Windows Insider Preview 10.0.15007 Information

Hello there!

There is a big hype around latest Insider Preview for Windows Mobile. We get a lot of emails and comments about that and want to clarify couple things.



  1. There are connectivity issues on some devices.
    We haven't investigated that, but if the app works for you on a stable build and stops on Preview, this means that the issue is in OS update. This happened before and not once, so we believe that Microsoft will fix the problem soon, but this can take from a week to couple months. They have to do this anyway, for the sake of backward compatibility :)
    Reminding again: you are using Insider Preview builds on your own risk. Please, send complaints to Microsoft.
  2. GATT Server API was introduced in this build.
    Is it useful for us? Can't say sure, but, probably, no. We already can send notifications to the band with existing APIs.
    The idea behind GATT Server API is that band might become able to send notifications back to the phone/PC. AFAIK, Mi Band doesn't do this. Saying other words, Xiaomi should implement support for this on a hardware side first.
    If you possess some specific info regarding Mi Band and GATT Server, let us know.


If you read the post twice and something is still not clear, feel free to contact support.

See you soon!

Notify Mi Band. Update 1.2

Hello there!

Week ago we published the first version of "Notify Mi Band" and it seems to go pretty well, right? In the coming update, we improved several things both on the technical level and UI.


  1. Improved activation scenario. Now you won't need to close "Bind Mi Band" when you activate the app. But you might still need this when you open "Notify Mi Band" next time.
  2. Enhanced support for some apps, which didn't have a correct name displayed (it showed a path like "C:\Programs\.."). You still might see something weird in the app name, so contact us if that happens.
  3. Additional information support. We added "help" page that should provide answers to the "most hot" questions regarding the app.

"Bind Mi Band" also receives a small but recommended update 1.18.2.

Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.14936 Issues

Hello!

Microsoft has broken OS again. Unfortunately, we can't do anything about it. You can only wait for next build. As we always say, you use internal builds only at your own risk. Will hope that things become better soon.



P.S. Unfortunately, we've been very busy with other stuff in September, so notifications beta is delayed. We feel really sorry about it :( but we'll get much more time already starting from next week!

Release 1.17: More settings for Mi Band 2

Hi there!

We are happily rolling out the new update 1.17.0 that contains important fixes and improvements, mainly for Mi Band 2, but not only. Let's go through them.

1. For Mi Band 2:

  • You can configure which items on the screen are visible.
  • It's possible to allow the screen to highlight when you lift your wrist.
  • You can configure activity reminder, enable and disable it, set when it should work.




2. Everywhere around the app now we show date and time in your regional format settings. In the same format it should be visible on the screen of your Mi Band 2.

3. Now it's possible to set up to 10 alarms for Mi Band 2 (and up to 3 for older bands, as it was before).



4. Major fixes in synchronization for both Mi Band 2 and Mi Band 1.

5. Small stability, speed and UX fixes.


Well, it's quite a long list. We hope that you will like the changes.

Mi Band 2 support in update 1.16

We are gladly informing you about the upcoming update that finally provides support for Mi Band 2.



There was an intention to limit the scope of release to basic support of all the most important features. This goal was met. You can bind band, see steps, calories, distance and sleep information, measure heart rate, configure alarms and other settings.


Owners of older bands can be affected by this update also. Please, feel free to report any issues you may see.
