Fitness bracelets from the series We Band have become a really popular alternative to basic monitoring of fitness functions, heart rate or sleep, mainly due to their low price. We also tested the previous generation in the editorial office Xiaomi Mi Band 4, which also broke sales records.
The manufacturer is thus preparing the fifth generation of the popular bracelet called Mi Band 5 and the first published photographs have already leaked in several media. However, as it turned out over time, these are counterfeits.
Photos are forgeries
At first glance, the equipment of the new bracelet looked Mi Band 5 very suspiciously. At its low price, according to the available photos, it should offer a much larger display with minimal margins and even a modern space for the control.
At first glance, everything looks quite plausible if not for the watermark hinting at Weibo 😅 pic.twitter.com/jnQyPG9KDz

Despite this equipment, several media outlets published the images as genuine. However, Xiaomishka, a reliable source on the social network Twitter, called these photos false.
Not only is it suspiciously tempting, but the problem was also the watermark, which revealed the falsity of the photo.
The silicone bracelet and the contours of the device themselves are not so unrealistic, but we cannot say with certainty what the display will look like, its diagonal and we also do not know the technical specifications of the bracelet being prepared.
However, we know with certainty that the published photos are not real shots of the prepared bracelet. We will have to wait for further leaks of information or. for the performance itself by the Chinese producers.
We are really looking forward to the new bracelet. And how about you? What features would you like in a new bracelet? You can write your comments to us in the discussion below the article. Follow Xiaomi Planet and learn more.
