The Mi Band 5 made its debut a few weeks ago back in China and is set to make its Global debut pretty soon. I was able to get hold of the Chinese variant, but relax, it can display English on the band itself, you just need to set English on the language from the Mi Fit App.
This bad has added some extra features like the Monthly menstruation for women, stress level and a few more. These features sure gave the Mi Band a boost, but it added a little thickness compared to the Mi Band 4. After wearing it for a couple of days, well i dont feel that there was any added weight compared to the Mi Band 4 which I have already sported for months. The display was definitely 20% bigger and whats nice is that the charging port is now magnet base. You no longer need to remove your capsule everytime you charge, making your strap a lot more brittle.
Another good news is that you can carry over your Mi band 3/4 straps to the Mi Band 5, but not vice versa, since the Miband 5 capsule slot is roughly 2mm thicker compared to the Miband 4. Thats a major good news for people who will upgrade from Mi Band 3 or 4.
