The new Xiaomi Mi Band 3 has retained recognizable features of the design of the second generation. In particular, it has a large round button, and the gadget itself is made in the form of a small capsule, inserted into a silicone strap. On the back, there is a heart rate sensor, which is necessary for analyzing the user’s activity.
The front of the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 has a convex shape. A significant part of the front panel is a touch-sensitive 0.78-inch OLED display. The device is controlled by means of svays and touches on the screen, and the above button is needed to return back to the usual tapu or to confirm the action with a long press. All this allowed to significantly expand the capabilities of the tracker.
Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is able not only to monitor the physical activity of the owner but also to report incoming calls and new notifications. Thanks to the enlarged display, it displays a portion of the messages, the names of the contacts on call, the weather, and other useful information.
The capacity of the built-in battery is not disclosed, but apparently, it will suffice for less time in comparison with its predecessor. The manufacturer promises more than 20 days of battery life of the device without recharging.
The gadget is protected from water and can withstand immersion to a depth of 50 meters.
Another feature of Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is the availability of the NFC module. This means that the bracelet can be used to pay for purchases, as it is implemented in smartphones.
The cost of Xiaomi Mi Band 3 in China is about $ 26. The version with NFC will cost $ 31.
