Xiaomi's popular Mi Band fitness trackers offer extraordinary bang-for-buck but have been let down by a sub-par app experience that felt rough around the edges. This could change today, as the v4.0 update to Mi Fit brings a brand new UI.

The app now adopts a card-based interface with white backgrounds — there's no dark mode in sight. Text is now better spaced out, with none of the readability issues that plagued previous versions. Overall, the app looks clean and polished, something I wouldn't attribute to Mi Fit before.

The Play Store changelog also mentions an optimized data view and support for more types of workouts — though I could only see walking, running, and cycling.

The upcoming Mi Band 4 is around the corner (the rumor mill thinks it'll have a color display, NFC, and an ECG monitor) so it's fitting that Mi Fit gets a revamp before the new band's release.

You can get the new version of Mi Fit from the Play Store and APKMirror.
