The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 that we have received in Spain is not that it has great improvements (beyond the PAI system) compared to its predecessor, but we must admit that the screen, both at the software and hardware level, is where we find the most change compared to what it offered the Mi Band 4. Among its novelties we find the possibility of change display elements.
The AMOLED screen of this Mi Band 5 It is slightly larger than that of the Mi Band 4. It measures 1.1 inches compared to the 0.95-inch screen of the Mi Band 4, which, although it does not make a big difference, does allow to alter the elements visible in the interface. The display now has smaller bezels and a larger area to display more information in 126 x 294 pixel resolution that supports 100% of the P3 color gamut. It also features a 2.5D tempered glass panel that protects the screen from scratches and abrasions.
¿How Is the information displayed on the bracelet changed? In the simplest way possible.
Configuring the screen of the Mi Band 5
When you wear the bracelet, by default you will see on the screen time and date information, the battery level and the step count you take in the day but this does not mean that it should always be this way. The bracelet offers you the option to keep the time but change the count of steps taken by other indications such as: heart rate, calories expended per day, steps per hour, heart rate in real time, scheduled events, new forms of counting steps or PAI data
To alter this visualization you should not resort to My FitAs might be thought at first, but rather, you must access the Settings from the bracelet by sliding your finger down or up until you reach the “More” section. Once inside, scroll to the bottom again and select the “Screen” option.
Here you can alter the screen elements by clicking on the gear-shaped icon that appears just below the information on the screen. By clicking on it, we access the display configuration panel.
As you will see, the lower box becomes blue and, when we click on it, we will alternate between the different elements that the screen of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5. When you have chosen the one you want, you simply have to press and hold your finger on the panel for a few seconds and that’s it.
