Bracelet connectivity

This device can only be used when paired by bluetooth with a mobile phone that has the app Huawei Health. The health app of Huawei is available on all platforms (Android, ios Y Huawei, of course), and it will be necessary to register in it before using it, if we do not have a user account. To recognize the Honor Band 6 in a Smartphone from Huawei we have had no problem, it has been a process of a few seconds. However, we have to indicate that in a Mi A3 terminal, with Android system, we have not been able to link the bracelet. This model did not even appear among the options to register it in the app. Presumably it will appear in an upcoming update.
