Xiaomi’s Mi Fit app for Mi Band now supports Google Fit for data sync

Xiaomi released the Mi Band activity tracker in India earlier this month, along with a dedicated app that shows a user’s activity.  It’s a great activity tracker for the price, and even has a great battery life, but the only problem was that it didn’t sync with Google Fit. Now, Xiaomi has released an updated version of the app that supports Google Fit.

Google Fit app for Android was released last year along with an API so that it can gather data from all the activity and fitness trackers and show it in one place, just like Apple HealthKit. Google recently released an updated version of Google Fit, allowing it to show distance tracking, calories burnt, and more. Support for Google Fit means that you will not lose your activity and fitness related data even if you decide to replace your Mi Band with YuFit, or any other Android Wear smartwatch, or even an Android smartphone.

The Mi Band device is priced at just Rs. 999, and competes with the YuFit smartband that was launched along with the Yu Yuphoria. The YuFit smartband is priced at Rs. 999, but comes with an OLED display that shows vital fitness statistics and notifications from a paired Android device.
