In February this year, when the Australian actor launched this app, more than 100,000 users reportedly signed up to Centr. The iOS version of the app “has recorded 1.4 million downloads. With an estimated 2 billion active users on Google Play, Centr is expected to be a massive hit among Android users,” the report stated. Chris Hemsworth created the app in collaboration with trainers, wellness experts, chefs, and meditation coaches. The Hollywood actor calls it a “personalized digital health and fitness program.” His wife Elsa Pataky is also one of many other contributors to the app.
Separately, in July this year, Xiaomi also launched its new health and fitness app, called ‘Mi Health’ in China. Globally, the company already has another similar type of app, the Mi Fit on Google Play. The app is reportedly developed for Xiaomi devices and can’t be installed on any other Android phone.
The app is fitness-focused and hence allows you to set exercise goals etc. It tracks your number of steps, sleep schedule, menstruation cycles, body mass index (BMI) and more in the background. The app also gives you visual indicators of your daily, weekly, and monthly activity.
