Xiaomi recently launched a new fitness band in India, the Mi Band 3i. This wearable comes with a 5ATM waterproof resistance, an AMOLED touch display, up to 20 days of battery life, step and calorie tracking features, and notification alerts. This Mi Band 3i is a lower version of the Mi Band 3. The latter was released in India last year. While the Mi Band 3i costs less than Mi Band 3, it doesn’t have certain features, such as heart-rate monitoring. The Mi Band 3i comes in only one colour – the classic black.
The device is already out in the market and is ready for immediate shipping. Estimated delivery is between two to four days. Its remarkable feature is its battery life. With an ability to last for about 20 days on a single charge is indeed a major goal. The colour AMOLED display makes life easier as well.

The Mi Band 3i has a sports 0.78-inch (128×80 pixels) Monochrome White AMOLED display. It has 300 nits brightness and a capacitive touch panel. With regards to the battery, the fitness tracker has a 110mAh Li-polymer battery. It is this battery that is known to last nearly three weeks. The device has a two pogo pin charging method. It usually takes about 2.5 hours to be fully charged. The Mi Band 3i comes with support for Bluetooth v4.2 connectivity. It can be paired with smartphones running on Android 4.4 and iOS 9.0 and above.
The strap of the fitness tracker is manufactured using TPU material. The Mi Band 3i comes with 5ATM water-resistant certification as well. Other features of the fitness band include message notifications and viewing, vibrating alarm, call display or rejection, event reminder, idle alert, phone locator, app notifications, and so much more. You can also pair the device to the Mi Fit app. Once done, you would be able to easily track your daily activity and sleep progress. In addition to all this, the Mi Band 3i is designed to efficiently and reliably track your deep sleep, light sleep, and most activities, such as walking, cycling, running, and treadmill. One nice touch here is that you will even be able to take a look at the weather forecast for the next three days.
The 0.78-inch OLED touch screen shows the time in addition to any real-time activities that you log in. Thanks to its 5ATM waterproofing, you can confidently have it on as you dip in for a swim. Do note that it can only last when you swim under 50 meters. The glass is resistant to scratch and comes with an anti-fingerprint coating. The latter makes sure you can see the screen clearly and that it doesn’t get smudged up with your fingerprints. The 3 axis accelerometer tracks a number of activities quite reliably. The dimensions of the tracker are 46.8×18.1×11. It weighs about 20g with the strap. The device is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.
