Conclusion

Mi Band 2, we strongly encourage you to have it. During our usage period, it’s really comfortable to wear also prices offered are still low compared to other brands. The feature on Mi Band 2 which we love is the time display because I no longer wearing watch. However, if you use the 12 hours format instead of 24 hours, there are bugs should fixed by Xiaomi. Where if the time is 12.15am, on 12-hour format must display 12:15, but Mi Band 2 shows 0:15. I already send a feedback regarding that bug, so i guess need to wait for them to fix it.
