We tested the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 5 smart bracelet

Xiaomi’s Mi Smart Band 4 was one of the star gifts of last Christmas and everything points to its successor, the Mi Smart Band 5, this next Christmas campaign will also be very popular. Especially taking into account that this year, due to the effects of the pandemic, the main technology brands have noticed strong increases in the demand for health-related devices, whether for the home, such as air purifiers, or personal, such as smart bracelets.

The Mi Smart Band 5 builds on the design of its predecessor and offers tracking exercise and control of dream 24 hours a day, as well as heart rate. Using the GPS The mobile phone can follow what we do abroad and includes functions such as showing the notifications phone (messages, calls, reminders), control the music we play on it, view weather information or serve as a remote control to take photos with your mobile. It is, in short, an excellent option for those looking for a bracelet to monitor their health and physical activity at a good price.



Design

Like the previous version, the design of the Mi Smart Band 5 is simple and functional and it is very comfortable and light on the wrist. its screen is now larger (Amoled, 1.1 inches and 126×294 resolution), brighter (so it looks better outdoors in sunlight) and also faster response.

At the bottom of the screen there is a little button to turn it on and on the back is the sensor to measure the heart rate and the sensors to connect it to the charger. Included in the box, the charger is magnetic and it fits perfectly on the first try, without having to disassemble the body of the strap.

Xiaomi indicates that the battery can last up to 14 days of continuous use, but if we activate functions such as constant heart rate measurement or sleep monitoring, the load will drop considerably.

Features

In addition to notifications, weather, music control or phone camera, the Mi Smart Band 5 offers support for eleven physical activities– Rowing machine, elliptical, swimming, outdoor running, outdoor cycling, yoga, indoor cycling, skipping rope, treadmill, brisk walking and freestyle. In each of these exercises, monitor each movement, rhythm, heart rate and calories burned.

The heart rate tracking throughout the day (if we activate the measurement 24 hours) it will notify us if it detects any irregularity and the monitoring of the dream It includes parameters such as REM or naps and offers tips to improve its quality if it notices that we are not resting well.

The Mi Smart Band 5 also includes exercises breathing and monitoring of stress (with tips to control it in case of high peaks).

All this is completed with a functionality called DAD (intelligent personal activity), an index that the device calculates with the user’s personal data to suggest activities from there to improve their score and, with it, their physical condition.

Users have one more option at their disposal to control their menstrual cycles and the ovulation phases, with recording and reminders.

Mi Fit app

Compatible with iOS and Android, the Xiaomi application allows you to configure the bracelet (the synchronization is very fast) and keep track of both the activity and the state of health. From there it also connects with the phone’s GPS to measure physical exercise outside the home.

Worth?

As we said at the beginning, the Mi Smart Band 5 is a very attractive option for those interested in a device with an affordable price, simple but complete, to control their physical activity and health.

The exercise measurement is very good and also the heart rate, stress or quality of sleep. It connects well to the phone’s GPS and the Bluetooth connection is also very stable. As we have also mentioned, it is very comfortable, withstands splashes, rain and is submersible up to 50 meters. And, although we have not dropped it to the ground to check its resistance, it seems solid enough to withstand the occasional fall.

* The device has been loaned for a two week trial.

Biden borders on victory as Trump defies scrutiny in four states

The Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is on the verge of victory in the US elections, while his rival, President Donald Trump, on Wednesday, November 4, 2002, challenged the scrutiny in four key states as they were reduced your reelection options.

By winning in the key states of Michigan Y WisconsinAccording to the projections of the main media, Biden added 264 delegates to the Electoral College and is one step away from achieving the 270 delegates who give the keys to the White House, in front of the 214 that accumulates Trump.

However, the president and his campaign insisted on their victory options and asked for a recount of the votes in Wisconsin, in addition to presenting demands in Michigan Y Pennsylvania to stop the scrutiny and pressure the Supreme Court to intervene in the latter state and asked that possible votes cast after the deadline be located and invalidated in Georgia.

The pandemic effect

Voting concluded Tuesday night as scheduled, but many states sometimes take days to count all votes. There was a large increase in suffrage by mail nationwide, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The controversies over the votes were the end of a virulent campaign that unfolded in the middle of a pandemic that has killed more than 233,000 Americans and has put millions more out of work. The country has also faced months of unrest related to protests against racism and the police brutality.

Supporters of both candidates expressed anger, frustration and fear at the lack of clarity about when the election would be resolved.

Trump continued to launch unsupported accusations about the vote-counting process via Twitter on Wednesday, hours after appearing at the White House and declaring victory in an election that was far from decided. So much Facebook as Twitter they alerted about many publications of the president to promote misleading statements.

