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. Please note that we DO support Mi Band on inKin directly. This is only an example.

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 is on top of your sources list: 

Open Health app -> Health Data tab -> Activity-> Steps -> Data sources & access

Tap the edit button at the TOP right. Then sort the data sources so that MI FIT is at the top of the list above everything else. Make sure Mi Fit also has the red check mark next to it."

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