If you’ve ever used a fitness tracker on a wristband, you must know that although it gives an indication of your level of activity, it’s usually not really accurate to count steps. Xiaomi’s “90 Minutes ultra smart running shoes” fixes the issue as the fitness tracker powered by Intel Curie module is placed right inside the shoes.
Most of the information is in Chinese, and I could only find limited specifications for the shoes:
- Size – 39 to 45
- Intel Curie Module based on Quark SE SoC with 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope, Bluetooth 4.0 LE connectivity
- Battery – Good for 60 days on a charge
- Shoe sole – Rubber
- Shoe vamp – Fabric + Synthetic leather
- Shoe insole – Antibacterial removable air cushions
You’ll allegedly get all that fitness data using Mihome app by connecting over Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and the app will be able to differentiate between walking, running, and riding a bicycle.

I like the phone in the picture. Anyone know which mode it is ?
As for the shoes I have a GPS watch which is more accurate than any step counter.
Upcoming Xiaomi Mi6 maybe? http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_609494.html
