People will vote this cold as they are used to overpriced iWatches

Still waiting for mine, ordered few weeks ago

I got one of these last time they were cheap and it is a very good watch.

My wife has a FitBit HR and they are pretty much on a par, with the exception of the battery life, my one lasts a week without charging, the fitbit lasts about 3 days

One word of warning tho' the last time I looked the official Android app broke the HR function on the Xiaomi. It may have been fixed by now but I dont know as I use a windows phone so have had to use a 3rd party app, whch works fine.

I bought mine a few months ago and I've never had a problem with the app.

Same here, ordered when the deal was posted 2 weeks ago. Wish I'd of gone elsewhere than Gearbest and paid a tad more for it to be here by now. Good price, terrible delivery times!

Anyone have any experience of these on an iphone?

Looks like they have fixed it in the latest release, all the reviews in the app store before 17/11 complain about the update breaking the HR function, these seem to have stopped now.

great bit of kit, the pulse monitor can be sometimes dubious but all in all worth just shy of £20. The battery also last 2-3 weeks off one charge

Using it for a week-its ok. Order some screen protoctors for it.
And if you want a open source app for use with the band - check out gadget bridge on f-droid app store - its still in development but as I see so is mi fit.

Purchased mine from GeekBuying for around £18.50 delivered (for the "International Version") - it arrived in 9 days from China.

Everything works flawlessly - including the heart monitor. Mi Band 2 is streets ahead of earlier versions, and worth every penny.

HTH

* Apple Watch

Mine arrived in about a week. Very impressed with it considering it was sub £20.

Ordered last time round, using it everyday, battery is unbelievable good, just make sure you get the app to set it up for the extra features like vibrate when you get a message etc.

Ordered mine last time and still waiting for delivery

Got mine last week it took 2 weeks to get here and yes there is an issue with firmware it seems.

Been using mine a week or so now. Even tracked my running etc at the gym fine. Logs to Google Fit too if you set it up.
Got to let it download the latest updates though, there was 2 firmware updates for mine

​A lot of people don't update to the new firmwares, I don't know why.

Bought one of these last time it was on offer and fitted a screen protector off Ebay. Took about 9-10 days to come from China and really impressed. Has a much better charger attachment than an Up3 bracelet we own (which cost a lot more) The USB on this has a little docking slot that I personally find a lot easier to use and it doesnt keep losing charge. I downloaded the free Mi Fit which synched everything easily after setting up and records my sleep and steps. Sleep is quite basic compared to Up3 app, as it just concentrates on amount of sleep, deep and light sleep with the odd heartbeat recording. I've not found much in the way of other apps yet that can record running or gym workouts. I downloaded Mi Band Tools for £1.79, which to be honest didnt add much more in the way of functions, than the free Mi Fit app. These two apps can conflict so make sure you set one of them to give you notifications rather than both. I usually miss Whatsapp conversations if my phone is in my pocket. I now get a little Whatsapp notification and vibrate when a msg comes through. It does exactly what I need but isnt intrusive in an office environment. I have checked the heartrate monitor and find it only a couple of beats off the expensive treadmills our gym has. Battery life is amazing and lasts for days. 4-5 days of wearing and still at 80% so I reckon at present potentially 15-20 days on a single charge. Also you can download Mi Band 2 function button, which allows you to tap the button to cycle through Spotify/music playlists. Again its something small but really useful in the gym when you dont have to keep stopping and changing playlists/tracks. All in all it offers exceptional value for money, best 20 quid I've spent. Any questions give me a shout.

Thx for the review. Going to order one, upgrading from my previous mi band original.

Thanks OP, might as well finally bite. Got 2, seems to work well on both Android and iPhone.

If it ever arrives! Ordered 2 on different occaisions, 8 weeks later still not arrived. Had to claim through paypal.

Ordered mine as part of the black Friday deals. Arrived yesterday, seems pretty good so far for the price.

Reviews look good. Heat added.

extra £1.50 for priority delivery? 10-20 days instead of up to 35

I didn't get a choice, so unless people just aren't using the official app, or aren't connected to the internet I'm not sure how they *dont* get the update!

Just beware that customs might might hit you for vat.... if they do the courier company will add a handling charge as well.

Thanks for the detailed review, I'm tempted to order one now

Thanks

Good price, however I recently (few weeks back) ordered something from GearBest and ended up getting a refund, they were taking ages to despatch my items even though they were in stock, but to be fair to GB they did reply and refund me pretty quickly.

Heat for the flamedeer

What practical uses does it have ? I think my phone measures steps already, I was looking for something to use when skiing/windsurfing - distance, max/avg speed, altitude etc., I guess this is a wrong device for that ?

Ive got mine! it's brilliant

not bad thanks !

This isn't the fitness tracker you're looking for! It's a great little device but it only measures steps, distance (based off amount of steps), calories burned (also based on steps) sleep and HR. It won't do altitude, measure speed and won't track activities such as skiing/and windsurfing. If you're after a step counter it's brilliant, but for other activities you're going to have to spend a bit more I'm afraid! Hope that helps...

I've noticed geekbuying sell a global version for ~£1 more.
Does anyone have any idea what this adds to the band?
