Today, Xiaomi disclosed a couple of features of the upcoming Xiaomi Band 2. Apart from the ability to be attached to the sneakers, it has a special sports mode.
The Xiaomi Band 8 will have a new “somatosensory interactive boxing” mode. Many people who don’t have time to go running, don’t have the necessary equipment at home, and want to work out will find somatosensory boxing to be an excellent solution.
Whatever the occasion, as long as this mode is activated, the user can perform somatosensory boxing workouts, also known as “training at any time”, just as if they were carrying a set of somatosensory grips.
It’s worth noting that Xiaomi’s advances in the Band 8 don’t stop there. The company announced today that the smartband would include a ‘running bean’ mode, which will allow users to attach the bracelet’s rice grains to sports shoes via accessories.
As a result, the wristband can provide 13 pieces of professional data, such as stride frequency, stride length, ground impact force, and landing type, to provide customers with thorough running posture guidance.
From the official poster, we can see that the Xiaomi Band 8 has gotten more rounded in comparison to the previous version. The casing seems to be made of metal, which is more textured and trendy than the old plastic.
Also, the strap is said to have been altered to a quick-release version, which not only makes the machine handier but also lighter. As it’s easier to remove the strap, the company has also produced a variety of straps with various alternatives such as leather and metal that can be suited to a variety of wearing styles.
As a reminder, the Band 8 will be launched alongside the Xiaomi 13 Ultra on 18 April.
By the way, a day earlier, on April 17, its main rival, the Huawei Band 8, will be announced during a big conference. According to Huawei’s official introduction, it will come with a huge full-screen display, and the bracelet’s total weight and thickness will be lowered to provide a more pleasant wearing experience.
