Xiaomi has launched the Mi Band successor called the Mi Band 1S. This band inherits all of the feature that were found on the Mi Band and apart from that the 1S also comes with a heart rate sensor. Mi Band 1S is priced at RMB 99 (approx ₹1029).
This Mi Band 1S will monitor the steps taken, calories burned, heart rate activity and can also measure sleep quality. Unfortunately the band looks like its predecessor – there is no display instead you will need to rely on the LED light notification + vibration for alerts.
This new band is 9.9mm thick and weighs slightly more than the previous version. It is IP67 certified that makes it dust and water resistant. The built-in battery capacity is 45mAh it is the same that is being used on the Mi Band , this means that on the 1S with the heart rate sensor the battery backup will be less.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 1S fitness band with heart rate sensor will go on sale from 11th November in China for RMB 99. This will also be made available in the Indian markets but no official confirmation yet.
The Mi Band price in India is ₹999 and whenever this 1S band enters the Indian market it could be priced at under ₹2000.
