[Video Review] Xiaomi Mi Band + Support Notifications

After a few days of testing, I'm here to give you my impressions  on the first "wearable" product by Xiaomi, the MiBand.

MiBand is set in the Fit Band industry, or those wearable accessories specifically designed to monitor fitness activities, even as we will see, the Xiaomi product, although it does not have a display incorporating interesting features that make it appealing even for those who does not do much physical activity and certainly to lovers of technology gadgets.

As with all Xiaomi products, the quality of production is unquestionable. At a weight of just 13g we find a concentration of technology, style and functionality.

The MiBand consists of 2 elements:

The bracelet, made of silicone, is comfortable and lightweight. Closure allows a safe seal that is able to withstand even physical activity. Initially, it was possible to order only black color, but other official colors also appear. It is also possible to find matching bracelets like this that roughly equal to the original one.

The cap is made of polycarbonate on the base and aluminum on the top. Along the top we find three microled (blue, orange, green and red) that will provide us, along with the vibration, different feedback about the progress of the lens and battery charge and notifications.

MiBand XiaomiThere is a gesture similar to when you raise your wrist to check the time, which if performed correctly and decisively, will allow you to read the progress of the set goal directly on the display.: The first LED will flash if you are at 1/3 of the target, the first will become fixed and the second will flash if you are at 2/3 of the target, etc. In the event of a low battery, we will see the three LEDs flash red.

Always about the battery, we can only emphasize a strong point of this product. They are declared 30 days of duration and seconds my tests of these days can only confirm it.

Another note in favor of this product is definitely the IP67 certification which guarantees protection against dust and diving up to 1 meter!

Let me know the two most interesting features that we'll see in the app. We can set the phone so that if we wear the MiBand, this will unlock automatically without requiring any Pin. Although currently officially supported only by the Mi4, it is possible to achieve the same result with other apps (Trigger on the playstore or NoLockHome module of Xposed).

Another useful and interesting feature is the smart alarm clock. In practice, once an alarm clock is set, MiBand will monitor the 30 minutes ahead of you by anticipating the alarm if you think your sleep level is lighter, andthus arguing to wake you up in a more traumatic way during a heavy sleep phase. Of course this function is optional and you can also use the classic alarm clock. In both cases MiBand will try to wake you up through cadence vibrations that can be interrupted by touching the aluminum part. Very interesting is that the alarm is independent of the phone and that it will work even if it is off.

MiBand needs its dedicated application to interface and synchronize. The application can be downloaded through the QR code inside the box but on the official Italian forum you will always find a translated and updated version.

Specifically today I will show you an untranslated version but "modified" to allow MiBand to receive notifications from all apps. I leave you to download the 1.1.712 version (in English) with support for notifications from all the apps and the video in which we will take a look at this version of the app.
