     MIband 3 has attracted customers with its amazing features. It has a large OLED screen where you can view notifications by just raising your wrist. The screen displays messages and social media notifications and incoming calls. You can watch the weather forecast and can set alarms and event reminders.

Final Verdict:

   To sum things up the MIband 3 is a huge upgrade over the MIband 2 in almost every way. It has a display that's bigger that's enabled and brighter than the display on the MI band 2. It has additional features like a stopwatch, beaded notifications on more detailed hearted data. It also has better water resistance as compared to the MI band 2. Plus it has a pretty amazing battery life even with automatic hearted docking, something that the MIband 2 didn't even support. SO MI band 3 is pretty much the best affordable band with the essential features.
