      The way you compare it to mi band 4 and then state it is not accurate is just ignorant. Mi band 5 itself claims it comes with better (more accurate heart rate sensor), which would obviously result in better (more accurate) measures than mi band 4. Maybe it is more helpful to compare the measuring to a more established/recognized device, e.g. fitbit, samsung watch/tracker, etc. would give more meaningful and fare insight into its capability.

          "Sleep tracking is a neat little feature, as well as heart rate or the stress meter, but they shouldn't be replacements for professional help if you have health issues."

                Poor design of belt, cant believe they still continuing with it! I know atleast 3 people who have lost their band.

                  How to record sleep data? And which is the best app to use with Mi Band?

                    I have heart problems. Maybe this watch will be helpful for me with that.

                      YRDN, 20 Aug 2020No, it does not. It relies on raise to watch.Wished it had it even if it reduced battery life to half which will still be better than smartwatches.
                      Thanks for replying & have a good day

                            Does it have an always on option? A watch needs to show the time anytime without needing to touch or shake it

                              Anonymous, 19 Aug 2020So, what's the benefit if the measurements are not cor... moreI would say the measurements are not as precise as a €300 device. If I make 10 000 steps a day and the band records +/- 100, so what? If the margin of an error is small than its an amazing device for the price. And it shows time :)

                                rather than having 'N' number of wothless features,
                                MI should include SpO2 monitor, Accurate tracking in REM/Pedometer.
                                Honor Bands are way more better than MI in accuracy.

                                  By CN version you mean the China version right? And won't that come in chinese/mandarin?

                                    What is the cost of the mi band 5

                                      The Mi Band 5 isn't worth the upgrade with the lack of SpO2 sensor that the Honor band 5 had it before. People should just wait for Honor 6 or even Amazfit 6 that will have Alexa and Blood oxygen sensor

                                        The Mi Band 4 also supports setting any photo as background. This is not a new feature.
