Realme recently launched its first-ever fitness tracker Realme Band alongside its Realme 6 series smartphones. The wearable device is priced at Rs 1,499 and available on realme.com for the users. The Realme Band competes with Xiaomi’s Mi Band 4 in the Indian market and we are comparing the two devices based on their specifications and features.
Realme Band vs Mi Band 4: Pricing and models
As already mentioned, the Realme Band is priced at Rs 1,499 whereas the Mi Band 4 is priced at Rs 2,299. The Realme Band comes with three coloured strap options– Black, Yellow, and Green. The Mi Band 4, on the other hand, is available in four coloured straps– Black, Orange, Purple, and Burgundy.
Realme Band vs Mi Band 4: Screen and battery
The Realme Band features a 0.96-inch TFT screen with 80×160 pixels resolution and 3D tempered glass, whereas the Mi Band 4 sports a 0.95-inch AMOLED display with 120×240 pixels resolution and 2.5D tempered glass. While both the fitness trackers sports coloured display, based on the specifications, the Mi Band 4’s screen is better in comparison. The biggest difference between the two bands is that the Mi Band 4 features a full-screen touch display while the Realme Band features only a touch button for navigation.
Another difference comes with battery capacity. The Realme Band features 90mAh battery while the Mi Band 4 features a bigger 135mAh battery. When it comes to charging, the Realme Band is easy to charge as you only need to take out one side and plug it into USB-A socket. The Mi Band 4, on the other hand, needs to be plucked out of the strap and needs to be charged only via the proprietary charger that comes with the box.
Realme Band vs Mi Band 4: Other features
In terms of features, both the bands are almost identical. Both show SMS, calls, and app notifications as well as feature sleep tracking, sedentary reminder, exercise tracker, steps counter, phone locator, weather forecast, and heart rate monitoring.
