Thanks for choosing Mira!

Using Mira is pretty easy, and this guide will help you get the most out of your experience!
Here’s everything you need to get going—and keep going.





Your Tracker

Setting Up Your Mira Tracker

Here’s what you need to get started: Your Mira tracking device, your charger and your iPhone® or compatible Apple® device. Your Mira tracker will be clipped into the bracelet when you receive it. You can either pop it out or leave it in the bracelet for setup. See instructions for clipping the tracker in and out of the bracelet.

Mira Compatibility:

  • Mira is compatible with and optimized for iPhone 4S and above
  • Mira is compatible with, but not optimized for iPad miniTM, iPad® (3rd Generation and above) and iPod Touch® (5th Generation and above)
  • Mira is compatible with iOS 7 and above

Charging Your Tracker

  • Plug the charger into a USB port. You can use the USB port in your computer or you can use a standard USB wall adapter (like the one that came with your iPhone).
  • When the tracker says "Mira," you know it's awake, but leave it on the charger for now.
  • On the tracker screen, you will see an animated battery icon letting you know that your tracker is charging. Once your tracker is fully charged, you will see a full battery icon on the tracker screen. That icon will remain on the screen until you remove the tracker from the charger.

Setting Up Your Mira App

  • From your iPhone, download the free Mira app from the Apple App StoreSM.
  • Open up the app and follow the onscreen guide to set up your profile. Once you’ve completed this step, you’re ready to go inside the app.

Pairing Your Tracker
and Your App

  • Make sure your phone’s Bluetooth is turned on.
  • After downloading the Mira app, open it on your phone.
  • Using your phone, complete the onboarding questions to set up your Mira profile. This step is important because it helps Mira get to know you better.
  • It is now time to pair your device. Here’s how:

Step 1:

The app will prompt you to place the tracker on the charger (if it’s already on it, skip this step).

Step 2:

The Mira app will search for nearby Mira trackers. When the app finds the tracker, they will both display the same word.

Step 3:

The app will ask you if your tracker is displaying that same word that you see on your screen. If both words match, tap: Yes, it does. If they do not match or the tracker is not showing a word, tap: No, let’s try this again.

Step 4:

You are now paired!

Step 3

Step 4

After pairing, a quick tutorial on the Mira app pops up. If you skip it or need to go back to it at any time, you can find it by tapping the menu icon in the upper left corner of the app and choosing: Tutorial.

Once paired, the app displays your Day view (or Home screen) and you’ll know that you’re ready to go.

Making the Most of Mira

This is where the fun starts! Mira is a champ when it comes to counting steps, but there’s so much more you can do. Keep reading to get an in-depth look inside the Mira app, or skip ahead and learn more about the Mira tracker.

Inside the App

Main Menu

From the Main Menu you can:

  • See how long you have been using Mira.
  • Check out how many steps you’ve taken this year.
  • Access your Home screen.
  • View your favorite Boosts.
  • Access your Profile.
  • Update your Settings.
  • Revisit the Mira Tutorial.

Viewing Your Progress

Seeing how far you have come will keep you inspired, so check in often!

There are three different ways you can view your progress. At the top of your Day view screen, tap: Hour, Day or Week.

  • Hour: For a detailed look at your day, check the Hour view. You’ll find an in-depth summary of any activities Mira detected (Activity Cards, Boosts, Journal Entries, Milestones and more).
  • Day: The Day view is Mira’s Home screen. It features a graph that represents your activity for the day. The graph in the center of the screen displays your preferred metric. (You chose one of the metrics below when setting up your profile and it can be changed by going to the Main Menu and selecting: Profile.)

The concentric circles pulsate when your app is syncing with your tracker; you'll see the word: Syncing on the screen. You can keep using Mira while the tracker and app are syncing.

  • Week: Tap: Week to see your metrics for your whole week. The graph at the bottom of the screen shows your info at-a-glance.

Tip: From the Day or Hour screen, you can swipe to go back and see how you did on a previous day. Swiping on the Week screen displays data for the previous week.

Tip: Your Day view also includes inspiring messages at the bottom of your screen–don’t miss them!


Mira is always tracking your steps, walks and runs. Once you’ve been walking for a minimum of six minutes or running for three minutes, Mira generates an Activity Card. Activity Cards provide great information! On every card, you’ll see:

  • The number of steps you took.
  • How many calories you burned.
  • The distance you traveled.
  • The elevation you reached.
  • Your step pace for the completed activity.


In addition to metrics, you’ll find an Insight on every Activity Card. Mira’s Insights provide helpful and encouraging feedback on your activities. Insights are indicated by a quote icon and located directly under your activity metrics.

Tip: Did you know you’re always burning calories? That's why Activity Cards display active calories (the calories you burned from walking, running, etc.) and total calories (your baseline burn plus active calories).

Manual Activity Cards

You can manually add an Activity Card when you complete non-step activities like yoga, cycling or weightlifting:

Step 1:

Tap on the + in the upper right corner of your app.

Step 2:

Select: Activity.

Step 3:

Enter Activity Type, Start Time and Duration. Tap the photo at the top of the activity page to add your own photo and personalize your experience. Tap: Add Activity.

Step 4:

You’re all set!

The last section of your Activity Card contains a Boost. Boosts provide motivating tips to help you make the most of your future fit moments. Boosts are selected based on the activities Mira detects that you enjoy doing, so if you see a Boost you like, be sure to tap the star icon to favorite it. See the Using Boosts section for more details.

