OnePlus

Xiaomi Mi Band 5

The OnePlus Band nails the hardware side of the equation, delivering blood oxygen saturation monitoring along with heart rate and activity tracking. There’s also a 1.1-inch AMOLED screen, 5ATM water resistance, and 13 exercise modes. But the battery life is nowhere as good as the Mi Band 5, and the software needs more polish.

The OnePlus Band has excellent hardware, and you get blood oxygen saturation monitoring, but the battery life is not on par with the Mi Band 5. You also don’t get nearly as many metrics on the software side, and right now, it just doesn’t measure up to what Xiaomi is offering in this segment.
