Xiaomi has officially launched the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 in China. The new fitness tracker from Xiaomi gets a host of new features which should appeal to a broader range of audience. The Mi Band 3 was never officially launched in Nepal, however, due to high demand, we could see the market flooded with grey-market Mi Band 3s. Will the Mi Band 4 launch in Nepal? We aren’t entirely sure yet but will keep you posted.
If you hadn’t heard of Mi Band before, here are a couple of things you will want to know. First of it, it’s one of the bets selling fitness trackers around the world (yes, around the world) and it’s priced highly competitively. In addition to that, the fitness tracker always had enough hardware for light tracking. Starting Mi Band 1s, the fitness tracker included heart-rate sensor alongside accelerometer. Each new iteration of the Mi Band added new set of features and the Mi Band 4 adds new features to already excellent Mi Band 3.
The highlight of the Mi Band 4 is the color OLED display. This is the first Mi Band to feature a color display and from the looks of it, it looks pretty good. In addition to the inclusion of a color display, the new Mi Band 4 also features a larger battery to accommodate the larger color screen. The Mi Band 3 featured a 110mAh battery and the Mi Band 4 now has a 135mAh battery. While the battery has certainly grown in size, don’t expect to get better battery life. Just like its predecessor, the Mi Band 4 too will last around 15-18 days before requiring a recharge.
Just like the Mi Band 3, the Mi Band 4 is water-resistant up to 50 meters which means that you can take your Mi Band 4 to the pool without having to worry about water ingress inside the tracker.
Another new feature is a 6-Axis sensor which will help the tracker detect your posture accurately and ultimately detect more workouts. The Mi Band 4 is also able to identify various swimming strokes including freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, mixed-style and more. Not only that, the tracker will detect and determine your swimming skills.
In addition to that, Mi Band 4 is the first Mi Band to come with microphone built-in. You can use the microphone to give voice commands using which you will be able to control IoT devices.
Apart from hardware changes, the Mi Band 4 also comes with a lot of color options for the band. You will not only be able to get the Mi Band 4 band in Red and Black color but a plethora of other color options is available too including Blue, Pink, Gold and more.
We can hope that Mi Nepal will launch the Mi Band 4 in a few months time and not ignore the product completely. What do you think about the Mi Band 4? If you can the fitness tracker for under Rs. 4,500, will you be buying one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below.
