    I trusted this review, and this fitness tracker is totally unusable, plus I gave my contact info to some company in China that has no web presence in English and won't let me log into my account again. BEWARE! Also I missed out on Black Friday weekend deals on trackers from reputable brands. 🙁

    Amazing video! I'll consider to buy my first smart band if the gadget allows me to connect with a cycling computer and share the heartbeat information… anyone can answer this question for me ? Thanks in advance

    I've got my Mi Band 5 yesterday and it's so much better than my Fitbit Versa 2! I love the small and simple design on the Mi Band and it has so many better features and more exercise options than the Fitbit. The small design also makes it comfortable enough to wear everyday.

    I just hate how useless it is if you have long sleeves or use a jacket while exercising with it. Your workouts will randomly pause because your clothes/sweat/both wake the screen up and keep the button pressed.
