Companion application for the Huami Amazfit Bip, Cor, MiBand2/3 and GTS

***PLEASE READ SAILFISH 3.4 USERS***

Amazfish needs to be built on OBS against a defined set of libraries.  Becuase there is a delay between a Sailfish release and that release being available on OBS, there will be a delay to supporting the latest versions.

Currently, Amazfish is built agaist the libicu library version 63 in Sailfish 3.3, in Sailfish 3.4 this has been replaced with version 66.

As a workaround, it is possible to force install amazfish and its libraries by using "zypper install --nodeps ..." and manuallycreating symlinks for the icu libraries:

/usr/lib/libicu*.so.66 -> /usr/lib/libicu*.so.63

If you dont know the exact command to use, then just wait untila build is available for 3.4.

***PLEASE READ for 1.7.0 Update***

The new sport display feature requires the MapBox component.  The easiest way to get this is by installing PureMaps from rinigus repository.

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 and GTS, 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 fotn (.ft) and 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 font and resource sent.  Just wait for the app to connect again, then send the font and resource. 

The following types of file exist:

firmware, resource, a-gps data, fonts

So, to re-iterate, the firmware flashing order is:

  • .fw
  • .ft
  • .res

Amazfit GTS

Beta support for the Amazfit GTS includes activity data sync and sports sync (GPS). No support for downloading FW or watch face, an no support for sending weather data.  GTS requires a server-side pairing key which requires inital pairing with an android device.  To get the key, follow the instructions here and enter into Amzafish when prompted, WITHOUT 0x at the beginning.

https://github.com/Freeyourgadget/Gadgetbridge/wiki/Huami-Server-Pairing

AGPS Download/Transfer

The official amazfit app can download and transfer the AGPS files to the watch automatically.  The amazfit web site limits download of the files to those with accounts.  A python script has been developped that can download the AGPS files, these can then be transferred to your phone, and downloaded to the watch using the normal "Download File" option.

  • Obtain the script from https://github.com/argrento/huami-token
  • Download the AGPS files using the -g paramter, this will download 2 .zip file.  The only one required is cep_alm_pak.zip
  • Extract the zip and transfer the 2 .bin files to the phone
  • Send the files gps_alm.bin and cep_pak.bin to the watch.

YMMV Devices

  • MiBand 2/3/4
  • Cor
  • GTR
  • Bip-S

These devices are untested and use the existing Bip/GTS backends.  They should be safe but your mileage may vary, and some features may not work.

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

  • Pairing
  • 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.

  • The gadgetbridge devs, which gave me a lot of hints and inspiration from their device code.

Have you all still 3.3 or done the mention procedure. I do not know how to do it so my Excel project is on hold.
www.elkiaer.dk/fish/

apozaf's picture

I just updated to newesr firmware on GTR on an android device with the official Zepp app and switched back to sfos. No problems at all. The watch just needs to be restarted for connecting to a different phone.

fyodorov's picture

Works fine on 3.4 (Gtr & bip) after ln -s libicu... and install via zypper (as written in the app description). Amazfish is greatest sailfish app!!!! Amazfish must be included in the SFOS as a system part)))

Caluna's picture

Hi Fyodorov,

do you get notification with GTR? I am able to sync steps, but notifications are not forwarded.

Best,

C.

elkiaer's picture

:-( Not a 3.4 update.
Mine Xperia X with 3.3 can not connect to the miband so I'm totally lost.

vige's picture

I'm not able to open to new sports page, it says "Sivun lataus epäonnistui" (something like "Loading page failed". And I see these in console:

[W] unknown:1275 - file:///usr/lib/qt5/qml/Sailfish/Silica/PageStack.qml:1275:13: QML AnimatedLoader: (file:///usr/share/harbour-amazfish-ui/qml/pages/SportPage.qml:5:1: module "MapboxMap" is not installed
    import MapboxMap 1.0
    ^)
[W] unknown:133 - file:///usr/share/harbour-amazfish-ui/qml/pages/SportsSummaryPage.qml:133: Error: Cannot assign to non-existent property "title"

 

I guess the bigger problem is MapboxMap missing, should I install something?

 

piggz's picture

Oh, yeah, should have wrote about that!

Probably easiest to install puremaps from rinigus repo to get that dependancy .... im surprised anyone doesnt have puremaps already!

elkiaer's picture

Xperia X
Nothing provides kcoreaddons >=5.31.0 needed by harbour-amazfish-1.68-1.armv7hl

piggz's picture

Fixed, please pkcon refresh etc...

mklick's picture

Tanks again for your great app. Before the last OS updates, it was working fine. But now it is not working at all. The app offer only to disconnect from my GTS (newer firmware) but it is not connected at all. Bluetooth was on. The propsed zypper action was tried, it requires on my Xperia XA with SF 3.4 some dangerous actions but no new KDE libs. pkcon refresh and update does not do anything.

piggz's picture

See updated description

mklick's picture

I tried your recommandations for 3.4 users, created the symlinks, tested them with hexdump, and installed with zypper w/o dependencies. Unfortunately the error is still the same. Coupling the watch stops after selecting the MAC address with an "Unexpected error". Please let me know if I can help.

elkiaer's picture

It is not possible to install the app on a Xperia X, SailfishOS 3.3.0.16 :-(

sashikknox's picture

Segfault when try start harbour-amazfish.service (/usr/bin/harboir-amazfishd) , a was akready try pkcon refresh and update, maybe need reinstall something?

elkiaer's picture

There is some connection to the miband, the "Test Call" under "Debug Info" is working.
Data download is not possible.

elkiaer's picture

I had to do:
Pkcon install zypper
Then the zypper is installed.
Here after I did run the 2 zypper command.
The miband did then connect BUT after the steps have been downloaded and the Bluetooth icon was viewable for about 5 seconds the icon disappeared and it is not possible to download data.
This zypper fix do not solve the issue totally .

elkiaer's picture

First I will mention that I did reset my OS on this 3.4.0.22 update.

Second, I get an error:
bash: zypper: command not found

piggz's picture

You can probably achieve the same using pkcon refresh and pkcon update, or, use pkcon to install zypper.

apozaf's picture

thx a lot, I had not installed zypper before so it had no result. I just donated 20 bucks to your paypal account for your fantastic work.

apozaf's picture

Sorry for being stupid: devel-su zypper ref harbour-amazfish?

piggz's picture

devel-su zypepr ref

devel-su zypper dup

Look at the proposed changes, and make sure they look sane, ie, not going to remove anything unexpected.

piggz's picture

Yes I know its not working in 3.4 ... just needs the updated kdelibs from my repo, will publish soon

elkiaer's picture

Same here

piggz's picture

Try zypper ref and zypper dup, and it _should_ work

apozaf's picture

Can't connect on 3.4

piggz's picture

Try zypper ref and zypper dup, and it _should_ work

Hi, It seems that amasfish don't work with SFOS 3.4.

Service don't start.
