So far it was an area where Xiaomi seemed to be the only firm in terms of compliance. But that can change in the short term. Field of smart rings, which for years was led by the Xiaomi Mi Band of any generation, is now embracing the strong position of China and its realme Band, an affordable smartband that reaches out with the intention of planting faces it carries the most popular from China.
However Can a real band steal the prominence from Mi Band 4? We've already seen what you can do in the smartphone sector, where it already is the fastest-growing product in history. Now, we have to see if its emergence in the market for "wearable" devices has any real future.

The same resources under a very different package
While Xiaomi did a pretty good job back then keep a design similar to the one that appeared
In both cases the bracelets showed up silicone strings, the difference that in the case of the Xiaomi model is it can be easily changed.
On the other hand, screens also share some features, such as being supported OLED technology or tactile. Alternatively, the Xiaomi model wins the game in terms of solutions, though the real threat is the advantage – at least in terms of aesthetic value – of having a small curvature, which in theory should improve its ergonomics if it fits better in a doll.
Among other details, we will find it touch buttons integrated into the enable screen do things like turn on the wristband or turn back.
Without getting rid of even the construction part, we have to stop there difference in water resistance each with bracelets. Xiaomi is a clear winner in this regard, because the Mi Smart Band 4 is able to withstand immersion in water up to a pressure of 5 ATM. For its part, Realme only offers IP68 Certificate its threat also shows that it can withstand immersion from time to time, but unlike the Xiaomi model it is not designed for record using swimming.
It's also interesting to stand there that each threat has a very different way of loading. While the Xiaomi model allows you to extract the "context" of the bracelet to connect it to the charger via a pin program, and charge it to a USB port for a computer or smartphone charger, actually choose the easiest, most convenient way attach the USB connector to the bracelet hole itself
When we talk about integrated functions rather than individual rings, the truth is the difference is less talked about. Of course, both devices are focused on looking at health and body function, and as a result there is no shortage of similar tasks automatic sleep monitoring, heart rate sensor, step by step calorie or possible register for various sports activities.
And both rings are familiar send smart alerts when we don't go too long or remind us to drink water, and they are able to release detailed statistical reports about our sleep habits through their compatible mobile apps – Link to Realme Band, and Mi Fit to Xiaomi threat –
There is also, of course, an option for receive mobile alerts on the threat. Xiaomi offers the option to choose which apps you want to receive alerts for, which will be notified of a threat vibration, and in many cases will also be able to see its content. For its part, it also really allows view notifications and their content on the wristband screen, and the option to accept or reject mobile phone calls.
Great battle for the best self-control
Since the launch of the first model, the Mi Band series has been unknown from the rest give one of the most extended Autonomies for a whole range of smart rings available in the market. In the case of the Smart Band 4, the numbers cannot be counted as in previous editions due to the high power consumption of the AMOLED color panel. However, its independence is still far enough to overcome the realme model.
Because while the Xiaomi bracelet gives the range closer for two weeks You actually point out that your bracelet can be used in season about ten days, which will only be seven if you use heart monitoring.
Which is better?
Although the first realme model in the smart rings category is very interesting, today, and at least on paper, Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 remains the queen of this category, even more so now that many months have passed, that is The initial problems have already been fixed on a larger scale, and that Its price is greatly reduced.
