This is what I like most about the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4
I have been with the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 for a few days and, before publishing the analysis, I wanted to share with you what are, in my opinion, its five keys.
To use the Google Maps directions on the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 you just have to do the following:
- Install My Band Maps. It is an app that costs 0.99 euros.
- Make sure that the Mi Band Maps option is activated in My Fit notifications.
- Go to Google Maps and verify that notifications are active.
- You must activate access to the application notifications.
- Find the destination you want to reach, trace the route and choose the option to walk.
- Keep your phone: the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 will vibrate every time you have to change direction showing the indications on the screen.
- In the app options you can modify the distance of notifications and other settings, such as the type of warning.
One of the drawbacks is that the wristband screen is reduced, something that slightly prevents the display of long indications. Further, direction arrows are somewhat small Due to Xiaomi software. Even so you will not have any problem: if you usually walk with Google Maps, and you bought a Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4, the combo with the Mi Band Maps application will be very useful.
My Band Maps is a paid application: it costs € 0.99. Worth what it costs and lacks in-app ads and purchases. In addition, it is fully adapted to the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4.
