Xiaomi’s budget fitness wearable now supports Google Fit

Xiaomi Mi Band

The Xiaomi Mi Band wearable costs a measly $15 and tracks all your fitness metrics and even sleep patterns. However, the smart wearable lacked support for Google Fit syncing, which was a bit of a problem for users on Android 5.0 Lollipop as Fit does all the data tracking by default.

However, Xiaomi and Google have worked things out now and the Mi Band is fully supported by Google Fit as well, meaning you can keep an eye on the data gathered by the Mi Band using Google Fit as well. This is in addition to the company’s proprietary Mi Fit application as well.

Interestingly, the support for Google Fit is enabled with an update to Mi Fit, so make sure you’re on the lookout for an update if you have the wearable. Xiaomi recently launched its accessory shop in the U.S., but unfortunately the Mi Band is currently out of stock. But if you’re keen on getting the wearable and don’t mind shelling out a couple of bucks more, you can find plenty of units over at Amazon.

Are you already using the Mi Band? What do you make of this news?
