- Notifications & Application
The design of the Mi Band 3 is eye-catching and contains a lot of features which is obviously an upgrade from older Mi Band 2,
The screen size of the Mi Band 3 is bigger than the other Mi Band versions, it has a screen size of just 0.78 inch stylishly curved to fit on any wrist irrespective of gender. It features an OLED display with a high pixel density at 193ppi.
The screen display is very bright enabling you to view contents on the screen even under heavy sunshine.
Furthermore, the Mi Band 3 has very little weight, one of the lightest fitness smartwatches across the world.
Mi Band 3 is water-resistant up to 5ATM, this means that this device is water-resistant and you can wear the Mi Band 3 while swimming, under the shower, under the rain without worrying about the device getting damaged.
One notable thing about the Mi Band series is the long battery life. The Mi Band 3 is not left out in this case, it has a lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 110mAh. on standby, you should expect a battery life of about 20 days, while on heavy/mixed usage, expect a battery life of about 10days.
The battery can be charged via a USB charger which takes roughly about two hours to charge up fully.
Mi Band 3 like I pointed out earlier comes with a handful of upgrades from the Mi band 2. It has a smarter pedometer for tracking activities such as steps you have taken, distance covered, calories burnt and other fitness activities.
It comes with a much sensitive heart rate sensor for heart rate monitoring and can also analyze the general health of the heart.
There is also a sleep pattern tracker, which keeps tracks of sleeping time, awake time, deep sleep…overall the Mi Band 3 is very smart and provides more accurate fitness stats/metrics than the older versions.
Pairing Mi Band 3 with a compatible smartphone via the Mi Fit app will give you more access to a huge list of other functions that you will probably find very useful.
