Companion application for the Huami Amazfit Bip and Cor

***PLEASE READ BEFORE UPDATING TO 0.9.0***

Version 0.9.0 requires sailfish version 3.0.3.8 or above due to changes in the base sailfish image

Powered by KEXI

As of version 0.5.1, actiivity data is retrieved into an sqlite database.  Becuase I think it is important to allow individuals to be in control of their own data, and that they should have the ability to analyse it themsleves, I have chosen to store data in a KEXI compatible database.  This will allow you to copy the database from the phone, and open it up inside KEXI on Linux/Windows/Mac and perform queries and reports on it.  This added ability means i link to a couple of KDE libraries, which should be installed automatically.

Firmware Download - READ FIRST - I am not liable if you brick your watch ;)

Read this for info about which files to flash https://github.com/Freeyourgadget/Gadgetbridge/wiki/Amazfit-Bip-Firmware...

App has been tested using an amazfit bip, downloading the latest (0.1.1.45) official firmware.

The firmware is split into multiple files on these devices.  With the official MiFit app, all are downloaded at once, and everything works fine.  With this app, you have to send each file individually.  The firmwares are available by extracting the MiFit apk, and looking in the assets/ folder for files named Mili_chaohu.*.  When you select a file, its type and version will be determined, and you will be prevented from sending invalid files.

The firmware (.fw) requires a matching resource (.res).  Send the firmware first, the app will send a reboot command at the end of the transfer, and the watch will boot up into a mode where it needs the matching resource sent.  Just wait for the app to connect again, then send the resource. 

The following types of file exist:

firmware, resource, a-gps data, fonts

Pairing Issues

Pairing works for myself, sometimes I have to try twice.  If pairing doesnt work at all, then try:

  • keep the app open, and pair again in the BT settings page of sailfish
  • in the sailfish BT settings page, delete all entries and try again
  • turn off/on BT on the phone
  • factory reset the watch

Check if after all this, pairing works from the sailfish BT settings page.  It should pair and connect just fine from there.  f that doesnt work, my app wont either.

Not all features currently implemented

***May not work on all devices***

Uses Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate with the watch, this is known to be problematic on some devices.  it is known to work on the Xiaomi Mido.  Probably also works on the FP2.  Official devices unknown.

Implemented

  • Pairingfrom
  • Notifications
  • Calls
  • Some settings
  • Retrieving activities
  • Heartrate Chart
  • Alarms
  • Watchface download
  • Firmware upload
  • Activity Sync

Todo

  • More Settings
  • Support other devices (maybe eg MiBand2, as it is similar)

The Cor is also claimed to be working, but as i dont have that device, i cant test it.

Tip:
On your device, create a symlink in /home/nemo to /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-amazfish
This way, you can easilty copy the database off the phone using MTP.

Credits to:

  • The rockpool devs, as i borrowed the call handling code handling code from them
  • The gadgetbridge devs, which gave me a lot of hints and inspiration from theire device code.

Hello, I have a strange issue where I factory reset the watch, then update with mii (latest version), then amazfish seems not to connect... So I removed the pairing and tried again.
But then, the phone is in a loop (seems infinite) when I try to pair with bluetooth settings... And in amazfish, even if I unpaired it tries to connect to the watch, not seeing there is nothing paired.

Is there a way to force remove the watch in amazfish ? Or is it linked to paired devices and I have a bug with sailfish last version (I'm on 3.1 on xperia X)

Thanks...

Fatal error: nothing provides libKDb3.so.4 needed by harbour-amazfish-0.9.2-1.armv7hl
slava's picture

I mean, if I spent a bit more time on it, I would probably find rpm providing libKDb3.so.4 or even built one myself but it would be so much friendlier if everything (which is not part of the platform) necessary to build and install the app would be in one package and one git repo... And if I could build and debug this thing myself, it would be so much more likely that I would contribute something. When I tried to build this thing in OBS it gave me nothing provides kdb-devel >= 3.1.0, nothing provides kcoreaddons-devel >= 5.31.0". Bummer!

