Ichann, 28 Jan 2017Ive written a review of it before but I'll reiterate the points most important to me. - It ... morewow, thank goodness i came across your review. was planning on getting one after finding out that OPPO R9s DOES NOT has pedometer function. (smartphone without pedometer and also no NFC? Not that smart afterall, eh?) My main purpose for a fitness band, apart from tracking steps, is to track my calories burnt daily. Not just BMR, but also calories burnt during my workouts. The problem with online sellers of MiBand is that they'll always insist you can track calories burnt from your workouts when you ask. Not sure if it's to trick you to buy it, or they do not understand English very well....

Hardly anything supports windows mobile apart from a few major companies. I doubt a smaller company with no immediate plans to globalise is going to. Simply a bad investment on your end if you thought app support and Windows Mobile was a synonymous paradigm
Ive written a review of it before but I'll reiterate the points most important to me.
- It doesn't calculate the BMR (calories burned to sustain you) so you will need to pair it with something that does (Google Fit)
- The calorie formula is outright wrong. Its off by 300-500 calories per 10k steps. Do not take this as dogma as it can be detrimental to your health.
-The heart rate is inaccurate
-Can't recognise exercises automatically
- Doesn't have a food log but you can always pair it to G Fit then use that data for say MFP
What I like:
- The battery life is stellar even with the accurate sleep tracking enabled in settings. Granted I don't have it connected via Bluetooth constantly (I turn off bluetooth on my phone), it lasts 20+ days
- Band is comfortable and the quality of it and the device is well made
- Can display notifications on the phone (I don't utilise this feature)
- Works with smart lock on android
-PRICE. Its cheap and you cannot complain about it (Unlike the majority of the idiots reviewing the app on the play store)
i heard it's automatically updating it's software then not working properly any update on that issue ?
It is really surprising that Mi 2 band does not support Windows mobile. How and why. The millions of windows users are ignored. Requested to launch a supported APP to Windows STORE as a part of extended brand promotion in India immediately.
Recently I have purchased a MI 2 band from Amazone. I am using Lumia 730 windows phone. I have also down loaded the available app Bind me Band form store. Now tel me will it support the app and how to start with the Mi 2 band first.
is there any notification on Xiaomi Mi Band 2 if it loose connection with the smartphone? (vibrating or sound)

I have slept around 4:00AM and 5:00AM and it tracks it accurately. I am just curious, are you wearing the Mi Band while you sleep? Because you need to be wearing it for it to track your sleep. Also, have you tried to turn on the heart monitor for more accurate sleep tracking?
