Xiaomi Mi Band 3 review: Best budget fitness tracker

Xiaomi Mi Band 3

Xiaomi Mi Band 3

After the success of Mi band and Mi band 2. Xiaomi announced the Mi band 3 a few weeks back and we are going to review the new fitness tracker from Xiaomi. So, let’s start without any further delay. 🙂

Mi Band 3 is launched in India and it is available on Amazon and Mi India site. The price of the smart band in India is 1999 INR.


Design and Look

The fitness tracker here which looks totally different from its predecessor.  Now let’s see the fitness tracker closely, the build quality is really good like other Mi bands. The glass is curved and the screen is also bigger this time which is  0.78 inch OLED display.

The band supports the heart rate sensor. There is a single button which is now merged with the screen.

The band is made of  TPU and it is skin friendly materials. The build quality of both the tracker and the band is really very good.

The smart band is really lightweight and comfortable to wear and I really like the overall design and the look and feel of the smart band.

The band of the watch is similar to the previous models of Mi band and to tie the smart band you have disturbed holes with snaps.


Comparison with Predecessor Mi Band

Comparing it side by side with the previous Mi band – we have a similar band with the more adjustable levels and also the front glass of the tracker is curved unlike the flat glass of the Mi band and Mi band 2.


How to Connect/pair with your Phone

In order to use it with your phone, you would need to download the Mi-Fit app. The app is available for both Android and iOS.

You have to install the app, sign in, and pair the device with your phone. Pairing is really easy and you just have to go to the pair section and select the band and then it will automatically start looking for the nearby bands.

Once it is found, you will get a notification on the smart band and by pressing the button it will be paired with your phone. So, when the band is paired with the phone, the phone will immediately get the firmware update.


New Gestures in Mi Band 3

So, first let me tell you the options and gestures we have on demand.

The first thing on the smart band you will see is the date and time. You can access the menu by swiping up and down and also right and left.

Swiping up will show you the step counts and now if you swipe to the left you can see the distance covered, calorie burned and the available battery level. About the battery, Xiaomi says that it should give you 20 days of standby time.

If you want to go back to the home, press the button once it will go back to the main menu screen and then pressing it again it will take you back to the clock face.

Talking about more options if you swipe up again you have the heart rate monitoring and to start measuring the heart rate you need to press and hold the button on the screen. Heart rate monitoring on the Mi band 3 is accurate and very quick.

Swiping up twice on the smart band, it will show the weather. It shows the 3 days of the weather forecast and then we have the notification option where it shows you the history of the notification. It shows you the number of notifications you have received and you can go through the notifications by swiping left.

The more gestures which are available are the stopwatch which you can start by long pressing on the screen button. The next option allows you to silent your phone from the watch itself. It also has a new feature called offline device where it will start running your pear phone.

The last option we have is the watch faces. The Mi Band 3 have three new watch faces and to apply one you just need to touch on the screen.

So, that’s all the options in the band and about the app I have to tell you guys that I have tested so many smartwatches in the past.


How Good is Mi-Fit App for Mi Band 3

I still believe that Mi-Fit App is one of the best smartphones companion app. When you open the app, it will automatically start and shows all the options.

You can see step count, last night’s sleep details, heart rate, and then you have the option to see your last activity. You can also see the historical data by going through one of the categories.

Coming back to the app, in the second page of the app we have the activity section where you can start your workout activity such as outdoor running, treadmill, cycling and walking.

In the profile page, you have every step count of the day, kilometers you have covered with the Mi band and how many times you have achieved your goal. We can see the connected device with Mi-Fit app.

Top 5+ Best Free Screen Recording Software

best free screen recording software

Whether you’re recording software or games to share with others on YouTube or streaming video games to twitch or some other service, thankfully, there is no shortage of free screen recording software for you to choose.

So today, I’ll show you the best screen recorders that you can use for free to capture high-quality video from your computer. I’ll also go over the pros and cons of each service.

The screen recorders/game screen recorders that I am mentioning are absolutely free to use.

Now keep in mind that some of these screen recorders have its own pros and cons. Only a few of them are good for a game recording while the rest are good for screen recording.

So just keep that in mind as a these are free but there are also ups and downs. So, starting off:

Ice Cream Screen Recorder

best free screen recorders
This is a pretty good screen recorder. If you are looking into recording your desktop screen and maybe for looking at doing tutorials, ice cream screen recorder is pretty decent.

The only con I can see about this screen recorder is that you do have a time limit of 10 minutes which I find extremely reasonable. 10 minutes is perfectly fine for screen recorder because it’s not like you’re going to record longer than that. So, if you want to record more, you just stop the recording and record again and merge the clips together.

But ice cream screen recorder is pretty damn good. If you ask me it’s good for beginners to start with and record.

