Your issue is:
Reconnection is still unreliable, and silent disconnect is still here. Sometimes the BT icon on the watch will show that it's not connected, sometimes not, everything looks normal, GB always displays "connected" state, but finally I find, that I don't get any new notifications for a long time. Disconnecting and connecting in GB "fixes" the problem (untill the next silent disconnect).
Problem usually appears after a day or two of usage, since a fresh Gadgetbridge installation.
Your wearable device is:
Amazfit BIP, latest FW (problem also exists with with previous FW and previous GB releases)
Your android version is:
8.1 (but same for 5.0)
Your Gadgetbridge version is:
0.31.1 (but same for all previous GB releases)
Without a reliable connection/reconnection, this software is not worth much, and I don't see anything regarding this problem in recent Changelogs. Does it mean this serious problem will never be addressed?
I think it's time to start surveying people about these dis/reconnection issues that seem to be prevalent.
What mobile device are you using to sync your Amazfit BIP?
I catched this issue when my Amazfit Bip was paired with Gadgetbridge, but was unpaired with Android bluetooth settings. Try to pair your Amazfit Bip both with Android bluetooth settings and Gadgetbridge. This resolves this issue for me.
No, the problem still persists in 0.41.1 (installed from F-Droid). Android 9, Moto G7 Power, Amazfit Bip fw 22.214.171.124, hw 0.11.19.5. Usually disconnects when I go out of range and then sits indefinitely long in "Connecting" state. Long tap to disconnect and then short tap to connect makes the app connect. The bluetooth icon on the watch indicates there is a connection and in BT settings the device is also visible.
I tried to reproduce it artificially at home and it reconnected fine. At work it gets stuck when I go to another room for a while and then back. I'll try it this Monday then but from what I remember there was just nothing in the log after GB said it tries to reconnect.
Ok, GB is stuck on "Fetching activity data" after I went away and returned back after ~5 minutes. Bip showed no BT connection and when I pressed the button on the watch it apparently got connected but GB didn't. There's a lot of spam about "Ignore notification" so it's a bit hard to find the relevant part of the log.
I see there's an NPE that's probably caused this but in my original issue it was stuck on "Connecting" (and there was nothing interesting in the log) so it might be something different. I'll keep watching it.
For the record, after updating to 0.42.0 I don't have this issue anymore. I often lose connection at work due to going out of range and when I'm back it reconnects quickly.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
