Feedback on the work

The display does its job perfectly. It is bright enough to be used in bright sunlight, as well as in the dark. The user has no way to increase brightness. There are also several setup options available on the home screen, but they are mostly limited.

The Mi Band 3i looks exactly like the Mi Band 3. The capsule's design is solid and the belts are really comfortable, but the holes in the belts didn't suit me. He was either too tight or a little loose. For daily use, it is quite lightweight and convenient.

The user interface is pretty simple andis clear. In any case, there is little you can do with the 0.78-inch display. The time and date are displayed on the main screen. Unfortunately, there is no way to always keep the watch turned on. Scrolling vertically gives you access to features like weather, notifications, a timer, steps, and more. Here, users can swipe left or right to access group settings, including reset, find the device and screen settings.

There is no heart rate monitor, the step counter worksrelatively accurate. A couple of times I saw it registering steps even while I was sleeping. The sleep tracker also works automatically and if you want detailed data, you will have to resort to using the Mi Fit app, which stores all the recordings.

Regarding notifications, you getnotifications of messages via Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc., as much as a small screen can show. Calls can also be disconnected or rejected, but that’s all, and you can’t expect more from this budget version.

Stellar battery life, as it shouldexpect. Mi Smart Band 3i can easily last you a couple of weeks. This is one of the aspects of fitness bracelets that we like the most, and Mi Band 3i succeeds there.

Mi Smart Band 3i comes with almostall the bells and whistles that are on the standard Mi Band 3 bracelet, with the exception of the heart rate sensor. It also works like Mi Band 3. For this reason, it is a cheaper Mi Band 3. If you do not need a heart rate sensor on your fitness tracker, you can save and buy this version.
