The Mi Band 3 was first launched in China back in late May this year and is the successor to the Mi Band 2that was launched back in June 2016. We have shared our hands-on with the Xiaomi Mi Band 3. The Mi Band 3 features a 0.78-inch OLED touchscreen display that has a resolution of 128 x 80 pixels. This display not only shows you the time and date but also shows other information like messages and notifications from different apps.

In addition to that, the OLED display on the Mi Band 3 shows you incoming calls so that you don’t have to take your phone out of the pocket to see who’s calling. Not just that, the Mi Band 3 also lets you accept or reject the call. However, it’s needless to say that you have to keep the Mi Band 3 connected to your phone through Bluetooth to be able to perform these functions.

That being said, as the Mi Band 3 is a fitness band, it comes with features like motion tracking and health management. Furthermore, it also tracks different activities like walking, sleeping and running. Apart from that, the Mi Band 3 also features a heart rate sensor that monitors your heart rate.

The Mi Band 3 comes with a 110 mAh battery which Xiaomi says can offer up to 20 days of backup. The band is also water resistant up to 50 meters which means you can keep it strapped to your wrist when going for a shower or a swim.
