We tested the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 and here we tell you …


The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 is the new edition of the bracelet of the Chinese brand that has been giving such good results since the first edition was launched there in 2014, and due to its characteristics, new features compared to previous generations, and quality ratio. price, it is positioned as one of the best smart bracelets to buy in 2020.

And is that each new edition of this bracelet, continues to work just as well in sales, since it perfectly combines two very important concepts for any buyer, such as good quality and a very competitive price, attributes with which it seeks to stand up to the HONOR Band 5 that we tested here a while ago.

It has differences with respect to the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 but it is not revolutionary in every way, although it does keep something intact. Its price is still its main claim, much cheaper than another such as the FitBit Charge 4.

Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5: Design and screen

The Xiaomi mi smart band 5 includes a climate monitor

As I mentioned above the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 it is very similar to the previous version, with some small difference.

Its dimensions are 47.2 x 18.5 x 12.4 mm with a weight of 11.9 grams for the standard model and 12.1 grams for the version with the NFC chip.

We have a good number of straps available in various colors, some in two tones and there are even bracelets that go with some smartfaces of the bracelet itself, which by the way there are more than 100 at the service of the user.

The screen is larger in the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5, since your panel OLED grows to 1.1 inches with a resolution of 126 x 294 pixels.

The touch screen is 20% larger than in the previous generation and it shows, in addition to that this screen reaches up to 450 nits of brightness (400 on the Mi Band 4). In this bracelet we also have a button below the screen itself that helps us wake up the device or return to the previous screen if we are in any of the menus.

It is clear that this screen is better than the previous generation, not only because it is larger but because it appears of more visual, tactile and transition quality.


The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 comes with Bluetooth 5.0, 16 MB of internal storage and 512 KB of RAM.

These numbers do not suggest the potential of this bracelet, since everything in it works like a charm, without the need for more internal power. You cannot put songs inside it, for example, which forces you to always have your smartphone connected to the bracelet for a good number of tasks.
