We were the first to show you the functions of the new Xiaomi Mi Band 3 before Xiaomi even talked about its existence. Just a few hours ago we finally experienced the moment in which Xiaomi published on its social networks a rendering of a bracelet. Here is the first image of the My Band 3.
Although we had already released their functions and we knew how it would be in broad strokes, the first render of a device is always important. A few weeks ago we showed you what appeared to be a new bracelet on the wrist of the CEO of Xiaomi. We did not know for sure if it was the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 or not but now we can confirm it.

As you can see, it seems that the button has happened to be below the screen. The design is very similar to that of the My Band 3 as we already pointed out at the time but, in this case, they would change the functions and quality of the screen.
Do we confirm their functions?
Now that we can confirm that the information we had is correct, it is time to think about the functions. We know you will have weather information and an interface similar to Wear OS in what to change between one activity and another. The speculations were as to whether or not it will be submersible, something that users of the previous versions of the Mi Band have been asking for forever.
Now we just need to know the price. Greater benefits and technology also imply a higher cost. This could eliminate one of the main attractions of this bracelet, its price/performance ratio. Although in this price range Xiaomi is unrivaled, it remains to be seen if the bracelet will give sufficient incentives to the users of the previous My Band so that once again they can cash in and leave their money in another quantifier.
