Xiaomi Mi Band 3: Features Overview
The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 features identical design to the Mi Band 2, but the company has added a 2.5D curved glass on top of the 0.78-inch OLED display to make the band look more appealing. The display itself has a resolution of 128 x 80 pixels and it’s still a Black and White one. Also, it’s slightly bigger than the display we saw on the Mi Band 2. The display now shows 3-day weather information something which was missing on the Mi Band 2. Also, the OLED screen is a touch-sensitive one.
One of the highlights of the Mi Band series is the stupendous battery life. The Mi Band 3 has a 110mAh battery and Xiaomi promises a battery life of 20 days with tracking features turned off. Talking about the tracking feature, the Mi Band 3 has a heart rate sensor like the Mi Band 2. And this around, the heart rate tracker monitors your heart data continuously. Other tracking features include sleep monitoring, step count tracker, cycling, swimming, walking and so on.
The Mi Band 3 can be taken under water up to 50 metres for a swim without any hassle.
