Gadgetbridge 0.77.0 has been tagged (waiting for F-Droid to build), it marks the biggest release ever, in terms of changes and new device support.

Okay, that sounds great, but, honestly part of the reason is that we never had such a long time between releases. :)

First the list of new devices supported:

  • Amazfit: Balance, Active, Active edge (experimental)
  • FitPro: ColaCao 2021, ColaCao 2023
  • Sony Wena 3 (A watch band with an integrated smartwatch)
  • Femometer Vinca II (fertility thermometer)
  • Mijia LYWSD02MMC variant (epaper clock/thermometer/hygrometer)
  • Sony WF-1000XM5 (headphone, experimental)
  • Divoom Pixoo (LED Matrix, experimental)
  • Xiaomi Devices (experimental, see next paragraph)

Xiaomi? But we had already Xiaomi Mi Band support? Yes, thanks true but it seems that Huami(Amazfit) and Xiaomi which shared a common protocol since the Mi Band 2/Amazfit Bip time parted ways. While the Xiaomi Smart Band ("Mi Band") series continued to be Huami devices, there were some confusing devices like the "Mi Band 4C" which were incompatible with the regular Mi Band/Huami protocol. Also Xiaomi branded smart watches were never compatible with the protocol we observed with Huami/Amazfit devices. Gadgetbridge never supported those device. Until... now.

When the latest Mi Band 8 was released as the first mainstream Mi Band which uses the new protocol, we realized that it is really time to finally tackle that. Our journey opened the door for a lot of new devices, of which a few are supported now - although in an experimental state. So your millage may vary. The first round of seven devices we were able to get working are: Mi Band 7 Pro, Mi Band 8, Mi Watch Lite, Mi Watch Color Sport, Remi Smart Band 2, Redmi Watch 3 Active, Xiaomi Watch S1 Active. More will follow.

Another exciting class of devices are the Divoom devices. Right now we only support the Pixoo, but support for others should be doable. Those devices are RGB (16x16 pixel or more) matrices which can display animations, static images, weather and notifications. Gadgetbridge support is incomplete, right now only setting the time and date, weather conditions and displaying the firmware-included notification icons works. Support for more features will come in the near future.

As usual there are also a ton of new features and fixes for existing devices in the ChangeLog. One thing we would like to highlight (because it is just so cool) is support for fullscreen graphical OsmAnd navigation notifications on the Fossil/Skagen Hybrid HR. This is something the official app cannot do, and which we archived by creating our own on-device watch app which in bundled with Gadgetbridge and can be installed though the App manager. Sometimes Gadgetbridge not only protects your privacy, it enables you do do more.

For a complete list, as always, please refer the the Changelog, which list all user facing changes since the last release

Thank you for your continuous support, and we hope you will like Gadgetbridge 0.77.0!

Merry Christmas, and a happy new year from the Gadgebridge team :)
