The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 was an insanely cheap fitness tracker (£26.99 in the United Kingdom, which works out as about $35) with a relatively impressive feature set. That pretty much sums up all the new features in Xiaomi's latest fitness band. There's also a slightly more expensive variant with NFC, although it's still cheap as chips. The smart wrist band will go on sale in the country starting June 16. You can now also control music on the Mi Band 4, which will obviously have to be my favorite feature.
There is also an Avengers Limited Edition of the Mi Band 4 that comes with coloured bands, a custom metal dial and a matching metal wrist buckle. The display now support touch and there is an inbuilt microphone as well which accepts voice commands.More news: Virat Kohli only Indian in Forbes’ 100 highest-paid athletes list
The Xiaomi Mi Band 4 is priced at CNY169 (~RM102), and the NFC variant is priced at CNY229 (~RM138). Mi Band 4 comes with 5 ATM rating for water resistance, and also identifies different swimming strokes.
The newly launched devices are expected to reach India soon but no official date has been revealed by the company yet. A six-axis sensor also enables motion tracking for running, walking, bike riding, and rope exercises, plus it can also monitor your sleep. The Xiaomi wearable shows steps, time, heart rate, notifications from calls and apps, activities, weather and more. The fitness tracker without NFC is priced at Yuan 169 (around Rs 1700) and the one with NFC is priced at Yuan 229 (around Rs 2,300). The device is 5 ATM rated and is created to identify various swimming strokes, namely freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly, and mixed-style.More news: Cricket World reacts as India great Yuvraj Singh announces retirement
While the AMOLED display sure is a welcome change, the biggest addition to Mi Band 4 comes in the form of an AI voice assistant. As per the company, the latest band from Xiaomi can deliver 20 days of battery life on a single charge.
One of the variants of Mi Band 4 also comes baked with NFC, along with integration for AliPay contactless payment, so you'll now simply be able to tap to pay or enter subway stations in China.More news: Comedian Jon Stewart tears into Congress over 9/11 victims fund
