Another product that we want to take a look at from today’s event is the Redmi Band 2. As the name implies, it’s a fitness tracker. Plus, that’s not difficult to guess that we are dealing with a cost-effective model.
Redmi Band 2 highlights
The Redmi smartband uses a large 1.47-inch square screen. It not only has a 76% larger display area but also uses a 2.5D screen glass, a resolution of 172*320, 247PPI pixel density, and 450nit brightness.
The wristband weighs 14.9g and comes with an integrated TPU strap. The thickness of the main body is also 45% thinner than the previous generation, compressed to 9.99mm.
In order to meet the individual needs of consumers, the new fitness tracker’s strap has 6 colors, namely Dreamland White, Midnight Black, Sunny Blue, Retro Green, Vitality Pink, and Fluorescent Green. You can even choose a dial from over 100 available options.
It is worth mentioning that the Redmi Band 2 is more comprehensive than the previous generation in terms of health tracking. It comes with blood oxygen saturation detection, which is more convenient than finger-clip oximeter measurement. Plus, it supports 24-hour heart rate monitoring, all-day sleep monitoring, stress detection, women’s health monitoring, etc.
There are also many sports tracking modes. Unlike the first gen’s 5 sports modes, the Redmi Band 2 comes with 30+ sports modes, including 10 professional sports and 20 extended sports.
In addition, the smartband also has a 5ATM waterproof rating, which supports daily showers and water activities without taking it off.
The charging method of Redmi Band 2 is changed to a magnetic suction design. Agree that this is more convenient than the previous generation of integrated quick-release USB direct plug charging. You only need to put the bracelet on the charger to complete the charging. The bracelet has a built-in 210mAh battery, which provides 14 days of autonomy on a single charge.
The new fitness tracker also achieves the ultimate cost-effectiveness of the Redmi brand, priced at 169 yuan ($24).
