The Mi Band three was sure as shooting Xiaomi’s biggest-selling fitness huntsman, because of the addition of a touchscreen and its reasonable tag. The Mi Band four recently arrived with a much-awaited upgrade – a color show and this directly pits Xiaomi’s fitness huntsman against the recently launched Honor Band five.

Unlike the last year’s Mi Band that had a 0.78-inch OLED display with 80×128 pixels resolution, the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 sports a 0.95-inch colour AMOLED display that has 120×240 pixels resolution and a 2.5D glass protection on top. The new model supports touch inputs as well as comes with a built-in microphone to enable voice commands.

Under the hood, there is a six-axis accelerometer that is touted to help monitor physical activities, including cycling, exercise, running, swimming, and walking. The device is 5 ATM rated and is designed to identify various swimming strokes, namely freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly, and mixed-style. Also, it offers swolf score to help users determine their swimming skills.

Xiaomi has integrated a payments mode on the Mi Band 4. The users need to swipe the screen to show to QR code on their Mi Band 4 to make payments on-the-go.

The AMOLED display panel of the Mi Band 4 is capable of providing information about your physical activity as well as notifications on new text messages and voice calls directly from the connected phone. The display can also be used to find the phone or switch the music track with one tap. Similarly, it provides live weather and stock updates.

Overall, the display of the Mi Band 4 can feature 77 colourful watch faces, six sports modes, and all the information that was available on the previous Mi Band models. The wrist band is also rated to deliver 20 days of battery life on a single charge.
