A discreet connected bracelet on the wrist

The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 looks almost like two drops of water compared to the previous model, the Band 4. The shape is the same, but the screen here is a bit bigger than before. Still OLED, the diagonal goes from 0.94 to 1.1 inches for a little more comfort in use. We did not reach the 1.56 inches of the recent Mi Smart Band 6, but that’s it. On this screen we obviously find the display of some notifications related to your smartphone, such as messages, calls or emails. It’s even possible to use the bracelet to remotely control your phone’s camera. However, there is still no NFC support, which does not allow you to pay with Google Pay, for example.

Long battery life and many features

This Xiaomi connected bracelet launched in the summer of 2020 also introduced the magnetic charging system. It is a very practical accessory, since it allows you not to remove the cover from its silicone strap to charge it, thanks to two electrodes on the back. The charge is quite fast, but what impresses the most is the autonomy of the Mi Smart Band 5, since the latter can last about two weeks on your wrist.

Obviously, health is at the center of the experience with precise user control in relation to heart rate or sleep analysis via the Mi Fit app available on iOS and Android. Menstrual cycle tracking is also included. Athletes will not be disappointed with the 11 sports activities automatically recorded by the bracelet, including swimming thanks to its water resistance. You can also calculate the distance traveled and the number of calories burned, for example.
