Xiaomi Mi Band is a series of popular fitness trackers that allows you to keep track of steps taken, calories burned, as well as measure heart rate and set a smart alarm.

How to connect Mi Band to iPhone?
In general, the connection of the Mi Band to the iPhone is almost the same as the pairing with Xiaomi smartphones.
After authorization in the application, you need to tie the bracelet to your smartphone and start using it.
Ideally, following the instructions in the program, everything should go smoothly, but sometimes situations may arise in which the iPhone does not see the Mi Band 2. This may be for several reasons:
- Mi Band is not unlinked from another account;
- your fitness tracker has communication problems;
- devices are far from each other;
- you bought a fake on Mi Band 2.
details about the problems that arise during connection can be found in the article:
For the Mi Band fitness bracelet, the iPhone application exactly repeats its Android version and is almost completely translated into Russian, with the exception of some points that you can easily figure out on your own.
Will it be indicated from whom the call is or only that the call is in progress or an SMS has been received? thank.
If you select English as the main language on your smartphone (the entire menu will be in English), then Mi Fit will display the option to display the caller’s name (at least on Android, this is exactly what is solved by installing a modified version of the application, which is not available for the iPhone).
Hello. The smartphone connects to the bracelet via Bluetooth, but the MiFit program does not see it. What could be the problem?
Good day. What is the smartphone model? The MiFit app currently supports smartphones no older than iPhone 5S (iPhone 5 is not supported) with an operating system no lower than iOS 9.0. Another problem, if the Mi Band is not new, may be that the bracelet is already tied to some other account.
MiFit app is not compatible with this device. iPhone 5 what to do? Please tell me.
Unfortunately, now you can install MiFit on smartphones not older than iPhone 5s with an operating system not lower than iOS 9.0.
Hello, I can not install the program on the iPhone 5. Writes: “does not match the device”.
Good day. You need to install the MiFit app from the App Store by clicking here.
Hello. Please tell me what to do if the iPhone 5s says “could not find the bracelet”, but it finds a pair in the Bluetooth settings.
Good day. There are two options:
1. In the Bluetooth settings, he really does not find it, but simply shows the previously saved device. You can check it by searching with another smartphone that has not yet “seen” this bracelet.
2. If he really finds a bracelet, but the program is buggy and does not want to connect to it, then there is only one solution. try to look more carefully around the Mi Band apartment yourself.
Is it possible to connect this bracelet to iPhone 6s with iOS 12?
Can i connect to iPhone 5? thank ?
Hello! I can’t pair Mi Band 3 with iPhone 6s Plus. Bluetooth does not see it. What to do?
MiBand 2 is new from DNS, there are no signs of a fake. I tried to create an account through the application, does not give after selecting the country. “No connection.” Created an account on the site. When entering the application, it says “Failed to sign in”.
Tried it on three different iOS and Android devices. All the same and also “Failed to sign in”. Within 6 hours.
Good day. Try installing some kind of VPN on your smartphone. Recently, due to the actions of Roskomnadzor, such problems have arisen when authorizing in MiFit.
Dmitry, thanks! Installed Thunder VPN on Android, the app is working. How much time is lost because of them!
I also have the same problem with dns. I’m thinking of going to talk to them so that they can connect or change them.
Please tell me what to do if I did everything correctly on all points, that is, I downloaded the Mi Fit application, registered and as soon as it comes to connecting the bracelet itself, I get an error and writes “check if the bracelet is not discharged or that it is far away is”.
It looks like the phone can’t see the bracelet. What is your smartphone? Requires at least iPhone 4S. Is the bracelet new? If not, it must be unlinked from the old account. And, of course, when pairing, the bracelet must be charged and close to the phone.
Why won’t the MiFit app download on my iPhone 5?
Judging by the description in the AppStore, the iPhone 5 is no longer supported by the program. To install the application, you need an iPhone 5s or newer, as well as iOS version 9.0 or higher.
Help me please. I downloaded the program for myself on the IPhone 5SE, created an account, but for the second day I can not enter the program, writes “I could not log in. Send error logs and help us find the problem? ” and another window pops up “Authorization error”. What am I doing wrong?
It’s hard to say, but an authorization error means that the username or password is entered incorrectly.
Vpn will help you.
But this is not enough for connecting a bracelet.
I went to the program using vpn and then
Good day. Can you tell me if it will work with the iPhone 4? I want to buy it, but I’m afraid that they won’t make friends with the device! Very worried!
Hello. The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 fitness bracelet will not work with the iPhone 4, since the phone has an outdated modification of the Bluetooth 2.1 wireless communication module, but the iPhone 4s already has version 4.0 installed and the bracelet will work with it.
