If you want a fitness tracker but don't necessarily fancy dropping a couple hundred quid on something fancy, you're in luck; Xiaomi is launching its Mi Smart Band 4 in the United Kingdom this summer for just £35.
The device has been released in three models, the Mi Band 4, an NFC variant and Mi Band 4 Avengers Series Limited Edition. But it also comes with the addition of a 3-axis gyroscope and accelerometer which the former was not found in the Mi Band 3. The band includes step tracking, sleep tracking heart rate sensor among other things. Introduced as a successor to the Mi Band 3, the band will go on sale in China later this month. The implicit amplifier of the Mi Band 4 empowers it to perceive voice directions.More news: Real Madrid sign 'Japanese Messi' Takefusa Kubo

There is also a limited edition Avengers edition which comes with additional bands and NFC support.
The Mi Band 4, or Mi Smart Band 4 if you like, hits the market with an upgraded design over its predecessor. Mi9T's 64 GB variant costs 329 euros (about 25,900 rupees) and will be available in Spain from June 17.

Not at all like the Mi Band that had a 0.78-inch OLED display with 80×128 pixels resolution, the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 sports a 0.95-inch colour AMOLED display that has 120×240 pixels resolution and a 2.5D glass protection on top. Some of the features included are touch and the ability to accept voice commands.
Xiaomi has also integrated payment mode on the new Mi Band 4 wherein the user needs to swipe the screen for showing QR code on the band to make payments on the go. The users can also use the fitness band for finding the phone or changing music track with just one tap.
