Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is now swim-proof

The affordable wearable hits stores on 27 September

Alongside the gargantuan Mi Max 3, Xiaomi also announced its latest wearable – the Mi Band 3, for Malaysian consumers. The fitness band retains its sleek, minimalist unibody design but gains one useful feature – 5 ATM water resistance.

This means you can take it for a swim. Not bad for a wearable that costs under MYR150.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3Navigating the band is easy – swipe up and down to scroll through menu items; left and right for more options.

The touch button at the bottom of the screen acts as a home button, and can also be used to clear notifications or measuring the heart rate.

The Mi Band 3 is paired to a smartphone via the Mi Fit app which displays real-time workout stats, as well as historical data and analysis on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
