Update 1.20. Way better inside



Hi!

We just pushed update 1.20 to the Store, so it should shortly arrive on your phones. Here is what we accomplished:


 1. One-time alarm. Now you can configure alarms to be non-repetitive. Also, we redesigned a bit the way how alarms page look.

2. We reworked internal logging system. Now you can easily submit diagnostic logs to us. Don't forget to include a description of your problems otherwise, we won't be able to help you.

3. We optimized main application view, so now it should be more responsive and load slightly faster.

4. Thanks to Vinicius Valença we added Brazilian Portuguese translation!

5. Improved app suspending/minimizing experience. From now it will disconnect from the band and reconnect when it is active again.

6. New firmware for Mi Band 2 (1.0.1.34).

7. Several UI tweaks here and there.

8. Plenty of bug fixes.

Even though not all of the changes are very visible, we hope that they will greatly improve your app experience.

If you like the changes and still haven't put 5 stars on the Store, go ahead and do it!

Will be coming back with next portion for updates soon. Next time - for Notify Mi Band!

See you!

UPDATE 1.20.1: Fix of a rare crash when updating main page, update of French translation.
UPDATE 1.20.2: Fix for firmware update not starting on Mi Band 2.
UPDATE 1.20.3: Possible fix of HR measurement stopping to work on Mi Band 2. Now saving manual HR measurements in the app's history. Dutch translation added, other translations fixed. Fix for Mi Band 1.0 firmware 1.0.15.0.

  1. Muy bien, las alarmas se ven mucho mejor. Además con el nuevo firmware recuperé la medición de cardio, que hacía tiempo no me funcionaba.
    Se agradecen los cambios, saludos

  2. Thanks, will the applications icons and notifications for calls be possible in not to distant future? One of two, would be very useful. Is very comforting to know that you are still worrying about the app and windows users.

  3. Thanks to all devs and others supporting this app!I started using my mi band 2 yesterday so I'm new to the game. Installed the app, bought the lifetime pro license and paired my device. Working nice so far!
    On my Lumia 950 XL I got the update to 1.20 installed from the store this morning. However, inside the app it says my firmware (1.0.1.34) is up to date but it's the same as yesterday. Can I force the app to re-check? And what's the new firmware version?
    One last question: How can I help to translate the application (My native language is Dutch).

  14. Hi, is it possible to make the tile a live tile? Showing distance, steps, last hearth rate? Also can you include in the app a continues HR measurements?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Awesome work guys! Love the single use alarms and suspend improvements!

    Any chance you can add some way to sync phone and miband alarms? I frequently don't wake up if I use just one and it's a chore setting them up in both places.

  16. Hi Bind mi Band team,

    The App is great, congratulations! I have 2 questions about it:
    1) Is there a way to import the .db backup file to an excell sheet?
    2) It seems that the Heart Rate automatic measure is not showed by the application. Only manual (using the touch buton) measures are shown in the history. Is that a bug?

    Once again congratulations for the great work on this App.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Activity.db is JSON file, so you can open it with text editor.
      We are adding manual HR measurements to history in next update.

  20. Please add an option to make the Band discoverable. Add an option to measure our heart rate continuously throughout the day in intervals set by the user 30 minutes, 15 minutes, 10 minutes, etc. Add an option to check our heart rate scale during the sleep cycle. Make the tile life showing step taken calories burned, distance walked, and heart rate. Add in history heart rate too.

  32. Hi !
    Endomondo recognize HR, see Mi Band 2 like HR monitor, if You can add function to continous HR, then in Endomondo we can monitor our heart rates! (i think, if You add only loop for HR checking in background, activating with ON/OFF trigger that's probably all) ;)

    Cheers !

    1. We are going to check this out. But what is really happening is that Mi Band has non-standard HR service implementation, that's why other app's do not work with it. At least, they didn't when we tried last time.

  50. Hello Ian would you like to disconnect Mi Band 2 from the Bind Mi Band application? I have a problem synced Mi Band with Onedrive, but I formatted my Smartphone, so I had to uninstall the application, only when it installs again and the application "restores user data" Mi Band does not connect more in Bind Mi Band, this problem has happened once to solve I had to create another account at Microsoft and I made the access in the store and downloaded the Bind Mi Band and connected Mi Band, but now I did it again and it did not work.

    Would you like to move the Bind Mi Band to the MicroSD Card or install the application on the SD Card? Not to happen that kind of problem that happened to me?

    1. Unfortunately, as it I was saying earlier, it does not seem to be true in both cases. For calls notifications we require support on OS level, in case of phone unblocking - it is Xiaomi, who should make Mi Band compliant with Windows Hello security requirements.

    2. So... No hope ��
