We have some news regarding Windows 10 and Mi Band. Let's start with the bad one. (update is in the end of the post)
Since Windows 10 release, we received numerous letters regarding issues of Bluetooth stability and connectivity. All of them seem to be fixed in update 10586.218. After it was released, issues almost completely disappeared (here and here the Bluetooth-fix is confirmed).
But in latest Windows 10 Insider Preview update 14322, which is on Fast Ring of updates, Bluetooth LE support seems to be broken again. We diagnosed the issue, tried to push some improvements, but OS doesn't give access to Bluetooth device, throwing different exceptions. From some users, we hear that the same issue is happening to similar apps, so it's not a problem of Bind Mi Band.
We can't do anything with it, guys. You knew what you signed for when joined Insider Preview. So try to roll back to the stable version of OS or wait for next update. If you got any solution or possible fix to the issue, please let us know.
And now to the good news...
Notifications support is coming for Windows 10!
On Build 2016 there was a short demo and the speaker later confirmed that this API will be released in Windows 10 Anniversary update. Other sources report that this will happen by the end of July 2016. By that time, we'll try to deliver a first solution which will empower all Windows users with notifications on their Mi Band's (hooray!).
Oh, yeah, one more thing. I've started to receive questions regarding Mi Band 2 and if it will be supported by our app. We know nothing about this band, how different it is from previous versions, there are only first rumors. So let's wait until official release or even day when we get it.
Have a nice weekend! (with W10M 10586.218 :)
UPDATE: In Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview 14342 Bluetooth issues are fixed! Yeah!
