Mi Band 3

[Discussion] [Mi Fit 4.0] ONE Run counts TWICE on total calories burned page

Hi all,

I went for a run a few days ago with my brand new Mi Band 3 after installing the Mi Fit App (version 4.0.0) and upgrading the firmware of the band to V. (according to the Mi Fit app). The same problem happened to me on another run today.

I took my phone with me on the first run, but today I left it at home and had the same problem. The screenshots were taken when I went for the first run with my phone and activated GPS, I started the 'Running' activity in the section of the Mi Fit App. Today I left my phone at home and recorded my run using the 'Treadmill' feature directly on my band. The problem however is the same in both cases. I attached 3 screenshots showing the odd behavior of the statistics in the Mi Fit App. Here is what you see on the screenshots:

Screenshot 1:

          My Workouts - Steps today
          1h4min, 9719 steps, 9.4km, 633kcal burned

Screenshot 2:

          My Workouts - Today's Activity
          1h05m57s, 8.09km, 975 burned

Screenshot 3:

          My Workouts - Today's energy 1617kcal
          Running 9.42kkm 01:04:00 633kcal 5:02pm
          Outdoor Running 8.09km 01:05:57 975kcal 5:01pm

Note: I only ran once before I took the screenshots!

My questions: Why were two separate runs recorded at the same time and why is one called 'Running' and the other is called 'Outdoor Running'? And more important: Why do statistics like step count, calories burned and distance differ from one another?

Because they do not test their software before a release: a decent QA would have detected a bug in the MAIN feature of a fitness tracker (that is to track fitness sessions).

after updating to the latest version of both the Mi Fit App (4.0.2) and the Mi Band 3 firmware ( the problem remains exactly the same.

In addition to the mentioned events in the first post, I found out that when I go to
My Workouts - Todays Activity - the time of my run (Treadmill mode started on Mi Band 3) is 00:11:47. However when I click on the activity to see all the stats, it shows that time is 00:12:19.

When I go to
My Workouts - Burned calories - I see Treadmill counting as 00:11:47 (in addition to a Running session that lasts 00:10:00 and calories of both activities are summed up... it is so confusing!)

Where do all the different times come from and which time is true?

Please if anyone from support reads this, forward this message to the developer's team. I am checking this forum frequently so I can be of any assistance to you, just let me know. Please fix those inconsistencies!
