elliptical, rowing machine, jump rope, indoor cycling and Yoga. The tracker is also able to monitor running and walking automatically along with data points on pacing, kilometres alerts and heart-rate alerts.

The Mi Band 5 comes with a 5 ATM certification which means that it can survive 50 meters underwater for 10 minutes easily. The fitness tracker also supports 24-hour smart heart rate monitoring by up to 50% increased accuracy and also vibrates alerting wearer of irregular heart-rate.

It also comes with 24-hour sleep monitoring which offers 40% improved accuracy over the Mi Band 4 and can monitor your sleeping patterns to create data points that will help you improve your sleeping habits.

The Mi Band 5 can also come in handy for music playback, finding your phone, incoming calls, SMS alerts and more. Unlike the Mi Band 5 in China which is available in two variants-- NFC and non-NFC, in Europe the Mi Smart Band 5 doesn’t come with NFC support. It is priced at EUR 39.99 which roughly translates to around Rs 3,400 by direct conversion.
