Xiaomi has made its Mi Band 3 (Review) fitness tracker available to buy via partner offline retail stores in India.

At the launch event, Xiaomi said the Mi Band 3 will be made available via Mi Home and offline stores soon. Gadgets 360 has learnt that the fitness tracker is now available to buy via offline stores. The development comes on the heels on new festive season discounts for offline stores from the Chinese company.
Launched at Rs. 1,999, the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 sports an 0.78-inch OLED display that comes with 128x80-pixel resolution, and the touch button on the display allows users to navigate by swiping up, down, left, and right, and the new Caller ID feature also allows users to see who is calling, and silence (tap) or decline calls (long press).
