Upgrading its popular Mi Smart Band series, Xiaomi has launched a budget-friendly next-generation fitness tracker Mi Smart Band 5 for just Rs 2,499 in India ahead of the festive season.

Mi Smart Band 5 comes with an upgraded and large display which means 20 percent more screen. It sports a 1.1-inch AMOLED display while its predecessor Mi Smart Band 4 offered a 0.95-inch AMOLED display.

The wearable also comes with all-new hassle-free magnetic charging. We used the smart band for a couple of days. Let’s see how it fares. Mi Smart Band 5 looks almost identical to its predecessor Mi Smart Band 4 but makes some notable improvements. The overall design and look of the band are impressive.

Not just activity tracking or wellness tracking, in terms of design, weight, and battery this smart band has ticked the right boxes.

In comparison with Huawei Band 4, which costs Rs 1,999 and sports a 0.96-inch TFT LCD display, the Mi Smart Band 5 has outshined others in this segment with its big 1.1-inch AMOLED display which is lighter and more comfortable on the wrist.

The newly launched Fitness band offers 11 professional sports modes that track all indoor and outdoor activities like walking, running, yoga, rowing machine, jump rope, and many more. Pixabay

The big change here is that users don’t need to remove the strap to charge the band like the previous trackers as Xiaomi has introduced magnetic charging in the new generation. Another plus is that unlike Mi Band 4, it comes with unlimited watch faces and the user can customize it as well.

The display of the band is sharp and bright. It offers no buttons on the sides which gives it a simple yet attractive look. There’s only a single touch button, at the bottom of the screen. The device offers 11 professional sports modes that track all indoor and outdoor activities like walking, running, yoga, rowing machine, jump rope, and many more.

Also, the Mi Smart Band 5 features an all-new women’s health tracking that helps record the menstrual cycle/ovulation phases and provides useful reminders — which make this tracker better than other fitness bands.

The device includes improved 24-hour continuous heart rate and sleep monitoring due to the improved PPG biosensors.

The band also includes features like phone unlocking, do not disturb, find my phone, the music control, weather details, and camera shutter.

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
