Xiaomi has launched a new fitness tracker named Mi Smart Band 3i in India. It is the same product it has been teasing on social media for the last couple of days. It is a toned-down variant of the Mi Smart Band 3 from last year as it lacks a heart-rate monitor this time around. This also makes it the most affordable fitness tracker in India from Xiaomi.
The Mi Smart Band 3i sports a 0.78-inch monochromatic AMOLED touch display as compared to the colored one on the Mi Band 3. The display offers 300 nits of brightness which should be good enough for outdoor usage. It is made up of polycarbonate and also has an anti-fingerprint coating. There is only one touch-capacitive button as it supports gestures for all the major user interactions.
It offers 5ATM water resistance so that you can wear it during your swimming sessions. Other noteworthy features include call/notification alerts, sleep monitor, real-time activity tracker, event reminder, sitting idle alert, and paired smartphone unlocking.
The fitness band comes with Bluetooth 4.2 LE that makes capable of connecting with a device running at least Android 4.4 or iOS 9.0. It has dual pogo pins to help users charge the 110mAH battery that is claimed to last for up to 20 days on a single charge. It means you will not need that charger too often.
Xiaomi has priced the Mi Smart Band 3i at Rs. 1,299 in India. It is already available for preorders via Mi.com online store with an estimated delivery time of 2 to 4 days. There is only one color variant i.e. Black.
