Mi Band 5 has finally launched in Europe with the name Mi Smart Band 5 global version. Though some lucky customers have received the units from selected online retailers, it is the official launch. Mi Smart Band 5 is still missing the NFC version that we always saw on the Chinese version, but opted-out from the international model. Recently, Xiaomi has introduced the NFC version of Mi Smart Band 4 in Russia, so in the coming months, we could see the NFC version. There is also chatter that the Mi Smart Band 5 Pro will get the NFC function.
Amazon Alexa is the other feature that is not on the fitness tracker. In the major function, it gets the women’s health tool. It is a good strategy from Xioami to grab more women users to the tracker. Also, Mi Band 5 is the lowest priced smart band that offers the Menstrual Cycle measurement tool. The new five activities will surely help you in the daily workout sessions. Along with it, you can measure the results of the workout and its impact on your body with the PAI matrix, inherited from Amazfit GTR & GTS watches.
The increased 1.1-inch screen will show more details on the main display. The magnetic charging on the fifth-gen band is so easy that you don’t need to remove the strap. The heart rate monitoring is 50% more accurate and the sleep can track REM & naps. It guides you in breathing exercises & detects the stress level. In Europe, Mi Smart Band 5 is available for €40 or $45 from the official Xiaomi website.
