Xiaomi Mi Band 3 – What to Expect?

The third generation of Mi Band series will continue to follow the same chassis + wristband design of Mi Band 2. There will be a change in the display, as it will be OLED and slightly bigger than the previous generation, supporting touch operation. In addition, the basic functions will continue such as heart rate, pedometer, and waterproof are not expected to be absent.

The upcoming health wear might fix the greatest down point of Mi Band 2 which is the static heart rate monitoring. Mi Band 3 might support dynamic heart rate monitoring, checking the pulse rate after every 10 to 30 minutes.
