    First Lot of Xiaomi Mi Bands To Go on Sale August 18

    The Xiaomi Mi Band, if you remember correctly, was announced during the Xiaomi Mi 4 launch that took place on July 22. The Mi Band, itself, is a very basic device that comes with a simple rubber wrist strap, alongside small box of tricks with LED notification lights.

    "What the Mi Band lacks in features though, it will more than make up for the retail price. In China the Xiaomi Mi Band will cost only 79 Yuan, even with a reseller mark up and customs fans outside of China can expect low prices of around just $18, that is considerably less than the current range of Android Wear devices," GizChina rightfully states.
