Future of the xdrip miband project


I’ve decided to improve miband integration, and change the method which was used to represent glucose data for MiBand4. Instead of the date modifying and using a custom watchface which interpreter a custom date format in correct way, i will generate entire watchface with a dynamic background and upload this watchface to the band. By using this method, all the disadvantages of changing the date on the watch will disappear, and your watch will be fully functional. So it would be possible to use it with any program, and all band features like weather, music control, fitness progress, and more would work.

In addition, this method allowing to display any data on the watch screen.

Upd. 29.01.2020

I’ve finished a new xdrip version . Would be grateful if someone can help to test it on different miband versions.

If this version would be stable, i’ll create a pull request for the official Xdrip apk version. So there would be a chance this patch would be added to the official aplication.

Upd. 29.04.2020

Great news! The pull request was recently approved and merged into official xdrip application. At the moment it is available in the latest nightly build xdrip version which can be downloaded from the following URL https://github.com/NightscoutFoundation/xDrip/releases

New watchface legend

Since v0.2.3 it is outdated watchface view

Real view on miband4 and v0.2.4 with enabled graph and bolus

Configuration tutorial by steps for v 0.2.x and 0.3.x

1. Obtaining auth key

If you want to use xdrip with Mi Band4, Mi Band5 or Amazfit Band5, you need to get Mi Band Auth key (for MiBand2 and Miband3 devices, you can skip this step). The Auth key can be obtained with these simple steps (was copied from https://www.freemyband.com/ )

  1. Unpair band from the existing official app
  2. Uninstall official app
  3. 1. For MiBands. Download and install the modified Mi Fit application
  4. 2. For Amazfit. Download and install the modified Zepp application
  5. Login into the Mi Fit(or Zepp in case of Amazfit) with your email account
  6. Pair the band
  7. Enable band visibility in the MiFit(or Zepp) settings.
  8. Now you can uninstall modified Mi Fit (or Zepp) application and install official application or any other APK you like to use together with MiBand. If you would use official Mi Fit(or Zepp) application, you would need to Login into the Mi Fit(or Zepp) with the email which was used with patched application.
  9. Finished! You can find your Auth key on /sdcard/freemyband folder of your phone

Notice

1. If you reset (MAC address of band change) or unpaired your band, the Auth key need to be calculated again. The miband will change the MAC address, so you should change mac and auth key in xdrip(for auto search you can clear mac address and auth key fields)
2. The modded mifit apk is compatible with any firmware version installed on your band
3. You can do this procedure with any phone (if your phone doesn’t allow install apk outside Play Store, you can ask your friend to obtain this auth code for you)

2. xdrip configuration. Connecting to miband

  1. If you have original xdrip application installed on your phone, you would need to delete it. To save all your existent settings and glucose history, you can export your current database into file. To do this, click to the 3 dots on the main xdrip screen, select Import/export feature -> export database.
  2. Install latest patched xdrip from this link xdrip-miband. If you had a database backup, you can restore it by using export/import feature mentioned earlier.
  3. If you skipped “Obtaining auth key” phase (only for miband 2 and 3), go to MiFit settings, and enable band visibility.
  4. Place miband near the phone.
  5. Go to xdrip Settings -> Smart watch features -> MiBand and enable option “Use MiBand”.
  6. Normally miband should be automatically found, and you will see a notification with your model name. If this happen, you can skip next step.
  7. If it wasn’t found automatically, make sure the band visibility option was enabled in MiFit, then disable “Use MiBand” option and repeat step three. You can also enter the mac addres manually (in this case, there no need for visibility option enabled).
  8. Now the miband should be connected, but it is required authentification. On MiBand2 and MiBand3, you should approve authentification by touching the miband button. For MiBand4, MiBand5 or Amazfit Band5 you don’t need to do anything. Normally auth key should be automatically extracted from the file /sdcard/freemyband which was generated by patched Mi Fit(or Zepp) application. But if it was not generated, you should manually enter the key in “Auth key” field and retry everything from step 4.
  9. Finally, you should see the message that your device was successfully authenticated.

3. xdrip configuration. General settings and installing glucose watchface

3.1. Configuration for MiBand4, MiBand5 or Amazfit Band5

Upd (30.12.20 )The “BG readings as notification” was removed in Ver 0.3.2 (09.09.2020) So now For MiBand2 and 3, the readings would be sent as notification. For MiBand4,5 and Amazfit Band5 would be used watchface uploading.

