    Unbeatable for the price!

    I have had it for over half a year and on the whole I am very satisfied. Some complain about the pedometer. For me, there have been no problems with it in everyday life. The fact that it measures a little strange if you do other activities is completely inevitable, and is not something you come away with more expensive activity bracelets (everyone uses accelerometers).

    Some quick points that are good to know:
    + Battery life is good at about 14 days if you run with heart rate measurement every 5 minutes and have sleep measurement.

    + An (not often mentioned) function is alarm. The belt then uses the vibration motor in the belt and sounds nothing. Perfect if but need to get up earlier and not want to wake others.

    + Reminder of sitting still works well and helps!

    + Vibrates (if desired) on incoming calls. If you have the phone in silent mode or somewhere where you do not hear it, you can easily feel the vibration on the wrist and can see who is calling.

    + Sync with the app has never been a problem. The app itself could have had more functions for example to analyze passports afterwards.

    - You can't start training sessions that require GPS (through the phone) from the band, but you have to go into the app.

    - The heart rate measurement during activities is not good. At this price I did not expect much, but it does not at all withstand rapid changes in pulse at e.g. interval training. I have compared to the Suunto watch (including heart rate band around the chest) and it differs very much from this. If you have a more constant heart rate level over the workout, the better.

    In summary, you get an incredible amount of money and I highly recommend the product for everyday users!

    I've been using this product for about 4 months and see two major drawbacks: the step count feature and the app. The former causes me to look around for another product, as for me it is the primary area of use.

    I was mainly looking for a pedometer, when I used it before, and now it was time to be a dad, so I was curious how much extra walking it would be. Nowadays, the pedometer market has almost completely been taken over by so-called activity bracelet, and I was a little skeptical about how something that sits on my arm could count the steps properly. However, there is a wide range of activity bracelets and I thought that if people now use them extensively, then they cannot be completely cash. This was also cheap and had good reviews!

    Krux number one is that it counts poorly in general. I have checked both on shorter and longer distances, and especially on shorter ones it is bad. For example, I've counted 44 steps at work (type for the coffee machine), and the bracelet has counted 31. I've counted 200, the bracelet counted 191. Many such miscalculations in one day, the difference becomes quite large.
    At one point I was out paddling. 1500 steps in 20-25 minutes. Sure, I probably burned as much, or more, energy as 1500 steps, but the fact remains that I sat completely still in the canoe during the period.
    The big problem turned out when I started to go with a stroller! If you have the hand on the stroller handle (which you typically have), the bracelet does not count any steps at all. Moderately fun when you have been out for an hour and got together in the order of 200 steps. I have tried to attach the bracelet to a trouser shelf and put it in my pocket, and then it usually counts correctly, but sometimes not at all. I mean that counting right sometimes is the same as counting wrong. Also, of course, no heart rate measurement is allowed when the bracelet is not on the arm. Another thing I have noticed is that if I temporarily change the speed of the climb (such as uphill or knotty terrain) it will sometimes stop counting and (possibly) start when I get back up to speed. However, for those of you who are mostly going to use the step count function for running rounds, I think the function is good enough!

    I will probably try to get hold of a Fitbit Zip again. I have had two (one I sipped away; the other I had broken by landing on it) and they counted impeccably.

    Then there was the app. It feels very non-intuitive, which other than I have already pointed out. I've been a diligent computer user since well before Windows 95 - since then phone and tablet users - and I've seen few interfaces that feel as good as this one. I've tried both Android and Iphone, and the app is essentially identical on the two. It is unclear how to get from one view to another. The history graphs are incomprehensible and look like they were put together on a coffee break. How about, for example, a bar graph with logarithmic scale, but completely without scale? No, Fitbit's app is superior to Xiaomis. That the language then seems to be automatically translated from Chinese, I see that most as a funny detail.
    However, there are third-party applications, and I have only tested one, but it sent so many notifications in time and time that I could not continue to use it.

