ADDITIONAL REVIEW NOTES: BOTH HAVE: 1.1” AMOLED Snap on rear charger Single piece with silicone band Integrated touch button (no physical buttons) Connect only via Bluetooth Only HR sensing and accelerometer Stress monitoring and Breathing exercises Find my phone
FIT2: $60 3D curved glass? 5ATM + IP68 water resistance Better strap (easier) 159mAh (vs 125) 21 day battery life (14 with continuous HR) High heart rate alerts Choose 10 of roughly 100 exercises (vs 11 sports modes) Galaxy Health App (vs Mi Fit) Convenient quick settings Better notifications Cleaner interface (nicer to use and find stuff) Night mode Water mode is not as nice as it was (screen turns on a lot) Advanced auto fitness tracking Can export as GPX (course) but not TCX which means no HR data… why?
Mi Band 5: $45 5ATM water resistance 14 day battery Only needs one app (vs two for Fit 2) PAI Idle alerts Women’s menstrual tracking Remote photo taking Does not allow you to export workouts App is not ideal
HR TESTING PEDOMETER TESTING Brightness testing
Neither have SpO2
CONCLUSION: Compared to last year’s showdown, both models have improved substantially to meet in the middle with a great set of features and an excellent battery life at a fair price. Fit does better: Interface, notifications, strap, and sports modes Mi Band does better: PAI, remote photo taking, price, more accurate HR I think last year, the Mi Band 4 was a clear winner over the Galaxy Fit, especially when comparing prices. Now with these improvements, I think Samsung made a huge comeback, but accuracy is a big factor for me. Which do you prefer?
WHAT GEAR DO I USE? Heart rate sensor: https://mikeobrienmedia.com/Polar-H10 (Polar H10 is known to be one of the most accurate in the industry and therefore acts as a great standard to which I compare smartwatch heart rate sensors)
