The Xiaomi Hey+ is currently available in China for a price of CNY 229 (Rs 2,300) and will be available from the 20th of August via Xiaomi YouPin website. As of now, there is no information regarding the launch of the Xiaomi Hey+ smart band in India.
Xiaomi Hey+ specifications

The display offers a resolution of 240 x 120px, which should be fine for the band with less than 1-inch screen. The Hey+ band also has NFC connectivity, which can be used to authenticate Mi Payment in China.
The band can show details like the number of steps walked, battery percentage, time. Additional, the watch can also show details about the incoming calls and SMS from the connected smartphone. Just like the Mi Band 3, the Xiaomi Hey+ band weighs at 19.7 grams including the strap and a 120 mAh Li-ion battery, which can last up to 8 days on a single charge and the device can charge from 0 to 100% in less than 2 hours.
The Xiaomi Hey+ band can pair with Android or iOS smartphone via Xiaomi Mi-Fit app using Bluetooth 4.2 LE connectivity, where the complete exercise and sleep data will be synced with the smartphone using the same app.
The main highlight of the Xiaomi Hey+ smart band or the fitness band is the fact that the band can be plugged into Xaiomi Home automation system, which can be used to control other smart appliances connected with the Home automation system.
At the price of Rs 2,300, the Xiaomi Hey+ seems like a nice offering, as it has an edge over the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 in almost every aspect except for the battery life. Xiaomi India, please launch the Xiaomi Hey+ smart band in India.
