Xiaomi Mi Band 2 With Oled Display, Heart Rate Sensor Launched

Xiaomi has unveiled its second-generation Mi Band 2 in China. It is available in black color with colorful wrist bands in black, blue, green, orange and other colors and is priced at 149 yuan ($22 / Rs. 1520 approx.). It is now available for order through in China and will go on sale starting from June 7th. No word on global roll out yet.

The new Mi Band 2, similar to other existing wearable devices in the market, focuses on user's health by helping them track their fitness and sleeping routine. The new band features Bluetooth wireless connectivity to pair with smartphones. Much like the original Mi Band, the new band vibrates to alert users about incoming calls, alarms, and notifications.

One of the biggest additions to the new Mi Band 2 is the 0.42-inch OLED display which will show time, steps taken, and heart rate count among others. Another notable addition is the PPG (photoplethysmography) sensor as a heart rate monitor. The new Mi Band 2 packs a 70mAh battery which the company claims up to 20 days of standby time. The first generation Mi Band which featured no display had a battery life of up to 30 days.
