Well, they went fast! The newly announced Mi Smart Band 5 sold out here in the UK in less than half an hour yesterday.
The guys from Xiaomi are getting additional stock as we speak and should have them available on their website here as soon as I hit “publish” on this news story. They’re a mere £39.99 each.
Ludwig Luo, Country Manager, Xiaomi UK & Ireland, told us…
We’ve been surprised and delighted with how well UK consumers have reacted to the launch of the Mi Smart Band 5. Testament to this, the 300 fitness bands, at an early bird price of £34.99, sold out within less than half an hour of it going on sale. This has meant we’ve now ordered more stock than we had originally planned to meet this demand.
As detailed before, the Mi Smart Band 5 has a 1.1″ colour AMOLED display with 20% more screen than before. It’s water-resistant so you can go from the pool to the the shower and comes with 11 exercise modes, which include indoor cycling, elliptical, yoga, rowing machine and skipping plus much more besides.
This has a 14 day battery life and can also monitor your sleep.
