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 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 their device code.

Hi, this application supports clock GTR?

piggz's picture

not yet, can you gie the exact name of the GTS from the bluetooth settings page?

Stezkoy's picture

don't have a gts

piggz's picture

i mean gtr!

Stezkoy's picture

Amazfit GTR

DA:31:AA:XX:XX:47

alex000090's picture

Dear piggz, could you add sleep time interval when the phone don't send any notification to a clock?

piggz's picture

Yes, there is already an open issue for this

rdomschk's picture

Thank You very mutch for this genial app. I got a Amazfit GTS on my Birthday an could coupple it with this way. My question is if is possible to add an option to increase the font sizes in messages on the watch. In the androidapp it is adapted on the system fonts of android. 

Now I have found a moded newest Firmware 0.0.8.46 mod (with Font 12) for the GTS from here: https://t.me/huamifw/303

But how can I send this to the watch? It are 3 files (fw, ft and res) Maybe I can only send the ft 0 font file. Could you sharing your knowledege with me please?

AlphaX2's picture

Do you mean this auth-key thing? Getting the key might be anoying, but not to hard. I have some problems with disconnecting and reconnecting, but the phone is just on the table and very near. These reconnects or the connection itself seems to drain the battery (on phone and GTS) a lot.

ahjolinna's picture

I just tried to connect GTS with my Xperia 10 and I noticed that when it tired to find/scan for the device your app didn't notice that bluetooth wasnt ON (yet) and just said after a while that couldn't fine the device. Maybe add a check if bluetooth has/hasn't been enabled

 

PS. I really hope the connecting process for GTS will someday become way easier than what it's now

jpn9s's picture

Shall it be possible to have an following some day: When watch is connected via bt to Sailfish phones, a silent mode is activated automatically?

AlphaX2's picture

Hi, I am really happy with my new Amazfit GTS that works well for now. Hope you keep up the great work, would be cool to see a watchface install option added. The two default faces of the GTS are okay, but not great. Thank you a lot.

piggz's picture

you could help by opening an issue on github, and if possible, gather the bluetooth snoop log from an android device as it sends a watchface to the device, this way, i have something to reverse engineer.  Gadgetbridge does not yet support sending watchfaces to the GTS, so I dont have a reference implementation to work from

subeditor's picture

Any chance to pair with Huawei/Honor devices?

piggz's picture

ive no plans to, though i will always accept PRs if someone implements a new device.

erdzas's picture

Hi piggz,

I use Amasfish 1.1.1.1 on XA2 plus with the last os version, since few day.

I have noticed a large battery drain (my consumption has doubled), This is not the case with previous version of the app and miband 2.

And my watch loose 20% of battery per day.

jpn9s's picture

Since Feb 7th, thus the fifth day, Cor with XA2 SFOS 3.2.1.20 + Amazfish ver 1.1.1 has been working very flawlessy. Great! Thank you.

velemas's picture

Pairing with Amazfit Cor 2 (Amazfit Band 2) does not work in 1.1.1.

Caluna's picture

Hi did anyone test, if GTS support also ads suppor fot GTR?

ninepine's picture

Amazfit GTS

Hi @piggz Many thanks for the App and the work on the recent beta for GTS. Here are some comments / feedback. Not sure I have done everything right but hope these notes are helpful.

I’m running Amazfish 1.1.1-1 on Sony Xperia XA2 running Sailfish Nuuksio 3.2.1.20 connecting to Amazfit GTS with Firmware v0.0.8.37 (Have not attempted to flash any firmware files described as for Amazfit Bip). Watch firmware updated using Amazfit for Android on an Android phone to latest firmware (0.0.8.3)

Pairing. Have paired natively in Sailfish Settings – It is showing as Connected. No need to get key for pairing etc. In settings Debug info though the Connection State is :authfailed

App shows Battery level and Heartrate correctly and Bluetooth refreshes every few minutes to update. On Steps screen the current step count is captured and shown but sometime this is augmented temporarily by a factor of 10. There is a list of dates below the step count but this is not bound to the step count. Moving between dates shows the step count for the current date rather than changing for each day. There is no Data / graphs shown in any of the graph boxes but this is the first day connected. Sleep shows no data and is zero. Analysis screen shows no data.

Not sure is I should have flashed to BIP firmware or if the database is OK. No option to Download Data (greyed pulldown option).

Some clarification on whether to flash the Bip firmware for the GTS would be appreciated please.

Hope this is helpful. Best wishes,

Mike

piggz's picture

1. DO NOT flash a bip FW to a GTS

2. You definitiely need the pairing code and to pair through the app as described, its not enough to just "pair" it in jolla-settings, without that, the watch wont authenticate to the app.

ninepine's picture

@piggz Thanks for clarifying. Will pair through the app. 

jpn9s's picture

Or multiplies with 10 (10x)the steps as mentioned earlier allready.

Funny, my Cor attached to Amafish counted steps earlier without any problem. After that yesterday-crisis due to the jump to Vers 1.1.0 / 1.1.1 my Amafish step counting went crazy. I have SFOS 3.2.1.0.20 in my XA2, too.

carmenfdezb's picture

This version fix bugs for amazfit bip? In v1.1 I can't send any file to my watch and it doesn't shows right values in steps.

carmenfdezb's picture

Ok, I've installed v1.1.1 and it only has bug about steps

jpn9s's picture

I read of Sailfish API Documentation. Unfortunately I do not have any skill for any adding. I'm sorry.

jpn9s's picture

Works now for Cor, too. Thank you very much. Va bene adesso.

jpn9s's picture

Mi scusi
. ☺ Bluetooth shows Amazfit Cor... But I do not understand what dialog? Cor is not shown in pairing options.

jpn9s's picture

Thus 1.1.0. Cor does not pair with app. App only shows 'Start service'. Nothing else.

piggz's picture

Can you give the name of the Cor as it appears in the sailfish settings dialog?
