Xiaomi Mi Band 3

Xiaomi has launched Xiaomi Mi Band 3 at a launch event held in Shenzhen, China. The launch of the Mi Band 3 is as per the expected lines. Banggood has listed the Mi Band 3 with “Alert Me On Arrival” button. Moreover, the product is currently under restocking.

The Mi Band 3, meanwhile, is listed on Geekbuying for $59.99 instead of the retail price of $99.99. The tracker also ships with an ability to wake up the strap upon lifting of wrists.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 features an OLED display with a heart rate monitor. Moreover, the fitness tracker provides support for Bluetooth 4.2 technology. The third edition of the Mi Band has been released in Black, Blue, and Red color variants.

The first impression after looking at the images reveals soft straps with an excellent finish. We can see several holes on the strap using which you can adjust the position of the band.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is equipped with a 0.78-inch OLED touchscreen with support for pedometer, heart rate, sleep tracking including sedentary reminder. The band is capable of detecting the quality of the sleep and daily step count. The band is manufactured in such a way as to resist underwater up to 50 meters swimming. It is also waterproof like that of the previous counterparts.

According to company sources, the Mi Band 3 will deliver 20 days of standby time. We have seen exceptional standby time with Mi Band 2 and Xiaomi carves a niche in this segment even though the gadget provides support for heart rate.
