Xiaomi launches latest Band 5 fitness tracker and wireless earphones (plus two e-scooters)

Last modified date

Xiaomi held an event today with no new phones, concentrating instead on new accessories.

In this case, the company launched the Band 5 fitness tracker, the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic, and even some new e-scooters.

Mi Band 5

The Band 5 comes with a 1.1-inch AMOLED display with 450nits maximum brightness and a screen resolution of 126×294 pixels.

It comes with a number of strap colours, including black, orange, navy blue, yellow, teal and mint green.

Unlike previous bands, the Band 5 now comes with a new magnetic charging system that does away with the need to pop the main unit out of the strap to charge.

The 125mAh battery fitted inside is good for up to 14 days standby time.

An improved PPG heart rate sensor is accompanied with a 3-axis accelerator and 3-axis gyroscope sensor for enhanced tracking, and the improved display makes it easier to view activity statistics, messages and notifications at-a-glance.

There are over 65 different theme options manageable via the Mi Fit app, and the band is now good for submersion in water at up to 50 metres depth.

Another cool feature is the ability to take a camera shot using the band as a remote control.

The price is €39.99 and the Band 5 will be available direct from Xiaomi direct and many other online retailers.


Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic

The 48g Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic offers all-day listening with 20 hours of total battery life, made up of 5 hours of uninterrupted usage between charges (and the supplied charging case giving three charges of its own before needing a top-up).

Once charging of the case is necessary, just hook up any USB-C cable and it will be back to full charge in 1.5 hours.

A dual microphone allows for noise cancelling on phone calls, and on the audio playback side the earphones have a large 14.2mm dynamic driver withsupport advanced SBC/AAC codecs.

In-ear detection will instantly pause music playback when either earphone is removed from the ear, and a double tap feature allows you to configure different functions to be carried out when tapped.

The Bluetooth 5 BLE protocol allows usage of the earphones up to 10 metres away from your device.

The price is £39.99 and the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic will be available direct from Xiaomi direct, and many other online retailers.


  • Xiaomi also launched two new e-scooters, the Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2 and Mi Electric Scooter 1S.
