Although the xiaomi 13 Ultra was the center of attention at today's new product launch event, there were other goods that deserved our attention. For example, Xiaomi unveiled the Xiaomi Band 8, its eighth-gen smartband.
The new wristband departs from the standard design style of previous versions. Now, it uses a metal-textured central frame and is available in two colors: black/light gold.
Meet the Brand New Xiaomi Band 8
The Xiaomi Band 8 has quick-release straps on both sides that can be removed with a single touch. There are many color options to choose from: TPU multicolor straps, leather plaid straps, woven straps, double-circle color-matched leather straps, stainless steel leather chain straps, and many more.
This fitness tracker comes with a 1.62-inch screen, which supports 60Hz, 326PPI, and 600nit brightness. We need to mention that plenty of dials allow users to enter and play games with a single key – pinball, 2048, and so on.