For those strugling to connect to the watch after a reboot what seems to work for me is:

  1. Connect via system bluebooth setting to the watch
  2. Open the Amazfish app and select Connect to watch
  3. Select Pair with watch and wait the app to find the watch and start pairing
  4. Open system bluetooth settings again and disconnect from the watch and reconnect
  5. Open amazfish app again and go back to home page and it should finish the pairing process and connect to the watch properly
nobodyinperson's picture

Yes, that seems to be the case:

https://together.jolla.com/question/8589/proper-bluetooth-le-support/?an...

Maybe you could put a little warning in the Amazfish description that it doesn't work for the Jolla 1 for now. With Mi Fit being uninstallable, the Bip rather degrades to a „dumbwatch” with a Jolla 1. Well, at least battery life will be at max :-)

nobodyinperson's picture

Is this supposed to work with a Jolla 1? No matter what I do, my freshly bought and via Mi Fit updated Amazfit Bip (FW 1.1.5.56) just won't show up even in Jolla Bluetooth settings... :-(

piggz's picture

i would giess the J1 doesnt support BLE if it doesnt even show in the BT settings .

timeral's picture

Great work.
Any plan for amazfit verge lite?

aerique's picture

First of all: thanks for your great work!

Pairing is a pain in the ass, but once it works it's awesome.

Secondly, for me "Sync activity data every hour" does not seem to work. (This is on an XA2 device.)

Hello,

Been having real issues connecting back the watch after a phone reboot, my procedure after reboot:

- Using phone settings connect to the amazfit bip via bluetooth

- Phone says connected and watch says connected

- Open the app and pull to option "Connect to watch", the "Start service" button apears for 5 seconds and then dissapears

- This is the output from journalctl:

What am I doing wrong?

fravaccaro's picture

Is support for Mi Band 4 planned?

piggz's picture

I have designed the app to allow more devices to be supported, but without a dev with such device, or a sponsor device then I cant really add support for it 'blind'.  If you have any coding skills, feel free to dig around and ask questions though

Mariusmssj's picture

Hello, every 30 minutes or so I am getting a notification from the app saying "Phone and watch are connected". Is this normal? I never used to get it before

[EDIT:] I realised this only happens when I get far away from the phone and come back close to it, so this means that when it loses and gains back the connection to the watch it provides a notification.

piggz's picture

Yes, thats as per design. you can turn off the notification in app settings if you wish

Mariusmssj's picture

Ahhh thank you, I didn't even see that :)

Mariusmssj's picture

Is anyone else having a bug where when you asnwer thew phone call on the phone but the watch is still vibrating with call notifiation as if you haven't picked up the phone?

zepher's picture

Yep, that happens for me too. i have to press 'ignore' after answering call to stop my wrist buzzing!

Mariusmssj's picture

It's rather annoying to be honest

piggz's picture

yes yes, ive not implemented the auto-muting of the call notification, it will come.

Mariusmssj's picture

Thank's for the support and working on such a great app :)

D_R's picture

I forgot to tell: I'm using a XA2 too with last Hossa 3.9.3.10

MartiMasa's picture

I have/had exactly the same problem so I decided to completely remove Amazfish from my XA2 and then reinstall it. Reinstalling fails now due to missing ”alienaudioservice-0.3-1.2.60.jolla.armv7hl.rpm” in SFOS 3.0.3.10. So please do not remove Amazfish before this is fixed! UPDATE: I was now able to reinstall the app on XA2 after refreshing cache & restarting phone. However, the „No data to transfer” error persists but notifications, HRM and step-counts work just fine.

Mariusmssj's picture

Is anyone else having issues with getting the weather working? I tried setting the location multiple time but it doesn't seem to work.

seiichiro0185's picture

I seem to have the same Problem. Just got an Amazfit Bip, and Setting the Weather Location just resets as soon as I leave the Settings page. Also no Weather is send to the watch.

Everything else works nicely so far (after the first day of use), so thanks a lot for this great App @piggz !

Mariusmssj's picture

It is odd as it does find the city and you can select it, but once you leave the menu it just gets cleared

seiichiro0185's picture

Interesting discovery I made today: Restarting the daemon does lead to weather being send to the watch. Also the city seems to be saved in ~/.config/harbour-amazfish/harbour-amazfish/config.json The settings page is still empty though.

Mariusmssj's picture

Ahh I see, by restarting the daemon you mean just stop the service and start it again from the app?
