Earlier this month, Xiaomi launched accessory stores in Germany, France, the US, and the UK. Among the devices sold was the Mi Band, a $15 fitness tracking band that is IP67 certified, has a battery life of 30 days, tracks sleep and steps, and can even notify users of calls and texts through the band’s LED lights. Now the Mi Band is getting even better with the addition of Google Fit support.

Thanks to a new update to the Mi Fit app, the Mi Band can share data with Google Fit as soon as you connect the Mi Fit app with your Google Account. Adding Google Fit support certainly helps further legitimize the highly affordable fitness band as a worthwhile option for those looking for something a bit simpler and cheaper than popular options like the FitBit. While Google Fit support is the biggest news, the Mi Fit app update also brings with it some UI tweaks, bug fixes, and other general improvements.

You can grab the latest update now right from Google Play.