    Another annoyance is that every time an update comes to the manic, the app chooses to update it without asking first. The update takes 10-15 minutes and in the meantime it does not count any steps or measure any heart rate. The settings I made for which views I want on the bracelet (a good feature in itself) have also disappeared with each update.

    However, there are some pluses:
    + The bracelet is comfortable enough to wear around the clock. However, there is a risk that it will crack when it gets wet, which happened to me a couple of times.
    + That the gadget is waterproof is super! Have tested it extensively during the summer outdoor pool and there is nothing to complain about.
    + Bluetooth connection works fine, both on Android and Iphone.
    + Pulse measurement works, as far as I can tell, good.
    + Battery life is good. Charges probably about every two weeks and charging takes only an hour.
    + Sleep registration. It is not perfect, but surprisingly good. I often get up at night (have toddlers) and this seems to handle nicely. Sleep time seems to be a good fit. The only thing is that the wake-up time gets cranky the times I get the chance to stay in bed in the morning - little surprise.

    Incredibly affordable.
    The app is a bit cleverly translated but you can figure out what they mean.

    Perfect for me. My first activity band. Along with the app Notify & Fitness for Mi Band 3, the band is a delight to have. The watch weighs 20 grams and runs for 20 days, during normal use. The fact that it weighs so little is excellent, I do not notice that I carry it. Even at night. Yes it is waterproof was an absolute must. It should be possible to both shower and bathe, but I have not tested it. Via the app you set what you want to see. In the beginning, there will be a lot of watching and measuring on the clock itself, but now after a couple of weeks of using and changing the app, I just check the clock and the rest I see easily, clearly and excellently via the app. Not just steps and pulse but also sleep and sleep, wake-up and where you see how to make progress for a whole month back, day / day different parameters. That this watch only cost me 203: - SEK plus shipping is a joke. A good joke. Buy it! There are other, clearly more expensive ones, but so many more functions they do not have. One bad thing about it is that nothing can be seen in strong sunshine. But it appears in the app.
    One minus is that the app is in English, and is available in a lot of languages but not Swedish. Developers of the app answer that it is the users who translate the app and get paid in the form of the price for a Pro version, 32: -.

    My first smartband and I are very satisfied. The functions are exactly the ones I was looking for and more to that. The battery life of 2-3 weeks also feels luxurious.

    The fact that I pull off a star is due to:
    1. The app could be simplified (unclear where to find certain functions), but at the same time offer deeper analysis possibilities. Example: After a running pass you can see a graph of the pulse with maximum and mean pulse, but do not see the exact pulse at a given time.
    In the latest update, the Swedish language is also quite skewed. Looks like google translate.
    2. The belt design slopes almost perpendicularly down from the tracker. No problem for most people, but if you have wide forearms push the strap against the sides of your forearm (not at all hard, but still disturbing), no matter how loosely you have tightened it.

    The functions, the battery life, and the price are quite difficult to beat when merging them.

    Best band that meets all the requirements you have on a smartband. Who should have to pay more than 1000kr for fitbit when you can buy my band for 300kr? The best band, then I have tested a lot of bands.

    Has owned it for two weeks tomorrow. Charged it up to 89% battery and after 13 days of use around the clock I now have 47% battery left so it should last about one month which I had not expected.
    Have the functions needed, sit well and have many holes so you can adjust the length of the bracelet well.
    Helnöjd o seen at price (about 450 SEK) it gets full pot.

    Feels like a lot for the money! Needed mainly a pedometer that sits where it should. Compared to iPhone health app and a cheap pedometer from Clas Ohlson, it only separates 2-3% in the number of steps counted, which may be considered good.

    Bonus that it hardly feels or is noticed, so you can sleep with it and then get some statistics on sleep, and how it compares to other users.

    Is on day 2 so do not want to hand out full pot before evaluating any disadvantages.

    Very much for the cheap money it costs

    Have had it for me for about 5 months, just take it for charging. No scratches on the glass or damage despite oust handling sometimes. And no problems with waterproofness, even though it's always on shower, bath, etc.

