Smartwatch sync app
@magnargj Today I succeeded connectin with my Xiaomi Mi A2 for the first time. I have no idea what has changed. It was with firmware 1.4. With the pinephone (siglo) I did not succeed today.
In InfiniTime 1.7.0 the characteristic to sync the step count was added.
The app is now capable of syncing steps:
- At every sync the app will sync the steps that were added since the last sync
- If the amount of steps is smaller than the currently saved ones, it will sync the total amount of steps, as InfiniTime does not retain the steps after a reboot.
Also the app will now not sync empty values or "0".
You might have to sync twice after updating the app to first update the device revision, as the app will now check if a characteristic works for the installed firmware version.
@jiho Sorry not been around much for the last week or so. Do you mean your app will now sync steps or that the last Infinitime version now syncs steps. Also have there been updates to your app, if so do you have the link?
@lakotaubp Don't worry, I wasn't around for a long time either.
I mean both. Infinitime now lets you sync the step count and the app will also do it.
Take the latest build from here: https://gitlab.com/jiiho/uwatch/-/jobs/1851724064/artifacts/download?file_type=archive

@jiho Thanks will give it a go.
Edit: All works, I now have steps. Like the app icon too. Great wirk thanks
@jiho Was just wondering how this was developing and if it was close to being in the OpenStore. Thanks
@lakotaubp Sorry for the late reply. (And missing news in general)
To be honest I ran into some problems with the current version of bluez.
Pin verification will be made mandatory in Infinitime at some point. As this functionality is already included in the System Settings, I wanted to use it, to pair and verify the watch and then use it in the app. That would also provide an easy way to automatically connect to the watch. Gatttool however is not able to enter existing bluetooth connections and the implemented version of bluez is not able to handle GATT very well or at all (never actually got it to do what I want).
So to work around some things, I started to rethink the backend and am currently working on that.
Also I want to see what I can do with the upcoming 20.04 base as hopefully the bluez version will be able to handle the requests way better.
@jiho Thanks for the update and work.
@jiho The link is 404ing is there a fix coming https://gitlab.com/jiiho/uwatch/-/jobs/1851724064/artifacts/download?file_type=archive Thanks
You can find the latest builds here: https://gitlab.com/jiiho1/uwatch/-/pipelines
The latest build (a few minutes ago) should be one last one you already have (with clickable 7 build).
A lot more changes are currently happening in the branch "movetojs", however not everything is working in there yet.
@jiho Thank you for the info
Hi, I would try Uwatch, but I can't find how to install it.
Someone can give some tips? please?

I think you have to download source files and build the click yourself. Then you can install click using UTTT.
I searched a bit the git given above for a click but didn't find any.
You'll be able to download a ZIP file that contains the click package. You can install it either with UTTT or opening it with the Open Store.
Beware however... I am currently rewriting a huge part of the backand in 'movetojs'. So make sure to download the artifact from 'main', because some things are not yet working in 'movetojs'.
If needed I can also build a package for you.

Maybe you could publish a beta on open-store if it's in beta state ?
@keneda It's difficult to define what the beta state is... How much should the app be able to do to be understood to be in beta.
But besides that, I haven't implemented an appropriate error management yet.

@jiho From what I have seen for a beta it works Ok steps and heart rate wise with the PineTime. Battery % is a little off and data transfer is a bit slow on my OP5 quicker with the Pixel 3a but then the PineTime is still being worked on too.
Once your reasonably happy I would go for it, you could tinker around with it for ages and still not be 100% happy with the result. The more downloads hopefully the more more feed back leading to quicker updates. TELEports is still beta in the Opentore and Dekko is experimental. Just clearly state it's a Beta and what future updates will bring and go for it.
thanks a lot I'll ty this app
Install is ok thanks, but it seems that synch doesn't work with xiaomi mi watch lite.
perhaps this watch can't synchronize?
@lakotaubp Thanks for the advice. You are right, it might be a good idea to submit the app, when I think it is ready as a beta.
