Companion application for the Huami Amazfit Bip and Cor

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).  If you 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.  It may work better to send the resource first, then the firmware.

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
  • Weather
  • 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 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.

Amazfish app looks excellent for a smartwatch support. Could it be possible to adjust it working with Samsung Galaxy watch (Tizen)?  I am very disappointed that Xperia X do not support it due to too low Android support 4.4.4. Also I do not have any high expectations whether Galaxy Wearables app should work with Android support for 5 or 8.1. Thank you for information. Good luck.

Good ,but  I just  have  Ticwatch  S.

if you need help for french or dutch translation  just ask ;-)

Did someone test it with the Stratos 2 or Pace Watch? :)

dalas_revo's picture

In SFOS's BT setting, sorry

dalas_revo's picture

I recovered by deleting the watch in SFOS's, re-pairing it, sending resources, fw and finally the font

marxistavegana's picture

0.8.1 works with COR and does not crash

dalas_revo's picture

No, I think your instruction is clear enough, people just have to follow it ;)
Maybe you could add a hint not to mix Latin and non-latin files, but in general I think it should be clear...

Reflashing did only work after deleting the watch in the BT section of SFOS settings, but finally flashing non-Latin font did the trick! Thank you very much!

dalas_revo's picture

Very nice app! Thank you!
Finally a usable smartwatch on sailfish :) Unfortunately I managed to bring my device into a more or less unusable state ( not bricked). First I flashed latest fw ( doesn't recognize the one with ending "latin" as fw) and res (latin), which worked very well. Afterwards I flashed latin fonts. Now the Bip always displays "Connect APP to update" and I can't get it out of this state. Reflashing firmware and ressources doesn't help.
I's there anything I can do to get it working again?
I am using it on an XA2, amazfish 0.8.1, as 0.8 always crashed at startup

Oh, sorry you got in such a state.  Could you try flashing the 3 non latin files, firmware, Res and font.

 

Failing that, can you use an android device to use mifit to do the flash?  I probably need better instructions on what to flash and which order!

Caluna's picture

Hi piggz,

I am also trapped in the "Connect to update" loop. Tried tore-flash different firmwares (from 0.1 to 1.1.5)  without much success. Additionally, Mi-Fit app on Android does not help as pairing fails. Do you have any other ideas?

Best

C.

piggz's picture

you need to srnd thr matching firmware and res, and.possibly font file. hopefully amazfish can still connect and send the files? all i can suggest is what is in the gadget bridge wiki, good luck

Caluna's picture

Hi Piggz,

I think, the device is bricke and stuck in a state that cannot be recovered: The files are sent in the correct order (as suggested in the wiki), but at the end of the transfer of the respective files I always end up with the message "connect to app to update" and connection to the phone is lost. I have to re-pair using Amazfish and can connect again. The connection request on the device pops up and I can agree and connection can be established. But still: the device does not "boot".  

Mi Fit on Android sends connection request, but when I agree, it says that the connection request cannot be sent.

 

piggz's picture

doesnt sound dire if you can still connect and send files. persist, try older, or try gadgetbridge

Caluna's picture

Tried a lot without any success: Gadgetbridge says, that there is a problem with transfer of metadata. "Google" provides not a real answer to this...

piggz's picture

you are trying all the non latin files,.3 of?

Caluna's picture

Yes: tried just the non-latin files, also in different order (fw first, res first gps first). FW Versions: 1.1.5.02, 1.1.5.04, 1.0.1.00, 0.0.9.40

All ends up with the same result

One thing i just noticed: alarms are not synchronized to the watch. Actually i have one alarm which got pushed (happening on Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri) but whenever i try to add / enable other alarms, the watch shows me the other alarms as '0:00 tomorrow / disabled'
And modifying the alarm which got pushed does not work either

dalas_revo's picture

I cannot push any alarms, too. The output which is relevant here (I guess) is

[W] unknown:112 - file:///usr/share/harbour-amazfish/qml/pages/Settings-alarms.qml:112: TypeError: Property 'applyDeviceSettings' of object DeviceInterface(0xffb392f8) is not a function

piggz's picture

Ah, great, thanks for the console output, a remainder of the major restructure.

cartron's picture

Will you fix it in thr next release? :)

0.8.0 gives segmentation fault on geminipda with 3.0.0.8. Had to go back to 0.7.5-1.

piggz's picture

Are you doing anything specific to cause the crash or does it happen on startup?

marxistavegana's picture

It is giving me a segfault on sfos3.

piggz's picture

Are you doing anything specific to cause the crash or does it happen on startup?

Its working for me, but I didnt do a clean run, ie, with no pairing.  I will check that.  there were a lot of changes in 0.8.0 so i potentially missed something.

 

Can you post logs from running in a console to github?

cartron's picture

Hi, on which device? I upgraded my Xperia X yesterday to 0.8.0-1, and it works perfectly. Haven't tried yet running to see whether GPX files are OK now, but the rest works fine
