Xiaomi had previously confirmed that the Mi Band 3 will be announced alongside the Mi 8, and sure enough it has. The Mi Band 3 is the company’s latest attempts at a fitness tracker and will bring about improvements from its predecessor, which we suppose is to be expected.

In terms of design, the Mi Band 3 looks identical to the Mi Band 2. However there are some differences. Xiaomi has given the Mi Band 3 a larger display (a 0.78-inch OLED screen) which according to the company, “Mi Band 3 comes with a bigger screen, giving you a better experience for viewing messages and answering calls.”

The Mi Band 3 will also retain its water resistance, but Xiaomi has improved upon it where it will now be water resistant up to 50 meters. As for the rest of the specs, it seems that it will be more or less the same with the same 20 day battery life. That being said while it might not necessarily be the most exciting fitness tracker we’ve seen, its price makes it almost impossible to complain.

As per the rumors, the Mi Band 3 will be priced at 169 yuan which after conversion is roughly $26. As for availability, Xiaomi will be launching the Mi Band 3 in China first before it eventually finds its way to other parts of the world.
