this is very strange. it looks like the simple global version. are there any NFC logo on the left/right side of the box? and if you open it in Mi Fit is it named as Mi Smart Band 5 NFC or just Mi Smart Band 5?

after pairing you will also see Cards menu on the band's menu if it's an NFC capable variant.

So your mi band 5 can use nfc or not???
i guess it's just a bug or incorrect naming. or xiaomi hidden the NFC function. an RFID card reader can tell if it has NFC or not. but i guess not.

Guys, NFC is present in some CN version only (supports AliPay only). Device is not secure in EU standards.

But what for some people want it in such thing? This is for sport, not for shopping :D Also paying with a watch looks... hmmm... very stupid... :ROFLMAO: :LOL:

Alipay not require NFC.

This thread isn't to know your opinion about features, it's a thread about known features.

Guys?
Does REM Tracking work with Global version? If it lacks some sensors (or it just lacks the support for them) in comparision with China version...then?

Thanks a lot, just wanna make it clear.

Global == CN version w/o NFC, they both have the same sensors, so this mode should work exactly as expected :)
