Mi Band 3 Review: Good Just Got Better
by mitch002


It's about time that Xiaomi released the world's favorite / best selling wearable of all time, presenting the 3rd iteration of the famous Mi Band Series, the Mi Band 3! Xiaomi has launched this new gadget on its 8th anniversary and also the launch of the Mi 8 flagship. This gadget immediately took the launch by storm as demands of this new fitness band soar immediately and its quite a bit hard to secure one.

Xiaomi has now deployed OLED technology on this band which is a major revamp and upgrade to the said fitness band. It has also added lots of new function for us to use especially to those sports enthusiast.


Automatic sleep detection and pedometer are some basic function carried over from the Mi Band 2, but it has added some new ones like you can take it for a 50 Meter deep swim without problem, the 20 days battery endurance is also a good sign for this little band as well, but it will vary once you use GPS running of course.


Instant messaging viewing up to 24 Chinese Characters is a huge improvement as well as the real time display of exercise statistics. Check out the other functions as well.


Lets take a good look at the specs of the Mi Band 3:


Unboxing Time!

The packaging has been renewed this time, with a transparent front.

Mi Logo at the bottom of the box.

Specs of the Mi Band 3 as usual at the back of the box

Video Unboxing:

Manual, Charger, Band Strap and Capsule


The band got a new redesign on the capsule holder side

The rest of the design is still a carry over from the Mi Band 2






Display is in Chinese, maybe there will be English integration once it hits Global Market. The Icons are enough to explain what is it for.


The touch button has several functions for the Mi Band 3.

Engraved middle to make sure the capsule will hold on the strap.

Charging terminal

Heart Bear Sensor

Mi Logo beautifully engraved.

Pairing is really a breeze with the Mi Fit app, just turn on bluetooth, let it detect and press the confirm on the mi band and thats it! You can now set which app notification you want to receive on the Mi Band 3.

Mi Fit App Integration

Using the connection of the Mi Band 3 to the Mi Fit App is pretty easy to understand and pretty much straight forward, you just a little chinese dkills.
Mi Fti App
Select Band
Just press OK
You will be prompted for update
Firmware updates

These are the how to use guide.
Finally, the main interface.
I can now set the screen unlock
I can freely set what happends to my incoming calls
Alarm setting
Idle alert for those people that are always sitting on the chair
Complete list of  things it can do.
Complete settings on front page
Notification on the watch that you can switch.
Heart Rate

Exercise Mode that you can select.


The Mi Band 3 definitely is a must buy item, but considering its bulkier size than the miband 2, it still performs better than its predecessor. With 20 hours of usage time, its not really bad already for the Mi Band. The only drawback of this fitness band is that you will easily get scratches on the surface.

Grab yours now for 169 RMB from Xiaomi China Webstore.

nice review once again mitch002.
i just bought one myself, but its in Chinese.
im really hoping that the next update will have English language option, even tho they are planning to release a Global version.

is there any update regarding this English language integration?


mitch002 based on what i heard english version will debut on september 2018. not sure about update, but normally it should become english.  16:23, Jun-14-2018
