Xiaomi Mi Band 5: Alexa on a connected bracelet!

Xiaomi is undoubtedly the rising Chinese brand. With a series of new products of all kinds, the company continues to innovate and offer high-performance products to as many people as possible at prices that often defy all competition. With a powerful ecosystem, Xiaomi Home, and multiple collaborations with brands like Aqara or Roborock, the company never ceases to be talked about with respectful marketing. But if the Xiaomi home automation remains one of the most affordable and easy to set up, it still fishes for voice assistance in Europe, which is why the firm has clearly chosen to trust Amazon integrating Alexa to his new connected bracelet Xiaomi Mi Band 5… Warning : leak inside !

Once again it is the xiaomi official forum that leaks information: the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 would be about to happen. If the Spanish site AndroidTR had already discussed his technical characteristics by locating its FCC certification (XMSH11HM), we learn today that the connected bracelet - which already appears in the Amazfit application - would allow women to follow their menstrual cycle, but also everyone to control their blood oxygen saturation and, above all, to appeal to Amazon Alexa !

Admittedly, the assistant ofAmazon is still struggling to find a place on Android devices due to the forcing of the Mountain View firm which requires us to use Google Assistant even though it is far from being the most effective in automation… Like Samsung with its very nonexistent Bixby, Alexa must therefore break down the doors to exist outside its ecosystem, but fortunately Xiaomi seems to have fully realized its full potential ...

A connected bracelet full of features

In all likelihood, the next connected bracelet should offer a touch screen 1,2 inch AMOLED (against a 0,95 inch screen on the Xiaomi Mi Band 4) with a resolution of 360 x 180 px., with better contrast and more brightness, integrated GPS and an NFC chip.

An NFC chip that should offer a valuable service in these times of health crisis: the contactless payment via Google Pay or the Mi Pay platform. Compatible with the application Xiaomi Mi Fit, we already dream of being able to follow our physical activities thanks to its 6 training modes (treadmill, exercises, jogging, cycling, walking and swimming), its pedometer, its heart rate monitor, and its very probable oximeter.

Moreover, like its predecessors, the Mi Band 5 will be able to analyze your periods of sleep, deep and light, helping you improve your habits and optimize your sleep.

  • Touchscreen : 1,2 inch with 2.5 D glass
  • Resolution: 360 x 180 px
  • Voice assistant: Amazon Alexa
  • Sensors: 6 axis
  • Integrated GPS: does not require that of smartphone
  • NFC: contactless payments via Mi Pay and Google Pay
  • Autonomy: 20 days
  • features: monitoring heart rate, blood oxygen saturation SpO2, ovulation and sleep

Xiaomi Mi Band 5: price and availability

Beyond these characteristics, we do not yet know when the new Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will be launched. But, according to our information and taking into account the seniority of the previous generation, its release date would be imminent ! Alexians will obviously not fail to test in detail this connected bracelet very focused on fitness, but which can also satisfy all users ofAlexa at a price that promises to be more than reasonable, previous versions negotiating around € 30.

Fascinated by Alexa since the day I received it in beta test, I gradually became passionate about the subject, before deciding to go further by creating a site with Jean-Christophe. An activity that allows me to quench my thirst for new technologies and share my discoveries about the nicest of communities: Les Alexiens.
