Before connecting, completely charge the Mi Band battery. It is also necessary to install the Mi Fit application on the smartphone, give it all permissions, as well as activate the Bluetooth wireless integral.

  • Launch Mi Fit. If you do not have an Mi account, you need to register it;
  • After registration, find the “Profile” tab. and menu item “My devices”. Click on the “Add device” button;
  • In the list, select the Bracelet menu. The search and automatic connection of Mi Band to iOS will begin, after which you will be asked what data you want to allow the application to assemble, store and process. If you want to gain full experience from using Mi Band, I recommend that you give all the required permits.

Compatibility Mi Band 3 and iPhone

Fortunately, Xiaomi simply could not bypass the issue of “cooperation” between them and Cupertinists. And as a result, you can easily connect any Xiaomi Smart device to iPhones, including fitness bracelet Mi Band 3. At the same time, the quality of the steam work of devices is in no way inferior to Android, and some users even claim that the bracelet works better in conjunction with iPhone.

During the first binding, the process of updating the firmware renewal is most likely to start. Only a stable Internet connection is needed and a little time.

The owners of the iPhone always had less wide possibilities in the aspect of the installation of custom firmware. At first, before the release of the international version of the device there was no Russian language on it and there were small bugs.

Users made changes to the fitness bracelet, wrote custom translations. And to install all this, it was an Android device that was always required. The owners of the “apples” had to wait for the release of the global firmware to get at least a Russian.speaking Inteiis. Or re.rack to Android, change it on the mi band, and again associate it with the iPhone.

Features Mi Band 2

Work with Mi Band on the iPhone has some nuances that will be described below.


As mentioned above, the cardiac rhythm counter does not work in constant mode and requires separate activation through the MI HR application. After starting the application, you need to wait a few more seconds while the first data is received by the bracelet and transferred to the application.

In addition, for the correct operation of the pulsometer, it is necessary to adjust the bracelet strap so that it tightly fitting the wrist to the skin. Only in this case, the accuracy of the received heart rhythm is ensured.

When weakening the strap, the bracelet can translate incorrect data and underestimate the real indicator of the heart rhythm.

In the photo below. the appearance of the pulsometer sensor.

Getting accurate measurements is possible only at rest, without waving the hand on which Mi Band is fixed.


It must be borne in mind that the bracelet is attached to the arm. Accordingly, the number of steps is calculated, pushing away from waves with his hands while walking. The device monitors its movements in space due to accelerometer. Therefore, deviations in the calculation of steps are possible with banal gestures, during a conversation, with active waves of hands.

However, the arising error in this case is small and does not lead to serious deviations from real indicators.

Important! When training on the treadmill, the hands are on the handrail of the simulator at rest. Accordingly, the number of steps will not be calculated.

Calorius counter

No need to nourish illusions about the accuracy of data on lost calories. The fact is that this indicator is calculated on the basis of several indicators: weight, height, age, number of steps, distance traveled, pulsometer data.

Nevertheless, to obtain indicative information about the cost of calories, these data can be used.

Pros and cons

Any thing in our life has both positive and negative features. After all, as you know, nothing perfect exists.

Mi Band has the following advantages:

  • Small weight,
  • Small size,
  • Stylish appearance,
  • Moor and dust protection,
  • shock resistance,
  • Ease of operation due to a soft and comfortable silicone strap,
  • Great autonomy. the bracelet has been working for a month without recharging.
  • Not the most successful option for the fastener, since the bracelet is difficult to wear quickly and the first time,
  • The fastener is not the most reliable and in clothes with long sleeves can be unfastened,
  • The small font on a small display is not suitable for everyone. in people with weakened vision it will be difficult to perceive information,
  • turning on the screen by a wave of a hand does not always work correctly and false triggles are possible.

In fairness, it is worth noting that the minuses of the bracelet are not the most critical and you can put up with them, given the positive qualities of the device.

Mi Band is an excellent and high.quality device that can be an excellent help, beginning athletes and wanting to monitor their health.

Connecting a bracelet to the iPhone, although it has some nuances and features, occurs without any problems. And even despite the difficulties, for little money you get a functional device that also reminds of insufficient activity, vibrating and inviting for a walk.
