The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been a hotly anticipated wearable, especially after the success of the previous few wearables which essentially kickstarted the budget segment for the category. And, as fate would have it, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 has now been launched in China. Let's take a deeper look at the design, specs and price of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5. 

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 Design and Display

Quite expectedly, the Mi Band 5 comes with a 1.2-inch OLED display, but even more importantly, it will be the first in the series to support a magnetic charging dock, fixing one of the most annoying things about the band. You will no longer have to take the tiny wearable out from the strap to charge it. The screen does come with slightly smaller bezels with a large area to give users a better look at the display. 

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 features

The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 comes with a SpO2 blood-oxygen saturation sensor, that helps keep track of breathing and stress. The wearable will also work as a remote camera shutter and the Mi Band 5 is tipped to come with NFC for contactless payments, even outside China for the first time. As of now, we can't say if it'll work in India until the Mi Band 5 is launched here. 

As for the health indicators, the Mi Band 5 will have 11 new activity trackers. Namely, Outdoor running, Treadmill, Cycling, Walking, Freestyle, Pool swimming, Elliptical (New), Rowing machine (New), Jump rope (New), Indoor cycling (New), and Yoga (New).

The Mi Band 5 also comes with some stress and breathing management features that will give you instructions on exhaling and inhaling. And of course, some new watch faces.

The Mi Band 5 will launch in eight colours — Black, yellow, red, deep blue, grey, purple, pink, green

And, while the launch did not reveal anything about support for a virtual assistant, rumour has it that the Mi Band 5 will have native Alexa support.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 price and availability

Now that the device has been officially launched, we can see that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 without NFC will cost around 189 Yuan (Rs 2030 approx) while the model that comes with NFC support will be priced at 229 yuan (Rs 2455 approx). Both variants will be going on sale on June 18 in China.
