Amazfit Band 5 is available (for a pre-order)

New MiBand is not from Xiaomi

A rumoured pro version of Xiaomi MiBand 5 (review) is not going to be released under the Xiaomi ecosystem. Instead of that, Huami (the company behind Mi Bands, Xiaomi’s subsidiary) has announced Amazfit Band 5 instead – the speculated version of Xiaomi MiBand 5 with extra features. The new gadget is available now for pre-order.

Amazfit Band 5

It seems that the Amazfit brand is moving forward. Earlier on, the app has been renamed to Zepp (former Amazfit) and now the flagship version of the sports tracker made for Xiaomi: MiBand – is available directly through Amazfit as Amazfit Band 5.

As an owner of an Amazfit GTR (review) I can vouch for the quality of the gadgets. The former Amazfit app – Zepp is a carbon copy of the MiFit app. In fact, both apps allow cross pairing the sports trackers (at least for now).

Amazfit Band 5 is available for pre-order for $49.99 via Amazon! It makes sense as the new sports tracker supports Alexa! The band is slated for 30th September 2020 so if you add it to your basket now – you will be first to get the confirmation when the Amazfit Band 5 is available!

What’s new?

Rumours were true and both Alexa and the SpO₂ sensor (blood oxygen) made the final cut, but there is no mention of NFC. It looks like Amazfit Band 5 is slightly smaller than the Xiaomi’s counterpart. It looks like the band is available in black, orange and olive (UK listing).

If you wanted a much better upgrade than Xiaomi MiBand 5 – you can pre-order yours using the links below. Any thoughts? You can leave a comment in this Reddit thread.
