If you have a confusion regarding whether this band would trace your heartbeat or not, then just don’t think much as it has a high precision 6-axis sensor and also a PPG heart-rate sensor


To resolve the issue of charging, Xioami came up with the idea of what we call Magnetic Charging. It takes 2 hours or even less to charge your band, and you are free for at least 14 days.
