The advantage of the solution from the Chinese brand is not only practicality, excellent functionality, attractive appearance, but also a very affordable price, which no other manufacturer can compete with today.
Xiaomi has traditionally taken a responsible approach to the package. The buyer receives a neat box made of ordinary gray cardboard. After opening it, the user immediately sees the core of the gadget. Below is a high-quality rubber strap, a USB cable for charging (the charger itself is not included), as well as instructions for a Xiaomi fitness bracelet.

First you need to select the type of device, and when you are asked to click on the gadget, you need to lightly tap it with your finger.

Registration of Xiaomi fitness bracelet
Before using the Xiaomi fitness bracelet, you need to register your own account, which is done through a browser or through a mobile application. The first option involves filling out a questionnaire on the official website, indicating the country, email address and date of birth. When filling out, it is better to uncheck the box “Stay up to date with news and offers from the Mi store”, because this is a proposal for sending newsletters written in Chinese.

After completing all these actions, the user will be prompted to enter a password, its confirmation and a verification code. Then you can enter the system via login (mail or phone) and the created password.
Additionally, it offers the possibility of registration through the application directly from its interface. Everything goes here in the same way, only when filling out the questionnaire it is better to initially use an email address, because for users of Russia (CIS countries) the possibility of registering by phone number has not yet been debugged.
Mi Band gestures
Inside the Mi Fit app, there are three separate tabs: Activity, Profile, and Notifications. Statistics provide the ability to view the following information:
Data on the steps taken with a detailed display of the activity of the current day.
2. Statistics for previous periods.

After installing it, check the menu. Now the title of the sections and their description should be in Russian. Thus, we can save money by buying a device for the Chinese market, as it is cheaper. Then connect it to the phone and update the firmware so that the Russian will “come” to the bracelet.
Setting the screen lock for the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 fitness tracker
The screen lock in Mi Band performs an important function. It turns off the touch display at a specified time. Thus, it saves an important resource of the fitness tracker, its battery charge. But often a few seconds are not enough to fully use the bracelet. It often turns off, preventing us from choosing one or another menu item on the clock.
Let’s fix that and set a little more time before auto-blocking:
- Touch the touch screen of the Xiaomi device again to find the “” item in the menu;
The maximum time before blocking on Xiaomi Mi Band 4 is 10 seconds. This should be enough to decide on the choice of settings or sections.
Another important setting is an additional screen lock. This function in the device acts as a lock and prevents menu items from opening when we accidentally touch the display. Or by accidentally interacting with the temperature to which it reacts, such as warm water in the shower.

Check the checkbox to activate it. To test the function, wait until the screen turns off automatically after 10 seconds. Then touch it as you did before. A small hint will appear on the screen that you need to swipe down to unlock it.

One of the important parameters of the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 fitness tracker is the brightness of its screen. Very often we have to contact him on the street under the brightly shining sun. Therefore, if the device screen is dim, we will not see anything on it. In Mi 4, the brightness is sufficient to clearly see all the elements on the screen in daylight, even with an outstretched hand. But by default the brightness is not set to the maximum level.
To set it up:
- Swipe up or down the screen to find the “Advanced” main menu item;
Now press the button below to go to the main screen of the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 fitness bracelet. Or to the previous menu item. Also, users often have to look for a lock screen setting. By default, it is configured for 5 seconds, which is almost always lacking.
Problems when configuring tracker connection
In some cases, users have difficulty pairing the tracker with a mobile phone. Perhaps at the time of setting up and connecting the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 fitness bracelet, you made some mistake.
