After a lot of teasing, today we finally got to see what Xiaomi had up its sleeve. Basically, over the past few weeks, multiple rumors about a fitness product from Xiaomi were making rounds. And surprise surprise, the fitness device, that was launched today in India, is none other than the Mi Band 3i.
From what I can make out, the Mi Band 3i is simply a bit toned-down version of the Mi Band 3. It just lacks the heart rate tracker to be specific. Other than that, the device is pretty much the same.
You still get a 0.78-inch AMOLED B&W display. The offered resolution of the screen is 128 x 80 pixels. Right below the screen, there’s a capacitive button. It allows the users an alternative way to navigate the UI. And as there is no heart rate tracker on this on, the rear of the device only has pogo pins for charging.
App wise, you get features such as sleep tracking, calorie tracker, idle alert, phone locking and unlocking, app notification, and many more. The device comes with Bluetooth 4.2. Thus, it can easily connect to your device and show you various notifications.
The device is powered by a 110mAh battery. It will take around two and a half hours to fully charge the device. And once fully-charged, the claim is that the fitness band should give you a solid 20 days of usage.
Xiaomi Miband 3i Price, Availability
This feature-packed fitness tracker is priced at an insane INR. 1,299. It is available for purchase in India on Mi.com. However, users still have the option to buy Mi Band 3 via the same website at INR. 1,799. Now, it’s up to the users to decide whether they think that a heart rate tracker is an absolute necessity for them or not.
Having said that, the previous experiences with Mi Band and the price at which the 3i is available, this new fitness band will probably give you proper value for money.
For those wanting to buy Miband 3i in Nepal, you should be able to get in from grey stores in 2-3 weeks’ time for around NRs. 2000-NRs. 2500.
