Review of Xiaomi Mi Band 2 - one step further
  • Xiaomi is one of the most successful resellers in the fitness bracelets market.
  • Xiaomi fitness bracelets are popular especially thanks to low cost and high battery life.
  • Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is the first bracelet from this company with a display.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 Fitness Bracelet, like the previous model, consists of two parts. The first is a metal module and the other is a smooth silicone strip into which the module is inserted. The connection is better secured than the predecessor, so the tape module should not be dropped.

With the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S predecessor, it happened to me once that the metal module was dropped and the same scrutiny was noticed by more reviewers. The bracelet has a universal size and should fall, by its size, on any hand. The tape is replaceable, with a choice of several colors.

The bracelet is designed to be worn 24 hours a day and is very light, the module weighs just 7g. Once you put it on your hand, you get used to it quite soon and you soon forget you wear it. Xiaomi Mi Band bracelets are one of the most comfortable that you can buy.

Like the predecessor, the Xiaomi MI 2 smart bracelet also offers IP67 certification that ensures dust and water resistance for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 m. With the bracelet, you can either get wet or take a shower, but it is no longer recommended to swim. In my case, however, he managed several visits to the swimming pool without any problem.

When charging it is necessary to remove the module so that it can reach the charging two-pin connector on the side. The detached module simply connects to the charging adapter and charges via USB.

Display and technical parameters

The biggest novelty of the new Xiaomi is the  0.42 “monochrome OLED display. It is very clear and is relatively easy to read even in direct sunlight. The information displayed on the display can be set via the phone using Mi. You have time, steps, distance, burned calories, heartbeat and remaining batteries. The display covers a glossy panel that should be resistant to fingerprints and scratches. The touchpad is a touchpad that switches individual information. If you choose heart rate, the bracelet will measure it for a few moments. As with the predecessor, it does not measure the pulse continuously, and it is necessary to keep your hand calm.

The bracelet drives a battery of  70 mAh capacity and promises up to 20 days of stamina. It is possible to even exceed this problem quite a bit, depending on how many functions you use (not) the bracelet.

MI 2 Function

During the day, the bracelet measures the missed steps and distance and at night monitors your sleep. Step and sleep data are stored in history, with clear graphs and average values per week or month. In the application, it is possible to set a daily target (10,000 steps per day recommended) which will vibrate when the bracelet is completed.

Measuring steps during walking alone are very accurate even though I have a hand in the rest and kept the phone in it. Unfortunately, the bracelet during the day with different hand movements counted on the steps even though I did not go. In one case, he even alerted me to the successful completion of the goal (8000 steps) while sitting at the table.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2

Sleep measurement is also very accurate. The bracelet itself recognizes that the user sleeps, can measure the light and deep sleep phase, and also records the waking time during the night. But it’s hard to tell how much the data of light and deep sleep is accurate.

With MI 2 you can also activate call, SMS, or other applications that you allow. When an incoming call or SMS bracelet starts vibrating, which is great especially if you do not have your phone in your pocket or in the eyes while you have headphones. An icon will also appear on the display to make it clear what the notification is about.

The application allows you to set up an alarm that vibrates on your hand reliably only wakes you up without disturbing your surroundings. So your dear half can sleep peacefully.

With the application, you can watch the steps and the sleep of your friends who own the bracelet. Simply send a generated QR code to you. It is also possible to send a nudge that will show vibration.

The last feature is ignoring the phone lock if the bracelet is near. Sometimes, unfortunately, it occurred to me that even though the phone required (tested with Honor 7) code and I’m not quite sure why.

Application MI 2

To use the bracelet, you must create a Xiaomi user account. The application is relatively simple and minimalist and you can quickly find it. Each time a synchronization takes place within a few seconds, step-by-step and sleep data is downloaded from the bracelet. It can be viewed in history using clear graphs along with daily, weekly, and monthly averages. Unlike purebred fitness trackers, the application lacks any incentive function. It is still possible to save the body weight history to the application, but you must enter it manually.

What we like on mi 2

  • Low weight
  • Elegant look
  • High battery life
  • IP67 certification
  • Heart rate measurement

mi 2 What could be improved

  • The steps measure exactly, but it adds them when you move your hands even if you do not go
  • The heart rate is only measured at the selected moment
  • It is not a full fitness tracker

Conclusion

And we’re at the end of the review. The xiaomi mi band 2 continues successfully where the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S predecessor ended. All the benefits of the previous bracelet have been preserved, plus an OLED display. However, the tax is a bit higher and slightly less battery life, which is still excellent.

The bracelet can be recommended to anyone who is not indifferent to the amount of movement. Besides, the owner of the bracelet gets information on the quality of sleep and other delightful features such as notificationalarm, and heart rate measurement.
