Xiaomi Teases its Highly Anticipated Smartwatch, the Mi Band 1S
In the wearable segment, Xiaomi hit a jackpot last year, when it announced the Mi Band. The device was another bonafide hit from the company and it looks like the company is keen to follow its success. Xiaomi has announced the possibility of Mi Band 1S in a teaser. Although the band was expected to be announced yesterday, it seems some delay has come up.
Unveiled in July last year, the Mi fitness band is an aluminium surface band that comes with a micro laser perforation and no display screen. It can be used as a fitness and sleep tracking band and connects to a user’s smartphone and can unlock the handset without the need of passwords or patterns. It is water resistant and has a battery life of 30 days. It is available in a variety of colours like blue, pink, brown, grey and purple. It can also be customised with leather straps.
Xiaomi Mi Band is one of the cheapest wearable device in the market, which explains its success in the international market. In May, Xiaomi held the first flash sale for the Mi Band in India, which got over within seven seconds after opening at 5 p.m.
The new Mi Band 1S, is expected to feature a heart-rate monitor and a couple of other improvements. The Mi Band is currently available in India at a price of Rs. 999.
