Unfortunately COVID-19 continues to rage across the five continents. It is because of that any preventive measure against this is essential, something that Xiaomi and Amazfit are already working on.
And it seems that, as they anticipate us from AndroidPTR, Xiaomi is already working on a new update for Mi Fit that will provide its Xiaomi Mi Band ability to detect coronavirus symptoms.
Without going any further, several lines of code from Xiaomi’s own application reveal a new algorithm that would be able to detect a possible fever, taking into account our body temperature.
In itself, this novelty would arrive for the Xiaomi Mi Band 1, Mi Band 2, Mi Band 3, Mi Band 4, Mi Band 5 and the recently launched Amazfit Band 5. For this, this new function would be based on our own heart rate, so its accuracy will not be perfect, but preventive.
In addition, according to these first details, the Mi Fit application will allow us to compare the temperature obtained by the Xiaomi Mi Band to other temperatures obtained with a specialized device. With this, Xiaomi will try adjust any margin of error so that the measurement is as faithful as possible.
In short, a very interesting functionality, that although it is not completely perfect, it doeswill help fight this pandemic It continues to wreak havoc on virtually the entire world.
