My Mi Band 3 Review

Pro
1. Very good battery life. With heavy notification and heart rate tracking, it can last for 7-8 days.
2. Bigger Screen display.
3. Notification History allows to read up to 5 messages.
4. Comfortable wrist strap
5. Price is reasonable cheap

Con
1. Under Sunlight, display screen visibility is poor.
2. No daytime sleep tracking.
3. Mi Fit app always on the mobile screen.

There was a new update pushed from the Mi app to my Mi Band 3. It is now officially in English!

How to install English firmware on Xiaomi Mi Band 3?

1) Download Mi Fit app ver. 3.4.4.1 (https://goo.gl/bJn8b7). After that the firmware on Mi Band 3 will be updated to v1.2.0.8. The latest firmware already have official English language and new fonts.

2) If the first method does not work, then you can install unofficial firmware on Mi Band 3 to get English language. As in the previous method, you just need to install Mi Fit app (https://goo.gl/RCNRTo) and update firmware on Mi Band.


PS. In both methods you need to unistall Mi Fit app on your phone before installing the new version.

My only concern is that MiFit does not sync to HPB's Step Challenge app. So far, am using Fitbit Charge 2 which works well for me for the last 5-6 months.

my Fitbit Charge 2 just died 1 month ago. Unable to repair and heart pain for $200++ fitness and sleep tracker.


I also realize not much good deal for HPB's Step Challenge season 3.


Compare Fitbit Charge 2 and Mi Band 3, Mi Band 3 has a bigger screen. Useful for me when I use stop watch mode to track my running. I have issue to see Fitbit Charge 2 stop watch.
