One of the cheapest and the best fitness bands available right now in India is the original Mi Band and it is also the best value for money one. It is priced at about Rs. 799 and at this price, it offers excellent built quality and water resistant features. It can track calories, steps and sleep among the other things; it needs synchronisation with the Mi Fit app available on both iPhone and Android mobiles for the user to be able to see any data, as it does not have a display. The band is a very popular fitness device as it offers moderately accurate tracking at a budget price.
