Mi band 5, comes with a larger display, more fitness activities, women’s health, and magnetic charging. This is the 5th generation of the Mi Bands and sports a larger display of 1.1-inch colored AMOLED screen, compared to 0.95-inch on Mi Band 4. It's more prominent display gives it more room for menus and features to be displayed.
More features come with the 5th generation, one of the most prominent features targeted for women is the health tool, that includes menstrual cycle and ovulation monitoring, menstruation prediction and storing the past history of their menstruation conditions via interactive inputs.
Enabling Women Health
