Our small group of Gadgetbridge contributors has been very busy in the past several weeks and the changelog of this new release really shows it. Today, Gadgetbridge is bringing support for some new devices together with features, bug fixes and improvements to existing devices and the app itself.
Initial support for Mi Band 7, for devices that use Binary Sensor Service and for Fossil/Skagen Hybrid HR 38mm watches
Mi Band 7 has been out and José Rebelo has worked hard to bring initial support for this new smart band. The device support is at the moment still somewhat limited but it is getting better over time. See this wiki page for details about currently supported features and also for list of known issues.
And last but not least, hackoder (thank you very much!) has brought in support for yet another group of Fossil/Skagen Hybrid HR 38mm watches.
In this release we have fixed few issues related to automatic re-connection. This is related to all devices supported by Gadgetbridge.
Amazfit Bip U fitness tracking with GPS data from the phone has been tested and is now enabled. Amazfit Neo and Mi Band 4 device implementations have received wave of adjustments and improvements.
Fossil Hybrid HR widgets (complications) can now be toggled with a physical button and can also have circle background.
Bangle.js can now start Android Activities via Android Intents.
InfiniTime for PineTime should handle step fetching and counting a bit better from now on.
If you are paying attention to your daily step goals, the Steps per month screen now provides an icon to open Steps Streaks - a new screen that allows you to see your current and longest series of days without interruption with the daily steps goal reached, as well as your total achievement rate. See more details in our wiki.
For all user-facing changes since the previous blog post, check the following list :)
