Yeah, I'd agree. Get the best 4K TV you can afford. Buy on a sale day, like Black Friday or Boxing Day. For those who want HDMI 2.1 and 120...

Ha ha! (LOL) I had to look up what Broden is... https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Brodened

So OzBargain seems to have become the centre of advice for people who want to take up a career in scalping. Shouldn't this be the place to...

Don't buy. These Samsung headphones are not that good. Despite AKG now being manufactured by Samsung, it's ironic that these headphones are...

Is the US model X900H the same as the X9000H in Australia? Are they one and the same? I'm looking for features such as HDMI 2.1, Auto Low...

There would be no warranty if you buy from a scalper.

If you keep your PS5 for many years, I wonder how much money you'll recoup by selling your disk collection?
21/09/2020 - 20:12
Avoid it? But what if you're in a mad scramble to get a unit before they sell out, and the digital version - with no disk player - is the...

There's nothing to write home about here. The saving is only $13 off the regular price that Amazon charges. The recommend retail price is...

Everyone - ***Everyone*** - with a sore throat in Australia should get a COVID test. It's your civic duty to get tested, not just cover up...

I haven't seen anything about the Mi Bands and Google Pay. I'm skeptical.

A pulse oximeter, in conjunction with a motion detector monitoring your sleep patterns, could potentially alert you if you are developing...

I'm betting that Xiaomi won't have a global payment system operating any time soon.

None of the Mi Bands have inbuilt GPS. But if you carry your phone, the Mi app will read the GPS on your phone to log your runs.

There are some new media reports today with more information about the upcoming Mi Band 5 Pro. It will have the Amazon Alexa assistant, as...

This GearBite sale is not the NFC version. Apart from the the device missing NFC chip (which may not matter), it is also missing the SpO2...

I'd actually been active in Mi Band 5 discussions before this. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/551984 That discussion was before we knew...

Kogan has been selling the Global version (no SpO2 sensor) at prices ranging from $62 to $90. The NFC unit described in this post is a...

Kogan is selling the Global version, which is a different model. The Global version can't ever be updated to measure blood oxygen levels.
01/08/2020 - 10:12
That's a different model. It looks like the non-NFC Chinese model.
01/08/2020 - 10:10
No, you can't use the NFC for payment in Australia. It works with UnionPass and QuickPay. But the NFC model has the pulse oximeter and the...

It's very true. If you go to a hospital, they put a pulse oximeter on your finger (it's like a plastic clip on the tip of your finger). A...

The other activity trackers with pulse oximeter launched in the same way. The Huawei GT2 watch and the Fitbit Charge 3 both launched with...

It's not the 'standard' Chinese version. It's the NFC version. You also get it sent with a courier, with tracking, rather than with China...

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 NFC Version $65.99 + $28.82 Shipping @ Expansys Australia
This deal is significant, as it is the rare 'NFC' version, which is better than the Global version that is usually sold in Australia. The...

The version with no NFC is also the version that has no SpO2 sensor. The SpO2 sensor measures blood oxygen levels, a measure of how well...

AliExpress, a subsidiary of Alibaba aimed at the international market, might be even better. It advertises the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 "with or...

If you want the NFC version, it is sold on Alibaba, a Chinese equivalent of eBay.
