In simple words, the latest Xiaomi band is just spectacular and fantastic in terms of looks and functioning respectively. Unlike the Mi Band 2, this version with 17.9×46.9×12mm dimensions, is notably light and smaller on the wrist. However, it is bigger in terms of display, which measures 0.78-inches. It sports an OLED touchscreen panel that can be swiped across to navigate through the menu and all other functions. There is a touch key present at the bottom that helps to activate features and even to go back to previous action or option. It offers a good resolution of 128×80 pixel with good clarity.
