In this guide we will see how to use the key with a soft-touch of the Mi Band 2 as a “magic button” to associate a series of operations where you can control the app, as we will see below.
The app to make the Mi Band 2 is still the most useful is called the Mi Band 2, Func Button, and is available to download at the end of the article.
