Redmi Smart Band with 1.08″ color display and built-in charging port launched in India for ₹1,599 (~$22)
Earlier this year in April, Xiaomi’s budget-friendly sub-brand Redmi launched the Redmi Band in China. The new fitness band from the company offered a completely new design with a square dial, a 1.08-inch color display, and a built-in USB Type-A connector for charging. The company has now launched the entry-level fitness band in the Indian market as the Redmi Smart Band.

As mentioned earlier, the Redmi Smart Band features a 1.08-inch color LCD with a single touch capacitive button underneath. The fitness band offers features like continuous heart rate monitoring, multiple sports modes for activity tracking, a sleep monitor, and a sedentary reminder. The band boasts of a 14-day battery life on a single charge and it comes with a built-in USB Type-A charging port, much like the Realme Band from earlier this year. This means that users won’t have to worry about carrying a proprietary charging dock to charge the band.
The Redmi Smart Band is water-resistant up to 50 meters for 10 minutes, it includes support for the raise-to-wake gesture, and it packs in 50 custom watch faces. Additionally, the fitness band will also let you control music playback on your connected device, get notification alerts, and reject calls. However, in order to use these features, you’ll need to install the Xiaomi Wear or Xiaomi Wear Lite app on your device.
