Compete yourself! History of steps released in 1.5.0... and actually working

With small delay we are proud to announce 1.5.0 release of "Bind Mi Band" application that includes history of steps. This feature was internally tested more than month and last UI tweaks were done just yesterday, but now we believe that it is ready to be shipped to everyone.

History displaying has two modes: chart and list. Feel free to choose which one you like more.


In chart mode a green line shows your current daily goal, so you can see if you reached it. 



Your steps history needs to be synchronized at least one time per several days. Out tests showed that Mi Band can save up to 6 days of data, but there are no official guaranties. Also, remember, that synchronization of Mi Band with other device or app will clear all the saved data from it. 

Here are the future plans regarding history:
- cumulative sleep history
- detailed daily history view, where you can see your different activities like walking, running sleeping, etc.
- export/import of history on OneDrive
- synchronization with Mi account or some other fitness tracking cloud service

In August we want to concentrate on localization of the app into most popular languages. Soon there will be more info about it. If you want to help, don't ask questions while it's too early :)

Thank you all for patience and start tracking your activity!

[UPDATED]
It was a terrible day, during which all the people were writing to me letters with the issue of app crashing, that I couldn't reproduce. The bug was in graphs displaying component and was really easy to fix, but very hard to find. Now it seems to be fixed, so you are welcome to try :)
The crashing issue is fixed in version 1.5.0.8, so make sure that you have updated to it.

  5. I confirm the problem by running history. When you try to run the application closes and the phone jumps back into the system.
    Nokia Lumia 530 (WP8.1 update 1) + Mi Band (FW 1.0.9.65)

    Otherwise, thank you for your work, the application is great. Thank you.

    1. Also, I confirm that 1.5.0.8 does the trick. Well done, I say, well done indeed!

  12. Ян, we mean regular vanilla restart, not factory restore :) I don't think anyone is actually crazy enough to wipe the phone just to revive a single app.
    (in retrospect, these may be the famous last words...)

  13. Sorry if I sound very critical but no other option!

    I received the band as gift and with no calories and sleep tracking - it wasn't much useful, and among the options available in windows marketplace ( I chose Windows over Android long back - no regrets ever) - this one looked like a decent one. So i went for a paid version.

    the steps tracking is decent.

    The sleep tracking is almost useless for me.

    It assumes I fall asleep within 3-4 minutes after getting into bed. Grossly incorrect assumption!

    Even awakening count isn't very accurate. The other night, I got up at around 3 to go to bathroom - and the next morning i see it shows my sleep tracking as if I slept at 3 AM!

    For a person who lies in bed awake for a long time before falling asleep, measuring the sleep quality and actual sleeping time sounds like a crucial thing and very reason to wear a Fitness band whole time. But that purpose is not solved.

    I expected more smartness. Though Not sure if its the limitation of the band or the App.

    and the major problem i have is - every time i open app and sync data - after closing App, my Bluetooth goes crazy. the Bluetooth setting shows as if its been Off, but on button to put it ON is disabled. Many times my whole phone goes into a limbo status where except for call nothing works. so I need to restart the mobile. That is a major block and must be fixed!

    1. Hi!

      Regarding your last described issue: disable Live Tile feature. It's experimental and doesn't work good on Windows Phone.

      Of course, sleep tracking could be better and more precise. We have plans to improve it. But don't be too strict, it's just a band, it can't give you much accuracy...

  20. good day, it would be possible to change the input method for height and weight? Slider are quite inaccurate and Nokia Lumia 530 I have problems to hit the correct value. Perhaps it would be better used to specify the value or write a list such as the award date. Thanks for your work and look forward to future innovations.

  22. The sleep tracking works not very good, (maybe it's xiaomi failure,not aplication?) When I put down my band in bathroom it has been recorded as "sleeping" and overwrite my last night data...
