Xiaomi Mi Band, which went on sale on May 5, was out of stock in mere 7 seconds, states Mi India. It was the first flash sale for the Mi Band and also, the first on its own Mi India store. As a special promotional offer, the first 1,000 registrants got the band at Re. 1.
However, we spoke to several users including one of our team members who managed to grab the device at Re 1 who feel the device went out of stock is mere 2-3 seconds.
Some users have also been tweeting about the same.
Xiaomi launched the Mi Band in India last month alongside the Xiaomi Mi 4i at an event held in New Delhi. Just like all Xiaomi’s smartphones, the band is cheap compared to the ones available in the market priced at 999.
It isn't a plain boring looking device and is available in a slew of colour options including bright pink, orange and blue. Just like most of the fitness trackers in the market, it tracks user movements and also sleeping patterns. One of the interesting feature is its ability to unlock a device.
Another notable feature is its battery life. Xiaomi claims that the tracker offers up to 30 days of standby time. Moreover, just like most of its competitors, it is water resistant, so you do not have to worry about little drizzles or liquid spills.
