Xiaomi Band 8 launched in April, and since then, it is waiting for its first firmware update. Now it has received its first software with some new additions along with other improvements. The firmware version 1.3.176 has been assigned to the smart band which can be seen with some new features. The new notable changes here are its Frisbee motion algorithm and motion-sensing game with vibration feedback. Gaming is the new topic to fitness trackers and it is just the start of it.
On the Mi Band 8, you can find some casual games to enjoy in your free time. It is the same experience that you can get on smartwatches. Xiaomi is trying to fill the library with new playable games on such a tiny screen. Any new games are welcome here as there are no more choices for different varieties of games.
Two new watch faces – Smash Peace and Fist Challenge have been added to the library. Both dials will offer customizable services, and you can set them with always-on display support. Smart Do Not Disturb mode has been reactivated in the new version. It is part of every Mi Band since Mi Band 5 and reintroduced on the new tracker.
The Chinese users have access to their city card to the new cities. With the help of the NFC feature, they can grant access to the bus and subways in supported cities. The new software version 1.3.176 is live in China, and users can install using a paired app. The global users are next in line to get the update.
