What Xiaomi/Zepp App should I use?

What Xiaomi/Zepp App should I use?

There are 4-5 variants of the app to sync devices like your Mi Band 7 or GTR 3/GTS 3 smartwatch, and they all look very similar and have very similar sounding names. What are their differences and which one is best?

Zepp (formerly Amazfit)

Zepp (formerly Amazfit) is the original App developed for Huami devices, and our favourite because it has features that the others don't.

Zepp Life (Mi Fit)

Zeep Life is the official App for Mi Fit devices.

Mi Fitness (Xiaomi Wear)

Mi Fitness is similar to Google Fit, but lets you manage your Xiaomi devices directly.

So the Apps are almost identical, which one should you choose? We recommend to install the one listed in the setup instructions for your device, or if you have one of them already installed try adding your new device since it will probably work (we still haven't found any devices that don't work in any of them). However, there are some minor differences which might be relevant for you, and its worth noting the Zepp (formerly Amazfit) App is the most complete so you might want to try it out first.
