It seems the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 (or the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4, depending on your location) is shaping up to be the most successful fitness band from the company yet.
Check out the tweet for yourself below:
Sharing some great news with our global Mi Fans. 😎Our #MiSmartBand4 global shipment volumes crossed 1M units after just 8 days. This is the fastest we’ve reached this milestone in the history of #MiBand. 🚀🚀— Donovan Sung (@donovansung) June 24, 2019
Although the comments underneath this tweet are mostly positive and congratulatory, there are quite a few people lamenting that the Mi Band 4 hasn’t yet landed in India. The Xiaomi brand is huge in that country, where it is the number one smartphone manufacturer — even larger than Samsung, Huawei, and Apple. Why the Mi Band 4 isn’t there yet is a curious mystery, although it will likely arrive soon.
The Mi Band series brings many of the features people want in a fitness tracker at an incredibly cheap price point. Ths Mi Band 4 has a full-color, AMOLED touchscreen display, 5ATM water resistance, Bluetooth 5.0, a six-axis sensor, AI assistant functionality (via Xiaomi’s Xiao AI assistant), and a heart-rate monitor.
The standard version packs a 135mAh battery that should last for up to 20 days of battery life. This version lacks NFC capability, while the Mi Band 4 with NFC uses a 125mAh battery that delivers up to 15 days of power.
The Mi Band 4 starts at $41.99 at GearBest if you want one in the U.S. The Chinese pricing for the device is 169 yuan (~$24) for the standard model and 229 yuan (~$33) for the Mi Band 4 NFC.
