Xiaomi has essentially changed the name of the Mi Band 2 launched last year without the heart-rate sensor.
Xiaomi has launched its Mi Band-HRX Edition in collaboration with Hrithik Roshan’s fitness brand HRX for the Indian market. The fitness band will be available on Flipkart, Amazon and Myntra from September 20th. The fitness band is essentially a re-branded version of the last year’s Mi band-HRX Edition but without the heart rate sensor and available now for a lesser Rs 1,299 price tag compared to Mi Band 2’s Rs 1,999.
The Mi Band-HRX Edition will be available in blue and black coloured band variants. The fitness band can sustain itself for 23 days on a single battery charge. It has an OLED display that can display time, calories burnt, steps walked, distance walked and battery charge. It utilises Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to your smartphone and even notifies you of app notifications when paired with the Mi Fit app.
The original Mi Band 2 is still available with its heart rate sensor for Rs 1,999.
