Wakeup, let’s ignite your fitness journey. Xiaomi has launched a new fitness band, the Mi Band 3i in India. With round the clock wellness management, up to 20 days of battery life and 5ATM waterproof resistance, its one of those fitness band where you can bet your money on.
Take note that, a few months ago the company launched its fourth-generation Mi Band in India the Mi Band 4 or Mi Smart Band 4. Yet, we also have the last year’s Mi Band 3 in stores. This new fitness band, the Mi Band 3i sits below the Mi Band 3 and of-course the Mi Band 4. What you would be missing here in the new smart band is the heart-rate monitoring.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 3i or Mi Smart Band 3i, as the company calls it is priced in India at Rs 1299. It’s already available for purchase from Mi’s official online store and estimated delivery set at 2 to 4 days for most of the Indian pin codes.
