Xiaomi Mi Band With Nexus 5 Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Yesterday I posted unboxing images of my Xiaomi Mi Band. I started using it and tried to pair Mi Band for the first time with my Nexus 5 with OS Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

I downloaded the Mi Fitapp from Playstore, and tried to pair it, but unfortunately after trying many time I was not able to pair it. I tried all the possible ways to pair like;

  • Charged Mi Band to 100%
  • Removed all the previously paired devices name from my phone
  • Changed my location, since I have different wireless routers near my office desk
  • Restart phones several times
  • Clearing phone cache, (including individual for bluetooth and mi-band app)

So after trying all possibilities, I was able to figure out the solution and was able to successfully pair it.

Solution : Pairing Xiaomi Mi Band With Nexus 5 Android 6.0 Marshmallow

  1. Close Mi Fit Band Application if it is running on your phone.
  2. Download “Bluetooth 4.0 Scanner” from Playstore
  3. Enable GPS on your phone if you have disabled it, as bluetooth 4.0 need GPS.
  4. Run the application, and select “Low Energy Scan” from drop down and click on “Scan” button
  5. You will find Mi Band on the list of devices in bluetooth 4.0
  6. Now go to Mi Fit Application and try to pair it, you should be able to pair it successfully.
  7. Now after successfully pairing, you can feel free to uninstall Bluetooth 4.0 Scanner.

Hope this helps you 🙂
