Xiaomi Mi Band 5: What to expect

The official image of the device also confirms that Mi Band 5 will come in four color options. These include green, red, yellow and black.

As far as overall design is concerned, the Mi Band 5 looks similar to the Mi Band 4 and even seems to retain the home button in the lower side of the display. The images on the band also confirm some of the rumored features of the fitness tracker. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi Band 5 new details leaked online ahead of official launch

We can see that Mi Band 5 is likely to come with additional fitness tracking features. These include five new exercise tracking modes including yoga, elliptical machine, indoor rowing, indoor cycling and rope jumping. One of the wearable shows support for payments, which has been rumored for quite some time. This could mean that Mi Band 5 will launch with NFC in China and support contactless payment solution. It is not clear whether this will be a global feature or restricted to the Chinese market. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi Band 5 with bigger display spotted online

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is also expected to support menstrual tracking feature this year. We could see the fitness band include a SpO2 sensor for stress and breath tracking. There are also rumors that Mi Band 5 will enable support for remote shutter function. With this feature, you will be able to control the camera on paired devices. However, the biggest feature could debut in the form of Amazon Alexa on the international models. We will know more later this week.
