Keeping track of your fitness should not be expensive. After all, you’ve probably already spent plenty of dough on new-age foods and exercise equipment to keep you in tip-top shape. So when it comes to simply tracking your day-to-day activity, a welcome thing would be a product which doesn’t cost the earth — a fitness band that’s, say, $13.
The Xiaomi Mi Band is just that. It’s a fitness band and sleep tracker that’s significantly cheaper than the likes of the Jawbone UP3 and other products such as the Withings Activite. The key difference between the Mi Band and other fitness trackers though is that the Mi is very difficult to get ahold of – it’s only on sale in China, where Xiomi sells plenty of them.