Tell me, good people, to synchronize the Mi Band 2 bracelet with the iPhone 6 (I also tried it with the iPhone 5 and Samsung). The problem is that the phone simply does not see this unfortunate bracelet through Mi FIT and through another application. I created a new account, but if there was a link to the account of the previous owner, as far as I understand, a message would be displayed, like “the device is already synchronized with another phone”. And Bluetooth itself does not see it.
OK, read the tips! I downloaded the nRF connect application. it finds the bracelet and connects to it. At this time, using Mi FIT, I also try to connect with the bracelet, but he still does not see it! At the same time, through the settings in the phone and on the bracelet screen itself, you can see that the connection is established (via nRF connect), but there is no sense in this. There is also no way to enter the bracelet through the Bluetooth settings. it just writes that it is connected and that’s it. If you turn off Bluetooth on the phone, the bracelet will sadly vibrate 3 times and show a Bluetooth icon with a cross on the screen, they say the connection is broken, but don’t worry. I have not tried all these operations on other phones, since they are not mine, but it seems to me that everything will be the same. On the advice on some site I almost pressed the tracker itself into the phone screen when trying to synchronize. the effect is zero!
Question! Maybe this is due to an update of some kind of application, or maybe something with the firmware of the gadget itself? Or just throw that damn bracelet away?
MI BAND 4-UNBOXINGSET UP ON GALAXY A50FIRST UPDATE
Good day. In the event that the bracelet is tied to another account (via Mi Fit), you simply cannot tie it to your own, since it will not appear in the list of available devices, and therefore will not report that it has already been tied to another owner. But the fact that it is not on the Bluetooth list is another question. Maybe this is not a Mi Band, but a copy of it, and in the list of devices it is displayed somehow differently? Check out this article, in which I tested the original and the fake. For the “copy” it was required to use another application.

Today, in order to make their workouts as effective as possible and monitor the most important indicators of the body’s health, many people buy fitness trackers with a different set of functions and capabilities.
And now the long-awaited Xiaomi Mi Band 5 fitness bracelet came out, which can not only count steps and distance traveled, but also track sleep indicators, running speed, count heart rate and pace. In addition, its additional features are that the bracelet notifies its owner about an incoming call, SMS or notification from the application, and you can also connect an alarm clock that will go off even when the smartphone is completely disconnected.
To sync with an iPhone or Android phone, the Mi Band 5 bracelet uses a Bluetooth connection and an application called Mi Fit. However, users often face a problem when the phone does not see the Mi Band 5 bracelet. In this article, we will find out why this type of problem occurs and what to do about it.
The phone does not see Xiaomi Mi Band 5
What to do if the phone does not see the Xiaomi Mi Band 5? If, when trying to sync, your smartphone does not find the Mi Band bracelet, proceed as follows:
- Remove the installed version of the Mi Fit program.
- We find on the Internet and download one of the previous versions of the application and install it on the smartphone.
- Turn on Bluetooth, and then connect the bracelet to the computer via the USB cable included in the kit.
- We launch the already installed old version of the program, and then disconnect the bracelet capsule from the cord.
- If everything is done correctly, then in 90% of cases these actions lead to the fact that the application begins to “see” the bracelet using
- Next, install the latest version of the Mi Fit program (we do not delete the old version yet).
- We make a new synchronization through the latest version of the program, and after the tracker is successfully connected, you can delete the old version.
- Done! You have connected and synced Mi Band 5.
This method is based on the assumption that the watch is not synchronized with a certain smartphone due to the fact that Bluetooth does not work. This guess is checked very simply: you need to try to connect the tracker to another smartphone, as well as transfer files from one phone to another. This will give you the opportunity to know if the guess is correct. We act according to this plan:
- First, just turn off and then turn on Bluetooth;
- We try to connect again, if it doesn’t work, turn off Bluetooth and restart the phone;
- Then we try to synchronize again, if it didn’t work out. feel free to go to the next method.
This method is based on the assumption that the bracelet has already been connected to a specific phone. In the event that the Mi Band bracelet simply refuses to connect at some point or the previously created connection is lost, proceed according to the following plan:
- Open the Mi Fit app on your smartphone;
- Go to the “Profile” tab and tap on our bracelet in the list of connected devices;
- You will see a notification that there is no connection with the bracelet. turn the page down and click on the “Disconnect”. “Ok” button;
- Close the Mi Fit application completely (in the task manager), and then start again and try to connect the gadget to the smartphone again. After the LED indicators on the bracelet start blinking, select the type of connected device in the program.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is now connected to the phone. Since synchronization occurs with the same Mi account, you should not worry about the safety of your data. all previously collected statistics will be saved in your account and will continue to be collected after the bracelet is successfully linked to the phone again.

