The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is a remake of Mi Band 2 , which now features a larger display, improved usability, stronger water protection and a new design. It offers several new features to his predecessor, and you now have the opportunity to get it at an interesting price.
Design & Appearance
The Mi Band 2 has been a great success for its simplicity and its difficult price to beat. On the design side there are no big surprises: the Mi Band 3 is slightly larger and can be considered an improved version of its predecessor but continues to adopt a removable rubber strap and a button on the front. What makes the difference and catches the eye right away is the 0.78 inch OLED screen with 128×80 pixel resolution. This is a capacitive display that allows you to manage notifications and messages and, above all, allows you to navigate the menu using gestures.
This is a novelty compared to its predecessor, which was only controllable via the capacitive button. In addition, the water resistance has been improved and the tape should be waterproof to 5 atm , which would correspond to a depth of 50 meters. In addition to the slightly different design, the Tracker also has more features than its predecessor. So it is now possible to accept calls via the bracelet . Particularly interesting for the Asian or Chinese market is that there will be a second version of the band, which also supports NFC and thus cashless payments. Possibly can take place by means of NFC also the coupling between Mi band and Smartphone, which Xiaomi has neither confirmed nor denied so far.
In addition to the new features dominated the Xiaomi Mi Band 3, of course, the familiar features of its predecessor. The heart rate monitor measures the heart rate of the wearer, it would be particularly desirable that a permanent tracking is possible in the in-house app. He should also work a bit more closely now, since Xiaomi has worked well to position the tracker tighter on the arm – essential for a good tracking. The pedometer displays the distance traveled per day in steps and in kilometers. He also gives a recommendation to get up if you have been sitting for a long time. In addition, the wristband will display the time as soon as you raise your wrist to the horizontal. Also a monitoring of the sleep phases and an intelligent alarm clock is of course available again. If you also own a Xiaomi smartphone, you can use Mi Band 3 to unlock your device without password or fingerprint scanning.
Connectivity & Battery
In the meantime the Bluetooth certification for the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 has surfaced! The exact model name is XMSH05HM and Huami Amazfit is registered as a company. So instead of Bluetooth 4.0 now 4.2 is used. Will Mi Band 3 once again outperform the monumental battery life of its predecessor with the new Bluetooth standard? Xiaomi claims that his new Mi band can deliver up to 20 days of battery life. The battery life thus remains the same as that of its predecessor. This is pretty impressive, considering that the Mi Band 3 has a larger OLED display installed.
