Xiaomi has finally announced the release of a new Xiaomi Wear 2.0 update for its wearable companion application. The new update brings a new avatar that shows your status in realtime. Moreover, the update now allows users to independently initiate sports in the app anytime and anywhere. Moreover, the application now comes with professional data management. It shows immediate fitness data viewing on the starting screen. For now, the update is reaching only Android users. However, the company will also roll out the update for iOS in the coming weeks.
An interesting addition is that now users can directly start an exercise using the app. You no longer will need to bind your device to it. This particular feature supports the following exercises; outdoor running, indoor running, outdoor walking, and outdoor cycling. Worth noting that the new 2.0 update introduces a new home page that doubles as the status page. Important information like Steps, Calories, Exercise records and sleep can all be viewed immediately on the home page. Moreover, new data source features have been added. As a result, users will be able to quickly switch and view data from multiple devices.

Xiaomi also introduced a new health page with one-click check-in for small habits, health plans, and courses to help your health and monitor your transformation. The app also brings more health information to further improve and expand your exercising experience. Moreover, the Wear 2.0 app can automatically read the exercise heart rate of the Mi Band and Band 5 NFC when they are paired. Of course, this feature will reach other devices, but for now, it’s in development.
The new Independent management feature will also help in scenarios when there are multiple users using the same device. You are able to quickly switch between profiles to check each person’s data. Moreover, the app brings a personal information manager and it is always being updated.
The new update surely introduces a new set of features that will ease the life of Xiaomi’s wearable device users. Hopefully, the company will keep this wave of improvements and will expand the availability of this application to more users and devices. We hope to see support for more devices out of the Mi Band and Mi Watch spectrum. For instance, we have the Haylou set of wearables that also is under Xiaomi’s wings.
