Seems like a good price for a fit watch that has been reviewed positively. I know it's Gearbestvbut personally never had any ordering issues.

still waiting for mine 12 days after ordering. From dx.com (from China also) came in 9 days (no charges).

Ordered a few of these from Banggood for about the same price, came in 3 days can't complain. Decent device but the HR monitor is a bit off. HR jumps from 55 to 80bpm erratically.

​3 days from China?? Surely you paid for an "express" service? If not, you must have set some kind of record.

​Im sure I read you can once but can't find the article. These play store apps can do it I think mi heart rate- be fit and tools and mi band. unless your relaxed and staying reasonably still the heart won't be reliable though. other than that it very good, especially battery life.

Showing up as 25.52 GBP for me...

finding it good. But would be better if i could get hr to stay on while training etc Stays on for about 5 seconds at the moment.

If you have an Android phone/device I think there is an app on Google play that offers this.

Shows as £25.52 on website and app

At the moment you can't get heart rate monitor to stay on. There are third party Android apps for earlier Mi Bands, but they don't yet work with the Mi Band 2. And there've never been iOS apps to add functions to any of the Mi Bands apart from the official Xiaomi iOS app. Another thing about the Mi Band 2 is you really can't read the screen in bright daylight...not just sunshine...but it's difficult to read even in normal cloudy daylight.
Apart from that, it's a great device. The battery lasts for weeks...mine on it's first charge is at 60% two weeks after it was fully charged. Notifications work well...as far as vibration goes. And steps and heartrate monitors seem to be as accurate as most others. Sleep monitoring is pretty good...it tells you when it thinks you went to sleep and woke up and which were periods of deep sleep and shallow sleep.
You can also buy third party wrist bands that can change the look of it.

I think it was in a promotion called 'Early Oktoberfest' .
Looks like they have run out of the promotional ones now .

Being made in China by a Chinese company I'm guessing it monitors a lot more than your sleep pattern and footsteps? (_;)

They may have fixed this, but the original Band's Android App asked for EVERY permission possible including making premium rate calls, reading SD Card and access to Contacts!!!!

It was also USELESS for sleep tracking - at least with the Android App - it has no manual 'sleep switch' and has NO idea when you goto bed either...

mi band tools on droid does constant hr monitoring and smart alarms. I find the sleep stuff is spot on with the 2 using hr assist, but it sometimes doesn't register wake ups unless you move to another room.

Mi band tools works with the mi band 2 and it can monitor the heart rate continuously at 25sec intervals which is good enough for most. All I'm waiting for is an app to give walking directions from google navigation and this will do all I need and the battery life is like you say, very good

3 days now that's super fast. Certainly could not have come from their China warehouse and even express delivery from their EU warehouse takes longer than 3 days I've found.

Funny, but most probably true !!

The price is still 29.99 USD which is currently 22.99. make sure your currency is set to USD. You will only get this price if you use a credit card that doesn't charge or offer bad conversion rates. PayPal conversation rates are shockingly poor.

Ordered mine last week (Monday) and I received on Saturday, delivered by Yodel . I selected the HK2 warehouse, but was actually posted at West Drayton. Great bit of kit and so far very accurate. Just checked and using the app its £21.09

Paid for express delivery and insured postage on the 15th and its still processing. iirc it said it was on backorder when I finally got to the order page.

I bought mine from Gearbest along with other things for around £26, I received the item from China in 10 days. I have owned all generations/revisions of the Mi Band, and so far I really like the Mi Band 2.

Mini review!:
The band is slimmer and more comfortable, the electronic unit itself is really well made. The display is perfect for simple time/stats indication. I disagree with another previous comment made by @iainmann above, the display can be read easily in sunlight (I even have a tiny screen protector installed on mine).
Software-wise there are a couple of new notification features available, though I do not use those. I also rarely use the heart-rate sensor, but it does work (though I cannot vouch for it's accuracy, I do not have a medical equipment to compare it with). The alarm/snooze feature works extremely, I am very impressed by that. The "Idle" reminder is also well appreciated.

Also, referring to the same comment above, if your iPhone is jailbroken, you can install a tweak for MiNotifier2 which gets you a lot of additional controls on the Mi Band 2, including running the heart rate sensor continuously. https://cydia.online/package/org.thebigboss.minotifier2

Overall, I love the device, I think it's a brilliant update from the previous updates, and having used Fitbits, Misfit and Nike devices in the past, I still believe this is the best value for money band on the market! Also, it shows the date and time now!

Was looking at something like this. Worth a shout for £20-odd. Always enjoy having a browse at the $0.99 deals too, crazy what you can pick up for a golden nugget

£22.96 at the time of posting. (By paying Gearbest in GBP rarther than paying in USD and letting PayPal hike the conversion rates)
Slightly cheaper than banggood even with the current promotion

hi, just glad to let you know: I am working on setting up UK currency.
Once it has been done, then, it will show in pound, not USD
(Probably by the October if everything goes well )

1. Can you take a bath in shallow water with this?
2. Can this be paired with the phones GPS/maps to work out distance travelled etc, obviating the need for the more expensive fitbit trackers with separate GPS? Like this yet to be released model gearbest.com/sma…tml
3. Does it have the same problem as my current cheap tracker, which is unable to tell that I'm sedentary while I'm on the computer hammering away at the keyboard? Cheers!

Youtube video showing the setup with Endomondo youtube.com/wat…nQk and it's IP67 rated so you can swim in it.

have to agree with fire_emblem I'm happier with the mi-band 2 than the other things (fitbit / original pebble / sony smart watch 3 / sony swr30) I've tried .

I'm hoping the next generation would be slightly bigger to show me text messages and email subject/sender in the alert function then it would be perfect.

for £25 its a fantastic device.

Ordered. Thanks OP - heat!

Total: £22.96

depends where in the world you are and which of their warehouses have stock, if you order from China but it's in stock in an EU warehouse it will be delivered quicker otherwise it's about 3 weeks from China which is normal

Step counter on this seems accurate, but the sleep monitor is poor. If I wake in the night and leave the bed, nothing registers in the sleep stats even though steps are recorded (maybe I'm sleep walking!). Official app is poor compared to my wifes Jawbone UP.

Just done a 5 mile walk measured with Google maps. The band 2 measured 9742 steps and 4.95 miles. Quite accurate!

Edited by: "dcpurple" 19th Sep 2016

I've not yet upgraded from my 1s but am tempted due to the display. I would highly recommend the mi band notify and fitness app you can do so much more than with the official app, plus full control over hear rate monitoring. It is also compatible with Google fit which is a plus.
I find with my 1s the sleep tracking is very accurate and would assume it would be on par or better with this

Hey guys, any suggestions on something waterproof with a decent heartrate monitor? I see mention of the vivosmart hr in another thread, any other suggestions? I want to be able to go running, swimming and cycling with it, though a model to do all three seems to be hard to come by. Personal experiences much appreciated.

I have the 1s but now looking for something new as it has stopped measuring steps after 9 months usage. Not sure i will give this one a go. Anyone else had similar issues with a 1s?

1. So far I have only been showering with it, I will update the post when I have the chance to swim with it.
2. I don't think that functionality is available through the official app for the band.
3. My unit actually knows I am on my PC, and keeps reminding me every hour to go for a walk and stop fixing the screen so much.
