Already certified in South Korea, the Xiaomi Smart Band 8 has been the subject of a publication in which we can discover its design, with a fastening system very different from previous versions.
While Xiaomi announced last Sunday the marketing in France of its new connected watch, the Xiaomi Watch S1 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer is already working on its next connected bracelet. As seen by the site GSM Stadiumthe future Xiaomi Smart Band 8 has already been certified in South Korea.
In fact, the site specialized in mobile technologies has detected a certification for a new connected bracelet on the site of the NRRA, the Korean authority in charge of telecommunications regulation. What to allow to discover certain features of the activity tracker, but also several photos that allow to discover a design inspired in part by Pixel Watch.
So we can discover, on the back of the sensor, a location for the heart rate monitor with a light-emitting LED and a sensor that will allow analysis of the heart rate and, potentially, the rate of oxygenation of the blood. Still on the back, the photos reveal two small pins that should make it possible to recharge the bracelet.
A better integrated bracelet in the sensor
The main novelty, however, would come from the strap hooking system. The Xiaomi Smart Band 8 would have two different bands, like a connected watch, that hang on each side of the sensor. A design change since previous Xiaomi bracelets only offered to integrate the sensor into a slot provided in the bracelet.
Above all, the hanging system is reminiscent of the one we already know with the Google Pixel Watch or the Apple Watch. The same goes for the hook and loop clasp that will be integrated into one of the bracelet’s punches to secure the tracker firmly to the wrist.
It is not yet known when Xiaomi intends to officially launch its new Smart Band 8. As a reminder, the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 was officially announced in May 2022 in China before going on the market in France in June last year. Meanwhile, Xiaomi has also released a more advanced model with GPS tracking, the Smart Band 7 Pro, available this fall.
