Awl for soap – Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is almost no different from Mi Band 4

There is a bracelet called Xiaomi Mi Band. From the very beginning of its existence, it has gained great popularity not only among fans of the brand, but also among those who just wanted to buy an inexpensive, but more or less high-quality accessory. In general, this thing is not for everybody, and personally I have never enthusiastically spoke about it, but the release of a new model every time is a whole event. Especially against the background of the fact that bracelets from other manufacturers are just a dark forest of naming. Xiaomi in this respect, everything is simple and clear. Here are just the new Xiaomi Mi Band 5 somehow very suspiciously reminiscent of Mi Band 4. Has it changed and is it worth buying at all?

This is Ma Band 4. The fifth will be the same.

Many fans have been waiting for this event and waited. I am sure that there are enough people who buy each new generation of this bracelet. Moreover, it is not so expensive and a few tens of dollars a year will not ruin such brand fans. At the same time, they will receive a new gadget, with a new battery and a fresh case. Now they have another reason to fork out.

The first official image of Mi Band 5 has appeared on the net. It is important that this is exactly the official image, which was published on the page Xiaomi on the Weibo social network.

Judging by the image, the new generation of the gadget will look almost identical to the fourth generation of the tracker. This is a little frustrating, since it's time to change something in the design. Let it not be a change regarding the shape of the case or the fastening of the straps, but adding some elements, such as inserts or the like, would not be superfluous. In the meantime, if a person does not know that the picture shows a new watch, he may mistake it for an advertisement for an old gadget, just with new bright straps.

How Mi Band 5 differs from Mi Band 4

However, there is still a slight difference. So the bracelet will receive a slightly larger screen and several new functions. On the one hand, it sounds interesting, but how much larger will the display be for this to be of fundamental importance?

According to the images on the page Xiaomi in Weibo, the tracker will go on sale on June 11, which is exactly one day after we see the new cheap OnePlus Z.

The picture shows a watch with straps in four colors: black, blue, maroon and orange.

Judging by the image, the novelty will have a touch button familiar from the previous generation under the screen. The diagonal of which will definitely be at least 1.2 inches. Also, apparently, the straps for the new tracker will fit from the previous model.

Xiaomi also mentions NFC support in its Weibo teaser, and rumor has it that even the global version will get the feature this time around.

New features confirm the ability to track activities like yoga, rowing machines and ski jumping. The functions of women's health will also be monitored. All this confirms the rumors that appeared earlier.

The novelty will be smarter than the fourth generation.

Of course, a teaser on a social network is not like the full specifications that are indicated in the technical specifications, but that's already a lot. And most importantly, this is official information, not rumors. That is, those who want to buy a new Mi Band can already understand whether it is worth preparing money for the next month. Although, it is not yet clear whether there will be international sales immediately, but gray dealers will probably find a way to quickly bring to us something that will be in great demand. In the end, you can always order a tracker with a package from China.

Should you buy Xiaomi Mi Band 5

In the coming days, new information will appear about what the tracker will be and how much it will be possible to buy. Although I would not be in a hurry to do this yet, and there are several reasons for this.

The first is that the new product may be quite expensive. It is possible that for this money it will be possible to buy one of the good options from Huawei or Honor. Maybe even enough for Samsung, given the pricing of Xiaomi in the case of Xiaomi Mi 10.

Let's say the XIaomi Mi Band 5 gets a slightly larger screen. but is it so important?

Secondly, personally, I would like something newer, and in this case, too, it might be worth taking a closer look at one of the competitors' models.

Let's say that the new product will really have new functions that did not exist before, and that competitors do not have. But is there any sense in them if 99 percent of users still don't even know what functions they have. And if they do, then they certainly don't. It is enough for them that the bracelet vibrates on the hand when a notification arrives, as well as the fact that it shows the time, is light and lasts a long time from the battery.

Other competing trackers can do exactly the same. Even those that cannot boast that they have the ability to track ski jumping. I will say more than that! Even Apple Watch users only use basic functions. Few people draw the maximum potential from a gadget. So maybe it's better to try something new then? Although, of course, everyone will choose for himself. I just personally would like to have something new. Maybe the company is just afraid to make a mistake with the new design?
