Mi Bands have made a name for itself for its simplistic yet effective design. The Mi Band 5 looks pretty similar to the Mi Band 4; however, it comes with a bigger screen. Equipped with a 1.1-inch AMOLED display, the band has five brightness levels, which add a lot of usability in bright sunlight. The band is touch-based, and a 2.5D glass protects the screen.
There are over a hundred new watch faces themed on characters from popular animated series’ like Neon Genesis Evangelion, good ol’ Spongebob Squarepants, Case Closed, and even everybody’s favorite virtual popstar: Hatsune Miku. Wrist straps come in a variety of different colors as well. Users can go crazy by customizing their own unique smart band.

The Mi Band 5 reportedly comes with 40% better accuracy in sleep tracking compared to the Mi Band 4. With a brand new Sleep Monitor that tracks REM sleep levels and sporadic naps, users can now view their sleep cycles neatly on the Mi Fit App. The heart-rate monitor also comes with an upgrade. Irregular heart rate monitoring is 50% more accurate and the phone notifies the user when irregularly fast heartrate is noticed.
