Ksiaomi Mi Band 3 reviews



Xiaomi celebrated his eighth birthday by introducing Mi 8 flagship, MIUI 10 and Mi Band 3 carrying. As favorites for smart phones, we were pleased to see the new phone with Snapdragon 845 and what, but the band kept us buzzing a few days later.

Obviously, the gadget was a hit on the domestic market, because when we were at the Mi in Shanghai two weeks later, the employee sadly explained that all Mi-3 devices were sold.

In the end, the device managed to reach our office, so our impressions are there.


The retail package is a simple white box with a transparent lid without surprise inside – a soft strap, the Mi Band 3 itself and a small USB dongle for charging. Fortunately, if you own Mi Band 2, you can use your charger remarkably – although Mi Band 3 is a difficult device that requires frequent charging.


Unpacking it, you notice a bigger screen – it's OLED and it's up from 0.42 "to 0.78". The front is curved for better aesthetics and nothing else, because it's not the whole touch-sensitive thing, just a small rectangle in the center.

The device has managed to grow in size, but the tape has the same print, so while you can not place Mi Band 2, you effectively have the same size device on your wrist.

The HR sensor has developed and is now faster and more precise, according to Xiaomi. There is also an accelerometer used to calculate your steps. If you are the type of person working with all kinds of electronics on your body, do not rely on Mi Band 3 because the purpose is everyday use and does not help you to prepare for the Skirunning World Series.

Overall, Xiaomi followed the old saying "If it's not interrupted, do not fix it." He worked perfectly well and nothing happened – just minor improvements.


The screen is the biggest change on Mi band 3. Now you can drag up and down, left and right to pass through panels – pedometer, distance, burned calories, battery capacity, weather forecast, exercise shooting.

It takes a day or two to find out how the button works – one touch to get to the home screen with the clock, the long buttons activate the selected option.

We have to give Xiaomi that the button on Mi Band 3 is a little curved – it's less impervious to the eyes, compared to the predecessor.


Since we've touched on different things you can do with the band, let's get into the details. The pulse can be measured at certain intervals so that you can monitor it throughout the day. This is not only looking at how your pulse changes during different activities, but in what situations your hot blood flows so you can not get involved in them.

The pedometer algorithm is more accurate when you are involved in sports. On a tiny screen, distance, duration, and other related metrics in real time appear. Thanks to the rating of 5ATM and IP67, you can swim and move without having to worry about water or sweat.

There is a possibility of measuring your weight, but it works better with the Mi scale, otherwise you have to monitor the input of each measurement manually, and this kills the entire vibe of smart connectivity.

Sleep monitor is something our team is dealing with. The revised Mi Fit app monitors your sleep schedule and REM and explains it by matching visual views. Once you have enough days to follow, you will get suggestions when it's best to get into bed.

Here's a little personal opinion – as I work with a smartphone during the day, I leave Pikel 2 KSL out of the bedroom during the night. My SO relies on the old school alarm clock, but I give it up before it, so I have 3 Band to wake me with a soft sound (which does not feel gently or buzzing if you are in deep sleep, but it still does business).

Like all smart carriers, Mi Band 3 also reads notifications and notifies you of calls. If you turn it off, you may get a little more battery juice because it will vibrate less frequently.

Battery life

Xiaomi made a huge deal with Mi Band 2 and its battery life. When Mi Band 3 is a bit larger, capacity has also risen to 110 mAh. Of course, the touchscreen requires a little more power, but it will be easy to go over two weeks without the need to turn it on.


Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is designed to monitor the basics of your everyday life while you are on the road as little as possible. It's lightweight, unobtrusive and stylish with excellent battery life, so it works perfectly.

As I mentioned, you should not expect the 29-dollar device to be the best assistant in preparing for the New York Marathon. However, for a step counter, a heart monitor, and a sleeper, wrapped in a compact 20g shell, it's as good as you can expect.
