Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is official; $15 device tracks your heart rate, quality of sleep and more

Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is official; $15 device tracks your heart rate, quality of sleep and more
The Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is now official. The follow up to the highly successful Xiaomi Mi Band, the sequel is priced at just $15. No, you do not get a screen, which means that you will be relying on the display of the smartphone you pair the device with. The Mi Band 1S will work with iOS and Android. It also sports an IP67 rating, which means it can be submerged in up to 3 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.

The Mi Band 1S will track your heart rate and the quality of your sleep. The wearable also counts the number of calories you've burned during exercise, and measures the number of steps you've taken. It unlocks your Xiaomi phone and vibrates to alert you that a notification has been sent to your handset.

Thanks to the unveiled Mi Band 1S, the original Mi Band is now just $11. By last Summer, Xiaomi had shipped more than 6 million units of the device. That was good enough for Xiaomi to be the second largest wearables manufacturer in the world at the time, according to IDC, with a 24.6% market share.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 1S measures 37mm x 13.6mm x 9.9 mm. It weighs 5.5 grams. The wearable will available to to be purchased starting on November 11th.


Thanks for the tip!

If they were putting a digital watch and timer on it would be a killer.
BTW does it work only with Xiaomi phone ?

It works with any phone/tablet. I have used it on Xiaomi phones, Huawei phones, iPhone and Meizu. Interestingly enough the only time I had problems was when paired with my Xiaomi devices :)

I think if you do sports and only need it as a fitness band it's really useful. I saw that on geekbuying.com they're already selling it.

The price is amazing, but it's kind of ugly. It's still in the running for me, I'm looking for a fitness tracker currently.

I used it with Nexus 5 and Note 2. It unlocks the phone and you'll get the notification vibration as well. Every Android phone has smart unlock option
