Lost my mi band 1 hast night (boooo), decided I might as well go for the 2nd gen. Wasn't fussed about the screen but few other features my old one didn't have.

Price doesn't require any codes, so perhaps can be had cheaper.

+ 3% cash back

It's pretty good. Been using it for around a month now. Not the most accurate but works nicely as an everyday watch and fit band :)

Which is what everyone needs to consider. They may not be as accurate as people might want, but they track to relative accuracy, and provide a motivator. For £20, that's a lot for your money.

I love mine - also useful for message/email alerts especially if your phone is at the bottom of your bag or in a different room!
#4
Ive compared this to a 4 different trackers inc fitbit and polar. from what I remember it better than the flex for step counting.
#5
Sent for one. First time using gearbest. A bit of a wait to get it.
banned#6
Can i connect it with my phone?

As long as you have an Android or Apple smartphone, then yes. There is a free app called 'Mi Fit' available for either platform.
#8
If you need a basic step counter, it's fine.
If you want a more advanced fitness band, looks elsewhere.
Heart Rate monitoring is not continuous, and takes a long time.
The app is buggy. etc.
#9
Great price. Reviews look pretty decent. £22 for a basic activity tracker with HR and sleep. Can't go wrong.
#10
do you have to have your phone connected when running or will it store and sync later
#11
I have the 1S and love it, very tempted to upgrade.
#12
how long does the battery last? is it waterproof?
#13
I have the older version which cost me £11. Works fine compared to my Wifes Fitbit which is an expensive bit of rubbish. I would imagine this device will prove a good buy as with all Xiaomi products.

Mines been going strong for over a week and I've lost 20% of battery and it's completely waterproof...

It stores it in the band's memory - the earlier models could store around 10 days of activity, so I imagine it's the same with the Mi Band 2

​It's not waterproof. Maybe shower proof. My battery is 57 % left after 19 days. only using alarms and enhanced sleep detection.

In both cases, those issues can be resolved by different software. I agree the Mi Fit app is quite poor, the worst thing for me is it wanting to display my weight on the screen when it's got no means of measuring it!! If you get 'Mi Band Tools', its a lot better and gives you extra heart rate features. And for some reason it's a whole load quicker taking your heart rate, which sounds really odd considering it must be hardware rather than software related.

It's still not perfect, for example every so often my heartrate shoots up to 220 and then straight back down. But the graph shows this occasional doubling of numbers, and holding down on the offending item deletes it to give a more consistent graph. And you're still dealing with a wrist based monitor, that simply cannot compete with a chest based one. But none of them can.

The only thing I see as a negative for Mi bands is that they're not accepted as a 'standard'. If you have a fitbit or other 'known' brands, you can join groups and have competitions etc (my work has a league table for exercise). I've not yet figured out how to get a Mi band to join in.
#18
personally think first one is better, more accurate, more battery but mostly the vibraiton feels bit un natural
#19
By the way, I've just noticed this a bit further down on the page;

we feel sorry to inform that the supply of this item is very tight now because of great demands. We will deliver the goods to existing buyers asap based on the stock and begin to receive new order after completing all in-hand orders.

Although it could just be a leftover comment from when it was first released, as the stock level reckons >1000 available.

Yes of course, sellotape or Velcro are the preferred option, stay away from screws and nails.

There is also a pretty decent third-party app for Windows Mobile

Unless you have an iphone, apparently it's okay to drill into those. LINK

Is it possible to transfer the data from the 1s to the band 2? :)

Does the data not get held in your xiaomi account when you sync your band.

I know Gearbest don’t always get the best feedback on here, but I want to add that my Xiami Mi Band arrived this morning - that's eight days after I ordered it, which I think is pretty impressive as it came from China. Incidentally the postage cost is given on the shipping label as 11.87 EUR (~ £10.46) giving a net cost for the device as around twelve quid!

I have it on charge now, so it won’t be put to use until tomorrow. But first impressions are it's stonking value!
