Why would this be a "hot deal"? All the prices you listed are at least 25% more than what the MRSP is.

Don't forget they also make up an imaginary price, put a slash through it, then tell you you're saving 80%. What a con - or business as usual for these shops.

From sellers: Now we have Only Chinese version available.
Mi band 3 screen is displayed in Chinese.
No deal for now... I'd wait for English version.

I like it, this looks like a good replacement for my Gear Fit2. With the features, 20 day battery life compared to charging mine every other day. Waiting for the international English version.

I think this thing is super dissaspointing. It's barely better than the mi band 2. There has to be better options.

I mean, if Amazon can do it, why not these guys too?

When have you ever seen Amazon list a product above the MSRP, and then say you're saving a certain amount based on a price that it has never been sold for? I don't believe Amazon does this as it's illegal, at least in Canada.

Story from last year: Amazon Canada fined $1.1m for misleading pricing

And I noticed them doing it again (here and there, not quite as widespread as it was before they got fined) starting sometime late last year, maybe.

at $26 translated MSRP these aren't really good prices.

ohh there is a version with NFC that sounds fun. I'll definitely be waiting for English versions but $31 MSRP translated sounds like a decent price. I paid about $20 for my MiBand 2

which I mostly love (I have thick wrists and I'm waiting for an larger band to come in) +$11 for the next version isn't bad and continuous HR monitor is a pretty spiffy feature rather than having to manually do it when I want to check.

So this is the newest Mi Band. The first two models have been praised for offering basic Fibit features at a small price. The third iteration is similar to the 2nd model except it features a bigger screen and better bluetooth capabilities from what I understand. The device is best suited to work on Android and imo Tools & Mi Band is a good app to get more functionality for it. Also, the price is at $46 CAD or $35 USD which is quite a bit more than the first two models.
