Xiaomi Mi Band which went on sale on May 5 was out of stock in mere seven seconds. Following the first ‘special preview’ sale last week, Xiaomi is all set to conduct its second flash sale for the Mi Band on its website on Tuesday starting 2pm IST. According to sources, 10,000 units will be available for purchase and only registered buyers will be able to participate.
During the previous sale, the Mi band was given to first 1000 registrants at Re. 1 as a special offer. However, there would be no such scheme today and the Xiaomi Mi Band will be available at Rs. 999 only. Meanwhile, the Mi Band is offered in several colour variants including blue, pink, brown, black, purple and grey. With a battery life of up to 30 days, the band is compatible with Android smartphones as well as iPhones.
Xiaomi launched the budget-friendly Xiaomi Mi Band in India last month alongside the Xiaomi Mi 4i at an event held in New Delhi. The new Mi Band counts the total number of steps you take at a certain point of time, distance covered and the amount of calories lost. Apart from this, the band also works as an alarm and notifies about incoming calls. Mi Bands are water resistant. Hence, users don’t have to worry, even if the gadget accidentally falls into a swimming pool!
