Xiaomi Mi Band adds Google Fit support.


Taking a ride on the launch of Xiaomi’s Mi Store the US, UK, Germany and France. Xiaomi adds support for Google Fit to their popular Mi Band.

The Mi band fitness tracker is a simple and affordable wearable, but rather than trying to be an extension of your phone it offers just the simple job of monitoring your sleep and sports activities. There is no screen only a few LED lights, and while this may not sound like much it means the Mi Band has a 30 battery life and does it’s few simple roles very well.

The Mi Band connects to your phone via the Mi Fit application which has just received an new update. Besides some updates in the UI, Bug Fixes and other general improvements, the new update brings support for Google Fit.

Being Google Fit compatible now means that the Mi Band should work for cycling and other activites not supported before. The new update has just reached Play Store and can be downloaded just now.

    Does anybody else have problems connecting to the band with Lollipop? I’ve had since flashing Cyanide L based on Lollipop 5.1.1, while running Kit Kat everything was fine..

      Works like a charm on all my 5.0 devices, so I guess is more a ROM issue than actually Android 5.1 issue.

    Thanks Xiaomi! I love Mi Band, and it just got more better. Xiaomi promises 1 month of battery life, but I have used this Band 61 days and I still have 27% juice left in battery. Best bang for the buck fitness tracker ever <3

      You need to get the modified APK with app notifications, then you will get the 30 days hehehe.

      My MiBand Band just broke yesterday, I need a new one ;_;

      I’m jealous, after 3 months of usage it’s always been about 45 days. The Mi band app on Google Play has a lot of people complaining about the battery only lasting 1-2 days, safe to assume they have conterfeits.
