Xiaomi Mi Band 5

Design and Display

The design language totally didn’t change. It comes in the same form factor we have become accustomed to seeing on products from the Xiaomi Mi band series. Basically, its a pill encased in a strap that allows us to strap it to our wrist.

Speaking of straps, the Mi Band 5 offers three-strap color options. The options include Red, Blue, Green, Black.

The display is an upgrade to what we saw last year. It moved from 0.95-inch to 1.1-inch on the Mi Band 5. Bezels also shrank a bit. This display maintains an AMOLED panel with a screen resolution of 126 x 294.

This display is protected by a 2.5D tempered glass panel.  that protects the screen from scratches and abrasions.


On the performance side of things, we have got a setup that favors less power-intensive tasks. The Mi Band 5 wasn’t designed to do carry out complex tasks like the likes of the Apple Watch Series 5 and Samsung watch active 2. So it won’t make sense to go overboard.

Powering the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is a Dialog SOC (System on chip). It also features 512KB RAM, 16MB RAM, and a 125mAh polymer battery.

Xiaomi made claims that this battery will serve the NFC variant of the Mi Band 5 14 days, while the non-NFC variant will go 20 days on a single charge.

Magnetic Charging

Speaking on charging, Xiaomi took a giant step to improving how the Mi Band is charged.

Gone are the days when you would have to remove the watch from the strap the charge. That hassle as been eliminated. Thanks to the all-new magnetic charging feature, all you have to do is place the magnetic charger on the watch to give it juice.
