Which Xiaomi smartwatch or fitness band is best for you?

Published Oct 25, 2023


Wearable smart devices have become just as much a part of daily life, as a smartphone for many - more so for gym fanatics and fitness enthusiasts.

Whether it's tracking one’s daily 10000 steps goal, sleep patterns, heart rate, or more intensive analysis of workouts - the common thread among such products is push notifications to the smartwatch or tracker and even some operation of a smartphone, without needing to take it out of your pocket, consistently.

While local shelves may seem saturated with such products promising elite fitness tracking, many fall short on compatibility with your smartphone and general operation. Despite this, Xiaomi’s range of new wearables offers peace of mind for a robust fitness tracker that integrates seamlessly into daily life, regardless of the smartphone you’re using - through the Mi Fitness app.

When choosing the best Xiaomi smartwatch or fitness band for you, there are a few key points to consider. The first thing to look at when choosing your device is your lifestyle. Do you need something that can handle intense workouts and track your activity levels? Or are you just looking for something to monitor sleep and show notifications?

If you'’re looking for a more advanced smartwatch or fitness band, you should also consider the features available. Do you need GPS tracking or a heart rate monitor? Or maybe you want a device that has a built-in microphone or speakers so you can take calls or listen to music.

Once you'’ve determined what features you need and the compatibility of the device, you can narrow down your choices to the Xiaomi smartwatches and fitness bands that best suit your lifestyle. Despite this, we’ve gone a step ahead and delved a little deeper into the new Xiaomi wearable stable, to help make your choice easier:
