1、 Two years waiting for NFC version of mihuan 3
As early as May 31 this year, after two years of long waiting, Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version will appear with Xiaomi 8.
The low price of 199 yuan makes it possible for the whole people to brush the ring, take the subway, bus and access control. However, it’s a pity that this version has been delayed in selling. There’s a PPT in the room with people’s saliva
Until a month ago (August 14), the NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3, which had been on display for two and a half months but had no news, had a new trend to the outside. Xiaomi Bracelet official published a large picture of “I am still in the internal test”, and the access card logo and words could be seen.
Finally, after a long time of adaptability and compatibility for the huge workload of Baicheng bus, multicity subway and various types of access control, the NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 is finally ready in recent days, and officially launched for sale on September 19, then it can run to everyone’s wrist.
The NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 is exactly the same as Xiaomi Bracelet 3 in appearance, with elegant water drop shape, OLED display with PPI up to 193; 5 ATM waterproof, sports sub screen, event reminder and 15 day endurance sample.
And its main NFC payment will support 164 cities’ buses, subways and other travel tools in the first batch, as well as some access card functions. The low price of 199 yuan makes it inherit the best cost performance of millet Bracelet series, which is bound to push to the climax of popular support.
Fast technology has got the NFC version of millet Bracelet 3 for the first time, but it is slightly different from the version put on the market. What I take is the limited edition commemorative version. Next, I will see with the author how the long-awaited guy behaves?
2、 Appearance: rice wristband two color one piece no burr technology more attentive
The NFC version of millet Bracelet 3 that I have obtained is a limited edition of maple leaf red color matching, and its standard style colors are graphite black, thermal orange and deep sky blue. In the future, there will be two new color matching, i.e. wine red and lotus root powder.
This is the outer box of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC limited edition packaging. The unique orange background color and maple leaf red contrast, which is much more exquisite than the packaging of the market version and Xiaomi Bracelet 3.
This is the back of the packing box. Some important configuration parameter information, manufacturer information and packing content are written briefly.
The limited edition of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version that the author has obtained adopts maple leaf red wristband and black rice grain that is integrated in the whole way. The round rice grain is similar to ellipse shape, which is integrated into two colors with the smooth wristband, without abrupt or discordant sensory experience.
This is millet in NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3. Compared with the previous generation, the screen of NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 is much larger, and the PMOLED display of about 0.78 inch is more eye-catching.
This is the shape of the bottom of the rice grain, and the heart rate sensor is still placed here.
In the lower part of the screen, there is a capacitive key that can’t be pressed, which can be operated by clicking or sliding.
The charging interface of the bracelet is similar to that of the previous generation.
Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version of the main body of the wristband uses synthetic rubber, this material is very soft to touch and skin friendly.
In order to prevent rice grains from falling off, the inner and outer rings of the wristband are made of two-color integrated molding process. It can be seen that the wristband has been glued twice, making it firmly wrap the main body of rice grains.
This is the details of the wristband. The official has introduced that the wristband has been tempered by liquid nitrogen freezing, so we can find that there is almost no burr in the hand, which is more attentive than the previous generation.
The round aluminum alloy wrist clasp is marked with “No.123”, which is unique to the limited edition. Soon technology was lucky enough to get number 123, and the numbers read quite smoothly, the true Memorial.
3、 Use experience: access card minute fast simulation 164 city bus history most complete
Compared with the previous generation millet Bracelet 2 and millet Bracelet 3, the most prominent feature of millet Bracelet 3 NFC version is the function entrance with “bus card” and “access control simulation”.
Compared with millet Bracelet 2, the new Bracelet screen lock, weather settings and event reminders.
Event reminder is a function similar to memo Calendar Reminder. After setting the event content and specific time, the preset content will be displayed on the screen at the scheduled time, as shown in the figure above.
By default, all display application categories of the bracelet are turned on. If the user is conscious of redundancy, he can turn off the bracelet and give the maximum degree of freedom.
There is no difference between the NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 and Xiaomi Bracelet 3 in content space, sports mode, timing function, etc. Please refer to our previous evaluation of Xiaomi Bracelet 3, which will not be described here.
2. Bus card
The addition of NFC brings the exclusive function of public transport card to Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC. You can directly open Xiaomi sports app, enter my Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC page, and you can see the entrance of public transport card displayed.
Then click the bus card to enter the card opening guidance page:
Click open now to enter the supported bus card list display page.
