The most costly Mi Band to date, the Mi 'Shrewd' Band 4 stays a cut at an unfathomable £34.99. At a large portion of the cost of the least expensive Fitbit it holds its long battery life and includes rest following, pulse observing and different movement modes that incorporate swim-following - incomprehensible at this value point.

Despite the fact that the name suggests generally this is in actuality the fifth Mi Band to dispatch, yet just the second in the UK. We've pursued this Chinese organization's advancement since the good 'ol days, when the first Mi Band propelled as a fundamental rest and wellness tracker with champion battery life and an around £20 sticker price. Mi Band 1S included a pulse sensor, Mi Band 2 an OLED board with fundamental notices, and Mi Band 3 legitimate waterproofing, a bigger showcase and improved notice support.

Presently in its fifth era Mi Band 4 replaces the 0.78in OLED board for a 0.95in shading AMOLED screen with 120x240 goals, making it 40% bigger yet at the same time amazingly light at simply 22g. This presentation is customisable - to a certain extent - with 77 watch faces accessible to download, and it's anything but difficult to switch between any recently chosen assemblages straight from the band itself.

Seemingly all the more energizing at this cost is its 5ATM waterproofing and six-hub accelerometer, enabling it to screen different exercises including open air running, treadmill, cycling, strolling, general exercise and swimming, and you can label any conduct that doesn't fall into these classifications. For swimming it can recognize strokes and will quantify separation, calories consumed, number of strokes and stroke rate, and uses a SWOLF (Swim Golf) score to examine execution.

It holds the pulse screen presented in Mi Band 1S, however is currently ready to build the recurrence of estimations when it distinguishes movement, and you can indicate how every now and again this ought to happen at different occasions. In case you're worried about overcompensating things you can likewise set an alarm an incentive for your pulse, and should you hit that incentive without movement being distinguished it will detect something isn't right and vibrate.

This pulse sensor is additionally valuable for all the more precisely checking rest, and Mi Band 4 can gauge your all out rest time and separate among light-and profound rest. It will record these outcomes after some time to show designs, contrast your information and different clients, and give suggestions on improving night's rest.

One of the key selling purposes of Mi Band has consistently been its long battery life, and however it presently has a bigger shading screen, Xiaomi claims it can even now last as long as 20 days relying upon your utilization. In our very own tests we overcame 60% of the battery in seven days, however we are substantial clients and get a high volume of warnings with upwards of 1,000 Slack messages, about a similar number of messages, and that is before you think about some other notices.

Where to purchase Mi Band 4 

Xiaomi has now made Mi Band 4 accessible in the UK, where the official retail cost is £34.99 when purchased direct from the Mi Store. That is just £8 more costly than £26.99 Mi Band 3, which is as yet accessible from outlets, for example, Amazon at a marginally marked down cost.

At its Chinese dispatch Xiaomi likewise referenced a NFC-prepared model that supports versatile installments, however this adaptation isn't accessible in the UK. In any event not yet.

Mi Band 4 being used 


The Mi Band is a wellness band instead of a smartwatch, however there is some hybrid. On its new 0.95in shading show you can see initially the time and date (alongside number of steps and pulse), basically by lifting your wrist or tapping the capacitive catch beneath the screen. That activity never again feels as constrained as it once did.

For more data you can likewise check the Status menu, which also reveals overall steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and idle alerts.

This is a very good AMOLED panel, offering excellent contrast and vibrant colours, and it helps to make this affordable fitness tracker look like a premium model. By default it's set to only around 50% brightness to preserve battery power, but ramping this up to the full 450 nits will make it easily viewable in all lighting conditions. It's not as prone to fingerprints as Mi Band has been in the past, and any that do linger are quickly and easily wiped away.
You can also use Mi Band 4 to set alarms and timers or as a stopwatch, check the weather forecast, play music and view notifications (up to three pages). The latter has improved significantly since the early days of Mi Bands with displays, but even so the screen really is too narrow to replace a smartwatch or your phone in this regard - as it should be, since a fitness tracker should be unobtrusive in design.

Many of the options are available from the device itself, but you will want to use the Mi Fit companion app to see data over time and access additional settings such as setting activity goals, configuring idle alerts and controlling which apps are able to bug you on your fitness tracker. You'll also want to use the app to set up Bluetooth unlock, though a screen lock option is available from the tracker itself, and it's also here you'll find a range of band display designs to choose from.
Mi Fit can be synched with Google Fit and WeChat, and a Friends option in the Settings allows you to share performance with other Mi Fit users. 
The new Mi Band could not be easier to use, with firmware updates and synching all happening simply with you launching the app and holding the tracker nearby. Almost everything else happens automatically without you prompting it, and the tracker can be as annoying or as chilled out as you want it to be in terms of alerts and notifications. 

Mi Band 4 Conclusions

At this price the new Mi Band from Xiaomi is unbeatable. Packed with activity-, health- and sleep-tracking functionality, Mi Band 4 now looks the part too with its colourful AMOLED screen
