Xiaomi Huami Amazfit BIP not found
« on: June 07, 2020, 19:28:02 »
I try to connect to my Xiaomi Huami Amazfit BIP smartwatch to Locus to track heartrate data together with the route in the gpx data.
Unfortunately, locus does not find the watch, although the watch is paired over bluetooth and can be accessed from the MiFit app.
With the Xiaomi Huami Amazfit Cor Smartband, connection works fine, but the more featured Amazfit BIP does not occur in the device selection within locus.

Hello,
I made a quick search if these watches even allow this, and based on posts I read (for example this one), it is not technically supported. So simply: these watches can't broadcast HR values to other apps over standard mechanism as other HR monitors.

The list of supported HR devices contains items tested by Locus users, not by us. The list is without any warranty, only based on what users announce to us.
