Yordan, 21 November 2019

Xiaomi has just launched the Mi Band 3i, which is specifically designed for the Indian market. The device looks exactly like the regular Mi Band 3, but lacks a heart-rate sensor that usually is on the back of the device. This allows Xiaomi to sell the Mi Band 3i at an impressively low price of INR1,299, which is just $18.

Beyond that there's no difference between the Mi Band 3i and the Mi Band 3. It still has an AMOLED screen with a 0.78” black and white display and a resolution of 128 x 80 pixels. The capacitive button below allows adds another way to control the UI, while the back features two Pogo Pins for charging.

Xiaomi did a great job covering the fact there is no heart-rate sensor - the company has photos only from the front or onto a person’s wrist. It has all the other features like sleep tracking, idle alert, app notifications, locating or unlocking your phone, as well as the gentle vibrating alarm - you simply forget you need the HR sensor.

Since the phone is part of the Mi ecosystem, it pairs with the phone through Bluetooth 4.2 and on the Mi Fit app all the data collected is provided in a neat way that is both easy to read and pleasing to the eye.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3i is available for purchase with free shipping, with an estimated delivery time ranging from 2 to 5 days, depending on the location.
