Xiaomi sponsors Mi Smart Bands for FitSlim’s winning team

Entries for FitSlim 2021 have opened, and already we are seeing people across the country lining up to take part in this year’s eight-week challenge.

As usual, the FitSlim winners will walk away with arms full of prizes, sponsored by Run/Walk For Life’s partners.

We are extremely happy to announce that tech giant Xiaomi will be joining us as a sponsor for the 2021 challenge, which starts on 6 September.

When it comes to tech, Xiaomi is no new kid on the block, and over the past couple of years, the company has grown to be one of the leading tech brands in the world. Rated in the 338th place on Fortune’s Global 500, Xiaomi is now officially the second-largest smartphone brand worldwide in terms of shipment.

Xiaomi’s smartphones and smart technology like the Mi TV Stick and Mi Robot Vacuum Mop have taken the South African market by storm.  

The Mi Smart Band 6 is the latest Xiaomi wearable to hit the local market, and is already being praised by athletes for the innovation in the device.

This nifty device has a built-in PPG biosensor, which measures the heart rate, keeping track of ups and downs when exercising and resting. It also features 19 new fitness modes such as HIIT, Basketball, Boxing, and Zumba. Exercise duration, calories burned and heart rate are clearly visible at a glance, making for more efficient exercise.

The winning group in the Teams category will each walk away with a Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6!
