Redmi Band supports 5 sports modes. The information is displayed on a 1.08-inch color screen. The shape of the display is rectangular. There is no information about the resolution.

Water protection deserves a separate talk. The case withstands pressure up to 5ATM. Redmi Band is suitable for swimmers, but not for divers. You can not dive. Rain, splashes and sweat are not afraid.

Unfortunately, it is not without subtleties. There is no important feature - NFC. Forget about contactless payments. But Redmi did not skimp on the desktop wallpaper. There are as many as 70 of them - a wide choice.

As for battery life, it is adequate. The manufacturer guarantees up to 2 weeks without recharging. The latter, by the way, is done through the USB port. No special adapter is needed (like the Mi Smart Band 4).

It takes 2 hours to fully "revive" the Redmi Band. The device itself has a black color. However, the straps are different: black, blue, olive green and orange.
