The Xiaomi Mi Band 3, which is one of the most-awaited products from Xiaomi this year was launched at the company’s major event on May 31 in China. The wearable went on for sale in China for the first time on June 5, and today, Xiaomi announced that they have shipped more than one million units of Mi Band 3 in just 17 days.

As mentioned, the Mi Band 3 was one of the much-awaited products from Xiaomi this year. The one million shipment number doesn’t come as a surprise because the Mi Band 2 and the original Mi Band also sold in a massive number. Having said that, Xiaomi is also the second largest wearable brand across the globe, sitting behind Apple, as per the data released by Canalys for Q1 2018. And guess what, Xiaomi shipped 3.7 million wearable devices in Q1 2018 and the majority of them are Mi Band devices itself.

The Mi Band 3′ success is an expected one, thanks to the affordable price tag of 169 Yuan (approx. Rs 1,774) and the company even stated that a new variant with NFC support for payments would be launched in China very soon for 199 Yuan (approx. Rs 2,089). The Mi Band 3 is available only in China at the moment, but it’s expected to make its way to the Indian market next month.

Talking about the features of the Xiaomi Mi Band 3, it has a monochrome display with a home button for navigation purposes. Xiaomi promises a 20-day battery life with the Mi Band 3, down from the 30-day battery life promise of the Mi Band 2. The Mi Band 3 comes with sleep tracking, step counting, heart rate monitoring and several other features. It can be connected to Android or iOS smartphone using the Mi Fit application.
