Redmi Smart Band: Expectations
Based on the teasers from Redmi, it seems Xiaomi will bring the same Redmi Smart Band from the global markets to India. The fitness tracker gets all the essential features with a new design and a lower price tag. In China, the company sells it for CNY 99 (roughly Rs 1,000). We are expecting the band to get priced extremely competitive in India as well because the market is full of options already. To give you a context, the Mi Band 3i costs Rs 1,299 and Redmi could launch it at a similar price or even lower. Most importantly, it will compete with the Realme Band at Rs 1,499.

In India teasers, Xiaomi teased the Redmi Smart Band event page with tag line – “What’s Your Score?”, which is presumably a fitness score. The page also teases three colourful strap options of green, blue, and red. Then the teasers suggest a long lasting battery, water resistance, heart rate monitoring, and a light weight build. All of it, will be revealed today in a live stream at 12:00PM (noon).
