Xiaomi Mi Band 3 accessories – spare bracelets, charging cables etc.

With the Xiaomi Mi Band 3, the manufacturer has managed to surpass its already very good predecessor once again. As with the Xiaomi Mi Band 2, some accessories for the Fitness Tracker accumulate in the usual Chinese shops. Therefore we want to give you an overview of the best & cheapest Xiaomi Mi Band 3 accessories.

“Xiaomi Mi Band 3? What is that supposed to be? What are you talking about?” If that’s exactly what you’re thinking, we recommend our extensive review of the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 spare charging cable

Despite the overall very good performance of the Mi Band 3 there is one point that can be criticized. The battery does not last quite as long as its predecessor, but that depends of course strongly on the individual use. But it is always advisable to have more than one charging cable in your possession. One for the road, one at home, and a spare charger cable in case you ever lose one. After all, they are also extremely cheap to have from China.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Charging Cable

It is important to note that you cannot charge your Xiaomi Mi Band 3 with the charging cable of the Xiaomi Mi Band 2. But the other way around, the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 replacement charging cable is backwards compatible. We must also point out here that these are not original Xiaomi accessories, but accessories from third-party manufacturers. In our experience, however, this is not a problem.

Especially if you have or had both Band 2 and Band 3 in use, you have noticed that the tracker does not look identical. The new generation is slightly thicker overall and also slightly curved by the touch screen. Therefore the tracker does not fit into the old bands. But don’t worry, the variety of the bands is already as distinctive as with the Mi Band 2.

Practical is that also the materials vary here. You can either continue to use a silicone bracelet, but choose a different color. Or you can choose a more chic stainless steel bracelet that enhances the look of the Fitness Tracker. Go crazy!

We have not yet managed to “install” the “Spider-App” on our Mi Bands, but caution is better than forbearance. This protective film is made of TPU and even comes, at least with GearBest, with a suitable cleaning cloth. In our experience, you can invest the dollar, but you don’t necessarily have to.

If you can think of anything else that must be on this list, please let us know in the comments. Do you use spare bracelets yourselves? Interestingly, in the editorial department the boys stick to classic black, while the women rely on the colorful ribbons. Cliché fulfilled, right?
