The new Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 fitness tracker is now available on Amazon US and at a reasonable price, too. US shoppers can pick up the Mi Smart Band 5 from US$49.98, which is similar to the price of the wearable in Europe. However, buyers should be aware that this is the non-NFC variant of the smart band.

The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 can now be purchased in the United States courtesy of Amazon US. Interested buyers who would like to test out the popular fitness tracker can currently place an order for it from US$49.98 with free shipping. Depending on the storefront, stock is expected to become available around 26-27 July, with delivery of the Mi Smart Band 5 starting shortly afterwards.

The price of US$49.98 (apparently reduced from US$79.99) for the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 is a reasonable deal for US customers. In Europe, buyers will have to pay £39.99 or €39.99 for the fitness tracker from the relevant official Xiaomi Mi online store. The Amazon US price is equivalent to about £40 or €44 in a direct exchange rate (not including tax), so there are no concerns for Amazon US shoppers who might feel the Mi Smart Band 5’s price has been inflated too much for the North American market.

The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 SKU available to order on Amazon US is the non-NFC variant, which lucky customers in China can pick up for just 189 yuan (US$27/£22/€24). Although this model does not have Amazon Alexa functionality or the much-wanted SpO2 sensor, it still has plenty to offer. The Mi Smart Band 5 manages both sleep monitoring and 24/7 heart-rate monitoring, and it has a step counter, calorie counter, smartphone synchronization utility, magnetic charging, women’s health features, 11 sports modes, and much more to tempt US customers with.
