Redmi Smart Band has now been confirmed to launch in India on September 8. According to Redmi India’s official Twitter account, the fitness tracker will be launched at 12PM on September 8. While no specific features of the basic fitness tracker has been revealed yet, the tweet by Redmi India has indicated at multiple sports modes on the band. Furthermore, the Redmi Smart Band’s own teaser page also suggests that it will get multiple colours for straps, and it is likely that the band features interchangeable straps for you to add variety to your wearable, in the long run.
Redmi Smart Band’s overall feature set has not been revealed clearly. However, Xiaomi did launch a Redmi Band in its home country, China, earlier this year. Now, reports suggest that the Redmi Smart Band that is set to launch in India will be a renamed version of the Redmi Band launched in China a few months ago. Going by the feature set that it has, the Redmi Smart Band may come with features such as five dedicated sports modes, water resistance, an optical heart rate sensor, sleep monitoring, and even a 1.08-inch colour display that users can configure and personalise with up to 70 dial faces. The Redmi Band has also been marketed with 14-day battery life.

Additionally, the teaser poster for the launch of the Redmi Smart Band also alludes to an app-based fitness score that users will get from the wearable. As of now, it is not clear if Redmi India will be hosting a virtual launch event for the Redmi Smart Band’s launch on September 8. Redmi’s sister brand and fellow Xiaomi subsidiary, POCO, has also confirmed that it will be officially launching its first budget smartphone, the POCO M2, in India on September 8. However, given that the two brands function independently of each other, it is unlikely that the two will share the same launch stage. Since they are standalone launches, it is even likely that the Redmi Smart Band will only get a launch announcement on the said date and time.
The Redmi Band in China is priced at CNY 99 (about INR 1,100), and if the Redmi Smart Band carries over the same set of specifications, it is likely to come with similar pricing as well. All eyes will be on the Redmi India Twitter handle, where the launch announcement for the fitness wearable is set to be made, next week.
