Redmi Band Overview
Design & Display
Redmi Band is another typical band that looks similar to the likes of Realme Band. It comes with a TPU wrist strap and a polycarbonate body with 5ATM water resistance. So, it is water-resistant up to 50m of water for 10 minutes.
It is very lightweight at just 13g and has 4 different strap colors: Black, Blue, Orange, and Green. The main body has a PPG optical heart rate sensor so it can monitor your heartbeat 24/7.
The Redmi band has a 1.08-inch rectangular screen with touch controls. It is a TFT LCD color screen with a resolution of 120 x 200 pixels. You can customize the Redmi Band with 50+ watch faces.
Battery & Charging
Redmi Band has a 100 mAh battery and Redmi claims stand by time of 14 hours.
As for charging you can pop-off the wrist straps and plug it into the USB slot of your laptop.
I’ve already mentioned that it has a PPG heart rate sensor for 24/7 heart rate monitoring. Along with that, it has a step counter. For workouts, it has an outdoor run, treadmill, cycling, outdoor walk, and freestyle.
Redmi Band also has music control so that you can control the music on your phone. It can show notifications from your phone and silence/reject calls as well. But, you cannot use it to pick up calls as it doesn’t have a speaker or a mic. It can also monitor your sleep cycles and the data can be accessed via the Xiaomi wear app.
Redmi Band Price in Nepal and Availability
Redmi Band price in India is INR 1599 which is approx 2556 NPR. So, the Redmi Band price in Nepal will be around Rs. 2800 if it launches in Nepal.
Redmi Band is a starter fitness band with minimal fitness features. It can do step tracking and 24/7 heart rate monitoring but it’s not a total fitness tracker if you are serious about tracking your workouts. Besides, it can show notifications and control music. So, it’s a really basic fitness band for those who would like to be more active and track their step count.
