Scan for any nearby Mi Band or provide your Mi Band MAC address to find it straight away.
You only need to specify which Mi Band you want to find. This can be done in 2 different ways:
🔘Type in the Bluetooth MAC address:
You can find the MAC address of your Mi Band inside the Mi Fit application. Open your Mi Fit app and click on the Profile tab, under the My devices section click the Mi Band row. There you will be able to find the MAC address at the very bottom of the screen.
🔘Or scan nearby devices:
Alternatively, you can start the Scanner and wait for your Mi Band to be listed. Once you see it in the list just click on it and you are ready to go.
Finally, click the "Find Mi Band" button and start moving slowly towards the area where the signal strength increases. The higher the signal the closer is your Mi Band.
🐞Known Mi Band limitations:
By default the Mi Band has some limitations that are worth being aware of, fortunately all of them have a solution.
⚡ By default the Mi Band only allows one simultaneous connection.
This means that the Finder in the app will not be allowed to connect to your Mi Band if there is already another phone or tablet connected. This can be solved by disabling the "Pairing restriction" option in the Mi Fit app. Open your Mi Fit app and click on the Profile tab, under the My devices section click the Mi Band row and there you will be able to find the "Pairing restriction" option.
⚡ By default the Mi Band is not discoverable.
This means that the Scanner in the app will not be able to list your Mi Band if it is already connected to any phone or tablet. This can be solved by enabling the "Discoverable" option in the Mi Fit app. Open your Mi Fit app and click on the Profile tab,under the My devices section click the Mi Band row and there you will be able to find the "Discoverable" option.
You can find more information under the Help section inside the app.
