Mi Band 4 won't pair to Android device

Posted 31st Jul 2021
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting a second hand mi band 4 to pair to Android device?

I'm fairly sure the device has been factory reset already, it has the green pairing screen and Chinese writing.

It's 100% charged up.
Latest Mi Fit app installed.
Bluetooth and location turned on and new account created in Mi Fit app.

When trying to pair I just get the message 'Couldn't pair, reset the band and try again'.

I've watched loads of youtube videos and this post is my last resort! Thanks so much for any help