If you use a MiBand4, you can receive a glucose readings in two ways

  1. In standard miband way by using the text notifications
  2. Displaying glucose values on the main band screen with help of dynamical custom watchface..
  1. When use a text notification, xdrip would send a message to the miband after every glucose reading.
  2. When use a “dynamical custom watchface” the xdrip will generate a new watchface after every reading and will send this watchface to the miband. This option available only for MiBand4. All miband features would work as before. The watchface with required measurement units (mmol or mg/dl ) would be automatically installed. It would use the units from the general xdrip settings.

The option “BG readings as notification” in MiBand settings allow to controll the way you prefer to receive glucose values. When it is enable , you would receive notifications after every glucose readings. And when it is disabled, this fancy “dynamical custom watchface” would be used.

You can also enable option Send alarms to receive glucose low/hight alerts. If you enable this option, you would get bg alerts as a phone call. Instead of the caller number, you would see an alarm text with the current glucose value. During alarm notification, it is possible to push on the ignore button on you band to skip alarm or push on hangup button to snooze alert. The low/high alarms can be configured directly in xdrip general settings

It is also possible to enable night mode feature (in miband screens/ features menu) This feature allow to decrease glucose synchronization interval by specifying interval value and mode start/end time. This mode allow to improve miband battery life by reducing synchronization frequency.

Since v 0.2.4 it is possible to display bolus on the band (if this information present in xdrip). The bolus data can be displayed only when graph option enabled.

Finally to send reading to the see miband you should enable “Send reading” option

Notice

1. Keep your watch nearby with your phone, while phone transmitting data (actually the real BlueTooth connection distance can be even up to 50 meters 🙂 ) If your band will lost connection with the phone while transmitting watchface, it will automatically will use default watchface. This watchface would be replaced again after connection would be established
2. Take a note to the bluetooth connection status and last synchronization date to make sure you see not outdated data. Always remember to
3. The band will not accept a new watcface if battery level is less then 10%. In this case the band will automatically switch to notification mode.

3.2. Configuration for MiBand2 and 3

The only possible way to receive bg values on these band versions is to receive them as a text notification. Such notification would be sent to miband after every reading.

If you have some advices regarding features that you want to see, or want to see similar feature on some specific band type, please write them in the comment of the donation form.

The latest version which support MiBand5 can be found here

Ver 0.2.4.1 (15.03.2020)

  • Fixed App Crash at the settings screen on the first run.

Ver 0.2.4 (10.03.2020)

  • New. Added option to display bolus (when enabled graph)
  • Fixed issue with when BG numbers were displayed without infill
  • For better readability, BG number size was slightly increased
  • Added bg prediction line on the graph (would display 30 minutes prediction line)

At this moment, most of the issues were fixed, and i added many new features so I hope this would be the latest version 🙂 I have plans to merge it into the official xdrip build (if it would be accepted)

Ver 0.2.3 (23.02.2020)

  • New. Added option to disable graph on watch
  • New. Added a new watchface without graph (would be used when disabled graph)
  • New. Added option to collect heart rate data from miband. Update interval can be configured in MiFit or any thirdparty application. To see heart rate data in xdrip, the options “Use Health Data” and “Heart Rate sensor” which is located in Settings -> Smartwarch Features -> Smart watch sensors, should be enabled.
  • Improvement. Updated graph watchface view
  • Fixed. Authorisation issue on some miband 4 devices
  • Syncronized with official xdrip version

Added a new options which are available only when enabled engineering mode https://github.com/NightscoutFoundation/xDrip/wiki/Engineering-Mode

  • New. Added option which allow to disable hight MTU (when enabled, can fix watchface sync issues which may happen on some phones, but the watchface uploading would take much more time)
  • New. Added possibility to install custom watchface. The custom watchface files ‘my_watchface.bin’ and ‘my_image.png’ should be placed into into ‘xdrip’ folder on your phone. “my_watchface.bin” is a normal watchface and my_image.png is a watchface background image. The background image shouldn’t have more than 128 colors. For faster delivery and longer battery life, the wathcface size should be as small as possible.
  • New. Added offset option for custom watchface (defines offset between top of the background image and xdrip generated data)

Ver 0.2.2 (09.02.2020)

