Xiaomi shipped 1 million Mi Band fitness trackers in 3 months
Xiaomi announced its first fitness tracker - the Mi Band - in July, and started selling it in August. Now the company revealed that it shipped more than 1 million Mi Band units in three months since launch - and that’s certainly impressive.

At the moment, the Mi Band is available only in China, but Xiaomi will release it in other markets (just like it did with its smartphones). The wearable device costs only $12.8 (79 CNY), and yet it has most of the features that more expensive products are offering, including sleep monitoring, accelerometer, and a battery that can last up to 30 days. The Mi Band can be connected to your phone via Bluetooth, it’s water-resistant, and can act as an alarm clock.

Xiaomi says that the highest number of Mi Bands it shipped in a single day was 100,000. Reportedly, the bands sold until now have already counted more than 80 billion steps - so people are definitely using them.

All in all, it seems that Xiaomi is on track to becoming an important player in the wearable industry, besides being one of the world's top smartphone vendors.

Wait what?! They knew user number of steps? I know it might be that not big deal, but those data could come with location tracking too. So much for anonymity.

I got my Mi Band from here in mushtato Australia
This is my second week using week. To be honest, the battery life is amazing, came in the box 33% charged, used 2weeks still going.
in terms of features, it's pretty basic. Steps, sleeps, and alarm. Hope xiaomi will gradually add more functions.
