And to be precise on September 19th. However, so far only in China.
The company Xiaomi has introduced its third-generation fitness tracker Mi Band in may of this year, simultaneously announcing the NFC version of the device. And as promised, a Chinese manufacturer, the new product goes on sale in September this year.
The cost of the Mi Band 3 NFC edition is $29, which is only $4 more expensive than the regular version. The main advantage of this model is the ability to make payments through the service Mi Pay.
Unfortunately, the company yet does not specify whether the work is a fitness tracker with other payment systems. And it would be very nice, for example, to buy Mi Band 3 to the smartphone Mi A2, which lacks NFC.
As for characteristics, they are identical to the normal version of Mi Band 3: 0.78″ OLED screen, moisture proof, work time from a single charge up to 20 days. In addition, Xiaomi announced that for the first 17 days of sales of the Mi Band 3 were acquired 1 million fitness trackers.
