1. Mi Band 3

Overall Best Pick
Overall Best Pick
  • Accurate heart rate monitor
  • Exceptional standby time
  • Simplistic and intuitive app

Xiaomi was one of the first companies to bring in a fitness band to the country with their original Mi band. It didn’t have a screen at that time and came with an LED indicator.

The Mi band 3 is the latest and greatest fitness tracker Xiaomi has released in the country.

Improving upon the design and features of its predecessors, the Mi band 3 beats the competition with a punch.

Design and build quality

The Mi band 3 has the same design principle that its younger siblings came with.

The curves around the tracker module is a bit more subtle and look very classy at all angles.

The silicone strap is really lightweight and comfortable to wear around. There are straps in different colours available to purchase from the Mi store.

There is a physical button that is a bit recessed from the body below the display to move back and forth the options on the screen.

The tracker unit itself is made of aluminium alloy and feels durable and solid.

The strap is made of thermoplastic elastomer and is very flexible. Overall, the build quality seems to be excellent for the price.

Display

The Mi band 3 has 0.78-inch OLED display. The display is horizontal and can be read without any problems even under direct sunlight.

Having an OLED display has other benefits such as improved efficiency when it comes to battery consumption.

The visibility is great in indoors but in direct sunlight, you might have to strain your eyes a bit, nothing like a deal breaker though.

Once you pair the Mi band 3 with your smartphone over Bluetooth, calls and text notifications can be seen on the screen and can be rejected or marked as read right away by clicking the physical button.

Sensors

The Mi band 3 packs in all of the necessary sensors that too in excellent quality.

The active heart rate monitor is very accurate and measures the metabolism rate on par with other expensive fitness bands.

Usual features such as step counter, sleep tracker and burned calorie calculator are present and work pretty well.

The Mi band app that can be downloaded from the Apple app store and Google Play store is very simplistic and provides a lot of info on your workouts and other performance metrics.

The data measurements are very accurate and provide an accurate summary of your daily workout schedule.

Miscellaneous

The Mi band 3 edition is water resistant and comes with an IP67 certification. This means that you can take this device out with you no matter what the outside weather.

With the tight integration with the smartphone ecosystem, this device can be used as a password replacement when it is paired with your Android smartphone.

With the band in hand, you can unlock the device without having to enter a password.

The 0.78-inch OLED display has a quick glance feature that will turn on when you look at it and provide a summary of notifications.

It also can display the weather in your locality and the future forecasts at the flick of the wrist.

Battery life

This is where the Mi band 3 trumps other smart bands by a long distance.

The 110mAh Li-ion battery inside is not the largest capacity battery found on a fitness tracker, but with excellent hardware optimizations, Xiaomi has managed to make this device lasts up to 20 days on a single charge.

The only gripe with the charging of this device is that the tracker module has to be taken out of the strap and fitted onto the separate charger which is a cumbersome process.

Verdict

The Mi band 3 is the perfect device for you if you are into jogging.

The accurate pedometer and the long-lasting battery life will make this device one of your favourites in no time for sure.

If you don’t mind the omission of a heart rate sensor, this cheap fitness tracker is one of the best in the market priced under Rs.2,000.

There is inbuilt USB port within the tracker so that you can directly plug into your laptop or power bank to get it charged.

Having a static heart rate monitor helps you to manually check the reading yourselves by activating the sensor from the menu. This saves a lot of battery unlike those premium fitness trackers featuring always-on heart rate sensing.
