Xiaomi Mi Band 6 NFC: here's how to use all payment cards without restrictions

Wearable devices are now part of our daily life, alerting us to the arrival of notifications, monitoring our physical activity but also our sleep. Useful to encourage us to move and often also to keep our health under control, but one thing loudly is asked by users who love wearables, that is the possibility of paying directly by approaching the wrist at the end of POS, something that very few specimens allow and those few have a very high cost.

All this belongs to the past, because with the advent of Xiaomi Mi Band 6 NFC (whose name says it all) things change radically. In fact, the support for NFC connectivity offers all the benefits of the case by allowing us to use payment cards (credit, debit and prepaid) directly on our wrist. At the moment, however, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 NFC can only be used with Mastercard payment cards on the Nexi circuit, but above all the supported banks are not the entirety of what the financial landscape offers.

Xiaomi Mi Band 6 NFC: here's how to use all payment cards without restrictions

So you may be thinking that if you are not among the customers of these banks it is useless to equip yourself with a Mi Band 6 NFC, but in reality there is a solution to the use of all the banks and therefore payment cards in circulation. Solution that does not require any computer or modding knowledge, but you just need to download an application, free among other things, directly from the Play Store whose name is Curves.

we band 6

As the official website mentions, Curves combine all your credit, debit and loyalty cards into one. You can also add receipts. So it's the only card you need to bring. It's the only pin you need to remember. It is precisely in this way that the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 NFC will be compatible not only with Mastercard, but also with Visa and / or in any case with all the cards issued by the various credit institutions.


Payment with Curves it takes place both via a dedicated application, Google Pay and Apple Wallet, but if you prefer you can also receive a real physical card, completely free of charge, upon registration. I forgot to mention that the app is available for both Android and iOS systems.

Actually there is poco to say more, because once registered and logged into the app, all you have to do is associate all the payment cards you have or want to dedicate to mobile payments, simply by clicking on the + button and then entering the data relating to the card. Nothing could be simpler, although it should be noted that for the validation of the card, you will initially be charged a value of € 0,88 which will be subsequently returned. I do not want to advertise Curve too much, even if for the record it must be said that the convenience of this application also lies in being able to decide on which of the associated cards to charge the amount even after spending. Curve basically offers a free plan and if you want to try it too, you can do it through the banner below in order to get € 5 welcome and a 1% cashback.

Well, we have therefore seen how easy it is to circumvent the "system" and be able to pay with Mi Band 6 NFC using any card, but now let's see how to add a card to Xiaomi's wearable. You just need to start the Mi Fit app and go to the voice related to the band. Then scrolling down, so to speak in the menu where you find the possibility to associate Alexa, you will find the item Cards.

At this point, tapping on the relevant icon you can add the credit / debit card, following the guided procedure. Of course you will need to know the card data, such as the protection code, etc., which can be entered manually or you can use the camera to take a picture of the card and let the AI ​​automatically recognize the useful data.

We just have to pay with the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 NFC in contact less mode, by swiping to the left starting from the home, choose the card with which you want to make the payment, then tapping on the button that will appear in the lower area of ​​the display and bring the smart bracelet close to the POS terminal within 1 minute.

All not quite… Curve does not support the Maestro circuit. Is there any solution for this?

You're recommending an app which, on Google play store, has less than 1000 downloads, whose contact is a personal Gmail account ([email protected]), whose privacy policy is lifted from a company called 'lucky club' and requires us to give that app all our banking details.

If it looks like a scam and behaves like a scam it probably is a scam.

Thanks but no thanks

But we have to put the card data generated by curves in the app not the one we already have, right?

How do we set up automatic debit on the card we want?
