Amazfit Band 5
Review date: 11/02/2020
Amazfit--owned by Beijing-based Xiaomi--offers a lower cost health and fitness tracker. It tracks it all--heart rate, sleep, blood oxygen levels, stress, steps, calories, menstrual cycles, and more. It also offers Alexa voice control, which means the little band on your wrist has microphones built-in. It's cheap and feature-packed. Should you trust it? Xiaomi, the parent company of Amazfit, was recently caught secretly collecting data on some users, so buyer beware.