Then select the corresponding traffic card of your area, recharge the amount and complete the payment.
It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version is currently the NFC bracelet that supports the most traffic cards, and can realize the function of air card issuing and air recharge.
At present, many NFC bracelets on sale support the function of public transport card swiping, but the number of supporting cities is small or even limited to a few first tier cities.
The NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 relies on its long-term public transport function of Xiaomi, which supports the public transport card swiping function in more than 160 cities, including Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, etc.
More specifically, the first batch of urban public transport supporting traffic cards are Beijing Tianjin Hebei interconnection cards, lingnantong, Shenzhen, Hefei and Jiangsu all-in-one cards. Suzhou, Wuhan, Jilin and Guangxi all-in-one traffic cards will be opened and supported in succession.
3. Analog access card
As the function of the simulated access card is still in the experimental stage, it is closed by default and hidden in the secondary menu of “laboratory function”. Click “my” → “laboratory function” to turn on the “door card simulation” switch.
Then go back to the home page, you can see that the entry entrance of “door card simulation” appears prominently under the bus card function entrance, and then click enter.
Before starting to simulate the access control card, it will detect the access control card. Here we need to remind you that the Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version only supports the door card which is not encrypted and whose frequency is 13.56MHz on the market at present.
In addition, the bank card with door card function and the door card with stored value consumption and public transport consumption function cannot be simulated temporarily. Even if the simulation is successful, these cards do not have the functions of bank and public transportation.
What we need to remind you here is that, whether in the process of access card detection or access card simulation, we need to make the card closely fit with the bracelet, otherwise it will interfere with its working process and affect its working effect.
Fortunately, the company’s access control card used by the author complies with the mainstream standards and the requirements of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version for the simulation object without encryption and with a frequency of 13.56MHz.
In order to take into account the need of card simulation security, using this function also needs to carry out identity authentication, that is, upload the information related to the front and back of the ID card.
After uploading the ID card information in the previous step, the card can be opened. During the card opening process, Bluetooth is required to be opened and there is a network connection.
Looking back at the whole process, since I click to enter and read the relevant terms of card opening, and have gone through the rummage and rummage to find the ID card everywhere, upload the confidence of ID card, until the successful card opening, it will take less than four minutes, which is very efficient.
As shown above, the author tried to punch the door lock with the Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version which completed the card simulation, and opened it at a touch without delay, completely consistent with the real card experience.
4、 Endurance: 110mah battery can be charged for 15 days at a time
The built-in 110 MAH battery of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC is 40 MAH higher than that of the second generation of 70 MAH, but the power consumption of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC is inevitable to be higher than that of the second generation due to the larger screen and the addition of NFC module.
Remaining power after one day of use
The remaining power of the NFC version of millet Bracelet 3 just opened the box is 53%. The author has used it for a total of one day, and the functions such as heart rate, hand lifting and screen lighting have been on all the time. In the middle, the access control card simulation adaptation has been repeated many times, which is in line with the normal use scenario of most people.
As shown in the figure above, the remaining power is 47% and 6% of the power is consumed. When the power is full, the 15 day endurance time declared by the official is met. The working power consumption of the NFC module is affected. Compared with the 20 day endurance record of the non NFC version of millet Bracelet 3, it is slightly inferior.
5、 Conclusion: shoudeyunkai sees Yueming’s 199 yuan high cost performance waiting
In terms of appearance, Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC version has a more comprehensive and diversified richness than the previous generation, whether it is a limited edition of maple leaf red, or graphite black, thermal orange, deep sky blue and the following wine red, lotus root powder and other new colors.
The process of entering the access card within 4 minutes has overturned the inherent cognition of the author’s imagination. The experience of brushing the access card at one touch has proved that the relevant functions of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 NFC can be used daily at ease.
In terms of endurance, the built-in 110 MAH battery can meet the normal use for 15 days.
This is due to the increased power consumption of NFC module, which makes the standby time of NFC version millet Bracelet 3 less than that of non NFC version with the same battery capacity about 5 days per month. However, it is the cost paid for itch point pain point function and standing on the monthly dimension, and the 15 day endurance is enough.
In general, the NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 3 has such a comprehensive and no short board performance, coupled with the low price of 199 yuan, and still inherits the high cost-effective performance of Xiaomi’s inborn products. No matter the hardware or the strong supporting ecology of Xiaomi’s public transportation, there is no rival in the industry.
