The Mi Fit app is … honestly not great. It contains many strange analyzes on how to sleep and follow your steps, and does not show total calories burned in one day / week / month. Instead, it focuses on the miles you've run, run or driven.
So, if you plan to use one of the affordable Mi bands to track and improve your fitness, it may hinder your efforts to prevent the app from displaying data in a useful or actionable way. However, there are some apps that you can use instead of Mi Fit to better show your activity data. I recommend starting with Google Fit, which has one of the more elegant user interfaces and can be easily synced through Mi Fit.
This is how it works:
- To start, open the Mi Fit app and tap the profile button on the bottom right corner. You'll get an overview of your account, the devices you've paired with Mi Fit, and other settings that you can customize.
- Scroll down and touch Add Accounts. In the app, Mi Fit offers automatic pairing with WeChat and Google Fit. So enable the Google Fit option and confirm the sync. You should now be able to see your activity in Google Fit with the words "Mi Fit" next to any data displayed in the app.
- If you do not like and like Google Fit If you use another third-party app, just go back to the "Add Accounts" setting in the Mi Fit app, tap "Google Fit" and click Remove from Google Fit to resolve the link.
There are many more third-party apps that work with Mi Band on Android than on iOS. The Mi Band subreddit community is a great place to start looking for recommendations that best meet your specific needs. You are welcome to chat with us below about your favorite apps for use with the Mi Band.
