One of the best-selling products of Xiaomi, if we except their mobiles, are their smart bracelets. Over the last few years they have been improving and for two generations, if we count the current one, they allow us to customize the covers.
Xiaomi Mi Band 5 review: improving the excellent
We have been using the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 as a smart bracelet for two weeks. We tell you our opinion in this analysis.
In this way we can change the aesthetics of the main screen, being able to choose between simple models, others funny and others with a lot of information.
How to change the covers of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5
A few days ago we analyzed the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, a bracelet that I still use and that, like the Mi Band 4, lets us change the covers.
To do it on the bracelet we have to hold the finger on the screen for three seconds, at which time the bracelet will vibrate and we will be able to slide up and down to choose other covers.
Obviously we can only choose those that are downloaded on the bracelet.
How to send mobile phone covers to the bracelet
If we want to download new covers we have to open the Mi Fit application, go to the third icon at the bottom, the Profile, and select in the section My Devices the Mi Smart Band 5.
The first section is the Store, where we must enter to look at all the covers that are available. Click on the one we like and touch the orange button
How to edit covers
But all that is not the only thing we can do. In the Mi Band 5 Xiaomi has introduced the possibility of customizing some covers, choosing items to display.
When we enter the selection of covers inside the bracelet we see that some of them have the icon of a nut at the bottom. If we click on that icon, it is explained to us that we are entering the edit page.
There we click on the V-shaped mark and once we do, the configurable sections light up. If we click on it, they will be modified and a turquoise box will show us the name of the chosen function. We can choose the time, events, steps, heart rate, calories and many more.
To confirm what we have to do is press on it for a long time. That will save the cover and set it as the current one.
