Xiaomi MiBand 1S bracelet. Experience of use

    I got such a bracelet in April. I bought for the following functions:

    1. Pedometer.
    2. A “smart alarm clock” that tracks sleep phases and wakes up in REM sleep, which will be easier for the body.
    3. Heart rate monitoring.


    So, what can be said for six months of operation.

    In fact, the functions were performed so-so.

    1. The pedometer is lying. He considers steps, but also considers a trip by car along a rough road, considers work as a hand tool, etc. These two photos I showed to the seller on Aliexpress, where I ordered this bracelet. And then: Thus, I got behind the wheel, drove 14 kilometers, and the pedometer counted a hundred steps. The seller did not particularly argue. I offered to return the bracelet to him at my expense and return the money. I didn’t want to bother with the mail, so I suggested a partial return and left the bracelet myself (besides, a slight scratch appeared on it). I got $ 8 back, so he ended up costing me in the end for 10 bucks.

    Then I checked on a long distance, drove to Chelyabinsk, a pedometer counted 2,000 steps for 232 kilometers while I was driving. Apparently quite bad to Chelyabinsk road.

    2. "Smart alarm clock." I can’t say anything about this function, because it was stupidly removed from an iOS application. I read that in the android versions this function remains, but I do not have an android.

    Perhaps he was not that smart, this alarm clock.

    He tracks sleep phases, as well as the time of awakening counts. When the son wakes up at night and I go to tell him a fairy tale, the bracelet in the statistics then puts in how much time I was wandering around the apartment.

    Bottom line - data about sleep. Dark areas - fast sleep, light - deep. Or vice versa.

    So I use it as a normal alarm clock, which wakes up very delicately, by vibration on the wrist, and not screaming with a phone at the other end of the room, while you are breaking legs, fingers and coffee tables to get to it.

    Also keeps statistics. It is rather sad to see that in August, as in the other months, on average, I sleep a little less than 6 hours. Although he somehow failed and two weeks of statistics disappeared somewhere stupidly. And also, if such a surprise happens as a dream in the afternoon, the bracelet simply ignores it. 3. Heart rate monitoring. It works, but only when you click the button in the application, which is inconvenient. Or, as I read, in running mode. But I do not run. And still the bracelet lives on the battery for a very long time. Charged 48 days ago, there are three percent. Pros:

    1. Steps measure. Upon reaching a specified number of steps encouraging vibrates.
    2. Delicately wake up at the right time by vibration on the wrist.
    3. Lives long on battery.
    4. Inexpensive.
    5. IP67 - you can wash and swim.

    1. Pedometer is lying.
    2. The “smart alarm clock” function, which you often read about in reviews, does not work in an iOS application.
    3. There is no official application for Windows Phone (I have a mobile phone from Microsoft). Third-party application in the Store well, just none.
    4. Once lost all accumulated data.
    5. Due to the fact that it takes a battery for a long time, there is a risk of shoving non-standard charging somewhere so far that you have to search for a long time.
    6. Sleep statistics are incomplete.
    7. Raw and meager application on iOS.

    Summary - an inexpensive toy with the function of the pedometer and alarm clock.

    The new version of Band 2 with a screen costs about 30 dollars. Not sure what makes sense in the purchase.