“We are on our way to winning the election. Frankly, we won this election,” Trump said before launching an unprecedented attack on the electoral process by a sitting president.

“This is a fraud against the American people. We want the laws to be used properly, so we will go to the Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop,” he added. without providing evidence to support these claims or explain how you will fight the results in court.

At popular vote nationwide, Biden comfortably led Trump on Wednesday, with a few 3 million more votes. The Republican beat Hillary Clinton in 2016 thanks to her winning in crucial states, even though she got about 3 million fewer votes.

Dozens arrested in New York in protests against President Trump

Dozens of people were arrested Wednesday in New York during demonstrations in Manhattan in rejection of the Donald Trump Administration and in which they requested the recount of all the votes of the presidential elections.

At around 8:00 p.m. local time (Same as Ecuador and 01:00 GMT on Thursday), the protesters walked the streets surrounding Washington Square Park, in the southwest area of ​​the Big Apple, shouting “No Trump, No KKK (Ku Klux Klan), No Facist USA “and” There is no justice, there is no peace. Damn racist policeman “, when the agents, mounted on bicycles, arrested several of them for occupying the road.

Brexit treaty: Von der Leyen sees “good progress” – Politics –


EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen

EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen sees “good progress” in talks about an EU trade pact with Great Britain. But the important points of contention remain the creation of fair competition conditions and the fishing rights of EU fishermen in British waters, said von der Leyen on Thursday in Brussels. “We are now in a critical phase.” It is about a free trade agreement from 2021, i.e. for the period after the Brexit transition phase.

EU Council President Charles Michel said that it would probably be possible to assess the situation next week. “We will hopefully see positive developments in the next few days.” The negotiators on both sides traveled from London to Brussels on Thursday, where negotiations are to continue until at least Sunday.

The treaty is intended to avert tariffs and reduce trade barriers if Great Britain leaves the EU internal market and the customs union at the turn of the year. The British government had temporarily declared the negotiations over, but returned to the negotiating table last week. The time is now extremely short because the text has yet to be ratified.

Three points were always particularly controversial in the negotiations: the EU demand for equal environmental, social and state aid rules to prevent unfair competition; Arbitration rules for possible breaches of contract; and access for EU fishermen to UK waters. When it came to fishing, France in particular had long been vehemently demanding unchanged fishing rights. Most recently, Paris had loosened its stance, as people familiar with the negotiations confirmed at the end of the week.

EU banking regulator ESMA: Brexit interim solution for stocks

WITHu One of the big unresolved questions about Brexit is how the EU will deal with access to the London financial center. After the transition period expires at the end of the year, the UK will become a third country. The market access of British financial service providers to the EU then depends on whether the EU classifies British financial market regulation as equivalent – in technical jargon equivalent – to its own. Only when this equivalency decision has been made can investors buy and sell shares in London, among other things, at least from companies that are listed on both the island and the mainland. These include the pharmaceutical group Astra Zeneca, the media group Relx, the travel company TUI and the parent company of Iberia and British Airways.

The equivalence decision is a long time coming. The European Commission emphasizes that there is no connection between the difficult negotiations on the post-Brexit relationship between both sides and the decision on stock exchange equivalence. The reason for the delay is that there is still a lack of clarity about future British financial market regulation. However, in the dispute with Switzerland over a new framework agreement with the EU, the Commission used the equivalence decision as a means of pressure. This is one of the reasons why there has been growing concern in the Member States for some time that at the end of the year this point too will be in ruins.

Therefore, the relief is likely to be great that the EU securities supervisory authority Esma in Paris has now issued a transitional regulation for at least some of the double-listed companies. Esma said it was about minimizing market disruptions after the United Kingdom’s final withdrawal from the internal market. The authority therefore allows European investors to trade double-listed shares with a European ISIN in London next year – but with one important restriction: this only applies to securities traded in pounds. We can therefore only speak of a minimal solution.

According to Esma, it is less than 50 shares. The trading volume of these papers is below 1 percent of EU equity trading. They were not systematically traded by European investors, but rather irregularly on British stock exchanges, the supervisory authority announced. The exemption can only come into force if the British financial regulator FCA agrees. But this is a matter of form. There is still no solution for stocks that are double-listed in euros. This applies not least to Irish companies such as the airline Ryanair, the insulation technology manufacturer Kingspan or the “Bank of Ireland”. Last year Esma put the number of these papers at more than 6,200. Financial service providers and investors should not have much hope that Esma will issue a transitional regulation for these shares as well. You have already done the “maximum possible”, stressed the authority.

