Xiaomi Mi Band 3 with 20 days battery life, water resistance announced

During the same event at Shenzen, Xiaomi has unveiled the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition along with the latest MIUI 10 that now boasts of the company’s newest Xiao AI voice assistant. The Mi Band 2 successor is another one of the additions which now comes in two new variants.

Xiaomi has taken the wrappers of the Mi Band 3 at its event in Shenzen, China where it also unveiled the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition, all of which run on the latest MIUI 10 interface. The successor to the Mi Band 2 which was released a couple years ago features a 0.78-inch OLED monochrome screen that Xiaomi claims will offer a better experience when viewing messages and notification. The Mi Band 3 will first arrive in China for an asking price of 169 yuan (approx. Rs 1,780) and the product will likely be launched in India soon.

The Mi Band 3 while still retaining the looks of its predecessor is designed in such a way that the tracker unit doesn’t slip away from the watch band, which was being criticized about in the Mi Band 2. The rounded design with a recessed button below the display is expected to give a better feedback and certainly stand out from the other fitness trackers in the lineup.

In terms of additional features, the Mi Band 3 can now display your messages and answer your calls right off its display. There’s a weather forecast notification as well as an alarm clock which can both be accessed through the touchscreen of the activity tracker. The Mi Band is equipped with a heart rate monitor and can also count the number of steps you took for an entire day as part of its health-based functions.

The Mi Band 3 will come with an improved battery that will last you up to 20 days on a single charge. The fitness tracker would also be resistant to dust and water to up to 50 meters, meaning the device could well be used for swimming. There’s a more expensive version of the device which comes with NFC support as well.

Xiaomi will start selling the Mi Band 3 for a price of 169 yuan (approx. Rs 1,780) while the NFC supported version is expected to sell for around 199 yuan (approx. Rs 2,099). All Mi Band 3 variants will be available in Black, Blue and Red colour versions to choose from.
