Mi Band 3

[Q & A] Battery issues - any ideas for a fix?

So, guys, here's my problem: after the last firmware update I started having unusual battery drain on my Band 3. I don't use heart rate monitoring and I connect it once or twice a day to my phone just to upload the data on Mi Fit (and everything else that could drain the battery - off). Before the update I had a decent 20  days battery life. Now it dies in a week.

I've browsed the MIUI forum just to find other lads with the same problem, but no solution.

So, any ideas?

Thanks :)

Ok, will keep an eye out for a fix, I know that the two bands in my household are still fine on that, so not a universal issue. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, and sorry about the hassle.

you should also check, open the app and go to workout tab at the bottom centre icon. on the bottom section where the map is there is also an icon for your band, tap that and make sure it's NOT connect.  if it is turn it off.  mine was draining really fast and realised I had accidentally turn on one of the fitness programs on the band which then in turn kept the connection open between my phone and band thinking I was working out so that fixed mine
