After the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 popped up in a leaked tutorial and purportedly on the wrist of the company's CEO, we now have another indication that the Chinese vendor's next fitness tracker is preparing to land. While the first listing is tagged at $57.36, the second listing gets a price tag of $39.99. The previous model is incredibly affordable but has been criticised for inconsistent heart rate monitoring.

The teaser image shows a Mi Band 2 like capsule tracker, with a black band.

Coming to India, IDC reported that 2.5 million wearable units were shipped in 2016, with the numbers expecting to rise. If you click Alert Me On arrival button, you will receive a notification when the stock arrives.

Meanwhile, the company took to Twitter and revealed the teaser of the forthcoming Mi Band 3. The fitness band has recently cleared the Bluetooth certification in China. The next iteration of the band- the Mi Band 3 is close to its release. If a device passes through Bluetooth, then it indicates imminent launch of the gadget. The absence of a physical button may suggest that the wearable will come off with an entirely new touchscreen display. But the display doesn't come with a physical button to navigate through the band features, which means it's likely to come with a touch screen display. But rumors have hinted at an upgrade for a while now and it is going to be called the Mi Band 3.

The Mi Band 2 can be connected to compatible smartphones and tablets devices via Bluetooth 4.0 LE. The company has launched series of fitness bands, with the latest one Mi Band 2 and Mi Band HRX Edition. We don't have any idea as to whether the addition of a color touchscreen will have any impact on the overall battery backup time. However, the sleep tracking measurements are not accurate.
