Xiaomi - Interrupted Trainings

Modified on Wed, 03 Jan 2024 at 01:10 PM

On some devices, you may need to edit your device settings to prevent trainings from being interrupted. Se below for a guide on how to allow the app to keep running in the background during your whole training

Core Settings

To let your app run successfully in the background, make sure your settings are set as shown below. You can access this option by going to Settings > Equilab (you'll select Equilab from the list of apps).




Power management

Updating your device's battery power management settings can help prevent it from shutting down Equilab in the background, especially when you are using the app to track for more than 20 minutes. To do so, take the following steps
  • Go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Battery manager > Power plan  and set the plan to Performance
  • Go to Device Settings > Advanced Settings > Battery Manager > Protected apps – and ensure you add Equilab to the list of protected apps 
  • Go to Device Settings > Apps > your app > Battery > Power-intensive prompt  and select the option "Keep running after screen off"
  • Go to Settings > Additional Settings > Battery & Performance > Manage apps’ battery usage  and make the following updates:
    1. Switch Power Saving Modes to "Off"
    2. Choose the next options: Saving Power in The Background > Choose apps > select Equilab > Background Settings > No restrictions

Disable App battery saver

Within your device's settings, go to Security > Battery > App Battery Saver -- then select Equilab and set to "No restriction"

App pinning

When you open recent apps tray, drag your app downwards – it will be locked. So even if you clear recent apps it will not clear from the background. Drag downwards again to clear your app from the background.


Enable Autostart

Xiaomi reccommends taking these steps for apps to enable better performance of the app itself: 

  • Go to Security app > Permissions > Auto-start, then Enable Autostart for Equilab.


After selecting "AutoStart", search for Equilab app and tap to enable it.