  • Improvement. Added BG update interval in night mode.
  • Improvement. UI improvements on the band settings screen.
  • Syncronized with official xdrip version

Ver 0.2.1.1 (03.02.2020)

  • Watchface. Fixed HR value when no data available.
  • Watchface. Increased font size for delta and bg date.
  • Fix in watchface generation algorithm which should fix “black” watchfaces reported by some users.
  • Fix. Requesting higher MTU size and use the size negotiated by Bluetooth protocol. (should fix watchface synchronization issue).
  • Improvement. BG alarms now work as call. On MiBand 3 and 4 the ignore button will delay alarm, and hangup will snooze alert.
  • Improvement. Authentification for miband2 and 3 (no need to approve auth after disconnection).
  • Improvement. Decrease brightness when uploading watchface. This can significantly improve band battery life. Also makes watchface update to be not so noticeable to people around.
  • Improvement. Added night mode settings.
  • Resend BG as notification if watchface cannot be installed when the battery level is less than 10%

Ver 0.2.0.1 (29.01.2020)

  • Quick-fix to fix a empty watchscreen and small styling issues

Ver 0.2.0 (29.01.2020)

  • New algorithm to represent glucose data, which use a dynamic watchface with a custom background. This allows using all miband features. (only for MiBand4)
  • Like in previous versions, MiBand 2 and 3 can receive bg values as a notifications.

  4. Nice approach, indeed.
    Nevertheless I decided to stay with 0.1.4 and wait for updates of that – 0.2 has the habit of switching the screen on every 5 minutes, and even if it’s only for a few seconds, it’s distracting.
    Even worse, this behaviour attracts attention of other people, and I don’t want to explain what’s going on there, and why I need to get told about my blood glucose level.

    If a way can be found to update the display silently, I’ll return.

    Thanks nevertheless for this awesome development!

    1. Most possibly the xdrip cannot find your watch. Please go to miband setting in xdrip and try to enter the band mac address manually (the mac address can be found directly in the band menu or in mifit settings). After this, exit to the main xdrip menu, and go back to miband menu. Now you should see the auth filed, which normally should be populated with the correct key which was automatically extracted from the patched mifit application.

        1. Unfortunately, no. This watchface was optimized as much as possible to achieve a very small file size (for faster delivery) and it has dynamically generated background so there no way to move elements on the background.

                1. Hi Artem,
                  yes, I am aware of xdrip not needing any 0x in front of the auth key. Also obvious, because as far as I remember, the auth key field in xdrip is limited in characters, so an additional 0x would cut off the last 2 digits/characters of the key.
                  I had reset the MiBand4 and started the process: Installed the MiFit mod app, paired the miband, made sure the app had written the auth-key-file, removed the mifit mod app from the running apps, forced the app to stop (no deinstall), removed the band from the systems known bluetooth devices, called gadgetbridge, added the band (with using the key from the written file, prepended by 0x).
                  Then I unpaired the miband from gadgetbridge, stoppt the app (killing forced), unpaired miband in the system. I switched to xdrip (always active, as I am looping), tried adding the miband, but got the same 108308 error with doing so.
                  So I thought, maybe this only works on the first thirdparty app, so I reset the band once again, added it to mitfit mod app as before, killed the mifit mod app, removed miband from the known bluetooth devices from the system, went into xdrip and tried to add the miband there. but again I get the 108308 error (with the current MAC and auth key of course).

                  Martin

                      thank you for releasing your xdrip+ 0.2.3. I tried out this new version as suggested, and I could authenticate the MiBand 4 successfully this time. Now I can focus on the minor settings 😉

  19. Hello,
    At first, grest job. Only one comment and one question.
    I think that is better to show the number of minutes from last reading, like Nightscout, than last time.

    Why some people cant install the watchface, they tellme that the band is linked with modified xDrip but the watchface doesn’t install.

    Thanks!

    1. I’m afraid this is not possible to do. The wachface is static and to display a number of minutes from last reading it would require to syncronize watchface every minute. Such approach will significantly decrease battery life, in addition, if band will lose connection with the phone, this value would not be updated and you would think that this is a fresh data. So the only possible way to display last reading time is to use a current approach.

      If you mean that issue when miband cannot synchronize watchface. Still not sure. Seems this is somehow related to the android build. There was an update that seems works for most of the people, but there are still some people that have synchronization issue. So at least make sure the people use the latest xdrip version available here

      1. Hi.
        I decided to write a comment because I think already the third day.
        I will add that I have already set up one mi4 team and it works beautifully. Our bands differed in that mine was used so far, and a friend took a new one from the packaging. Works great! Thanks for your instructions I did according to them.

