Cheap but step counter not great
Step counter records steps when you're in a vehicle. So it's rubbish. . like all step counters. Alarm is handy as it wakes you with vibration. With faulty steps I regret buying it but others may like it

Great smart watch.
I got this for my birthday about a year ago and I've worn it every day since. I love it! Battery life is very long lasting. I charge mine every 3 to 4 weeks. I also like that it's waterproof.
The Mi Fit app is also great to pair with this smart watch. You can see your daily steps, sleep and calories burnt etc. Plus it's ultra lightweight and barely noticeable when wearing.
I would definitely recommend this smart watch.

Upgraded from the Mi Band 2, and the Mi Band 3 has lived up to expectations... Greater accuracy with steps count, larger and easier to read screen even in direct sunlight. I get about 1.5 weeks out of a full battery charge. The band is also much improved, it has never unclipped.

Value for money!
As my daily driver for its pedometer function, it is fairly accurate! There are also many other functions packed in such a small device, and the price I paid for it, can't really say much bad about it!

The best budget fitness band
I have been using this product for nearly a year now and I am never going back to any other fitness band for some time for sure. It is very functional and I wear it every day. It counts your steps, sleep, and heart rate. Battery easily lasts 3 to 4 days and charging takes about an hour. The mi fit app it syncs to is great but it doesn't sync with google fit. For that, to work you have to buy a paid app called mi bands and tools. I recently had to replace the band which cost me nearly 3 dollars delivered. Other than that, its a great product and certainly beats paying 100s of dollars for expensive fitness bands.

Perfect for keeping on track!
My husband purchased two Mi bands to keep track of how many steps we each walk per day. Our goal is to walk over 10,000 per day and the Mi band keeps us motivated to achieving our goal. Although, we can track our steps on our smart devices, we prefer to track our movements without the need to carry a mobile device continuously. The built-in sleep feature is a good way to track your sleep patterns - light sleep, deep sleep etc. I like that the band lets me know when I have been sitting too long. It even notifies me when my phone is ringing, dis...playing the callers ID on the screen. The band has many other good features which can be turned off and on easily. We also purchased different coloured bands to mix the style up a little. The battery life is fantastic. I have only recharged my band twice in over month.

Good value for money
It has basic functions that you need, heart rate monitor, step tracker, GPS. The miband works smoothly without any issues. Most importantly, it is much cheaper than other overpriced fitness trackers. It is easy to use, very handy and can be connected to the app on the phone. Definitely great value for money

Ok value, GPS is highly inaccurate
Heart rate monitor is good, step tracker is reasonably good, GPS appears to work ok when walking on roads however as soon as your are in a park or place without roads it jumps all over the place adding km to your trip. A 2.5km walk measured using Strava and Fitbit (both agreed) came out art 3.9 km with the mi band and mifit app. Map showed nothing like the route we followed. Sleep monitor seems ok, doesn't measure rem sleep. Ok for price but if you want accuracy and detail consider spending more.
We bought this early January, through Amazon website. Because the price at eBay, it seems not different compare to amazon. And we bought two at once, after try it out we totally love it. Again we bought another one for my daughter, give her motivation to move. It’s awesome, very recommend to buy. You won’t regret have it.
The best value wearable device
I had miband 2 a year ago and now getting the new miband 3. It simply is the best price to value wearable device that is available in the market, period. It does all other wearable devices do but with a far cheaper price. The built quality is top notch. Don’t waste your money on other expensive wearable devices which will be outdated in a year or two.
Insane value for the money
I have previously had the fitbit charge 2 and after getting annoyed with the terrible screen response decided to give the band 3 a go. It's packed full of features, has an insane amount of extra bands you can buy from ebay. Battery life is 1 week with heart rate monitor, 2 weeks with just the sleep monitor or 3 weeks on standard. The screen is a bit difficult to see in the daylight. For those wondering it allows notifications from any app and can be customised as required.
Fantastic - Don't Waste Money on Other Trackers
The Mi Band 3 is fantastic as a combined smart watch and fitness tracker at a great value cost.
The fitness/health tracking (heart rate, steps, sleep, etc.) is on par with the Mi Band 2, which I found quite accurate and easy to use. I can now use it swimming which is an added advantage - no need to worry about taking it off when at the pool.
I love the new touch screen display and this is where it's value is now; I can read notifications on the screen which is very very handy, check weather 3 days out, use a stop watch, and start trackin...g exercise on the band. It's on par with my husband's Garman which cost $120 more than the Mi Band 3. I also like the third party bands too - I got the rose gold magnetic one and it feels much nicer on. I highly recommend this over other trackers as it does so much for it's price. I've also stopped using the official Mi Fit app and switched to Notify and Fitness (paid version) as it allows waaaaay more customisation than Mi Fit and I don't need to keep Mi Fit on my phone; just one app for the band. If you get the band, I also recommend getting this app so you can do even more with the band.
Simple but effective
I purchased my band a few months ago after upgrading from the Mi Band 2. Whilst being a simple design, it has improved features and has everything i need. I find the heart rate to be pretty accurate and the charge lasts for ages! It could be a bit more stylish, but it's not bulky on your arm which is great. I have already recommended it to my friend who has bought 2!
Nice unit with lots of functionality
While not as fancy loooking as some other units it has lots of features I did not find in other units. It was easy to setup. features I liked, its waterproof, heart rate monitor can be turned on or off, one app to configure unit and monitor fitness, can select from lots of different activities or customise activities if your inclined to track specific activities, has gps which works with your phone showing you routes. All other features are similar to other devices. I looked at Fitbit ultra hr and hauwei honor band 3. Overall great unit and price.
