Accessories & Packaging
The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 unboxing results in a proprietary cable charging cable, a tiny screwdriver and the user manual. Everything comes inside a square box with inner foam to protect the unit.
The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 has a classic smartband design with a tall and slim form factor.
The main watch section is clean and stylish with a “high-class” look and metal mesh straps that match the color chosen.
The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 has 1 touch button on the bottom of the screen – to preserve the clean design the touch sensitive area of the screen is not marked with any lines nor indications.
The operation and navigation of the menus is quite straightforward:

- Heart rate and blood pressure measurement will start automatically by simply navigating to the dedicated screen
The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 is equipped with a 120 mAh lithium ion polymer battery that the brand says to provide 40 days of standby time and 3 days of use.
To be honest, our unit has way surpassed the 3 days of usage, we have been using it exclusively for the last 5 days (under normal use and turning off Bluetooth while sleeping) and the battery indicator is at 1-step below 50% charge – if this charge tendency carries on, we would be in front of approximately 10 days per charge.
Charging: To charge the Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 you will need to place the charging cable pins on the + and – connectors on the back of the unit – the unit should fully charge in 60 minutes.

- Vibrating alerts: stronger than the Xiaomi Mijia Quartz Watch and DT NO.1 F13 – Alarm vibrations can be manually set to 5, 10 or 15 vibrations
- Raise hand to activate display (much more responsive than on the Xiaomi Mi Band 3) – can be set to 5s, 10s, 15s auto screen-off

The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 has a multi-colored TFT screen with a diagonal size of 0.96 inches. The screen has a resolution of 80×160 pixels, which results in 186.34 DPI – this is more DPI than a 27” 4K monitor has.
Having a high DPI and a fairly large screen, the Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 can fit up to 89 characters per screen – which is almost 2 times more the amount of characters that the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 can display per screen.
Despite being a TFT screen instead of an OLED (like the Xiaomi Mi Band 3), the screen has excellent viewing angles and almost does not “negativizes” colors.
Moreover, the screen has 4 brightness settings that can be manually selected. The brightest setting is way brighter than the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 and DT NO1 F13 screen – even the 3rd setting is much brighter. This bright screen allows it to be more easily readable under strong lighting conditions and acceptably under direct sunlight (shading it with your hand is recommended for an easier reading)
The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 menus are: “Clock”, “Steps”, “Distance”, “Calories”, “Heart rate”, “Blood Pressure”, “Training”, “Message”, “Find Me” (smartphone will ring to find it), “Dial” (4 different clock screens can be chosen), “About”, “Reset”, “Off”, “Brightness”.

The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 are inline with most smartbands regarding comfort and fit.
Their robust metal and glass construction adds noticeable weight in comparison to the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 but being something that you will carry on your wrist and weighting only 47 g, they are actually not heavy – if you get the silicone strap the weight gets reduced to 27 grams.
The Diggro X3 / Microwear X3 will benefit from the usage paired with their app to get the most out of their advanced features – the app is named GloryFit.
