Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Unveiled With A Heart-rate Sensor For Less Than $16By cheatmaster 09:01 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments
Xiaomi's long-awaited and oft-leaked update to the popular Mi Band has been officially revealed. The recent Mi Band 1S adds an vital feature, missing in the predecessor, and that's a heart-rate monitor.
Making for a more complete activity tracker, the optical heart-rate sensor adds to the already available step counter and sleep monitor. Existing features like vibrating/LED notifications have been retained, naturally. The Mi Band 1S will also still be able to unlock your phone when within range, while others will be prompted for a password.
Measuring a slightly different 37 x 13.6 x 9.9mm, the Mi Band 1S may not fit in the existing bracelets, if you've piled up different colors from the recent version (36 x 14 x 9mm). The recent model also weighs a half a gram more than the 5.0 of the Mi Band. An IP67 rating for dust and water protection has been kept too.

The same 45mAh battery is inside the 1S, and while the previous model carried a 30-day endurance promise, we imagine the heart-rate sensor will hold a significant toll on it, if used often enough.
The Mi Band 1S will be available in China starting November 11 for a price of CNY99, or just short of $16. The two models will be srecent simultaneously, the original Mi Band priced at CNY 69 ($11).
