This feature is available only on Mi Band 4 and is not technically possible to implement it on other bracelets, please do not ask for it.
Gesture control is an advanced feature that brings new life to your smart bracelet and offers you countless number of new possibilities by allowing you to assign many of our predefined actions to various gesture swipes.
Swipe gesture is when you swipe on your turned on display to the side and back (you must begin the swipe on your watch face screen).
In case you are wondering why swipe gestures and not button presses - it's not technically possible to monitor just button presses on this bracelet type, that's why we invented this swipe gesture feature for you so you can get the most out of your bracelet!
Thanks to our sensor control actions, you can even control volume, media playback or heart rate monitor by simple gestures of your hand. Ever wanted to just put your thumb up to raise volume of your music? With Mi Band Tools, you can do this and much more!
So you're not overwhelmed with many gesture swipes, we do offer advanced switch profile feature, which basically lets you to navigate through your own custom virtual menu to perform your custom actions. Learn more about profile switching.
In addition to our fully customizable integrated gesture control, we've written an event plugin for you. Use Tasker or other similar automation application to simply setup an event that will let you know when a gesture swipe on your bracelet was performed. We'll even provide you variables to tell you how many times that happened. Learn more about plugin integration.
