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.


Some work regarding secondary and new features is still not completed, which will be resolved in next updates. We decided to postpone these fixes so the scope of changes will be smaller and less UI work should be coded and tested for this release.


Let's go through future plans and current limitations for Mi Band 2:
1. Configure up to 10 alarms.
At the moment you can configure three. We need to do a major refactoring on this feature in the app, so it will handle more alarms.
2. Configure displayed items on screen (like distance, calories, etc.).
3. Configure "lift-wrist-bright-view" behavior.
4. Configure activity reminder.
5. Firmware update.

So, please, don't be upset regarding these features, you will get them in next updates.


Also, there are some questions on how the app should treat calories and distance calculated by Mi Band 2. New band does it on its own, so you see values on the screen, but in our application, we also calculate these stats and we suspect that our calculations are better. We take into account your temp of movements for each minute, so the result should be more precise. Having two different values in the app and in the band can be confusing, so right now it's still an open question. What do you think?


From now our major focus will be on notifications for all versions of Mi Band.


Have great last weeks of summer!

UPDATE 1.16.1: Improved synchronization of 12/24 hour format, fixed for some regions. Just open "device" page and time format on your band will be synchronized with your phone.

UPDATE 1.16.2: Fix of synchronization issues for some timezones.

    5. You are right.
      Mine has switched to 12h after synced on Bind Mi Band.
      Really need a manual time switcher.

    I think you should remain your values, but create a button, say "raw data", wherein it would be possible to have a look to the bracelet values.

  9. I updated my mi band 2 through mifit, but my last vers of my bind is 1.0.0.16, so, what can i do in this situation??

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sorry for the -slightly- offtopic question:

    sleep analysis: how does the app decide if I was in deep sleep or in light sleep? Does the band decide from firmware the decision, and only sends the simple DEEP/LIGHT information to the app? Basically, what I want to know, if I can see the raw heart rate measurements (values) during my sleep. So I can see if my heart rate was too high during the night and thats why the band considers I didnt sleep deep.

  11. I have to keep restarting my phone to get it to Sync. I'm using a Nokia 640XL LTE with Latest Windows 10. Any ideas?

    1. Uninstall the software and Bluetooth off, install the software , Bluetooth on, pair and connect, then open Bind Mi Band and that's all

      Delete
  12. Guys, please, send all your support-related questions on email. Makes it much easier to process and follow-up every case. Don't forget to provide which band you have, firmware version and version of app (if you write email by link from the app, this info will be filled in automatically *woohoo*)

    For those, having 12/24h format issues, please, attach your regional settings info.

    Also, there are some issues with Store, so 8.1 devices are not getting the update. I'm trying to reach MS regarding this.

    Thanks.

    P.S. Once more: use email for support. Can be found in contacts section.

    2. Отвяжи браслет, привяжи к андроиду или айфону через официальное приложение, браслет обновит прошивку. Потом вернись обратно. У меня так заработало.
