You have purchased an Mi Band 2 or an Mi Band 3 to monitor your physical activity and to receive notifications on your bracelet while you have your smartphone in your pocket or bag, but you do not know how to use it? In order to fully utilize the potential of this inexpensive smart bracelet, you need to install some apps that let you improve the basic features. I suggest you try one of the following apps for Mi Band 2 and Mi Band 3 that you find on this list. I will point out both the links to download the official app for Mi Band (both Android and iOS) and third-party apps, able to add new features very interesting that you would never have with the app by default.

App for Mi Band 2 and Mi Band 3

Mi Fit (official, Android and iOS)

The app for Mi Band 2 and Mi Band 3 that everyone installs as soon as they buy the device is Mi Fit, the official app of Xiaomi for bracelet management. Once you open the package of the Mi Band 2 you just open the app and synchronize the smartphone and the bracelet via Bluetooth (which must always be on!). Now the app will be able to count your steps, the hours of sleep, the quality of sleep, the calories burned, the miles travelled and you will receive notifications for some apps you have configured. Nothing exceptional, but this app is necessary to update the firmware of the bracelet so better to install it.

The Mi Fit app is available for both Android and iOS, and is currently the only app you can install on Apple devices to get compatibility with the Mi Band 2 and Mi Band 3. Below are the links for free download.

Notify & Fitness for Mi Band

The first app for third-party Mi Band 2 that I suggest you try to make the most of the Xiaomi bracelet is Notify & Fitness for Mi Band. This app, in addition to the features already seen on Mi Fit, offers the possibility to get long-lasting and personalized notifications, including the sender’s name from which you receive notifications and also a part of the text (very useful for chat notifications or for text message). It also allows you to receive notifications for incoming calls or missed calls so you never forget a call again. Fitness side brings the integration with Google Fit or the Xiaomi scale, so you can really keep track of your weight and your performance in the gym or in training.

The app is available as a free demo (with restrictions) on all Android devices at the following link. If you intend to buy the full version it is available as an in-app purchase.

With this app you can customize any functionality of the Mi Band 2, from notifications for calls to sleep mode, with the ability to set a sleep mode with which to sleep for short periods with the right amount of minutes (otherwise it is easy to wake up stale, exhausted and unproductive). Excellent charts to monitor physical activity and sleep patterns.
