Companion application for Huami Devices (such as Amazfit Bip, Cor, MiBand2/3 and GTS and GTS), Pinetime Infinitime and Bangle.js.

Supported Devices

There are 3 tiers of supported devices:

Gold

These are devices I have, have tested and will try not to break any functioanlity for an include:
* Amazfit Bip
* Amazfit GTS
* Pinetime Infinitme
* Bangle.js

Silver

These are devices which are properly implemented in the application, but I do not have and are tested by the commuity, and include:
* Amazfit BipS
* Amazfit Bip Lite
I do not promise not to break funcaionality in these, but will fix where I can

Bronze

These are devices which use a protocol that is close to another suppored device, and so is treated like that device.  Your mileage may vary with these devices.
* MiBand 2/3/4
* AMzfit Cor
* Amazfit GTR

***BUILT FOR 3.4 PLEASE READ OLDER 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.

For releases of the current version built against other Sailfish releases, use the repositories at :

https://build.merproject.org/project/show/home:piggz:harbour-amazfish and
https://build.merproject.org/project/show/home:piggz:kf5

***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

Server Side Pairing Code

The newer devices (GTS, BipS etc) 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.

See https://codeberg.org/Freeyourgadget/Gadgetbridge/wiki/Amazfit-GTS

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.

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)

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.

Button Actions

Bip and GTS notify when the watch button is pressed. This is captured by amazfish which allows running actions on theses presses. An action can be ran on 2,3 or 4 presses. To confiure the actions, goto Settings > Application > Button Actions.

A custom script can be used, the script must be called harbour-amazfish-script.sh and be in the home folder. Example which sends a OTP code to the watch as a message:

#!/bin/sh
if [ "$1" == "4" ]; then
    CODE=`python3 -c 'import pyotp;totp = pyotp.TOTP("XXXX Authenticator code here XXXX");print(totp.now())'`
    dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest=uk.co.piggz.amazfish /application uk.co.piggz.amazfish.sendAlert string:'' string:'Google OTP' string:$CODE boolean:true
fi;

Hello, Amazfish hasn't worked for me for 6 months since around the time 3.4 SailfishOS came out. So today I uninstalled Amazfish and moved /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-amazfish, /home/nemo/.config/harbour-amazfish and /home/nemo/.cache/harbour-amazfish to a backup and reinstalled. But it is still not working.

The app does not display download data, e.g. it says it is downloading sports activities, but does show the data afterwards, the list is empty.

Any ideas how can I get it working again?

Sony X with Bip Watch, software v1.1.6.34. Sailfish Koli 4.0.1.48 with Amazfish 1.9.7-1.18.1.jolla

piggz's picture

Ah, you are talking about flashing, not connecting..... flashing isnt currently implemented for the BipS

robthebold's picture

Amazfish looks cool, and pairs up ok on a pinephone with SFOS just great, but what to do to get the user space firmware on Bip S? All it does right now is let me pick language and show a QR code. I don't have any g* or i* devices to "OTA" the official way, and it doesn't seem to be packaged in the APKs anymore that I've found mirrored on the internets . . . any pointers appreciated -- pm me at TMO (same username) if you've got some advice. Eager to get going with this app and this watch. Thanks!

piggz's picture

If you dont have access to an android device to obtain the authentication key for the watch, you will have to use the following python script https://github.com/argrento/huami-token which can also download the AGPS data

robthebold's picture

I think I've found some proper firmware for the Bip S, but apparently I'm dense as to where to put the files for Amazfish to find them, since when I pull down the menu and select "Download File" in Amazfish the "Choose File: None" label is dimmed. No amount of clicking does anything. Should a get a file-selection dialog at this point? I'm using SFOS 3.4 on a PinePhone, so I guess I could also have a pinephone problem.

Malakay's picture

Okay, where to upload log? Here?

Malakay's picture

So, issue submitted, looking forward for help :) If it helps, donation is sure thing :) 

Malakay's picture

Please Piggz, can you help me??

piggz's picture

You need to send logs from the daemon, and tell me what watch.  For logs, "devel-su, journalctl | grep amaz"

apozaf's picture

Everything perfect here with BIP and GTS. Time for me to donate again. Thx piggz

piggz's picture

Thanyou very much

Malakay's picture

Still no luck with Xperia X, still keeps disconnecting, and often wont reconnect :(

kraemera's picture

The only remaining issue with Amazfish and my BIP light is that I cannot start outdoor activities. The BIP light has no build-in GPS sensor and tries to fetch the GPS coordinates from the phone. On my XPERIA X, it just waits forever to establish the GPS connection to the phone and the activity cannot be started.

kraemera's picture

Just found a small issues on my BIP light: A disconnect notification stops and resets a running countdown timer.Now my tea infused for too long ☺.

piggz's picture

I dont think thats ama amazfish issue....the diconnect notification is a watch feature, if the Bip doesnt handle that its the Bips fault.  If its somethign that gets in the way, you could turn off disconnect notifications in settings.

kraemera's picture

Ok, thanks for the answer. I will do so.

nerd7473's picture

I hope we can get support for AsteroidOS devices... My hope is my Sturgeon watch could be used...

chris_bavaria's picture

The amazfit-GTR show no incomming call from phone. How can I fix this? (V1.8.5)
In Debugging, a Test-call works, but an incomming call on the phone is not shown while ringing.

app-notifications, weather, activity with gpx and music control works very good.

Edit: In V1.8.7 it works !! THX :)

kraemera's picture

This is no answer, but the same happens for me on the BIP light. I get no call notification.

piggz's picture

Youre both right, not working here too....Investigating

piggz's picture

Found the issue, will be fixed in next release

kraemera's picture

Call notification works now on BIP light. Thank you.

elkiaer's picture

I did also do a ”pkcon refresh”

Now I have the issue with swiping between items on the Band again.
I have activated all Display Items and saved settings but can still not swipe between the items on the Band.

elkiaer's picture

Hmm.. After installing version 1.8.5 again there is no issue in swiping through the display items on the Band.
But - When disabling all the display items, save and leave the setting screen and again entering the setting screen there are no display items viewable.
Empty screen except for the save screen button.

piggz's picture

Are you restarting, or atlease stop/starting the service between installs?

 

elkiaer's picture

I will try the following:
Stop service.
Uninstall
Restart phone
Install
And start service

piggz's picture

Its sufficient to install new version, open app, got settings > application, stop, start

elkiaer's picture

I will install 1.8.5 again and test.

elkiaer's picture

Yes, without luck. I uninstalled 1.8.5 and installed 1.8.2 then I got the display items back on the Band.