After launching the Samsung app, you should see the total number of steps taken by the bracelet. If this data is not available, then check how the application displays the steps.

How to connect bracelets from Xiaomi and Huawei to Samsung Health. And also why and who needs it?
All modern fitness bracelets differ little from each other, starting with appearance and ending with a standard set of sensors and functions (pedometer, heart rate monitor, accelerometer and, at best, GPS). The main struggle is at the software level.
Some companies focus on sleep tracking algorithms, while others implement convenient activity and training reports. But there is one application, the functionality of which is superior to all other solutions. We are talking about Samsung Health with Together, which unites millions of users into one large community, turning daily walking into an exciting competition with people from all over the world:
We have already written about the benefits of such applications and, in particular, about competitions in Samsung Health. You can get acquainted with them using the links below:
The only problem is that none of the applications we are considering (Mi Fit for Mi Band bracelets or Huawei Health for Honor Band trackers) support data synchronization with Samsung Health.
In this article, we will show you how to “make friends” these fitness trackers with the app from Samsung to start “joint walks” with other users around the world.!
How to connect Amazfit Bip or Xioami Mi Band to Samsung Health?
If you use one of the Xiaomi bracelets, it means that the Mi Fit application is already installed on your smartphone and the bracelet is successfully tied to it. If, suddenly, you have not yet tied your Mi Band to your smartphone and do not know how to do it. read the details in the article about Mi Band 3.
In order for the data on steps, workouts and sleep to be uploaded to Google Fit, you need to do the following:
- Open Mi Fit app
- Go to the Profile tab
- Select Add accounts
- Go to the Google Fit section and click the Add Google Fit button
- In the window that appears, select your Google Fit account
- If the account is successfully connected, the Stop syncing with Google Fit button will appear at the bottom (see the 4th screenshot)
- Close the application
That’s all! Now the data from the bracelet goes to Mi Fit, from there it is uploaded to Google Fit, after which the Health Sync application automatically transfers it to Samsung Health.
How will we connect bracelets to Samsung Health?
It is impossible to bind third-party bracelets to the Samsung app, as mentioned above. Therefore, we will go the other way and do the following:
- Install the Health Sync application on your smartphone, which will upload activity data from Google Fit to Samsung Health
- Linking Google Fit and Samsung Health with Health Sync
- Set up data synchronization with Google Fit in the bracelet application
Thus, we get the following data transmission chain: Bracelet application. Google Fit. Health Sync. Samsung Health
All this will work in the background without your participation. All data will be automatically transferred from the bracelet to Samsung Health.
Which app to download for the fitness bracelet?
In the table below you can find the most common applications for fitness bracelets by manufacturer:
|Amazfit (BIP, Amazfit Band 5, etc.)||Zepp (formerly Amazfit) or Mi Fit|
|Honor Band (all versions)||Huawei Health|
|Samsung||Galaxy Wearable and Samsung Health|
|Realme||Realme Realme Link|
|Hey plus||Hey plus|
|Fitness bracelets |
from lesser known manufacturers
Wear Fit 2.0
As it became clear from the table, almost every major manufacturer has developed a proprietary application for connection. Less well-known brands can use different applications to connect, depending on the functionality and features of the bracelets. The name of the software recommended by the manufacturer can be found in the user manual supplied with the kit, or, often, on the bracelet screen in the form of a QR code for downloading.
So, we have decided with the applications what to do next and what not to do.?
- Make sure the fitness tracker is charged and turned on. Most tracker models do not have a power button. They turn on automatically when connected to a charger, and Xiaomi Mi Band, for example, is always on if it has a charged battery.
- The main mistake many users make is to open the Bluetooth settings in their smartphone and connect the fitness bracelet like any other Bluetooth device, such as headphones. You don’t need to do this. Sometimes, after such a connection, the application simply does not find the fitness bracelet, which can lead to the thought of a malfunction of the gadget. You need to connect a fitness bracelet exclusively through a proprietary mobile application.
- The second common mistake is being too lazy to register an account in the application. Although very few applications allow connecting the bracelet without registration. It is necessary to create an account for the safety of data in the event of a breakdown or loss of the phone.
- Another mistake is trying to connect a fitness bracelet to the phone that is already paired with another phone. First, you need to turn it off or reset it to factory settings, and then start connecting to your phone.
We will consider the pairing process itself step by step using the example of several popular fitness bracelets. All other models are connected in approximately the same way.
