The only thing “dull” about this in-budget accessory is its monochrome display, but while saving money on the colors, Xiaomi has made sure to not compromise on any other feature, besides ditching the heart rate monitor. Starting from the display itself, featuring a touch display of 0.78 inch AMOLED screen.
Mi Band 3i
On Thursday, Xiaomi launched its new smart band after the much successful Mi Band 4, which was again budget-friendly and loaded with features and specifications like nothing in its price range. The latest launch, Mi Band 3i resembles the Mi band 3 in looks and feel but this time around Xiaomi has really gone minimal with its design and features.
It gets the job done, would be the perfect one-line description about the new Mi Band 3i, it supports Bluetooth v4.2 connectivity and it is water-resistant till 50 meters of depth for 10 minutes, which is not something that is offered often for 1299/-. It may not track your heart-rate, but it tracks your sleep, your events, helps you wake up on time, with quite a physical demonstration, app notifications and you can even manage calls and view messages on it too. Now while you go on about tracking your steps, Mi Band 3i does not just unlock your phone but also has a feature to find your phone with its phone locator.
Most of its features are nothing new but still the package it comes in is what makes it special, even the battery life is claimed to be 20-days long with a 110mAh Li-polymer battery.
The sleep quality monitor and calorie counter are features that were speculated to be left out on a device that is priced in this range, but instead analysis of the quality of you sleep and what you are eating, covers almost all the important aspects of fitness.
As an answer to all your excuses to get up in the morning and going out for a run, Mi Band 3i makes sure that it gives you all that you need without bothering your budget. The band can be pre-ordered now on mi.com now and the shipping will begin from December 10.
