He was obviously referring to the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 which has been confirmed to be in the works. The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 should be equipped with an OLED display and will have the capacity to display time, heart rate monitoring, step count, calories and other information. Also, the App linkage will maximize the applicability of this wearable. As for the price, it would be difficult to estimate given that the complete specs of this device have not been released. However, we know that the Mi Band 2 costs 149 Yuan ($24) thus the Mi Band 3 should be about a similar price tag or slightly higher.
