The Mi Band 5 teasers reveal that it will arrive in four official colors including; yellow, red, green, and black. The “Professional sensor upgrade” is basically a new blood-oxygen saturation sensor (SpO2) which would help in tracking stress and breathing. Alexa support has also been previously reported, but it wouldn’t have a speaker for audible replies from Alexa.