Securities supervisors interfere in Brexit talks | Markets | 28.10.2020

The city on the Thames has blossomed into the EU’s financial hotspot over the years. Numerous banks, payment service providers and fintechs have their headquarters or at least strategically important anchor points in the British capital. Numerous blue chip stocks are listed on the London Stock Exchange. But when the United Kingdom leaves the EU, the financial center of London will also become part of a third country after the transition period ends at the end of the year. Which means: The market access of British financial service providers to the EU then depends on whether they classify the British financial market regulation as equivalent to their own, according to the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” (FAZ).

Only when this so-called equivalence decision has been made can investors from the EU continue to buy and sell shares in London. So far, however, no decision is in sight. The reason for the delay is that there is still a lack of clarity about future British financial market regulation, reports the FAZ.

A message from Paris is therefore all the easier for investors: The EU securities supervisory authority Esma has now issued a transitional regulation for at least some of the double-listed companies, according to the FAZ. Esma said it was about minimizing market disruptions after the United Kingdom’s final withdrawal from the internal market.

Just a little consolation
However, the decision only applies to securities traded in pounds sterling – and thus to fewer than 50 shares. The trading volume of the papers is less than one percent of the EU share trade, reports the FAZ. The stocks would only be traded irregularly on the British stock exchange by European investors. There is still no solution for stocks that are double-listed in euros. According to its own statement, however, Esma has already done the “maximum possible”. (fp)

FDP calls for permanent commercial court in Germany

Set-justice

Vying for economic processes: The FDP wants to establish a permanent commercial court in Germany.

Berlin The European market for cross-border judicial services has been dominated by London in recent years. Legal experts assume that Great Britain will lose its dominant position as a place of jurisdiction for international trade and economic processes after Brexit.

The FDP sees a great opportunity for Germany here. German law enjoys high recognition worldwide. “As a judicial location for companies, Germany only plays a subordinate role in an international comparison,” said parliamentary group vice Stephan Thomae to the Handelsblatt. “Proceedings with high amounts in dispute fill the state coffers of others, and a further development of the law remains in place.” Brexit, for example, offers the opportunity to make the Federal Republic more attractive as a place of jurisdiction.

In a position paper, Thomae has drawn up an “Agenda for Germany as a legal location”. The most important point in this is the establishment of a separate international commercial court. According to Thomaes, “disputes arising from international commercial contracts with high amounts in dispute will be negotiated by professional judges and English will be used in full as the language of court and proceedings”.

According to the position paper, this dish can be located at popular international hubs such as Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg or Munich. Thomae considers the previous system of special chambers at regional courts, where professional judges judge together with voluntary commercial judges, to be out of date.

The Union is skeptical of the FDP initiative. “I am very much in favor of the internationalization of commercial jurisdiction in Germany,” said CDU legal politician Jan-Marco Luczak to the Handelsblatt. The possibility of negotiating economic processes in English “would massively strengthen Germany as a judicial location”. However, the creation of an international commercial court would be “a thick board for which many preliminary questions would have to be clarified”.

EU neighboring countries have already positioned themselves

Tilman Niedermaier from the corporate law firm CMS sees it similarly. It would be important, for example, whether, and in what language, decisions by such a court of justice are open to appeal. “If the language has to be changed from English to German within the other instances, the possibility of having the first instance in English becomes less attractive,” said Niedermaier.

The CDU politician Luczak also favors the introduction of chambers for international commercial matters at the regional courts. Some federal states such as Hesse and Hamburg have already set up English-speaking commercial courts specializing in commercial disputes. From November onwards, Baden-Württemberg will offer two places of jurisdiction for commercial proceedings.

The catch: although negotiations are in English, pleadings and judgments are still only available in German. The Courts Constitution Act would have to be amended for a completely English trial. The Federal Council has already made several attempts to do this. A draft law is still untreated in the Bundestag administration.

For experts, this is not understandable because neighboring EU countries such as France, the Netherlands or Belgium have already positioned themselves with newly established international trade courts. “In Germany, the topic has so far not found a comparably high priority,” said the federal manager of the German Association of Judges, Sven Rebehn.

“Because of the export strength of the medium-sized German economy, there is a high practical need to gear civil courts more closely to international trade disputes.”

Rebehn criticized the fact that the “model experiments” of individual regional courts with English-speaking civil chambers had not yet found a large number of visitors. His suggestion: “A concerted approach by the federal and state governments would be needed in order to bundle the competencies for international business processes at some locations in a meaningful way.”
