Xiaomi’s Mi Band 2 is one of those minimal yet gorgeous looking fitness bands. The rubber built feels premium and soft to the hands. The band holds the sensor in place and this unique setup adds to its aesthetics. Xiaomi has done some rigorous testing to make sure MI Band 2 truly serves as fitness band for all kind of activities.

As mentioned earlier in the post, the Mi band 2 has a separate sensor pod which also holds the display for the band. This 0.42 inch OLED display is bright enough to be visible in the broad daylight. The band can be controlled via the round button located just below the display. There are 6 menu options and each tap takes you to the next option. The 1st tap shows the date and time on the band and the next tap will display options like Steps count, Distance traveled, Calories burned, Heart rate and the Battery level. The characters on the display are big enough to be visible from a distance and the touch is quick at its response.

The heart rate sensor can be used to check your heart rate. The best thing about the MI Band 2 is that it is ‘Waterproof’ as well as ‘Dust-proof’ & comes with a IP67 rating.

Just wear the band on your hand, do your activities and let the band take care of the rest. But in order to receive notifications for calls, messages and other apps; you have to keep your band connected to the phone with Bluetooth. You can also use the band to unlock your phone, pretty interesting, isnt it? . To calibrate your Heart Rate, fasten up the belt and stay still while using this feature on the band. To power up the band, it comes with 70 mAh battery. Though it sounds pretty small but it gives you a battery time of 20 days. Its hassle free, charge it for 3 hours and and stay focused on your fitness goals without worrying about the battery being out of charge.
