Troubleshooting & Settings

You should note these things before connecting:

  1. Make sure that your phone’s Bluetooth is on
  2. Select China as the country/region on App
  3. The supported Wifi network for the connection is only 2.4GHz
  4. Make sure that the standby mode is turned on of the walking pad (after the wifi indication blinks)

Xiaomi WalkingPad A1 and A1 Pro use Bluetooth to connect itself to the phone. Once the app detects the device, it grabs an IP from the 2.4GHz Wifi network. The connection is only possible if the router is DHCP, can send the IP to the WalkingPad and the whole setup is updated on the Mi cloud. If your router is non-DHCP, or there’s a firewall on the router, it won’t connect.

Note: Once you have connected the walking pad to the app, it will be in Novice mode and the maximum speed you can reach is only 3 km/h. So you need to go through the Novice mode to move to the Auto-mode where the speed will increase from 3 km/h.

  1. I need change belt at wiaomi a1 pro wolking pad. But I don’t know how. Can you recomend a youtube video or some instruccions, please?

  2. Hi please can any one help.
    I have just purchased the Xiaomi p 1a walking pad, I am not able to add my device to the app 🙁
    Thanks in advance

  3. Hi, can we please have the same info for the walkpad R1?
    Also, I can’t connect to the app in china as I need to have a chinese mobile number, so any suggestions on how to connect to the walkpad and unlock the speed?

    1. Yes, there’s a problem with the walking pad R1. The app won’t let you sign in via email but instead the phone number. That is why the WalkingPad is known as China’s exclusive walking pad. At the moment there’s no solution to this. You have to find a Chinese with a phone number to remove the limit. Let’s hope the developers of the app know about this and fix this in their app update.

  4. I installed the app and connected to the Walkingpad. But everything is in Chinese in the app. I can’t have it in english like on your pictures. I guess I can’t change the country from China to Canada because I will lose the option for the Walkingpad. Please help!

    1. You can change the language from here:
      1) Open MiJi (mi home) App
      2) Click on Profile (Bottom right-hand icon)
      3) Click on Settings (Middle of the screen, most bottom category)
      4) Click on Language (Most bottom category)
      5) Change your language

      Please set the default location to China Mainland. If not there will be connectivity issues.

      I hope this helps.
