Xiaomi Mi Band 3 launched: better and more comfortable than predecessor–price and specifications
The fitness bracelet Mi Band 2 by the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is certainly one of the most popular models in this field. This is mainly due to the low selling price of around 20 euros. Now the manufacturer wants to build on the success and sends for this the third generation of his smart bracelet in the race.
Technically, the Mi Band 3 will not change much. It continues to use an OLED display. However, this is slightly enlarged by the manufacturer and now measures 0.78 inches in the diagonal. The resolution is specified as 128 x 80 pixels. New is the complete glass front, which should make the band look higher. Due to the larger display, the battery has been slightly enlarged. This offers a capacity of 110 mAh. This should make the bracelet for about 20 days without a socket.
Both the heart rate monitor and the pedometer are still on board. Also, the quick replacement of the bracelet will be offered the Mi Band 3 in case, something goes wrong with it. However, the bracelet is more comfortable to wear than the older generation. In addition, it promises an improved seal against water to a depth of 50 meters.
Despite the improvements, Xiaomi will not increase the price. This remains almost unchanged at around 22 euros. In addition to the color black, you get red and blue options as well. There is no word when Mi Band 3 will come to the market.
