The second iteration of Xiaomi's fitness tracking band, Xiaomi Mi Band 2. The tracker features an OLED display -- which is touted as resistant to scratches and fingerprints, and helps the wearer track time, notifications, heart rate, calories burned, and number of steps taken among other things. The company says that Mi Band 2 can function for 20 days on a single charge.

Does the heart rate tracker actually record constantly or is it every 5 seconds?

I ask as some of the trackers don't record like a watch/heart strap does to save battery life.

How does this compare to a Microsoft Band (1 or 2)? Apart from being a lot cheaper of course LOL

I guess it's too early for anyone to comment on this..
Interesting, don't think it's worth £30 though. Will wait for it to drop a bit.

any review?
how long is warranty?
Wareable review here. It's launched Tuesday 7 June, so probably will get cheaper by end of month.
Xiaomi's rrp for the Mi band 2 is $23.
No supply, high demand, hence $40 price.
As others have suggested, leave a couple of months for price drop and reviews.

I'm a Miband 1 user and am very happy with it. The official app won't record heart rate continuously but there is another paid app that does it continuously. It's not that accurate though but the app gets frequent updates and is improving all the time.

Like others have said, this is expensive relative to the Miband1, the only extra (but useful) feature is the clock.

Also note the Miband1 (so probably Miband2) won't work with the Bounts App.

I plan on getting my whole family on these for XMas, I find the Miband1 really useful which encourages me to exercise. Hopefully the price can drop to similar to the Miband1 by October.

You can have the vidonn x6 for less that supports Android AND iOS notifications. Sleep tracking is better on xiaomi though, notifications better on Vidonn

Doesn't appear to have a heart rate sensor?

It's dropping a little over night already, £27.82. 1S didn't take long to drop about a tenner either.
how much is import charges on this, any ideas?

May be another model from vidonn has the HR, just wanted to highlight about notifications for equivalent price xiaomi doesn't support them, and it's even rarer to support iOS notifications for 25£... And vidonn x6 does. If the focus is purely fitness It's another story ;-)
I have xiaomi band, the one without display. Half the functions don't work. heart rate monitor is crap, for readings taken within a min, it will vary by 100+. Steps are very inaccurate. waste of money...

Fair enough I agree notifications it seems like Xiaomi are going backwards on. The first version of the band with coloured LEDs was really useful for that and each new iteration seems to have less functionality in that regard.

I wish they would make one that was properly waterproof too. I would pay more if I could swim with it confidently.

The tightness of the band seems to make large difference to the accuracy. But not, it isn't fantastically accurate. It does well enough for a rough guide.
These officially go on sale in China on 7th June.
I have the 1s and 2nd generation mibands. they're both really good, especially considering the face that they're £10.
The notifications are accurate and the heart rate monitor on the 1s is accurate when still.

I'm planning to get the new one as the ability to have a watch and use the heart rate sensor whilst moving, really appeals to me and at £16 (the price it will be selling at in China) you can't go wrong. I still think that £30 is a good price.

This doesn't have the same specs as the Microsoft band but for the price, accuracy and features it's worth the price

Thanks dude.
Now down to $29.99 here and 5% Topcashback. Say £19.65 net. May not wait that much longer...
Use the 1s all the time, but mainly just for fitness tracking not the heart rate monitor. Interested in this one, but may wait a little to see how much they drop after launch.
Doesn't look like the old band will fit the new one, looks close though.
I have just bought the 1s (AKA Pulse) last week (typical). I use the heart rate monitor on Android with a 3rd party app that adds near-continuous heart rate monitoring and decent notifications support. The heart rate readings were about 30bpm above actual for the first day and then seemed to sort themselves out. I wonder if the firmware got updated or something. My biggest gripe is the activity monitoring which can't tell the difference between walking and typing or even sometimes just watching telly. The details for the Band 2 specifically mention improved step tracking so hopefully they have been able to address this.

This inaccurate step counting is actually with all fitness watches/ bands! Had it on my vivosmart and there's reports of Fitbit and new garmin watches like the vivoactive hr having the same issue!!
you need immediate feedback for a heart rate monitor or what's the point ?
Very tempted when the initial hype and demand dies down

Interesting review here:
cnx-software.com/201…er/
I have used both the Miband 1 and 1S. The 1 had more accurate results, the 1S gives out random numbers sometimes.
I've been using mine for 2 day, the pedometer is OK although I think it overestimated me by about 20%
notifications work well and the sleep tracking is looking OK too
HR Monitor is pretty pants and has be at 59BPM as and when it works...

That is still no where near the deal price of £28.20 though. Please expire. Deal is dead.
Too expensive, should drop soon.
