Mi Band Review
Getting a Mi Band can be a great way to stay in touch with your friends and family, and it can help you track your activity. It is waterproof, and can sync with other apps on your phone. You can vote for your favorite sport, and it can vibrate when you have a call.
Having a water-resistant wearable can be a necessity for some. Water resistance has become a must have feature in fitness trackers. A 5 ATM waterproof rating means that the device can withstand water pressure up to 50 meters. This is the same as the waterproof rating of the Fitbit Inspire 2.
The Mi Band has many cool features, such as a heart rate monitor, call reminder, remote music playback, and a bright OLED display. There is also a built-in location beacon that allows you to track your location. Using the Mi Fit App, you can track heart rate, speed, distance, and calories burned. The calorie counter is pretty nifty and will help you figure out if you’re on track with your daily calorie count.
The Mi Band also features a built-in motion sensor, so you’ll know when you’re walking, running, or working out. The band also comes with a handy wrist strap. The strap is made of quality silicon and is durable and comfortable. It can fit any wrist size. The strap comes in two colors, black and blue.
Vibrate when you have a call
Whether you have a call or SMS notification on your Mi Band, it is possible to set a custom vibration pattern for your wearable to enhance your experience. You can customize this function using the Mi Band Tools app.
The app will not only allow you to set your own custom notifications, but it will also allow you to delay call alerts or mute calls in general. You can also set the display to show a caller’s name when you receive a call. It also has an event reminder feature. You can set reminders to remind you of upcoming birthdays, graduations, and more.
In addition to the usual incoming call notifications, the Mi Band will also notify you of incoming SMS notifications, and show the contents of an SMS on your wrist. You can also customize the vibration pattern for various functions.
The Mi Band tools app also has a very clever feature that will let you set a custom notification time, or set your own custom notification pattern.
Sync with other apps
Depending on which model of Mi Band you own, you can easily sync your health data with Google Fit or Apple Health. But there are also third-party apps you can use to sync with your Mi Band. These include Notify and Fitness, Tools & Mi Band, and Find Mi Band.
The Notify for Mi Band app requires a pro version. You can download it from the Play Store. But you must have the app installed on the same phone as your Mi Fit app. Once the app is installed, you can start syncing your steps, heart rate, and activity. You can also add custom background images to the app. However, if your Android phone’s screen is turned off, the app doesn’t work.
The Mi Fit app is also available for download on the iPhone. You can use it to pair your Mi Band with your phone, unpair it, and share your system notifications. But the app doesn’t have all of the features of Google Fit or Apple Health.