The cool thing about ice cream screen recorder also is that there are no watermarks and if you get any messages to upgrade a pro, just click “Do not show again”.

It’s completely free to use which is pretty neat anyway. It is available for Windows and Mac.


Tiny Take

best free screen recorder

Tiny Take is a freemium screen recorder that will let you record short videos and capture screenshots. They also offer editing tools that allow you to mark up your screenshots and videos with the textbox, arrow, picture, caption along with other tools.

When you’re done recording, your videos can be saved locally to your hard drive. They can also be saved to tiny takes cloud storage service.

Tiny take does not have watermarks but unfortunately, some of their features are reserved for their premium plans. The free basic plan also has a video recording limit of 5 minutes and only allows up to 2 gigabytes of storage with their cloud service.

It is one of the other screen recorders may work better for you if you’re someone that doesn’t require many features and you want an easy to use the screen recorder.

Tinytake is available for Windows and Mac.


Flashback Express

best free screen recorder

Flashback Express does not have any time limits or watermarks. Videos can be captured in full screen by selecting a window or by selecting an area of your screen.

They do have a pro version of the software with advanced editing features but if you already have a reliable video editor that you use then the Express version will be all that you need.

Flashback Express is available for Windows XP or newer. In order to use it, they required that the short form be filled out and they’ll send you a free license.

They also released a free screen recorder specifically for gamers called FBX. It has many cool features including being able to record up to 20 frames per second. Right now, FBX is completely free.


iSpring Free Cam

best free screen recorder

iSpring free cam which is 100% free with no watermarks, no time limits or nag screen stub grade. This is one of the easiest screen recorders you can ever use.

Most of the newbie preferred this program for recording screen. It even has an audio and video editor built in to remove background noise for any parts of the video. There’s single click feature to upload videos to YouTube is convenient.

In iSpring Free Cam, you can record as long as you want and it’s somewhat a little bit easier to use and it saves in a proper format as well.

There is two primary reason why it’s not number one in this list because videos can only be exported in WMV format and the highest video quality is limited to 720p. Other than that iSpring free cam is one I’d recommend to those of you looking for an easy to use a screen recorder.

It’s only available for Windows to download. You have to enter an email address, it doesn’t have to be a real email account and then click on free download to be directed to the download page.


OBS Studio

best free screen recorder

OBS Studio which is open-source and completely free it’s what most of the Youtubers use to record screen for videos.

In addition to recording videos that can be saved to your system. You can use it to record various live streaming services with OBS at record rate up to 60 frames per second.

Open broadcast software is a really good program for recording gameplay. Yes, you can also record a desktop and it isn’t limited for streamers.

OBS studio which is open-source and completely free. It’s what most of the Youtubers use to record screen for videos.

There are no forced watermarks compared to many of the screen recorders that you can use. The learning curve is slightly higher and the interface is not that user-friendly for newbies.

OBS studio is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux.


Nvidia Shadowplay and AMD Radeon Reliv

best free screen recorder

Nvidia shadowplay is also a very good alternative to OBS.

I’ll mention two different programs that are from graphics card specific company. First of which is Nvidia Shadowplay which is only available to owners of GeForce Graphics cards.

You can record footage to be saved to your computer or stream games to Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and more.

best free screen recorder

The other program is for those of you with AMD Radeon graphics cards and it’s called Radeon Reliv. Just like the other screen recorders, it can also record your gameplay and stream to the popular services.

For making quality videos for YouTube or any video site, you need some video editing programs and of course, there are some free tools available which override the problem. Let’s check the best free video editors which are worth to use.


Avidemux

Avidemux -best free video editor

It’s a lightweight video editor that runs smoothly even on some older computers. I would not recommend this for large projects. it’s more suited for small editing tasks like putting together clips from a social gathering or something similar.

You won’t be making the next blockbuster movie with this. For its intended purpose, it does a great job and supports many file types including AVI, MPEG, and MP4.

It’s available on Windows, Linux, and Mac.


Apple’s iMovie

imovie - best free video editor

Apple’s iMovie is for Mac OS and iOS. With the latest versions, it now supports the editing of 4k video clips imported from GoPro smartphones and other devices.

The user interface is the cleanest and easiest to navigate of any editor on this list.

You can export your finished project directly to several platforms including Facebook and YouTube. It’s not the most powerful of video editors but it does work well for minor projects.

If you’re on a Mac, you should check out iMovie.

It’s been around for about 25 years and is the most powerful video editor on this list. Some of the key features are GPU accelerated real-time effects, video capture, and professional-level color correction.

Light works would have easily been the number one on this list but the free version has limitations.

You can only export MPEG-4 files with resolutions up to 720p and the free license must be renewed every seven days which I’m sure for a lot of you that could be very annoying.

Other than that on this list it is the most fully featured video editor and it’s available for download on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
