A new xdrip bring Amazfit GTR2, GTR2e, GTS2, GTS2e and GTR42 support


I’m glad to announce a new version of xdrip which brings Amazfit GTR2(GTR2e)  and GTS2(GTS2e)(not well tested at the moment) devices support.

Watchface for GTR2e

It was not easy to make such integration because there were no watcface editors  for these devices.  So at first, i would need to create an editor. After reverse-engineering a lot of standard watchfaces I’ve understood the watcface format and  made a watcface packer/unpacker and watcface editor for the second generation amazfit devices. The editor  was shared here https://amazfitwatchfaces.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1798 .   After some time, SashaCX75 made a GUI for the editor https://amazfitwatchfaces.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1888

So now people can easily create their own custom watchfaces for these devices. 

To create watcfaces for these devices i actively used the new features available on the second generation devices (system fonts and dynamical object rendering). By using these features i achieved super fast watcface uploading, which takes seconds. The watcface uploading almost not noticeable now. 

The watcface for GTR2(2e) also support AOD(Always on Display) feature which can be enabled on the watch settings. This feature allows you to always display your glucose data on the watch screen. 

By default, these watches have a vibration that happens after every watch face uploading (like it was on the GTR and GTS) but luckily, on the second watch generation, the vendor made an option that allows disabling this vibration. Everything you need to do is to open Settings menu on your watch. then go to Vibration and disable System vibration option.

Note

When you activate workout on the device, it is impossible to update watcface on the watch.

Amazfit GTR42 support

As a bonus was added Amazfit GTR42 support. But this device has the same disadvantages as GTR47. It has a slow watcface uploading time (about 15 seconds) and there is no way to disable vibration after watcface uploading.

Watchface for GTR42mm

The xdrip configuration remains the same as for other Amazfit devices, see my article on the blog . 

As always, thanks to everyone who supported this project.

        1. Feel free to support Artem on his Patreon account, perhaps that speeds up the development. But asking a developer who does all of this 4 free in his private time about the due date, is perhaps a little bit rude. Dont rush him, hits done when its done.

  4. Hi looking for a tester with an GTR 2e to test a different watchface.
    You would have to insert these 3 files into the xdrip folder and enable custom watchface in xdrip settings.
    https://github.com/twinko/GTR-2-WF-Xdrip-EN/tree/main/01-WF-MD225-Version3-xdrip-ready
    Watchface should look something like this: https://github.com/twinko/GTR-2-WF-Xdrip-EN/blob/main/01-WF-MD225-Version2/Preview3.gif

    Be aware, i didnt received my watch yet, so it was never tested before. It could result in a reset of the watch/xdrip or worse (even though i doubt that). And this watchface is ONLY for GTR 2e!

    Things that im interested in:
    1. how long does it take for the watchface to apply (need the exact seconds).
    2. a picture would be great, because i had some trouble with the alignment of some information.

    You can post your feedback here:

            As I am new on Amazfit (was on Wear OS before my Ticwatch Pro died in sea), I am disapointed that alerts from xdrip (as notification) are not managable (no alert is managable, they are just static), i mean I can’t mute(or confirm) the alert (high/low glucose) as it was possible from WearOS. Is there any solution?

          If you have trouble getting your Blood Glucose under control, sell your T-rex and buy one of the other supported devices (either by artem or xdrip). Moreover you should talk to a specialist. The watch alone wont solve your problem.

          Regards.

    1. Hi, yep, at the moment there no way to disable it, it is automatically initializing if there no graph item. I’ll change this behaviour so it would be possible to disable graph by removing “graph” item. Meanwhile you can try to set xy position for graph so it would points to the position outside of the canvas.

    Great work. What a star. I have activated (Sync settings/be Master for followers) on my sons S9 so I could follow. It linked up and I could follow on my phone. But it then stopped sending to the Amazfit band5 that went back to the standard watch face. Do I need to change any other settings to have both working? Ver. 0.5.3 (31.08.21).
