We use an example of Xiaomi Mi Band to show you how to connect a certain device that is not yet directly supported on the platform via either Apple HealthKit or Google Fit apps. 

I. Connecting via Apple HealthKit

Step 1: Open the Mi Fit app on your iPhone(download it from the store if needed) and create or log into your existing account.

Step 2: Connect your Xiaomi device to the Mi Fit app.


Step 3: Go to the Sources tab on your Apple HealthKit app and make sure you've given all the permissions to Mi Fit app.

Make sure Mi Fit has access to your data and is on top of your sources list:

Open Health app -> Browse -> Activity-> Steps -> Data Sources & Access

For each of the metrics that you are tracking, make sure to go to the metric, for example, steps, scroll all the way down to Data Sources & Access, scroll all the way down to Data Sources and make sure MiFit is on top.

Follow these instructions to connect your Apple HealthKit app to inKin.
