Xiaomi yesterday showed what its new potential bestseller Mi Band 5 looks like. As expected, the closer the device’s presentation date is, the more official information about it will begin to appear on the Web. This time, the Chinese company’s Weibo account posted several images that opened up new details about the fitness bracelet.
Firstly, it should immediately be noted that the new Mi Band 5 has finally lost the old charging method. Until that moment, owners of Mi Band fitness bracelets had to remove the tracker module from the recharge strap, which did not affect the durability of this strap in the best way.
In the new Mi Band 5, Xiaomi has implemented a method of magnetically charging the device – just bring the magnetic cable to the charging connectors on the back of the module. You no longer need to remove the device from the strap.
In addition to magnetic charging, the device’s posters published by the Xiaomi press service pay attention to other features of the new product that we could hear about earlier thanks to leaks. For example, the screen of Mi Band 5 has become 20% larger compared to the display of Mi Band 4. Now its size is 1.2 inches, instead of 0.95 inches.
A set of device sensors has also been updated. Although the company does not indicate what kind of sensors in question, the images speak in favor of the presence of a new heart rate sensor. Probably, he will also be able to determine the level of oxygen in the blood. The company also announces updated features for monitoring sleep, stress and breathing.
In addition, new posters confirm information about the presence of functions for tracking the menstrual cycle, remote control of the smartphone’s camera, as well as 11 sports modes. The company also mentioned support for the NFC function, but did not say anything about its availability for the international market.
Despite early rumors, posters also do not report any support for Alexa voice assistant in the international version of Mi Band 5. For the Chinese version of the device, rumors claimed the presence of a voice assistant Xiao AI.
Xiaomi has not yet announced the price of the new Mi Band 5 fitness bracelet. However, according to forecasts, it will leave about $ 25 for the Chinese market. Recall that the official announcement of the new items will be held on June 11.
