The Chinese giant has reinforced its commitment to cheap wearables with the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4C, a sports activity bracelet that maintains many of the characteristics of the Xiomi Mi Band 4, although it is shaping up to be an economic version of that.
It is important to note that the fact that it is cheaper than the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 does not mean that the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4C is inferior in everythingIn fact, it exceeds it in some details. For example, the second has a larger OLED screen and has a USB port that allows it to be charged directly and in a simpler way, since we do not have to disassemble the sphere. It also has some disadvantages, although the only really important one is autonomy, since the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4C offers up to 14 days of use for each full charge, while the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 reaches 20 days.
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4C comes no NFC connectivity, a feature that is not present in the international version of the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 either. It is not something especially important, especially considering that we are talking about a cheap sports activity bracelet.
In general, the Xiaomi Mi Band 4C offers a very good value for what it costs, since it has arrived in our country for only 19.99 euros and offers a very interesting range of benefits:
- Color screen with a 1.08-inch OLED panel and a resolution of 128 x 220 pixels (200 nits).
- 130 mAh battery (up to 14 days of use for each charge). Full charge in two hours via USB.

I personally must say that I like the design of the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 betterIn fact, this is the sport activity bracelet that I have been using since the end of last year, and I am very happy with it. If you have a very limited budget but want to get a complete and reliable sports activity bracelet, the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4C is an excellent option.
