Xiaomi’s latest fitness tracker – the Mi Band 3 – is going on sale in India today on Amazon.in and Mi.com. Priced at Rs 1,999, this is the first sale of the Mi Band 3 and it remains to be seen how long it will last. In any case, you can follow this link to get in the queue to buy the tracker.
The Mi Band 3 comes with a larger 0.78-inch capacitive OLED touchscreen with a 128×80 pixel resolution. This means you don’t have to rely on only the touch button, but can swipe or perform gestures on the entire screen to navigate and explore available options.
The Mi Band 3 weighs a mere 20 grams but packs in improved hardware, as well as design and software features. It’s carrying forward the same pill-shaped design as the Mi Band 2, now with more rounded edges that makes it susceptible to scratches.
The Mi Band 3 also features a heart-rate sensor at the bottom, along with Xiaomi’s usual health management kit. This time around the heart-rate monitor can do continuous monitoring and show you the data in the companion Mi Band app.
The band is also capable of showing you app or call notifications, along with activity tracking info on the tracker’s screen. You can use the Mi Band 3 to monitor sleep, track sports data in real-time, view notification content, and reject calls from your wrist itself.
The Mi Band 3 also sports a bigger 110mAh battery in comparison to the 70mAh battery we’ve seen on its predecessor. Xiaomi boasts about the 20-day battery life of its new fitness tracker. It’s also water resistant up to 50 meters, which is another plus for swimmers or people who work outdoors. You can watch our Mi Band 3 review to know more about Xiaomi’s new fitness band:
