Yes, it was cheaper at preorder but this is a good price. Banggood have it at £20. Other places at £27.

Not a good price. Was 10 pounds straight after release and 16 not long time ago. Best to wait for a while if it's not urgent. Great product anyway. Using daily

How is this different than the one that was recently going for £7ish?

I have this cheaper version. This one uses light sensor to measure your heart rate.
Mi Band good. Gearbest bad.
Beware this company is terrible.
Excellent price for the heart rate version

​I think you bought the earlier version which is £8. This is the latest variation with HR
Ah right - cheers. I quite fancy a heart sensor but I have really really narrow wrists. Is this likely to cause a problem?

Band is quite flexible so it shouldnt be a problem :-)
But apparently doesn't monitor heart rate continuously - only when you tap the app on your phone.

Even on the very last hole there's still a slight gap - I've had similar issues with the HR watches.
Oh dear

You must have tiny wrists ! I am on the last hole to make it the widest, and it just fits me...

I don't know what issues other people have had with GearBest but I have ordered 5 things over the last year or so (including 2 of these bands which I received yesterday) and haven't had any issues ? £33.41 for 2

Where? Cheapest price I saw was £14 and quickly went up to £19.
Anyone got theirs yet? What do you think of it?
Had mine for about a week and a half.
Works fine, as expected. Battery life not quite as good as the first one, but I have the heart sleep check option on which uses more power. 74% after 6 days, so probably 24 days for a full cycle ?
Haven't done a side by side comparison against my MIO Alpha 2 for accuracy yet but will next workout.
So I've got this. I've had a mi band pretty much since release and I really like it. Here's what I've found with the heart monitor;

While Running;
-If you start a running activity, the heart rate monitoring will be continuous until you stop the activity. It will give you an average heart rate at the end of the run. I run my preferred run tracker (runkeeper) at the same time. At the end of the run I edit the runkeeper activity to add my average heart rate. There is no provision to extract all the data, or see a graph, you only get the average heart rate. You need to have your phone with you while you run.
-You can set an alert to warn you if you reach a particular heart rate. I set it too low when I tried it and it was buzzing every minute or so and was very annoying. I read Chris Ryan's SAS fitness a couple of years ago and it suggested that you could exercise vigorously until hitting a target heart rate, and then 'rest' for a bit, before bringing yourself back up to your target heart rate. I need to do some research as there's a lot of conflicting info about heart rate zones, but this could be a useful feature.

While Sleeping
-There is an option to sporadically check your heart rate while sleeping. This promises to provide more detailed sleep tracking, at the expense of a bit of battery. There is no visual difference to the sleep graph.

User Activated
-You can use the app to ask the band to check your pulse whenever you like. I've had a few erroneous results but on the whole it's accurate.

If you are not going to run with your phone (and you are not bothered about more accurate sleep tracking) I would suggest either not upgrading or buying a generation 1 mi band. You can check your pulse using your smart phone camera and an app (I use instant heart rate for android, but there's a plethora of options) Not upgrading will afford you better battery life.

I have a third party leather effect band which I bought for my original band, the 1s fits in the band perfectly.

Has anybody claimed it was an american company ?

.com is an American, .co.uk is UK, you get the drif, but it's still an Chinese company that sells fake products, plus the description refers to the older version, this is already dodgy
Not really, there at least three people that have ordered and confirmed received the correct version !

But obviously make you own mind up.
