In early July, the Amazfit Band 5 was spotted in the FCC database. Now the fitness tracker has been spotted on the Amazon website, where a specific release date for the device is indicated.
The Amazfit Band 5 has the same design as the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 (Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5). This is not surprising since both devices are manufactured by the same Huami company. But the capabilities of the devices are different.
For example, the Amazfit Band 5 has a built-in Amazon Alexa voice assistant. This allows you to search for information, set alarms and timers, create shopping lists and manage compatible smart home products without using a smartphone.
The device also has a sensor to track the heart rate and blood oxygen saturation level, allow you to assess the quality and duration of sleep, monitor the level of stress, breathing exercises, and track the female cycle. There are 11 sports modes including swimming.
Amazfit Band 5 received a color AMOLED display with over 45 watch faces, including 2 customizable ones. The bracelet supports music control and can also serve as a remote control for your phone’s camera. The battery life is 15 days with normal use and 25 days in power saving mode.
The fitness tracker will retail for $ 50 with sales starting September 30.
