Hello everyone, this is Surya from GeekySplash. In this video, let’s unbox the Xiaomi Mi Band 4. I bought this from AliExpress for 37$ that’s around Rs.2600 and this one is a Global variant. Comes in English and doesn’t have NFC or Voice support. Without further ado, let’s unbox the package. I ordered this on June 15th and got delivered on July 1st, which is pretty fast. In the package we have the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 Global Variant retail box, it’s a little tampered but okay. The box looks pretty shiny. To the back of the box, we have details about Colour, Compatibility, Package contents, Bluetooth version and Manufacturer’s name written in 7 languages, as it is a global variant. We have the main features to either side of the box i.e Colour touchscreen, Notification Display, Sleep and step auto-monitoring, and 5 ATM Water resistant, Various Exercise modes and Heart rate monitoring. Inside the box, we have the Band small 125-page manual which basically has basic installation setup and usage written in 9 languages.
Yeah, because it is a global variant. And we have the charger adapter, to charge the band. And here we have the Mi Band 4. Which comes switched on. You just need to pair it to make it work. Apart from that, I felt the Band 4’s strap was smooth and to the behind, we have the heart rate sensor and charging port. To pair the Band, you have to download the Mi Fit app, Sign up if you haven’t, it takes a few minutes. And after you’re logged in hit the Band option turn on Bluetooth and GPS.
