Xiaomi Smart Band 8 Price in Nepal, Features, Availability
Xiaomi has launched it’s latest Band 8 along with Xiaomi 13 Ultra and Pad 6 Series in China. It’s the newest addition to their already popular Band lineup and the successor to the last year’s Band 7. So, let’s find out more about the newly launched Xiaomi Smart Band 8 along with its expected price in Nepal.
Xiaomi Smart Band 8 Overview:
Design and Display
At a quick glance, the Band 8 doesn’t look that different from its predecessor, or every other Mi Band for that matter. That is, it retains the same pill-shaped design with detachable straps. But this time, Xioami is adding a few new ways how you can wear and use the band.
The Smart Band 8 arrives in five different straps, all unique in their own way. What’s more interesting is that the brand also decided to go with a two-piece band, breaking away from its traditional single-strap approach.
The company mostly highlighted its capability to wear it as a pendant around the neck. The necklace-style design is an interesting addition, giving users more options to wear the band as a fashion accessory. This time, you will also be able to put the band on your shoes. Xiaomi uses pegs to achieve this. It can monitor your regular running data along with 13 other professional data such as stride frequency, ground impact force, etc.
Talking about the display, it comes with the same 1.62-inch AMOLED display as its predecessor. This band comes with 5ATM Water-resistance that prevents it from water up to 50 meters.
Fitness / Health Tracking
Xiaomi’s latest wearable features a PPG heart rate sensor for continuous heart monitoring, and SpO2 level measurement – much like their previous band model. Additionally, it supports 150+ workout modes, 24/7 sleep tracking, and Female health tracking.
Rest of the secs
Xiaomi Band 8 is fueled by a 190mAh battery with fast charging support. In terms of connectivity, it features Bluetooth 5.1 connection. For pairing, one has to use the Xiaomi Sports Health app.
