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.

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 review: You can hardly go wrong with this crazy-cheap step tracker

 

The Mi Band 2 manages to offer features normally found on more expensive fitness trackers at a fraction of the cost...but you get what you pay for.

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

 

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 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...

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...

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...

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.

  (Rating Hidden)

You won't see this fitness tracker in your local department store - in the UK, the Xiaomi MiBand 2 is only available online. It's cheap and has a built-in heart rate monitor, but is it worth seeking out this fitness tracker? We put it to the test to...

Xiaomi Mi Band 2 Review - FunkyKit

 

There's a plethora of fitness trackers out on the market, but none came even close to the bargain priced Xiaomi's Mi Band, when it launched in 2014 when it came down to bang for buck. Just a year after the release of the original Mi Band, Xiaomi...

Priced at just RMB149, the Mi Band 2 is within reach of just about everyone and will provide beginners to fitness trackers everything they will look for. Initial reservations of the shorter battery life of the Mi Band 2 over its predecessors were...

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...
