In just a few hours, Xiaomi will launch its flagship smartphone Mi 8, along with Mi 8 SE, MIUI 10, and Mi Band 3. Now, ahead of this official launch, the Mi Band 3’s poster has surfaced online, revealing the design of the fitness tracker and hinting at its features.
From the looks of the fitness tracker, it seems similar to its predecessor. However, the company’s CEO Lei Jun had previously revealed that the wristband of Mi Band 3 has been redesigned to ensure that the tracker doesn’t fall off from the strap, which a lot of users complained about for its predecessor.
The poster has a headline that reads “Your progress can be seen”, hinting about the information that can be available on the screen of this new fitness tracker. Just like the Mi Band 2, its successor is also expected to come with an OLED display and is also reported to support touchscreen. The display is about 0.78-inch and has a convex shape.
Recently, a few posters of the device were leaked online, revealing some of the features of the fitness tracker. Along with displaying the health and fitness related information, such as sleep and heart rate, the device is also expected to come with improved tracking for sports activities.
Further, it is also expected to provide notifications and other functions once the device is connected to a smartphone. It will allow users to read instant messages, see the Caller ID and get the option of muting the call, among others. There are reports indicating that the wearable device will also come equipped with a new Tilt to Wake feature.
The wearable device will have a waterproof build that can withstand being submerged under a 50m water depth. The fitness tracker also said to come with an improved 20 days battery life which can stay on for up to 20 days.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 will be priced at 169 Yuan, which roughly converts to $26. The pricing of the fitness tracker is a tad bit higher than its predecessor, which was priced at 149 Yuan (approx. $23).