        Unfortunately my team can’t do it. I do everything the same.
        Earlier she was connected to her daughter’s phone. However, I removed the steam and entered the factory settings. And then I set up my phone in the same way as my friends.

        On the band, when a new sugar reading appears in xdrip, does it vibrate and show if it ‘evaporates’ now?
        And every time this way. I click ok and nothing happens. A message pops up saying that I should push the screen. I press and nothing.

        I have no idea, it’s frustrating. : (((((
        Can I count on help?

  21. hello, my problem is that after the first correct installation of mifit mod, obtaining the key and correct installation of xdrip-miband ver 0.2.2 I had problems with synchronization, so I reset miband4, uninstalled both modes, deleted the freemyband directory and returned to the original xdrip. Now, when reinstalling mifit mod, it no longer creates this directory, after transferring the installation file to another phon it also does not create it. I have no way to get this data to install your latest version. Please help fix what I have unwittingly broken

    1. This is an optimal text size to fit 3 possible blood sugar digits on the screen. But i’ll check if it is possible to increase it a little bit. Regarding heart rate, yes it was removed from th main screen, there was to much information on the screen, in addition, you can see the heart rate in the miband menu. The step numbers should be at the bottom of the screen (near to the battery)

    2. Hello Stephan,

      I had the same issue using watchface without graph.
      I didn’t touch anything and BG numbers font was correct in the next update.

      Rigth now I have changed watchface design and I had the same problem with BG value.
      When BG value has updated, it looks great. In the next pictures you can see before ( https://imgur.com/tWCO3Ui ) and after ( https://imgur.com/IU11Vg6 ).

      Bigdigital, any idea why the first time BG is difficult to read and later is works OK?

  35. Great work. Love the Miband option. Thank you! Was it difficult to add the Miband option to Xdrip? The reason Im asking is I use the Bubble device on my Libre14 and its connected to Diabox. Then Xdrip picks up the information via Internal HTTP on the phone through Diabox. I just got the Ticwatch pro and want to use it as a collector when the phone is out of range with out using Diabox. This would require the Bubble version of Xdrip which does not have the Miaband option. I use the Miband at night when I sleep to get notifications that vibrate so I dont wake the wife.

    1. Hi,
      in xdrip in the settings for the Miband is an option called “BG readings as notification”. This must turn off to get the watchface on the Miband, otherwise you get only notification.
      This was my fault too at the beginnig 🙈

        1. The watchface will be sent each time the display gets updated, there’s nothing you must do.
          But – as I reported below – I had to install 0.2.2, 0.2.3 and 0.2.4.1 in this order to get the graph working. You should try this first. (If you cannot get the band paired/authenticated, go and restart the phone.)

          1. Thank you Steve, I still can’t get it to work.
            I downloaded 0.2.2, 0.2.3 and then 0.2.4.1 and managed to pair and authenticate the Miband but nothing is being sent. No watchface if I leave BG Readings as Notification unchecked.
            Did you have to pair and authenticate the Miband after each xdrip version?
            ie. install 0.2.2 – pair with miband, check sensor and transmitter is working,
            install 0.2.3 , same
            then 0.2.4.1?
            I have a Samsung S7 if that somehow matters.
            I factory reset the band and used the FreeMyBand miband app for a new authorization code and that all seems to work – just no graph or watchface –
            However if I change it in settings, BG as normal notification to Miband works again now.

            Any other settings I need to check or can try out?

  38. Finally, I got 0.2.4.1 working, but only after installing 0.2.2 and 0.2.3 first, and after a few restarts of both the band and the phone to get the band authorized.
    Even bolus marks do show now.
    So far so good – but since we have switched to daylight savings time a few days ago, how would the band learn about the new time zone? I had to disconnect it from xDrip, add it to GadgetBridge and run the setup there – with the first update of the settings (e.g. the selection of features) also the time was set to the correct zone. Will I have to repeat that twice per year? (What if the band’s clock drifts? Will it get re-synced, by xDrip only?)
    I hope the MiBand code will be merged into the xDrip master soon – there have been updates of xDrip since 0.2.4.1 was released, and there are more to come.
