There are a lot of fitness trackers out on the market, but none seem to hit the mark as well as the Xiaomi Mi Band. With the original we got all the things you’d expect from a good smartwatch, but for a fraction of the cost. Now Xiaomi is back with the Mi Band 1S which takes the entire package one step further, no pun intended.
As far as looks are concerned, the Mi Band 1S is identical to the original. The device is also still IP67 water resistant and has all the same features as the original. Added this time around is a heart rate monitor and the ability to track the quality of your sleep. The heart rate sensor is built into the bottom of the removable aluminum module and that is presumably what is used to track the quality of your sleep.
For the $15 (99 Yuan) price tag on this device, you simply can’t ask for more. This looks like an awesome little product and it’s a steal for the price. However if every penny counts, Xiaomi has also discounted the original Mi Band to just $11 (69 Yuan). Orders start November 11th direct from Xiaomi.
