Mi Band 3 Indian Edition Review _ More Powerful Than Ever

Mi Band 3 India's most awaited fitness band launched in India for a price tag of Rs. 1999.00/- which is similar to the price tag of its predecessor Mi Band 2 here I am not even considering Mi band HRX edition which dose not have a heart rate sensor though everything else are pretty similar.
My first impression - Wow! what else you want at this price point, features almost comparable to a smart watch, change in design_ a fresh look_ a bigger and clearer 0.78 inch OLED touch screen with three color options_ black, blue & red though as seen earlier black will be available out of the box other color straps will be available on amazon and mi.com soon. It has almost all the features that a smart watch would have at a higher price point.

PROS
------------------
1) The screen is brilliant & easy to read its brighter compared to other bands in this category.
2) Battery_ It has a 110 mAH obviously bigger than before (70 mAH) w hich according company will last you for 20 days but in reality if you are continuously using the band connected with bluetooth it will last you for 10 days.
3) Comfortable to wear you will definitely like the sleek visual appeal, the strap has hypoallergenic properties which will help buyers with skin sensitivity.
4) Notifications like calls and text appears quick, its supports 5 social media apps that you can select from the MiFit app that you are willing to receive the notification for and this time you can access the full length text which is an huge upgrade from Mi band 2. In case of calls this time you can reject the directly from the band
5) Watch faces to change the home screen look and this time you are getting three watch faces to customize the home screen pretty similar to a smart watch feature.
6) You can directly make your connected smartphone silent from the band itself which is helpful while in meetings.
7) This time it has a find your phone feature which is the only USP this time for Fastrack reflex 2.0 this year.
8) The band has a stop watch and workout feature this time which is definitely an upgrade.
9) This time the heart rate sensor will measure your heart rate at time intervals and also if you are using he workout mode.
10) The band is water resistant up to 50 miters (5ATM rating) this time so you can swim while wearing the band.
11) This time the band will notify you if the bluetooth connection is lost.
12) This time step count algorithm is improved for sure.

CONS
--------------------
1) Dose not have a battery percentage indicator on the home screen.
2) MiFit app interface updated this time but still not user friendly for first time users.
3) Outdoor visibility or sunlight visibility is not good.
4) The OLED screen is prone to scratches.

WISH
---------------------
Hope that developers will develop more watch faces for Mi band 3.

Final verdict will be that Mi band 3 is fitness band to go for and a worth waiting for more than 1.5 years after Mi band 2.
