February 13, 2022 by No Comments

Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Smart Band Pro alongside the Redmi Note 11 and Redmi Note 11S. Based on its name, this is clearly positioned as more capable than the Redmi Smart Band. The new Redmi Smart Band Pro brings with it many features that are in demand, such as an AMOLED display, SpO2 and stress tracking, and the ability to track multiple types of workouts. With the improved feature list, the price has gone up too, but only by a bit. Does the Redmi Smart Band Pro still offer good value for your money? I put this fitness tracker to the test to find out.

The Redmi Smart Band Pro has a rectangular polycarbonate body that houses a 1.47-inch AMOLED display. This panel is large enough to easily read text on without having to squint. It also has an always-on mode, and there’s an ambient light sensor to adjust its brightness automatically. The Smart Band Pro has no buttons, and navigation is purely touch-based. You get TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) straps which are curved, similar to the ones on the Mi Band 6 (Review). These straps have a proprietary connector, which makes it easy to remove them without needing additional tools.

The underside of the Redmi Smart Band Pro has all the health sensors placed in a pill-shaped bump. There are also contact pins which are used to charge the Smart Band Pro. The supplied charger has magnets, making it easy to plug this fitness band in for charging.

I found the Redmi Smart Band Pro to be super-light at just 25.5g. I barely noticed it on my wrist, and also wore it to bed without any issues. The Smart Band Pro packs in a 200mAh battery and is 5ATM water resistant.
