The Xiaomi Mi Band 4 may feature a similar look to its predecessor, but the all-new colour touchscreen adds an entirely fresh element to choosing a different face.

Gone are the days of monochrome screens for the fitness tracker, with the Mi Band 4 now allowing you to swap out the drab options of old for a variety of colourful designs.

And, best of all, it's simple to find and switch between new faces. Below, we'll teach you just how to change these on the Mi Band 4 and highlight some of the best options you can select for your main screen.

How to change faces on Mi Band 4

1. Open the Mi Fit app on your iOS or Android device.

2. From the app's dashboard, select the 'Profile' tab.

3. Choose the tracker, then tap 'Band display settings'.

4. This will take you to a gallery view of the available faces for you to choose from. Tapping on each will bring up a bigger preview, and tell you the theme's name.

5. Once chosen, tap 'Sync watch face', hold your Mi Band 4 near your phone and the swap should happen instantly.

Best Xiaomi Mi Band 4 faces



This relatively subtle theme says it all on the tin – it's blue-tinted, with a step counter at the bottom for at-a-glance information. The time can be really clearly read, and, depending on what band you're using, it can contribute to a sleek look.



The Mi Band 4 is a thoroughly modern device, but you might be looking for a touch of old-school class to accent it. You can't get analogue faces on the Mi Band 4, but this ornate display might tick the same boxes – it's all very Great Gatsby.



Another clean look is offered by 'Structure'. This one swaps up the clock a little, and includes a step-counter ring at the bottom, to give a bit of a visual aid towards fulfilling your daily targets. With a subtle design in the background, it's a nice option for a modern display.



Perhaps you're looking for less 'modern' and more 'futuristic', though. In that case, 'Hi-tech' could be a great option. This display channels a bit of that Tron neon to give a science fiction styling to your wrist.

Night bloom


If you want a functional display, 'Night bloom' gets you plenty of information in a tight space. You get a step counter, as well as a heart rate indicator, plus all the requisite time and date details. It's got a nice, low-key background to go with the package.



If you're after a more colourful display, we really like 'Forest', which offers a visual version of your step counter in front of an iconographic forest illustration. It's got an upbeat vibe to it, and could be a nice option for younger users of the Mi Band 4, too.



A similarly illustrated look is offered by this extra-terrestrial theme. This display has a really easy to read clock display, and a progress bar for your daily steps.



On the funkier end of the scale, 'Sunlight' brings a bit of brightness to your wrist. The typography and layout make it a really unique watch face, and it also packs in a lot of information. Something about that white and yellow combination is uplifting, right?

Glitch art


Neon is in vogue, and especially appropriate if you're a regular at the gym or at exercise classes. 'Glitch art' isn't as glitchy as its name suggests. It's actually a really clear theme using neon-blue accents and bold whites, with users able to get a quick look at the day, date and their step progress.



A slightly more subdued interpretation of neon can be found in 'Planet'. With a purple glow from the back and vibrant blue numbering in the clock, it's an eye-catching face if the colour scheme's up your street. Again, like most options on this list, you'll also get a quick look at your steps, as well as the day and date.
