Xiaomi Mi Band 2 Smartband Review

 

Low-cost tracker. A fitness wristband for roughly 20 Euros (~$22) with OLED panel, heart-rate monitor, IP67 certification and a battery life of over 20 days? The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi makes it possible. We tested Xiaomi's Mi Band 2 and report how...

price, very long battery life, OLED panel, comfortable to wear, IP67 certificate

unreliable heart-rate measuring, screen brightness could be higher, availability

Xiaomi's second generation of the Mi Band lineup convinced in our test with its strong price-performance package and comfort in wear. Compared with fitness wristbands from other manufacturers, the Mi Band 2's purchase price is low, and it even offers...

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review

 

With the Xiaomi's Mi Band 2, the Chinese company updates its original $13 fitness tracker with a slightly more expensive version, adding new features such as an 0.42-inch OLED display and a heart rate sensor. The 149 yuan price, which converts to...

The Mi Band 2 is absurdly affordable despite packing in a heart rate sensor, sleep tracking, water resistance and a battery life of a week.

The fitness band doesn't offer the exercise tracking that would make it a perfect accessory.

If you just want a basic fitness tracker for walking, the Mi Band 2 does the job fine, but you'll have to look towards more expensive trackers if you want more features.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review: Reasonably priced fitness tracking

 

The Mi Band 2 from Xiaomi is a reasonably priced fitness tracker that does the basics really well. Check out our full Mi Band 2 review!

Inexpensive, well constructed, lightweight, insane battery life.

Heart rate monitor can be flaky, software can be buggy from time to time.

If you’re looking for a fitness tracker that does the basics and doesn’t break the bank, take a look at the Xiaomi Mi Band 2.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review: king of the budget fitness trackers?

 

Officially released in early June, the Mi Band 2 is the third fitness tracker from Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi. For this new generation, the fitness tracker introduces an LED touch screen module. A very aggressively priced product compared to its...

Excellent value for money ; Simple design ; Waterproof ; OLED display

Imperfect official app ; No monitoring of sport activity ; Inconsistent heart rate sensor

Like the first generation, the Mi Band 2 is a compelling offering from Xiaomi. Positioned in a highly competitive market comprising both high-end trackers of up to $150, along with the more affordable devices down to to $50 – the Mi Band 2 is a great...

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review

 

Xiaomi is back with yet another affordable fitness tracker. Here's everything you need to know about the Xiaomi Mi Band 2!

Very affordable ; Battery lasts around 20 days ; Accurate step/sleep tracking ; Idle Alerts are very helpful

Inconsistent heart rate monitor ; Display can be hard to read outside ; Mi Fit app could use a lot of work

Xiaomi's Mi Band 2 is improved in almost every way over its predecessors, and it's still super cheap. With that said, the inconsistent heart rate monitor, wonky Mi Fit app and a few other caveats should be kept in mind before buying this $40 fitness...

Review: The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is the most disappointing wearable of the year so far

 

Xiaomi has recently released the latest version of their Mi Band fitness tracker range, and while it has a number of new features, it also disappoints in many areas. Check out our full review!

The Mi Band has come a long way since I first reviewed the original a while back. It has grown in features, design, and even price. The overall build quality of the device - as in whether or not it could take a beating - is still solid. I'm a big fan...

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review

 

There's a lot to like about Xiaomi's latest fitness tracker

Comprehensive suite of features ; Stand-out battery life ; Cheaper than just about everything else

Tracking isn't the ultimate in accuracy ; Better-looking trackers are out there ; No integrated GPS

An excellent fitness tracker from Xiaomi, which combines a host of useful features with the standard tracking metrics at a really, really good price. On top of all that, the battery life is great, and the tracker is comfortable and lightweight to wear.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2

 

The Mi Band 2 is the latest wearable fitness tracker from Chinese hardware giant Xiaomi. It follows the cheap but feature-rich Mi Band and Mi Band 1S and introduces a screen for the first time in the range, as well as improved pedometer tech, which...

Great to look at and packed with features, the Mi Band 2 is one of the best-value fitness trackers money can buy.