Other Cards in the Hour View

Using Boosts

In addition to Boosts on Activity Cards, Mira has Inspiration Boosts, healthy activities you can do right now to get your step count up, burn extra calories and keep moving. Here’s how to use Inspiration Boosts:

  • From the Hour and the Day view in your app, tap the magenta: Need Inspiration? button at the bottom of your screen.

  • If you do the suggested activity, tap: I did this! The Boost will be added to your day at the time you take action. In your Day view, you will see a magenta line at the time of day you completed the Boost. In the Hour view, you will see the word: Boost. Tap it to review the Boost you completed.
  • If you don’t love the Boost suggestion, use the arrow at the bottom of the screen to get another idea–don’t worry, there are tons of them!

Love a Boost? To make sure you can easily repeat a Boost, when you see one you like, tap the star icon in the upper right corner of the screen to save it as a favorite.

To access your favorite Boosts anytime:

  • Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner of the app.
  • Tap: My Boosts.
  • Tap the one you want to complete and then tap: I did this! The Boost will be added to your day.

Celebrating Milestones

Mira is with you every step of the way, and rewards your achievements with Milestone trophy cards. Be sure to open these cards. We don’t want to ruin the surprise, but there may be fireworks involved.

Reflective Insights

Even when you’re not in motion long enough for Mira to create an Activity Card, Mira still knows you’re moving! Reflective Insights give an overall summary of your progress for the day, week or month.

Journal Entries

The Mira journal allows you to track even more. You can use the space to write about how you felt while doing an activity, journal your food choices, upload inspiring photos or capture anything else. The space is yours!

  • Tap: My Profile.

From time to time you might want to access your Settings. Here’s how:

  • Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner of the app.
  • Tap: Settings.
  • From Settings you can: Change from miles and pounds to kilometers and kilograms, check your tracker’s battery level, see what version of the app you have, unpair your tracker from the app and access information like FAQs and the Privacy Policy.

Your Tracker

After charging your tracker and pairing with the app, you’re ready to use your Mira.

Mira will automatically detect step activities like walks, jogs, runs, hikes and trips up the stairs.

Wearing Mira

To wear the tracker in the bracelet:

  • It’s very important that you place the tracker in the bracelet the right way to prevent it from getting stuck or falling out. Identify the clip on the bottom of the tracker and follow the instructions below:

Step 1:

Tilt the open end of the clip (the end without the metal button) into the bracelet, fitting it over the ridge in the bracelet.

Step 2:

Press the other end of the clip into the bracelet. You should feel a light snap and hear a click when Mira is in place.

Step 3:

To remove the tracker from the bracelet, turn the bracelet over and pull the small tab towards the tracker.

You can wear Mira clipped to your shirt, bra, tank top or waistband when you want to be more discreet. To secure tracker to clothing, simply line up the edge of the clip with the fabric and slide on. Do NOT pull or rotate clip. The clip will adjust to fit.

Tip: The Mira bracelet is pliable, so you can adjust it to your wrist for the perfect fit. It will hold up to standard wear and tear. For best results, treat it like your other favorite everyday jewelry.

Tracking Activities

Viewing Progress on Your Tracker

Because Mira is so awesome at tracking your activity, you can view lots of data without even opening up the app–this makes it easy to check in while you’re on the go.

When you set up your app, you picked a preferred metric–steps, calories, distance or elevation–you can always change this by opening up the app and going into your profile.

Use your tracker to view your progress of your preferred metric. Here's how:

  • Lightly pinch the sides of the tracker for up to three seconds–you can do this while it is in the bracelet.
  • Your primary metric will display.
  • When you release your pinch, the time will display for five seconds.

You can also view your secondary metrics on your tracker. Here’s how:

  • Lightly pinch the sides of the tracker for up to three seconds–you can do this while it is in the bracelet.
  • Your primary metric will display.
  • The time will display for five seconds.
  • Keep pinching and the tracker will cycle through all of the metrics, showing each one for one second, for as long as you continue pinching.
  • When you release your pinch, the last metric displayed will continue to display for three seconds and then turn off.

Tip: To change the orientation of your tracker’s display, go to the Main Menu in your app and tap: Settings. Look for "Display Orientation" under the Device section and tap: Normal.

Your Battery

To count your steps and keep on tracking, your Mira’s battery needs to be charged. Your tracker will keep its charge for up to five days depending on usage. It’s best to charge your Mira device when the battery gets lower than 20%. To make sure your Mira is ready when you are, charge it every night when you go to bed. To check the battery level on your tracker:

  • Select: Settings from the Main Menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
  • Go to Battery Level to see the percentage of power remaining. Please note that if your tracker is not within a reasonable distance of your phone, or if the tracker battery is dead, the value will show n/a.

Memory and Storage

If your tracker and your phone get separated for a few days, don’t worry! Your data is safe. Depending on your activity level, your tracker will store all of the data it collects–steps, calories, distance ran, elevation and Activity Cards–for up to 30 days.

Resetting Your Tracker

It will not be necessary to reset your tracker often. Resetting your Mira will delete any data that has not been synced, so you may lose some data.

Here’s how to reset your tracker:

  • Place the tracker on the charging station.
  • Pinch the tracker.
  • After five seconds, the tracker will show a message that says: Reset in: 5...4...3...2...1.
  • After the countdown the device will display: Mira. That’s how you know it’s been reset.
  • To cancel reset, release the pinch during the countdown.
