Hi Mi Fans,|
I am back with another Unboxing thread. I hope you guys loved my previous unboxing of the Xiaomi Mi Key. This time i have bought my own brand new Mi Band 2.
Since its currently unavailable in India right now due to Heart Rate issue (I am not sure), the selling has been stopped and it's been Out Of Stock from mi.com for more than 4 months. So i tried out to buy it from Aliexpress.com. With the help of my dear brother Shafiq, i was able to buy it from Aliexpress for Rs.1400 on a offer period (Lucky me!). I got the Band 22 days after placing my order due to transportation issues and Custom clearances. Before that the seller 'Xiaomi Online Store' has warned me that Mi Band 2 may won't work on for those who have dark skin, and unfortunately i have dark skin. Still i am going to try out my luck. So let's go to the Unboxing.
Here is the beautiful, secure packing from Aliexpress! Yay!
Here comes my new fitness gadget. Can't wait to get my hands on it!
The package comes along with 2X Screen Guard. For Free!
The White Box! Isn't she gorgeous???
And its a Global variant with the 'IF Design Award' emblem!
The manual comes alone with both English and Chinese
Now it's time for the magical words 'open sesame'
The black pearl in the white shell
The complete box, still the charger hide beneath the box
The strap is of good quality. Can't wait to put the 'Bullet' in the Gun
And there is the charger!
Like i said before, a Black Pearl in my hand!
It comes fully drained, so it's charging time! My friend Karthik suggested me to charge it via PC USB! It took 2hrs for full charge.
Its time for unleash the 'Magic' within...
Wooh! The heart rate works! I hope it works after pairing it with Mi Fit app and updating the firmware, fingers crossed
I can't stop myself from snapping my new Mi gadget! Because i am 'A Hardcore Mi Fan'
Heart rate still works in my dark toned skin! (Damn! am i this much dark? ) I am about to try my luck after updating the firmware!
My friend Amal told me that it won't work. A bet maybe!

Firmware updated, now its connecting the Band
Its updating! But for my bad luck, the Heart Rate is not working after updating the firmware I have to turn the strap on my wrist (Like girls put their watch) to know the Heart rate... Irritated*

Its Setup time! I choose Steps, Heart Rate (Useless now!) and Remaining Battery as my main priority
Fitness days are ahead for me!
I got the Band 2 yesterday (4/7/2017) and till now its working perfectly except for the Heart Rate! Another collection to my Mi Gadgets. Talking about the Band 2, this is a very.. indeed a very useful gadget at this price point. I highly recommend everyone to buy it. I am not compelling all to buy from Aliexpress or any other site, since we don't know whether there might be a Mi Band 3 or an updated Mi Band 2 (with no Heart Rate sensor issue) on the cards! I heard a rumour like that (just rumour).
So that all guys, i hope you all liked my simple unboxing thread (i am not a professional reviewer ) Please REPLY your suggestions and opinions below. I will try to post more unboxing threads soon... Until next time, bye guys! This is HSG signing off
