The device uses a fairly simple concept. A small oval-shaped active module is installed in an ergonomic silicone bracelet. The device is protected from water and dust according to the IP67 standard, it is fixed on the arm using a rustic but reliable mount. Mi Band sits well on the hand, does not irritate the skin and does not interfere due to its compact size.
The main part of the module is made of plastic, while the top panel is made of aluminum. It has 3 indicators that can flash blue, red, orange and green. In addition, there is a vibration feedback for notification of an incoming call or alarm.
To connect to a smartphone or tablet, the Bluetooth 4.0 LE protocol and the Miband application, available only for Android devices, are used. The program is needed to configure and manage the smart bracelet. The main feature of the Mi Band is the calculation of the steps taken per day. The function works very accurately thanks to the algorithm for filtering steps from other hand movements. At the same time, the application even counts the calories burned. The second important function is sleep tracking with a smart alarm clock that wakes the user up in the light sleep phase for the quickest and easiest awakening with a boost of energy for the whole day.
With daily use, the smart bracelet can work up to 30 days without recharging, so you do not have to dock the device every day to replenish the charge overnight.
