Okay guys here is the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 and Lenovo HW01 fitness band comparison. I have already done review of both these fitness devices and now in this article I have compared the bands so you will know which one is the best.
Xiaomi Mi Band 2 Vs Lenovo HW01 design
Both fitness devices looks different, built and finishing is very good. Lenovo looks more classy but Band 2 is a little slimmer. Both fitness bands come with dedicated touch sensitive button. The button is visible on Mi Band 2 but not on Lenovo HW01.
The strap on the Mi Band 2 is hard compared with Lenovo HW01 – Lenovo fitness band strap is soft. Mi Band 2 is different you can remove the tracker / change the strap when needed. Also to charge Mi Band 2 you need to remove tracker and use the charging adapter.
On the Lenovo HW01 there is no such option. For charging the band there is micro USB port directly built in, just use the cable and charge. The issue on HW01 is that the strap is part of the body. This fitness band is available in full black and full red color options.
Mi Band 2 vs Lenovo HW01
0.42″ OLED | 0.91″ OLED
Bluetooth 4 | Bluetooth 4.2
IP67 (underwater 30 minutes – 1 meter) | IP65 (splash proof)
70 mAh battery | 90 mAh battery
Though both bands are IP67/IP65 certified avoid using it under shower or when swimming.
Xiaomi Mi Band 2 Vs Lenovo HW01 performance
Both bands gave consistent results, they can monitor your physical activities and can continuously monitor heart rate via app. Battery life is almost same, around 15 days. Specs are better on the Lenovo HW01 and the only issue is the strap that is part of the body, if it gets damaged you cannot change it, though the strap is of a good quality and should last for many years.
Also note both these fitness band display is not at all visible under direct sunlight.
