Xiaomi Mi Band 5 vs Amazfit Band 5 comparison: which one to buy?

When Xiaomi Mi Band 5 arrived on the market, we were partly disappointed due to the absence of the features that were promised to us. Let's talk about the possibility of detecting the SpO2 value, support for the Alexa voice assistant and the possibility of payments with NFC on the move, therefore directly from the wrist. If there are still no alternatives to the latter, for the other two functions the new Amazfit Band 5 comes into play, the new fitness tracker even smarter than the Xiaomi solution, but it really makes sense to buy and what are the differences with Lei Jun's company smart bracelet?

Visually the two wearables are identical, because on balance they are the same product, with the exception of some features. On the other hand, the manufacturing company is always Huami who has long decided to throw itself on the market on its own, taking advantage of the Amazfit branded product line up, which also boasts sportswear, a treadmill and TWS headphones. , of which you can find the review here. We are therefore talking about the same size and weight as well as finishes, which overall make both products very comfortable in wearability.

In reality an aesthetic difference is present and is represented by the touch button positioned at the bottom of the display. On Xiaomi Mi Band 5 the button is circular in shape while on Amazfit Band 5 the design is more similar to a small squashed ellipse. However, we refer you to the data sheet below for the summary differences of the two fitness trackers.

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, Amazfit Band 5 introduces Alexa support with respect to the Mi Band 5, with which to control for example home automation, or query the virtual assistant on weather as well as add items to your shopping list, set alarms etc .. But another important feature that we find on Huami's bracelet is the ability to monitor oxygen in the blood, ideal not only for a brief indication of the state of health but also ideal for all high-altitude sports.

It should also be specified that Xiaomi Mi Band 5 in the Chinese version integrates these features, so on balance Amazfit Band 5 is a fully functional global version of Xiaomi's wearable. Support for Alexa is made possible thanks to a small microphone integrated into the capsule. Functions that limit the autonomy, which drops to 20 days compared to the 25 promised by Mi Band 5, even if these data are net of superfluous and limited use of the wearable. The rest of the specifications and functionalities remain unchanged, so for example also on the Huami watch we find the monitoring of 11 sports, but the GPS is absent.

Of course, what changes is the price (in the table indicated the launch prices by the supplier), so to answer the question what should be bought, the answer is not so obvious. Personally, as much as I can consider the support for Alexa a real plus, on such a small display perhaps it finds little sense to exist. On the other hand we also find the SpO2 value, which we find only on high-end devices and which instead at a low price on this Amazfit Band 5 is functional. So if you are not interested in SpO2 and Alexa, the advice is to save those 10/15 euros of difference and maybe invest them in something else, otherwise go to Amazfit Band 5 with your eyes closed.

Hi, I have read some very bad reviews on Amazon about the amazfit band 5. How come all these problems with the official Zepp App and the metrics detection problems? I would like to buy it but am a little put off by the negative reviews

I also bought it on the Amazfit e-shop site (delivered in 24h) and to date I have no problems with the Zepp app, I come from the Honor Band 5 and personally at the moment I prefer this from Amazfit, it has more customizations depth and then features like music control (very important to me) and camera control also work on iPhone (I have a 6s). I had the pleasure of seeing that the charge of the band also appears on the iPhone Battery widget, therefore a significant plus. I think it's nice to use, with the touch button working...

I got it from the Amazfit official website and I've had it since Friday. I have not detected any problems so far with the Zepp app, which works and has a very similar appearance to Mi Fit.
