Xiaomi teaser hints at unveiling tomorrow for the Mi Band 1S
Xiaomi has shipped over 6 million units of the first-generation model. Thanks to the cheap price of the Mi Band ($12 USD), Xiaomi was the second largest shipper of wearable devices for the first quarter with 24.6% of the market.
The Mi Band measures your sleep and tracks your health and workouts. It can also wake up your Xiaomi smartphone. Since it doesn't have a display, you will need to rely on a paired Android handset to actually view the data being recorded by the device. Without a display to power, the Mi Band runs for 30 days between charges. The only rumored change with the Mi Band 1S is the addition of NFC connectivity which would add a number of new capabilities for the wearable.
Don't forget that tomorrow is the first anniversary of Xiaomi's landing in India and we expect the company to make some special announcements, including the unveiling of a 32GB Xiaomi Mi 4i handset.
