The latest model offers the same 1.62-inch, 192 x 490-pixel AMOLED always-on display seen in the Mi Band 7, however, this year’s model has a 60Hz refresh rate and brightness of up to 600 nits. Out of the box, users will also immediately recognize a new quick-release strap. The band’s straps now clip into the tracker pill rather than wrap around the display.
Beneath the hood, the Mi Band 8 features many of the previous generations core features with minor upgrades. The device offers more than 150 sports modes, plus continuous heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen monitoring, stress and sleep tracking, and workout analysis. It also boasts a battery life of 16 days with regular use or 6 days with the always-on display enabled.
