Xiaomi Mi Band 4 works with Strava if you use the Amazfit app!

I'm just writing to let everyone know that that the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 works fully with Strava if you use the Amazfit app (current version is 3.4.3 as of writing) instead of the Mi Fit app.  This is in an Android context; YMMV on iOS.

You need to install the Amazfit app from Google Play.  If your Mi Band 4 is already paired using the Mi Fit app, the Amazfit app will automatically import that paring, but then take a little bit of time to update the Mi Band 4 firmware, and then take more time to re-connect.  After all this is done, I found that uninstalling Mi Fit does not affect anything.

In the Amazfit app, add your Strava account under Profile -> Add account.  It will request permissions for several things.  I just "yes'ed" everything (you can experiment with saying no to things, if you like).  It also tells you that you need to go into the Strava app settings if you want to share your heart rate data.  It's under Settings -> Data Permissions -> Health-Related Data.

  • I tried o connect my mi band 4 with amazfit app, out of curiosity, a week ago, but the app just couldn't detect the band. I had a lot of trouble trying to signup with google account to begin with. After i gave up and tried to pair my band back with mi fit app, I had trouble pairing my band to it as well, much to my frustration. I wasted good hour and a half in trying to connect. In the end I had to reboot my band, get a new bluetooth connection serial and to my relief it started working normally again.

    Currently i am using Notify and fitness app and exporting my data to Strava. There's  an issue with that as well because it won't transfer gps map on strava. I have to manually export the gpx file of the activity and then upload it to strava to get the gps data as well.

  • Note that the IOS version of Amazfit does sync with Strava but doesn’t appear to export swimming activities. I think it only works for activities that use GPS.
