Xiaomi pushed out an update to the Mi Fit companion app for the Mi Band fitness tracker that allows the sharing of data to Google Fit.
The compatibility with Google Fit makes the Mi Band — which went on sale in India earlier this year for just $15 — a much more attractive proposition for customers looking to track their daily activity. The Mi Band offers call and text notification alerts delivered through the trio of LED lights on its surface, and is IP67 certified. The 41mAh battery on offer may not seem like a lot, but Xiaomi touts a battery life of up to 30 days on a full charge.
To share data with Google Fit, all you need to do is connect the Mi Fit app with your Google account. The fitness tracker is sold through the flash sale model in India, but for those of you looking to get one without the hassle of registering beforehand, Xiaomi has announced that it will be available on general sale on June 2. The Mi Band is also available in the U.K. U.S., France and Germany from the Mi.com store, albeit in limited quantities.
