Xiaomi has a new health app, but you can't use it yet
According to XDA-Developers today, Xiaomi has a second health and fitness app to call its own. Called Mi Health, the app is available in the latest MIUI China Developer 9.7.23 build.
As with other fitness-focused apps, Mi Health tracks your number of steps, sleep schedule, and menstruation cycles. You can set exercise goals, with Mi Health giving you Health Scores based on your sleep, number of steps taken, and body mass index (BMI). There’s no need to have the app active for sleep tracking — it can track your sleep while also in the background.
Mi Health also gives you visual indicators of your daily, weekly, and monthly activity. Finally, it tracks the total amount of time for your activity, distance covered, and estimated number of burned calories.
We assume Mi Health uses the device’s sensors or gets data from a fitness tracker to track data, but that’s not yet confirmed at the time of this writing.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to try out Mi Health if you don’t have a Xiaomi device. Even if you do, you must be on the latest China beta build. Xiaomi will likely publish the app on the Google Play Store, so here’s hoping we won’t wait long. Until then, feel free to try out Mi Fit, Xiaomi’s existing health app.
