Release 1.15: New logo + deep/light sleep distinction

Hello,

We are very happy to announce 1.15 release of Bind Mi Band. Key features of the update are new logo/tiles and light/deep sleep recognition. Let's look into more details of that.


First of all, we send a million thanks to Kaustubh Adhav who bravely survived all the stages of icon development and discussions and made it in the way you see it. We hope you all like it.

Light/deep sleep distinction is a big step for us. The development is still in progress and there will be improvements in future. At the moment, we don't use HR sensor data from Mi Band, because the data we get from it requires additional filtering. These improvements will be prepared for next so you will be able to see HR graph also.



We still would like to honestly warn you: Mi Band is not a certified device for sleep stages analysis and our app especially. Mi Band's sensors are not suitable for such analysis, so you can't use it for medical purposes.

Regarding Mi Band 2. We get many emails every day with questions if the app will support Mi Band 2 and when. Unfortunately, there is no immediate answer. Like many of you, we are waiting for the band to arrive. After that we'll start looking into support of it. When will this happen? It depends on how different is 2nd version from the 1st. So I wouldn't expect this earlier than in July.

Have a nice June!


P.S.
Thanks to translators team for updating most of the app's languages!
Feel free to report any issues you may see by email (it's much easier to track your problem and provide support). You may see one issue immediately: deep sleep value not displayed on the main page. But it will be fine next night :)

    Why not?
    A very large inaccuracy?

    1. Because Mi Band is capable to only register your movements and heart rate (some models). It's not enough to make conclusion about sleep stage. Only brain activity measuring can give true results.

  8. I would like to thank you! That's an amazing and necessary step into the future of the app. I think the HR is a very important measure to take an insight about how deep is the sleep. I hope to see it working soon.

    1. I have such problem. I have Pro version and i can not find sleep diagrams too(language: Russian)
      Where we should to tap?

    2. You have to go to the graphs and than choose the list view for sleep. Touch one of the rows and you can see the graph. For last sleep you can touch the listing with that last sleep in the pahe with steps (home page of the app)

  12. Is there a menu option to enter sleep graph or do i need to tap somewhere?

    1. That's problem with the device, not with the app. The app is only reading the data stored in the device.

      Delete
    2. Solution? some reset is possible?

      Delete
    3. under menu open device, select submenu (with ...) and there is locate, reboot and unbind

  19. Great update, loving the sleep data and the new tile. any chance of live tile, maybe flipping to show previous days step count alternate with hours sleep? Keep up the good work.

      also try this:
      - unbind band
      - close app completely
      - open bluetooth settings and delete band from device list
      - turn off and turn on bluetooth again
      - pair band again with bluetooth
      - start Bind Mi Band app
      - pair band...

    3. Hi, I have the same problem.
      I applied your solution but doesn´t work, the software read the pulse, work "localice the band" (the band vibrates), and I can see the charge of battery, but don´t synchronizes.
      I have the last version of firmware.
      I'm on the windows fast loop , but with last update of windows the band worked a few days. I don´t think that the last windows update be the cause.
      Best Greetings.

  34. For me it works when:
    1)I reboot the band
    2)I unpair the band
    3)I uninstall and reinstall Bind Mi Band

    But next time I try, ...don't synchronises again!

  36. Hello Ian and all the devs!

    May I suggest a feature request? I ordered total of 7 unit band 1S / PULSE for the family. I updated fw on the first 2 with your app in the middle of May (it was 1.14 at that time the latest version), it was fine. Just last week, 5 new band 1S arrived. 2 units I used the android Mi Fit app: FW update was still fine. For 2 other units, I used your app v1.15 to update the FW. Both of them got semi-bricked. The main fw seems have been applied (step1 install and verify), and step2 install also seems fine, but the verification timeouts and fails. After this failure, the HR sensor is not working anymore (no green light flashing for the measure command) , and the android app shows the HR fw version as 0.0.0.0. I cannot retry the fw update in your app, as its already says uptodate, even though the HR fw seems damaged/broken. I found on github, that its possible both downgrade and upgrade the fw on these devices. Do you think its possible to make a button to retry fw update even if the version SEEMS correct (as your app cannot show the HR FW version, only the main fw version)?

    For reference, here are 2 useful links from github:

    https://github.com/Freeyourgadget/Gadgetbridge/wiki/Mi-Band-Firmware-Information

    https://github.com/flycodepl/mi-band-firmware-analyse

    If you dont think your app can recover my 2 semi-bricked units, I have to find another was to solve my pain. Unfortunately I dont have Access to that anroid mi fit app, it was Just my friends borrowed Phone, I use only WP Phone.
