[UPDATED] Issues with new Mi Band (with white LEDs)

Hi there!

The main thing to know about new Mi Band: you need to upgrade your firmware to the latest version with the official application. Preferably, with iOS application.

During Sunday, October 25th the application will be back in Store. You won't see many changes, but the new version of Mi Band is handled by it more gracefully. Also, there are some internal strategic improvements.


Possible known issues that are fixed with new firmware:
- alarms are not working
- sleep is not tracked

Known issues with new firmware:
- band location feature doesn't work

  1. Yes, the alarm don't work with the new version, but your application are very good and it's the best mi band's app for windows phone. Keep going. I just have bought the app to incentive the developer.

    1. You can download .appxbundle from store and install it through Windows Phone 8.1 SDK. There is tutorial on the net, just google it.
      Tried it yesterday, works as expected, w/o alarm.

  4. Будильник работает нормально. и на версии 1.8.2 и на версии 1.8.3. Прошивка 5.15.8.21.
    Были небольшие проблемы с тем, что время будильник начал срабатывать позже на несколько минут чем стоял, но это лечится переназначением времени и синхронизацией. Поиск не работает, зато появились расстояние в км. и потраченные калории!

    1. Yes, you can do that in application settings and see US equivalents just by pressing "globe" sign at "Profile" page.

  8. Hi, I installed this app on October 26th, worked fine the whole day, counted all steps and the alarms are all still working, but since the next day until now I can´t open the app on my Nokia Lumia 630. It just jumps back. And it doesn´t track my sleep. I got an update on October 27th, didn´t make it any better.Thanks for help

  9. Hello,

    the "find mi band" function is not working. I tried 3 apps (Bind Mi Band, Mi Band Buddy Beta, Mi Band Companion). Is there any problem with firmware of Mi Band?

    It stopped working after updating to 1.0.11.6. :(

    1. It became a bit tricky with last versions of firmware, so may not work in WP. At some moment, it didn't work for me even with the official app.

      Delete
    2. Hello again, thx for reply. I have read, that this is OK. They probably changed the code to trigger location function.

      I tried iPhone, it vibrates during binding and location. With WP it does not. So definitely they changed something (on purpose to break 3d party apps?).

  10. Hi, just bought the full version of your app. Just wanted to know that why arent the led's glowing when I try to look at the band ?

    1. Hello,

      this function is not related to the app in phone. It's directly in Mi Band firmware. It takes some practice.

      Delete
    2. Errr.. what other way is there to look at a wrist watch ? :| You saying that i need to flick my wrist or something when trying to look at it for the led's to glow ?

    3. Guys are right :)
      Check this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPD3MHZVEt0
      You need some practice.

      Delete
    4. It seems like easy thing, but it is a little bit tricky. I don't know english terms for hand positions, but you need to have your arm straight down, relaxed and then do "excessive" hand movement, like looking at wrist watch.

      Try to watch this for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPD3MHZVEt0

      Hope it helps, good luck! :)

    1. Its JSON format, you can use JSON functions in your favourite programming language or try something online (f.e. http://www.jsoneditoronline.org/ )

    1. Hi! Could be a mistake in firmware. Sometimes it happens.
      Check if you don't have Live Tile feature enabled in the app.

      Delete
    2. thanks for advice ) Live Tile was turn off. And than I off SMART alarms fiatures. will watching tommorow

      Delete
    3. Seems that Smart eats battery more intensive. Since turn off that function charge consumption return to native values 2-3 % by day.

    4. Hi! That's strange. Should be some bad implementation inside Mi Band...
