On Wednesday morning, Beijing-based tech firm Xiaomi announced it will rename its sports app to “Zepp Life.” In addition, as a brand offering wearable devices with a significant amount of users worldwide, Xiaomi will also launch a new app, Mi Sports Health, as the official app for its wearable products, enabling better integration with the wearable products of Xiaomi.
The new application will gradually support the migration of users’ original data, and users can log in to the Xiaomi or Apple app stores to download new applications. In the future, Xiaomi will continue to optimize the application of “Xiaomi Sports Health.”
To encourage eco-chain companies to develop their own brands, Xiaomi agreed to rename the existing “Xiaomi Sports” to Zepp Life, a sports and health application owned and operated independently by Zepp Health.
The Zepp Life app supports connections to Xiaomi Mi Band 1-6, Weight Scale and Body Fat Scale, and all course data and sports data collected during use is stored on Zepp Health’s servers on condition that users’ privacy and security are guaranteed.
Xiaomi will join hands with Zepp Health to deepen cooperation in terms of product development, self-developed chips and algorithms in the field of wearable products, and will provide wearable hardware and software services for users.
Founded in 2013, Zepp Health is an innovative smart hardware company supplying products to Xiaomi. In 2018, Zepp Health was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in the U.S. It produces and sells smart hardware such as Amazfit smartwatches, and derives a large part of its business from OEM and distribution of Xiaomi Mi bands.
