Xiaomi Mi Band 1S with Heart Rate Sensor now official at 99 Yuan

    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.

    The Mi Band 1S despite sporting a Heart Rate Sensor still comes with a 45mAh battery. Previously the original Mi Band with the same battery came with a company stated life of 30 days. However expect a tad lower battery backup from the new one thanks to the sensor.
