I just bought a Xiaomi mi-band 4 without a Android device.. Can I pair it with a PC?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Today I bought my mi-band 4, but The problem is that currently, I don't have access to any android device but just my Laptop, I really want to try out my mi-band 4 but there are no emulators that support Bluetooth...Later I tried Installing Android x86 (8.1) in Virtualbox, Got the VM successfully running but then I tried to install the mi-fit app but the app for some heck of a reason is not compatible with my Android x86 VM, I even side-loaded its APK from apkhere.com but it always crashed when every I load the app.

There got to be some way I can use my mi-band 4 with my PC, right?

But to be fair, Xiaomi Redmi phones usually cost around 100$US on AliExpress/GearBest/TaoBao. Try to look out for some deals (like Redmi 4X/5X) or even used stuff. XIaomi Mi A2 is a killer phone for its price at retail.

Purify your Windows 10, don't give Microsoft anything that you don't want to share.

There wouldn't be any supported way but if you are okay with the limitations (need to within bluetooth range of your laptop at all times) then you might be able to find a janky workaround. Or you could just buy a really cheap smartphone with the required version of android
