Xiaomi MI Band 5


The Xiaomi MI Band 5’s overall aesthetic has not evolved much compared to its predecessors. It still has a capsule with a colour display and a thermoplastic elastomer wristband with a loop buckle. It is said to have approximately 20% more display area than the Mi Smart Band 4, but that’s hardly noticeable. There’s a touch-sensitive button below the 1.1-inch (126×294 pixels) AMOLED touchscreen, which has a 16-bit colour range. This is a downgrade from the 24-bit colour range of the Mi Smart Band 4’s display. However, the peak brightness has increased from 400nits to 450nits.

The weight of the Mi Smart Band 5 is only 11.9g and it’s comfortable on the wrist. There also seems to be a coating for preventing fingerprint smudges. There are two contact pins at the back for the magnetic charger. The Mi Smart Band 5 feels premium in terms of build quality, and there was no loosening of the strap or buckle.

Mi Smart Band 5 interface and software

Xiaomi offers over 100 watch face options on the Mi Smart Band 5, sorted into categories such as workout, art, science and technology, business, fashion, and more. There are some great options to choose from, including animated ones, and this helps the otherwise bland display look quirky. You can get your Mi band 5 from Gadget Central at an affordable price.
