Xiaomi has released an update to its wearable app for the Xiaomi Wear 2.0 version with some new features. For now, the novelty is available for Android, but should also be available for iOS in the coming weeks.
One of the highlights is that the update now includes a new avatar that shows your status in real time, and allows users to independently start exercising in the app anytime, anywhere.
Another addition is the direct start of an exercise by the app. You no longer need to connect your device to it. Compatible activities include outdoor running, indoor running, outdoor walking, and outdoor cycling.
Update 2.0 also introduces a new home page with status and important information such as steps, calories, exercise logs and sleep. Now you can still see the source of the added data, to switch information from different devices.
Extensive support for Mi Band 5
Xiaomi Wear 2.0 has introduced a new health page where you can view small habits, health plans and courses to help and track your progress. In addition, the app now automatically reads the Mi Band 5 NFC’s training heart rate when paired.
The trend is for the feature to reach more devices. To date, however, support for other portable models is still under development.
