Not the cheapest price i saw here, but good price for those who missed earlier deals.
(AU $20.54) US $15.59 with Code AUGB10135
beware if you planning to change your mobile phone or reformat or something like that, it is impossible to connect to the new phone unless you follow the proper procedure. mine is become useless now.
could you elaborate on what the difficulty is?
The Mi Band is linked to your Mi Account, logging in with the account on different devices works fine, and you can unpair the Mi Band from within the app and connect it to another account
The problem I, and others, had was that when forgetting your password, you can sign up for another account using the same details and it writes over the original account settings and you can no longer pair or unpair the Mi Band
I had the same issue. If you can remember your account ID/Password no issues.
What the fudge… I never remember my passwords… For most accounts, I just keep a random set of characters+numbers+symbols and login from my phone. When my session expires, I Just click forgot password….. Does password recovery work for this issue…?
The password recovery works, but not if you create a second account with the same email and mobile number.
Still, the Mi Band actually works, just not with the Mi Fit app, but you can pair it with a third party app and it works similarly
@choofa: cool thanks.
I had similar problem my first band, it always shows "connection error please contact customer service…" sort of thing, even I left the battery dried out and recharged it.
After my wife's band had same issue, I figured out what happened to it, the band will store your Mi ID permanently once you connected it with your phone in the first time, by using the original MI ID/password(if you didn't change it) to login in the "Mi Fit"(IOS) it connected straight away, both my two bands work well now.
so are you saying on my phone i need to login with my wife phone and the mi band will works (ie connect) to my phone?
That's like "Inception" on steroid
@dealspider: "i need to login with my wife phone " sorry should be "i need to login with my wife account details "
@dragonindespair: Yes if you want to use your wife's MiBand. Basically your band is locked to one account.
That's not true. I've changed mine through 4 different phones and all I did was log in on the app on my new phone and it found the band automatically.
Try this code AUGB10135 to bring it down to (AU $20.54) US $15.59
so nice of you, how did you get the code?
The code was posted by GearBest rep here
After finding this deal earlier https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/335482 for AU $16.53/ US $12.99.this price is not much attractive.
Thanks to chadiwrx, price is bit closer to earlier deal now - (AU $20.54) US $15.59 with the discount code.
Yea agree. Would love to see that price again!
Now we just need a 40 cent deal on spare straps :p
Is there a kids version of this? All the "branded" kids versions seem really expensive?
What difference are you wanting in a kids version?
smaller, for kids that are 7yo
You could try and find a smaller band but it probably won't do. Non genuine bands don't seem to work as well. I am an adult and I use the smallest setting on my mi band, I think a 7 year old would probably struggle with a real band.
can anyone help me I put the code in and it says FIXED PRICE Coupon: $15.59 but the sub total goes up to AU$52.71….. what am i doing wrong?
May be you put more than 1 quantity. Code work for 1 per account I guess.!!!
Thanks, got the order in, let's hope it won't take too long to arrive. I had to input the code twice for the discount to be applied.
Chaomi band is always gone when i open ozb.
missed too, more deal on this band please!
