Xiaomi has launched a new fitness tracker called Hey+ in China. This new fitness tracker has been launched on the Chinese crowdfunding platform called Youpin.
The Xiaomi Hey+ looks almost identical to Mi Band 3 which was launched a couple of months back during Xiaomi’s 8th anniversary. The Hey+ comes with a slightly larger display and features a 0.95-inch with a resolution of 240×120px instead of a 0.78-inch display with a resolution of 128×80px on Mi Band 3.
The Xiaomi Hey+ comes with inbuilt NFC chip that can be used to pay for stuff like Train passes or as gate tags in buildings that allow access via NFC tags. It comes with a 120 mAh battery like the Mi Band 3.
It can be used to track activities like swimming, running, walking as well as your sleep time. It also comes with a heart rate sensor and the same can be measured using the Mi Fit app.
Additionally, the Xiaomi Hey+ band can let you answer or reject calls and lets you check up to 10 calls and up to 10 messages on the display. Like the Mi Band 3, Hey+ can be used to access other Xiaomi Home devices with the help of Xiaomi’s Mijia app.
The Xiaomi Hey+ is priced at CNY 229 or approx. USD 33.58 and will start retailing starting September 20th. There is no word on its global availability as of now.In case you are eager to get hold of one for yourselves, you can head over to this sales page on YouPin.
