The Mi Smart Band 4 features the same capsule design that we have seen with the previous generation Mi Band devices. However, the capsule looks more polished with the 2.5D tempered glass covering the display and a touch-sensitive button on the top. 

The bottom features the heart rate sensor and the charging pins with a recessed area at the sides for the wrist strap. The soft wrist strap quality is good and is comfortable to wear for all-day use. Another good thing about the Mi Smart Band 4 straps are that one can reuse their old straps from Mi Band 3

Mi Smart Band 4 Specification.

The 0.95-inch AMOLED color touchscreen display is a major upgrade when you compare it from the last year's model. The 120x240 pixel display is sharp and legible even in direct sunlight, thanks to the adjustable display brightness that reaches up to 400 nits. Having a touch display frees from the single button navigation. The button still works as a back or a wake-up button but most of the things on the band can be done with simple up/down swipes. 

Just like other Mi Band, the Mi Smart Band 4 also requires Mi Fit app for the initial setup and if you want to enhance the functionality of the band. The app not only allows viewing of historical fitness data, sleep data and heart rate but can be used to configure for app notifications. The app can also be used to sync watch faces or create a new one from the images in the phone gallery.

Mi Band 4 Review

The band can also be used to reject/silence calls and control music. Tracking of fitness data is at par with some expensive alternatives and while the workouts are recorded as intended, we discovered the Mi Smart Band 4 to not record a workout if you don't tap on the prompt before beginning the actual workout. This can be infuriating if you're in the middle of a workout and suddenly realize the band is yet to start recording it. This could be resolved by making that prompt auto-hide after a few seconds. 

The band can also record swimming workouts, which is possible with the device’s resistance to water to up to 50 meters.

Mi Smart Band 4 Battery Life.

The band’s battery life is excellent that lasts up to 20 days on a single charge but we cannot say the same for the charging cradle it comes with. Xiaomi has changed the sliding charger to the dock design and more often than not, the Mi Smart Band 4 does not rest properly, popping the device out and stop charging.

However, Mi Smart Band 4’s pros outweigh the cons, which still makes it the best fitness band at this price with some smart-watch lie features.
