A few days back, Xiaomi started teasing the launch of a new wearable, and today it has finally taken the wraps off its newest fitness band, dubbed the Mi Band 3i. The Mi Band 3i is a successor to the Mi Band HRX and a cheaper version of the Mi Band 3 that follows the same design language and offers a bunch of features at a comparatively much lesser price.
The Mi Band 3i features a 0.78-inch AMOLED touch-screen display with a 128 x 80 pixels screen resolution, up to 300 nits of brightness, and an anti-fingerprint coating on top. It has a polycarbonate body with a TPU strap, and it claims to offer up to 5ATM (50 meters) of water resistance. The band uses Bluetooth 4.2 LE to connect with devices and includes a 110mAh battery that offers up to 20 days of battery life and takes around 2.5 hours to fill up the juice.
In terms of activity tracking, the Mi Band 3i allows for monitoring sleep and fitness, in addition to features such as step and calorie counter along with activity tracking, including running, cycling, walking, and treadmill. Besides activity tracking, the band also provides other features like raise to view notifications (texts, calls, etc), set alarms and reminders, view weather forecast, and more. However, one feature that the Mi Band 3i lacks is the ability to track heart rate. As, unlike the Mi Band 3, it does not include a heart rate sensor.
Additionally, users can also get a detailed look at their fitness goals, sleep habits, and overall weekly progress and act accordingly using the Mi Fit app, available on both Android and iOS.
