To use the Xiaomi Band, you first need to create a Mi Account since all the fitness information is stored in the Mi Cloud.
Once you have set up your Mi account, you can begin to use the Mi Fit App.
Given I used the pre-installed app, the Mi Fit App had to update to the latest version. Xiaomi is well known for constant software updates.
After the newest version of the App is reinstalled, you can then start to pair your Xiaomi Band.
It turns out that the Xiaomi Band actually has a touch sensitive surface which acts as a button that you use for pairing.
After pairing, the Xiaomi Fit App automatically then uploads the latest fitness data from the Xiaomi Band.
The main screens include step, weight, and sleep tracking. There are other functions like route tracking where you can use GPS to see where you have been.
If you purchase Xiaomi supported smart shoes, you can also connect these shoes to the Xiaomi Fit App.
The Xiaomi Band looks great, and if you also purchase the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro Cover to go with your Mi Note Pro, together they look classy and stylish.
