First, make sure that your Mi Band 2 is compatible with your device’s operating system. It works with both Android and iOS devices, including iPhones.
If you’re using an Android device, ensure that the Mi Fit app is installed from the Google Play Store. For iOS users, the app can be downloaded from the App Store.

If you’re using a feature phone or a device without a compatible operating system, you can still use the Mi Band 2. Simply pair it with your phone using the Mi Fit app, and it will sync the data when you connect to a compatible device later.
Remember to keep your Mi Band 2’s battery charged, as a low battery can sometimes cause connectivity issues. Also, ensure that the Mi Band 2 is within range of your device and that there are no obstructions interfering with the Bluetooth signal.
