Although, the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S looks similar to the previous version, the new model brings new features. The Mi Band 1S dimensions are 37mm x 13.6mm x 9.9 mm. The weight is 5.5 gr. New to the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is the optical HR sensor (heart rate), ‘hidden’ under the metallic case. In fact, the case is made from durable, scratch-resistant aluminium. The straps are this time made from thermoplastic elastomer made by Dow Corning. Conform to the manufacturer, TPSIV material is UV resistant, antibacterial and anti-allergic. It feels smooth and silky as the previous version felt a bit plasticky at times. Just like the previous model, the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S does not have a screen. You’ll need your smartphone connected to your bracelet in order to have access to your data. The new Mi Band 1S will connect via a low energy Bluetooth with both, iOS and Android phones. It also comes with the IP67 rating. The rating means that the bracelet is dust and water resistant. You can go for a shower and even a 30 min swim without the fear of damaging the tracker.
Like the previous model the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S will record the daily activities like distance, travelled, steps taken, burned, etc. This time, you can also share your fitness data with your friends via social media. Facebook, QQ, WhatsApp, Twitter, etc. are all compatible. One key feature ported from the previous model to the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S is the “unlock your phone” feature. It works like this. You grant once access to your bracelet from the app on your phone. Then, each time you get close enough to your phone the Mi Band 1S will unlock it for you. How nice is that?
