I was given a bracelet Xiaomi Mi Band 2 as a present. I try to connect it with my phone, and as far as I understand, some Mi Account is required. What is it and how to create it?

What is Mi Account

Mi Account is an account for Xiaomi services. It significantly expands the functionality of some devices (for example, phones), while some devices cannot fully work without it. Your bracelet Mi Band 2 belongs to the latter, because it synchronizes the data with the help of Mi Account. That is, without this account you will not be shown statistics, and the notifications will not work at all.

How to register Mi Account

Mi Account can be registered through almost any application for Xiaomi devices or through a device with a MIUI shell (firmware for Xiaomi phones based on the Android operating system).

Consider the simplest option - through the application. To synchronize the Xiaomi Mi Band bracelet with the phone, you need to install the Mi Fit program. You can use your e-mail address or your phone number as a login.

Open the application and click the "Create an account" button:

If you want to use the phone number as your login, click "Create using a phone number". Enter the phone number or email address and click the "Create Mi Account" button. At the next step, you will need to come up with a password and will only have to activate your account.

You will receive a text message or a mail containing a code, depending on the option that you have chosen. After that you will be able to use all the functions of the app.
