As expected Xiaomi finally unveiled their updated Mi Band 1S in China today. However it seems that the device went official a little too early, considering the fact that it was scheduled to happen on 11th of November. Nevertheless as reported before the presence of a Heart Rate Sensor is the main added feature of the updated fitness tracker.

The Mi Band 1S shares the same external design as seen in the original Mi Band. However the inclusion of a Heart Rate Sensor at the back of the main metallic unit of the fitness tracker has increased it in both length, breadth and depth (37mmx13.6mmx9.9mm).

This mean that the metallic sensor of the new Mi Band will not be able to fit into the strap of the previous ones. That's a bummer of sorts, considering the fact that existing Mi Band owners can't use their present bands with the new device.
