I have try other no brand my life intellengce wearable watch but the battery last than 2 month flat but unable to replace the battery. not quite trust the product?
I bought Mi Band 3 a week ago along with Redmi Note 7.
It comes in a little box with plastic, transparent cover. The box contains black strap, charging cable and manual.
The battery was not charged. Initially it took about 2h to charge to 100%.
The connection with the Mi Fit was easy. After the connection, the firmware of the band was updated twice.
The step counter is so f*cking inaccurate. It is triggered simply by moving your hand on the keyboard. (I made about 500 steps while writing this feedback)
You can connect the band with Find Device app and trigger a loud ping signal on the phone.
The strap is very comfortable.
I took a bath with it. Nothing happens to the device. The only cons is that the drops from the shower triggered the touch button and wake it up. For a longer exposure under the shower, the device started to enter through the menus. Nothing terrible happened.
I tried the Heart rate detection along with some other devices to compare the results. All of them gave close values, so I would rate it as accurate function. (FYI, I did not compare it with legit medical devices)
Other functions besides Step counter and Heart rate are Distance and Calories burned. I would not trust the Distance also.
You can connect as many apps as you want to show notifications on the band. No delay. There is a weather menu for next 3 days. You can also mute or reject a call only from the band. You have start/stop timer. Also you can change the sound profile of the phone from the band Â– to turn the sound ON or put it on Silent mode.
Last night I started Automatic heart rate and Sleep assistant which warned me that the battery performance will drop dramatically. For about 12h the battery dropped by 4%.
I would not list pros and cons as itÂ’s very subjective. One thing I like is that touch screen is very, very nice to touch. I found one glitch or bug or whatever it is Â– when you swipe up/down through the menus, the top of the screen flickers ugly.
So far I am very comfortable with the band.
I would consider another feedback after a while if I found something interesting worth sharing.
the Xiaomi band 3 works good, except the bike workout, Everytime the Mi fit app says
Workout paused and after a few minutes Workout restored, The GPS works good 3 green dots and the inernet is on. during the "Workout paused " periods there are gaps on the route map and no distance (km) visable in the app. I think it's a bug in the app Mi fit.
Are there more bikers with this problems ? John eTe
You havenÂ’t mentioned notifications at all! MI Band 3 can deliver notifications from all apps that are enabled on your phone to send notifications, and it works on Android same as on IOS. Calls and SMS (I message on IOS) can show details - caller ID for incoming call and SMS text beside senders name. I personally use this band as notification center primarily.

Anonymous, 12 Nov 2018Don't knock on it until you tried the Apple watch 4. Seriously it's a big difference yeah, big difference, specially how overpriced AW 4 is
vivek, 12 Nov 2018very bad product. battery is very local.Do you own the Band 3? I've had it for a month and it's great value for features. The battery lasts for over a week, what are you talking about?
The only thing the Band 3 needs is more language support, other than that, for $26 it's a steal. Bought one for me and one for my nephew.
Juuhmad Bruh, 12 Nov 2018Better than the apple watch in everyway. And a fraction of the cost.Don't knock on it until you tried the Apple watch 4. Seriously it's a big difference
vivek, 12 Nov 2018very bad product. battery is very local.The hell does that mean?
Dead-Oled, 12 Nov 2018Why no comments on dead OLED, countless mi band 2 users end up with dead OLED and cant view di... moreThis is one reason I upgrade to Amazfit BIP instead (transflective display will never gets old like OLED), but I do watch my friends who bought the version 3 to see if they use a longer lasting OLED screen or not.
I think it is a good device but I have 2 comments
1) in order to read notifications in Arabic, you must change your phone language to Arabic otherwise the notifications appear as question marks
2) it counts steps while I am in the car or bus
Better than the apple watch in everyway. And a fraction of the cost.
Using it for 2 months.. for Rupees 1999 it's a great device.. no complaints..
