Personal experience using the Xiaomi Mi Band 4

How much is the price? 

So far, this is the best budget smart band for 2019. The fact that its screen is AMOLED with a price of 139 dirhams or $38. You couldn't find anywhere in the market with such a competitive product. 

Small beast yet powerful features in one...

If you are a health-conscious person and have an active lifestyle, I highly recommend this product. I've been using the product for a month and I even wear it at night to monitor my sleep cycle. The battery lasts up to a month for a single charge and it can take 2 hours to complete the charging cycle. 

One of my favorite features as well is...

The vibrating feature is very helpful as it makes me awake on time, especially in the morning.
My circadian rhythm changes from time to time as my scheduled rota at work varies and Xiaomi Mi Band 4 helps me to monitor my sleeping cycle.

Here's a screenshot of my sleeping cycle via the MI APP.

Other than that, my favorite feature among the 15 features of the band is the steps. You can set daily steps for a day and once you have reached that goal, the smart band will vibrate and you can see the stats and achievements as well in the MI BAND APP.

And of course, It can check your bits per minute of your heart rate. 

Notifications to keep you updated every time...

Xiaomi Mi Band 4 has an extra feature to let you know that a specific app is active. Once an application receives a notification from your phone, it auto synchronizes to the band and you will get all the information right away from your smart band 4 with a vibration. The smart band is connected via Bluetooth and does not need any mobile data at all. Pretty convenient.   However, It doesn't have a built-in GPS, rather it relies only on the GPS of your mobile device.


The powerful AMOLED DISPLAY is very impressive in the fact that most AMOLED smart bands are only available on higher-end smart band watches  (and it's pretty expensive). But don't underestimate the power of the smart band 4. 

You can read the information on the smart band's face during the broad daylight. Thanks to the AMOLED.  The smart band's face is customizable as well.

Here, you can see the picture of Mitsuo (my dog)

So that's it for now. I hope I was able to help you decide if you are planning to buy a smart band and invest for a long time.

If you are searching for a budget smart band. This is the best smart band in the market at the moment.
Just don't expect a GPS built-in, As it relies only on the GPS of your device.

Other than that, It's the best budget smart band for 2019.

Thanks for reading my quick review.

And see you again on my next blog :)
