Talking about the Mi Band 5 specifications, the wearable ships with a 1.1-inch touchscreen AMOLED colour display, which is 20 percent bigger than its predecessor Mi Band 4. The band features improved sensors for heart and sleep monitoring, as well as PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) that uses heart rate data to inform users of the desired activity level to stay healthy. Additionally, the Mi Band 5 has a total of 11 activity tracking modes, including yoga, rowing, indoor cycling, elliptical, and jump rope exercise. There is also a dedicated mode for women to track their health and menstrual cycle. That said, the Mi Band 5 in India lacks NFC.

The wearable also comes with a new plug-in charging mechanism that latches on the back of Mi Band 5 using magnets. Other highlights include a remote shutter button for taking images on the phone from a distance, customised watch faces, music control, notifications for calls and messages, weather forecast, timer, alarm, and 5ATM water-resistant design that can survive up to 50 meters underwater for 30 minutes.
