At its global launch event in New Delhi’s monumental Siri Fort Auditorium, Xiaomi launched the Mi Band for its Indian fanbase. While Mi 4i took the center stage, the Mi Band, priced at a minimal Rs.999 is sure to give all other smartband manufacturers a run for their money.

Its has been proven to posses brilliant anti-UV, anti-microbial, and anti-allergic properties, meaning that it’s unlikely to irritate even the most sensitive skin.
