Xiaomi's fitness band to launch August 18th, priced at $13
Xiaomi is known for offering value-priced smartphones and tablets. Now, it is adding a fitness band to the mix. Priced at 79 yuan ($13 USD), the Xiaomi Mi Band is expected to launch on August 18th. With IP67 certification protecting it from the elements, the Xiaomi Mi Band will give you enough juice to offer you 30 days of standby power.

This way, the Xiaomi Mi Band will have enough energy to handle all of the features that you bought the device for. That includes sounding an alarm when you have overslept, and teaching you the best ways to run and walk for maximum results while exercising. Thanks to the Mi Band's ability to live through a submersion to as deep as 1 meter, you can even track your swimming motions.

You can connect the Xiaomi Mi Band to your Xiaomi phone by using Bluetooth. And the fitness band can also be of use to you in unlocking your handset.

The Xiaomi Mi Band gives you all of the features from more expensive fitness bands

"Feeling a bit bad for fitbit however."

Why? Fitbit made a toxic band and charged high prices for it. What a joke.

These are finally cheap enough that I can buy one and put it on the neighborhood wild dog. That should give my insurance company some good data.

Awesome. Buy a fitness band, and get real-time feedback from a Red Army trainer. Hard to beat that. "You only took 8,000 steps today, fat Westerner. Do 7,000 more!"

I'd buy it if I can use it as stand alone watch and alarm.

Are these things rechargeable or meant to be replaced after 30 days. 13 bucks is incredibly cheap and no where in the article does it mention how they will recharge.

Do you seriously think they can't be recharged and must be disposed after 30 days? Of course it's rechargeable.

They're not lenses that we need to dispose. They're rechargeable :)
