The highly affordable Mi fitness band from Xiaomi is introducing a new feature: a pulse monitor that can instantly let wearers know their heart rate throughout the day.

The Mi Band Pulse is priced at just $16, which is just $1 above the original Mi Band, which doesn't include the heart rate function. It's an incredibly affordable fitness band, especially compared to many of the larger brand names on the market. The Mi Band Pulse is slightly larger than the Mi Band, and is made of a more durable, long-lasting plastic. In addition to letting users count their steps, keep a diary of their physical activity and calculate their calorie usage, the Mi Band Pulse offers up-to-date heart rate information on the wearer's smartphone.
