Smart Watches - Xiaomi Mi Band 2 With Oled Display, Heart Rate Sensor Black
The new Mi Band 2, similar to other existing wearable devices in the market, focuses on the user's health by helping track fitness and sleep patterns. One of the biggest additions to the new Mi Band 2 is the 0.42-inch Oled display which shows time, steps taken, and heart rate count among others. Another notable addition is the PPG (photo plethysmography) sensor as a heart rate monitor. The new Mi Band 2 packs a 70mAh battery which the company claims up to 20 days of standby time.
Xiaomi's Mi Band 2 keeps the iconic design, but replaces the three LED lights with a 0.42" OLED display. There is also a touch-sensitive key below the tiny screen, which helps you switch between the different notification panes.Other notable upgrades are the bigger battery (70mAh), improved HR sensor, better motion tracking sensor, and enhanced Bluetooth connectivity. The strap also got a refreshed design.
The Mi Band 2 is slightly bigger and thicker than its predecessors, though Xiaomi managed to keep its elegant style rather intact. The entire front is covered with a scratch and fingerprint resistant glass, while the touch-sensitive key is made of anodized 0.05mm metal piece.
Naturally, the bottom of the Mi Band 2 has the new optical HR sensor, while the charging pins are at one of the sides.
Xiaomi's Mi Band 2 is dust and water proof (IP67), so you won't have to worry about anything. And if smudged, you can easily wash it under tap water.
The new strap is softer and more pleasant for the skin. It features an enhanced design in order to keep the Mi Band 2 firmly inside. Xiaomi promises it won't accidentally pop up from the strap.
The small 0.42" OLED display is of the monochrome variety. It can display the time, step count, total distance, burnt calories, heart rate, battery percentage, and icons for incoming notifications (messages, email, calls, among others).
The screen is bright enough and is visible even under direct sunlight. And it blends well underneath the back glass on the band's front.Due to the small pixel count the screen can only display notification icons such as message or email icon, and not text, but that still counts for something. The older bands did this with different LED colors or number of vibrations.
The display of the new Mi Band 2 is definitely the highlight new feature. Thanks to the small thingy, you can now see the time by lifting your wrist or tapping the key. Tapping repeatedly will start cycling between the panes you've enabled from the Mi Fit app - Time, Steps, Distance, Calories, Heart rate, Remaining battery.
You can measure your heart rate by cycling to the appropriate pane, or, if disabled, you can use the Mi Fit app to fire the heart rate sensor.
The band tracks your step count quite well and sleep. Its software automatically calculates distance and burnt calories and those are transferred to the Mi Fit app upon sync. You can set a step goal if you like.
You can enable automatic heart-rate measurements during your sleep and they will provide much more accurate information, but this will have a rather huge impact on the battery life.
You can also set up idle alerts and avoid long non-activity intervals. There is also a neat DND mode which I used to avoid distractions at night.
All health data collected by the Mi Band 2 - heart rate measurements, steps, distance, calories, sleep info and activity - can be used by other apps such as Apple's Health app.
Finally, the Mi Band 2 supports alarms which you can set from the Mi Fit app.
