Next week, Xiaomi will be unveiling its highly anticipated Band 8. In a recent announcement, CEO Lei Jun hinted that the device will be more than just a wrist-wearable, with teasers revealing that it can also be worn as a pendant and a fashion accessory.
According to Jun, the device will come with at least five stylish straps, each more fashionable than the next, making it a versatile and stylish accessory. This is certainly an exciting development for Xiaomi fans and wearable enthusiasts alike.
Xiaomi’s Band 8 is set to be a pill-shaped device that will come with at least three different pegs to attach various bands, and it can even be worn on the shoe. The device will feature multiple watch faces to complement the user’s style. However, this is all the information currently available on the device.
Xiaomi has decided to move away from the single-strap design that was associated with the Band for years, and instead, offer a two-piece band, even for its more affordable wearable.
Previous reports suggest that the Band 8 will come with a 1.62″ AMOLED display with AOD and over 100 sports modes. The device is expected to be priced at around CNY 250, which translates to approximately $35 or €30. This exciting new release is sure to be eagerly awaited by Xiaomi fans and wearable enthusiasts alike.
