Blue technology learned that millet smart Band 4C will be launched in Malaysia. The new fitness tracker claims to offer 14 days of battery life, a 1.08 inch screen, a heart rate monitor and an affordable price tag.
Although Xiaomi launched the latest version of its flagship fitness wearable device, MI band 5, in early June, their latest product is considered a cheap variant of MI band 4 with some useful features. As mentioned above, Xiaomi’s new activity tracker is currently only available in Malaysia and there is no detailed information on when it will enter other markets.
Mi smart band 4C is currently listed on shopee, an online retailer in Malaysia, for Myr 99 (about 163 RMB). As mentioned earlier, there is no detailed information on when the tracker will enter India and other countries. Mi band 4 was launched in India in September last year at a price of 2299 rupees (about 215 RMB).
Powered by a 130mah battery, the MI smart band 4C is said to last nearly two weeks after full charge. With the built-in USB port, the Band can be charged in about two hours. It also comes with a 1.08 inch TFT display with a resolution of 128x220px. In addition to its powerful heart rate monitor, which constantly monitors your pulse, the MI smart band 4C has other convenient features, such as receiving notifications and call reminders, and allowing users to control their music.
Loyal to the fitness position, the MI smart band 4C tracks five different sports, including fast walking, treadmill running, outdoor running, cycling and regular exercise. It also sends alerts if the user is idle for a long time. Xiaomi wearable device is designed to be waterproof up to 5atm, suitable for rain and even swimming. But for extreme water sports or sea diving, it may not help much.
Although the official global price tag for MI band 5 has not been published, the price for non NFC models is 189 yuan (USD $27) (about 2000 Rupees), while the price of NFC version is 229 yuan (USD $33) (about 2500 Rupees). Neither Mi smart band 4C nor Mi band 5 has been purchased in India.
