Installing and removing this stainless steel strap is also really easy. You can swap out the original band with this one in a matter of seconds. You can get this band in either silver, black or gold color option.
4) Staron Metal Case Cover for Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Bracelet
This is one of my favorite Mi Band 3 Replacement Straps and the one I recommend to those who are looking to up the look and feel of their fitness tracker.
You can get this leather Mi Band 3 strap in 4 colors. However, as you would expect, your Mi band 3 will no longer be 50m water-resistant when you have this strap one. It’s made from synthetic leather which will wear out when exposed to water for a long period of time. Exposing the band to the light rain won’t be much of an issue, though.
The strap looks quite good and much better than what it looks like in the pictures. There’s a soft cushioning on the inner part of the strap when makes wearing it for an extended period quite comfortable. You can get one of these for under $5.

6) Replacement Stainless Steel Wristband Band Strap For Xiaomi Mi Band 3
Of all the Mi Band 3 Replacement Straps, this one has to be one of the most expensive ones. But the fit and finish of this strap is far superior to any of the other straps mentioned in this list.
The stainless steel strap has got some heft to it and reminds of me the genuine Casio Edifice watch strap that came with the watch. The weight itself is alone worth the price you are paying.
However, I wouldn’t go with the silver stainless strap as pictured above. Rather, I would choose the Blackstrap which goes really well with the Mi Band 3.
7) Ounice TPU Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Strap
This is yet another strap for the Mi Band 3 designed for the women. You can get this strap in various color and design options. It’s just as easy to install as the default band and is just as durable.

This Kanzd Silicone Wristband is by far my favorite Mi Band 3 Replacement Straps for several reasons. It looks subtle and doesn’t scream ‘fancy’. However, it looks much better than the default strap the Mi Band 3 comes in.
You will also love the fact that you can get this strap in a whopping 13 color options. Even better, as of now, this strap is priced at just $0.99. You can just go ahead and buy multiple colors of the strap and change them you feel like. The texture of the band is also quite unique.

The face of this strap is what separates this replacement band from the others. The band features a metallic head where the head-unit of the Mi Band 3 is placed. The other part of the strap is made from faux leather.

Frequently asked questions about the Mi Band 3
1) How easy/difficult is it to remove the strap from the Mi Band 3?
I will be honest here. Removing and re-installing the Mi Band 3 isn’t easy. The first time I tried it, I was sure to break the band. But with time and patience, I have learned that the band is quite durable and should last a really long time.
2) Does the Mi Band 3 fall off from the strap just like on the Mi Band 2?
Thankfully with the Mi Band 3, Xiaomi has fixed the issue where the Mi Band would fall off the strap. So, if you are planning to get an additional strap for your Mi Band 3 due to the fear of it falling off, you really don’t need to. The stock strap that comes with the Mi Band 3 is already good enough.
The Mi Band 3 uses a new design which makes sure that the Mi Band 3 doesn’t fall off without the user consent.
3) Where can I buy genuine first-part Mi Band 3 Band?
Unfortunately, you can’t. Xiaomi doesn’t directly sell its Mi Band 3 straps so there’s no way you can buy it from them.
No matter where you buy your replacement band, it’s going to be a third-party one. And that’s that.
