We are sure that there are lots of guys out there, who were looking forward for the new generation Mi band. The cheapest smart wearable made by a top company, such as Xiaomi, made lots of fans last year and the new Xiaomi Mi band 1s was one of the most anticipated products, when looking back last month.

The original Mi band put really high standards for a wearable $20 device. Xiaomi took pretty smart way with their second generation band. They added just one extra feature to the close to perfect hardware combination – a heart rate sensor. All other features and specifications remained the same, just like the ones on the original Mi band.
We spent a few weeks with the Xiaomi Mi band 1s and put our thoughts in this review.
Xiaomi Mi band 1s desing and build quality
The only visual difference between the original Mi band and the new 1s is the heart rate sensor, which is placed at the bottom of the aluminium corpus. Also keep in mind that, if you are used to the colorful led lights on the first generation band, then you should know that Mi band 1s comes only with white notification lights.
We like the simplistic design of Mi band 1s and we are glad that Xiaomi didn’t try to make any changes here. The aluminium body seems hard to scratch, which we are glad for. The rubber band is also weathered and scratch proof.
