Latest fitness tracker by Xiaomi, the Xiami Mi Smart Band 5 is available on Amazon. It can be brought all across United States and few of the other countries as well. This global variant of Mi Band 5 is nearly identical to its Chinese counterpart except for the fact that it does not offer NFC payments or SpO2 technology.
Mi Band 5 was unveiled across Asia back in June of this year. It came with a 1.1 inch OLED display screen. This display size is larger than any of its predecessors. Other improvements were also offered in some of the existing features as well.
Mi Band 5 was launched internationally under the name of “Mi Smart Band 5”. There is not much to set these two fitness trackers apart except for the fact that the international version lacks SpO2 technology. The Chinese version is also equipped with NFC technology as well.
Lack of these features in Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 ended up disappointing many of the customers who were waiting to make use of the NFC support from their fitness trackers right from their wrists. Blood Oxygen Saturation sensor (SpO2) also did not make it to the international variant which was a little disappointing as well as most of the fitness trackers in market are armed with this technology. Amazon Alexa is not available in this fitness band which also was something expected by both the users and the journalists.
Xiami Mi Smart Band 5 can be brought across Europe for 39.99 euros which is roughly equal to 45 US dollars. This is a little expensive as compared to Xiaomi Mi Band 4 which was launched with a price tag of 35 US dollars. Customers in United States and few of the other countries can also pick up their Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 from Amazon as well.
