We continue to hear news of the annual event held by Xiaomi in Shenzhen. Now it’s the turn of the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 , the most anticipated activity bracelet of the year, which has finally been presented to the world after several months of rumors and leaks of all kinds.
Xiaomi has no intention of changing the strategy that has led them to be one of the manufacturers of wearables that more devices sell worldwide. That is why, from this third generation of the bracelet, we can expect a contained price, the essential characteristics of any smart bracelet … and the odd surprise that Xiaomi has managed to keep up until now.
Just take a first look at the bracelet, it is very clear that it is an accessory of the Mi Band series. The design is practically traced to the second generation, and the only difference is found in the glass of the screen, something more curved than in the previous model. Of course, we still find resistance to water, and it will be possible Swim with the bracelet at a depth of up to 50 meters or 5 ATM. As for the strap, it is made of hypoallergenic silicone, and you can choose between several different colors.
And speaking of the screen, Xiaomi proudly announces that it is an OLED panel much better than the previous one, with a resolution of 128 x 80 pixels that translates into more useful space to show information and a much higher brightness level. At the bottom, there is the touch button through which to interact with the bracelet by gestures or beats.
At the functional level, we find what we expected to find from this bracelet. It will be possible receive notifications and calls, and of course is able to monitor our physical activity through the different sensors it has , including the heart rate reader. It also monitors our dream, and Xiaomi promises a duration of Battery up to 20 days thanks to a capacity of 110 mAh. We will not miss Bluetooth either, this time under version 4.2.
But the best of all is, without a doubt, its price. 169 Yuan, or what is the same, 22 euros by one of the most complete activity wristbands that exist. But that’s not all, there will be a Special edition with NFC chip enabled to make mobile payments, whose price goes up to 26 euros to change.
