Just to brush you up, the Mi Band 3 features an improved design, hardware, and features as compared to its predecessor. It is still the same pill but now comes with more rounded edges, a concave indent under the screen, and 3 colored bands (orange, blue and black). It uses a 0.78-inch touchscreen which allows you to swipe or hold the entire front of the fitness band instead of being limited to controlling it with a button.
The Mi Band 3 sports a heart-rate sensor, along with its usual health management kit, including step counting, sleep monitoring, and more. The Mi Band 3 also shows sports data in real-time to keep you up-to-date with your running, cycling, and walking stats. It will show you notifications for apps such as WeChat, QQ and more from your phone, while also giving you an option to accept or dismiss calls from the band. The Mi Band 3 is waterproof up to 50 meters and offers a battery life of up to 20 days.
The Mi Band 3 is priced at 169 yuan (approx ₹1,799) in China and is expected to release in India soon.
