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

This release is for SFOS 4.1 only.  For older SFOS versions see OBS.

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;

explit's picture

It brings cyrillic (RU) support. (For me very important)

piggz's picture

in that case id better add support for setting that lang in the app!

explit's picture

Thanks piggz! Cool App. Working with the new FW 1.0.1.00 too

piggz's picture

cool, im not on that yet ... does it bring anything noticable?  theyre terrible for changelogs!

TybaldRabe's picture

Hi, maybe developer "mat90c@gmail.com" can help with code for MiBands. He build app for android. I can help with Czech language.

Caluna's picture

How to upload a watchface file? At least bin files from amazfitwatchfaces do not work. When I choose a downloaded bin file at "Download File" it says: "No file selected". 

piggz's picture

works here, but maybe i have a newer dev build . apologies, ill re-upload later, i remember fixing that as one of the last problems, and could have got the release wrong.

Caluna's picture

Great, now it works: thank you!!

cvp's picture

Thanks for the update. Watchface upload works fine! I get the message that the app responding, just keep waiting. Donation is out :)

German translation for 0.6.5 is ready, pullrequest is started.

Nice App, what about a daemon so that the app does not have to be open?

Two Problems I've found while using with an Band 2 and an Xperia.
The call Notification sometimes doesn't work, restarting amazfish help.
The second problem is a bit more complicated, but at the moment I do not understand under which circumstances it occurs. I suspect it is related to the notifcations you access.
Normaly I get one notification per conatct (contact name and last message) in the eventsview for messages from whatsapp or sailorgram. When they are marked as read in the web client the notification in the eventview disappear.

While running your app the eventsview show one notification per message from a contact (contact name first message, same contact name second message) and after they are marked as read by the web client on my PC the notification don't disappear from eventview until I delete them. After restarting your app everything was fine again and worked as expected.

 

cvp's picture

What about translations? Can we help you? I can help to translate to german :)

piggz's picture

Yes, do it on github, somone else is already doing sweding tranlations

cvp's picture

.... done ;)

Okerampa's picture

Thanks ! And we can set the alams now, great :)

Okerampa's picture

I think I got an issue since last version : I cannot go to status/weather/etc. by swiping left or righe. Swipe up and down work... If I connect to Mi Fit on androit, I can again swipe. But each time I reconnect using Amazfish swipe left and right won't work :(

Also, does Amazfish update weather ? I think not, but to be sure ^^

(Xperia X and version 0.6.0)

piggz's picture

settings - device - display items - save

and no, not yet

gomerus's picture

I had the same problem and was wondering what happened. All items where marked, but i didn't try the save button. Maybe it would be good to save when going back instead of having an extra save button?

mousse04's picture

On band2, time selection ia inverted. When selecting 12h, display ia 24h and vice versa ;)!!! But great, very goos app

mousse04's picture

Works with my band 2. In the forecast of supporting officially thr band 2, any chance to be able to set up alarms ? Thanks

cvp's picture

Amazfish Version: 0.5.5 || Amazfit FW Version V0.1.1.36 || SFOS 2.2.0.29

* The Heartrate Chart dont work on an Xperia X. Ot display only "No data" ... Or i use it wrong ?

 

piggz's picture

Click the button on the first page to download your data ... keep clicking until it says there is no more data.

You need to turn on all-day-hrm in settings to have it monitor your heartrate all the time.

cvp's picture

Thanks this works for me :) thank you for your work :)

rgrgrg's picture

Thanks for this app!

Couple of questions:

1) any plans for the Stratos?

2) does it integrate at all with something like Laufhelden?

 

Thanks again!

piggz's picture

1) no, not unless someone donated a device, however I will accept PRs for new devices

2) yes. initially i want to get live HR data to laufhelden

rgrgrg's picture

I'd be willing to chip in a few dollars for that purpose, maybe there are others that are also interested?

bundyo's picture

Thanks, works now!

bundyo's picture

Hmm, seems to depend on some cmake version, at least in 2.2.

I don't know if it was corrected since the 5.1.1 version, but with 4.7.1 I could pair only if I had updated my watch before using Mi Fit on an android device. Then it worked flawlessly :) One missing feature in this version : the call number or contact name is not shown, instean only "incoming call' ^^ But thumbs up otherwise !

Oh nice! My Amazfit Bip arrived today. And the version 0.5.1 has been released :)
I use a Sony Xperia X and the pairing and connecting works! Data is synchronized.

One UI bug: The refresh button for the heart rate monitor shifts to the right as soon as a numbuber is displaed.

I would be glad if more features will appear :)