    Battery life is good, I have the tightest range of heart rate measurement. Now in the winter, the battery lasts almost 2 weeks, as the screen power is automatically reduced during the dark hours of the day, saving battery power. During the summer you can load more often when the screen strength is higher.

    Notifications and connection to the phone work great, however, problems with some characters and emojis, etc.

    The app works well, but is not in it and looks so often.

    I miss a more bright screen, it's hard, almost impossible to read it in strong sunshine. Then I have the Chinese version which means some tripping to get English screen language. Bad that can not be set in the app. I also miss a more slim design, do not really think it's so nice.

    Used this watch for just over 2 weeks, need to load once and it's been yesterday.
    Have an android phone and used the mi fit app.

    Likes the features, cool with graphs in the app on heart rhythm and sleep. Can be set at 5-10-30 minutes intervals and appears to be measuring more often if, for example, is in the gym or in other exhausting activity

    Also appreciate the "find my phone" feature from the bracelet when you unplug the phone, the bluetooth seems to have a really good range, very practical!
    More useful than the previous model xiaomi mi band 2, nice touchscreen instead of just 1 button as before.

    To keep in mind is that the model sold in Sweden right now is china edition, which means that you have to drive English as language on the phone, otherwise the clock shows Chinese. At the moment there seems to be no support for ÅÄÖ in notifications. However, the clock is quite new so think they will fix with new firmware, have e-mailed and asked they to post.

    EDIT: Found an app you can set the clock's language on, "Mi Bandage", available on the play store. Then you can run Swedish on the phone but English on the clock. Just change and then deselect the app.

    All in all, feel more useful than a regular clock, rarely need to be charged, good features. Do not know what to expect from such a little manicure.

    Had a Mi Band 2 since January and was very pleased with its quality and functionality for the little money (bought it for around 250kr with the freight included from China before the postal charges began) and its stripped design. The heart rate monitor was surprisingly accurate and the battery life of these bands is wonderfully long.

    Upgraded to 3an because I wanted more detailed notifications than 2an managed, as well as built-in weather forecast, find-my-phone and stop-ur were other highly sought after new features.

    After almost two weeks of use, I have these views on it:

    The good:

    + Continuously clean stripped design like previous models
    + Canon battery life (about 2 weeks for me with plenty of notifications and HRM)
    + Larger shutter than 2an with touch
    + Easy-to-understand touch interface on the tape
    + Displays 24h clock, month and weekday with name (small but oh so appreciated detail), can also add number of steps along with this on new selectable watchfaces
    + Find my phone feature
    + Heart rate monitor
    + Weather forecast for the day and 2 days ahead
    + Stopwatch
    + Can turn on and off silently on your phone
    + Can be similar to "hacked" with third party apps and other for user-expandable functionality

    The less good:

    - The screen sometimes has difficulty interpreting if you sweep horizontally or vertically, making menu navigation sometimes difficult.
    "Lift to wake does not feel as responsive as on my 2a, maybe it's education?
    - The bracelet is not quite as good as my 2a did, the band rotates more easily on the arm and the device itself may fail
    - Mi Fit bitwise messy
    - With current firmware and Mi Fit version, you are forced to run Android in English to get the Mi Fit app and thus Mi Band 3 to get an English user interface. Do you have Swedish as a language in your Android, Mi Fit is in Swedish (mostly) but Mi Band in Chinese ..

    Despite these problems, I have difficulty giving it under an 8 out of 10 in grades. Mi Band 3, similar to its predecessor, slashes of Fitbits with three times the price tag in terms of functionality and value for money. They do not really get in the same polish as Fitbit's user interface but are clearly approved, and the hardware feels at least as durable and qualitative.

    Bought my Aliexpress for around $ 28 including shipping included, with the postage fee I landed just under 350 bucks, which in my opinion makes the Mi Band 3 ridiculously affordable even with the mail's extra attention in mind. If you looked at it, it seems good, there are not much to think about, just buy.
