The band contains the core tracker which is around 9 mm thick, and 36 mm in length. It is inserted into a TPSiV wristband, which is hypoallergenic and has anti-UV and anti-microbal properties. The tracker is inserted into the charger module, which can be connected to a 5.0 V external power source. It is also called "Xiaomi Fit"

Software compatibility[edit]

At the time of launch, the only way to use Mi Band was to use the Xiaomi's Mi Fit app.

Xiaomi Mi Band Pulse[edit]

Xiaomi announced the Mi Band 1S, or the Mi Band Pulse, the successor to the Mi Band, on 7 of November 2015.It is almost identical to its predecessor, with the addition of a heart rate sensor on the bottom of the band, making it slightly bulkier at 37 x 13.6 x 9.9mm. The addition of the heart beat sensor seems to decrease battery endurance, claimed to be 30 days of use from one charge. In reality battery dies by 15 days. Heart rate on the 1S is measured on demand, it does not offer continuous monitoring.

Further models followed, with the Mi Band 4 current as of May 2020.[1] An app named "Mi Fit", by the manufacturer of the Xiaomi fitness tracking wrist band, is available on the Google Play Store.[2]
