Synchronize Amazfit with Strava with ZEPP

It should be remembered that Apple Health or Google Fit is a general platform for daily activity (although of course they also count the workouts).

In the case of Strava, the steps or sleep data, for example, will not be uploaded because they are not supported. Only strength training, running, cycling and other sports profiles that are compatible will be passed there.

About syncing Amazfit with Apple Health

If we follow the previous steps but choose to link with the Health application, exclusive to Apple iPhone, we will have to do the same.

In this case, every time Amazfit updates the data of our device, it will also send it to the Health application and we will have it in the histories and records. The information that will be sent there will be the steps of the day-to-day, sleep and weight in case we have measured it with a Mi Escale or Mi Body Composition Scale and we also have it connected.

How to sync Xiaomi Mi Band with Strava

If you have one of the famous Xiaomi Mi Band bracelets, or as they are called now: Xiaomi Mi Smart Band (here you can see the analysis of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 ), you can also connect it and synchronize it with Strava.

In this case, the common thing is to use the Mi Fit application to synchronize the Mi Band. We must go to the ZEPP (Amazfit) app. Log in with the same MiFit account in the Amazfit app, connect the bracelet, and follow the steps above to add your Strava account. In this way, you can synchronize Xiaomi Mi Band with Strava.

Does it give you an error? Some users experience a failure to connect and sync the Mi Band. Try to restart the mobile-first, then also the bracelet (do a factory reset from its settings).

It is always a good sign that manufacturers integrate other services so that we can interconnect our data, and be able to use more open platforms and with a large community of users (among which our friends will surely be) such as Strava, whatever device we use.
