Xiaomi Smart Band 8 Pro
Xiaomi‘s Smart Band fitness trackers have long stood out for their cheap price tags, but the company has upped the ante in recent years with its Pro line of Smart Band models.
Now, the manufacturer has announced the Smart Band 8 Pro, picking up where last year’s Smart Band 7 Pro left off. You’re looking at a similar design here, albeit with a slightly larger OLED screen (1.74 inches versus 1.64 inches). You also still have a metal-coated frame, 5ATM rating, and quick-release straps on the new model.
Xiaomi has brought some new features to the table to make use of the larger display, such as a variety of widgets (e.g. tracking, payments, media playback), an improved UI, and new watch faces and wallpapers.
The Smart Band 8 Pro also brings a larger battery (289mAh versus 235mAh). Xiaomi claims that the new tracker can therefore last for up to two weeks, or up to six days with the always-on display enabled.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a fitness tracker without health and fitness features. Fortunately, the new wearable brings features like integrated GPS, over 150 sports modes, the ability to view a replay of your activity overlaid onto a map (e.g. a run), warmup and stretching guidance, and more.
Other notable features include heart rate tracking, SpO2 monitoring, sleep/stress tracking, NFC, and smartphone integration.
