Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi announced its first Redmi Band fitness tracker at the 10th anniversary Xiaomi Mi Fan Festival in China. The device offers users a colour display and comes in four different strap colours. One aspect in which the Redmi Band differs from the Mi Band is that its main body and wrist band cannot be separated. Since it is a health-centric device, it comes with some important fitness tracking features. The Redmi Band is the cheapest fitness band from the Chinese firm.
Redmi Band specifications and features
The Redmi Band comes with a 1.08-inch rectangular display which is slightly larger than the 0.95-inch screen found on the Xiaomi Mi Band 4. The Redmi Band offers users up to 72 watch screens. The device comes in four strap colour choices such as black, blue, orange and olive green.
Like the Realme Band, the newly introduced Redmi Band features a built-in USB charging port, which can be accessed by unplugging the strap. Hence, it can be charged by connecting it to laptop or through a charging adapter. The exact size of its battery is not known, but what has been revealed is that it can last for up to 14 days once charged completely.
The Redmi Band is equipped with an optical heart rate sensor. Other fitness-focused features of the Redmi Band are sleeping monitoring, sedentary reminder and it supports five mode like outdoor running, treadmill, walking, cycling and free activities.

The Redmi Band has arrived in China with an irresistible price tag of RMB 99.9 (~Rs. 1,070). The Chinese firm will start with fundraising of the Redmi Band through Xiaomi Mall starting from April 9th with a price tag of RMB 95 (~Rs 1,017). There is no word on the availability of the Redmi Band outside of the home market.
