A short time ago we brought word of a third-party companion app to Xiaomi's MiBand fitness tracker being developed. Today, we've had word from the developer of a couple of important updates. Namely it's now in English and open to anyone to sign up and try out.
Hit the WPBetaMe link at the bottom of this post if you're interested. Thanks to the interest received from the community, the developer decided to open it up this way and to translate it into English, which is also now the default language. With the Xiaomi MiBand being pretty cheap to buy, and officially coming to Europe and North America this year, it's fantastic news for us that we'll be able to join in. I reviewed the MiBand for Android Central last year and really liked it. It's much less involved than something like the Microsoft Band, but it's a great, basic fitness and sleep tracker.
We'll be trying this out ourselves in the near future, but if you want to have a look yourselves, click the link below and get to it!
