Smartwatch sync app
@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
@lakotaubp Sorry, I moved to project to a group in GitLab (to have all UT apps in the same place).
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.
@phiibuntu You can download build artifacts from here: https://gitlab.com/jiiho1/uwatch/-/pipelines
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.
@phiibuntu Sorry, I don't know. The app itself uses Bluetooth Low Energy to sync the data. So the watch needs to support this.
I've implemented default values that are based on the official documentation. So as long as a watch uses BLE with these values, SOME data can be synced.
If that's not the case but the watch uses BLE then the BLE GATT values need to be added to the app.

New UT user here. I've managed to install from the latest artifact on gitlab (which wasn't easy, as I didn't know how to install those click files!). Now I'm stuck on pairing the device. When I connect to the device from uwatch I see 6 digits on my watch and I get a prompt on the phone.
The obvious thing to do do is then to enter the numbers and continue. I can enter the numbers fine, but I cannot continue after. None of the buttons work, not even the cancel. After a while it seems to time out and then gives an error that it's unable to pair.
I'm running the stable version of UT and InfiniTime 1.10.0. Am I doing something wrong?
