    Hello, I would like to know if the heart rate is compatible not the Runtastic application
    Thank you very much

      Hello Miguel. I think not. All the functions of the Xiaomi Mi Band are compatible with the Mi Fit app itself (of course) and with the Health app of the iPhone, being able to see all the parameters measured with the bracelet there. But I think it is not compatible with another app like Runtastic.

      Hello, I have entered by chance and I have seen your comment. Tell you that if possible, you have to download an application called my HR from the AppStore. With it installed you follow the following steps:
      1.- you run my Fit for the bracelet to be synchronized with the mobile
      2.- in miHR you activate the heart rate
      3.- In runtastic you have to search for a heart rate device and it should appear.

      It is explained a bit roughly, but if you search in Google or YouTube you will surely find how it is done

    Hi there!! Maricuchy to your comment I will tell you that if you can put it in Spanish you just have to choose Mexican Spanish in the iPhone language. As for notifications, I have an iPhone6 ​​and none of them are working for me. Just the calls. and nobody gives me a solution
