Hello,

It is time for me to move from MiBand1 to something new. Unfortunately there is no long lasting devices on the market and one like Amazfit Neo isn’t supported by Gadgetbrige.

Maybe someone already done research and estimate work needed to handle Amazfit Neo? Will it be possible to reuse existing Amazfit integration or it is totally new device?

thanks for great software!

I am not sure, but I think it would be easy.

There are about 5 new Huami devices a year, so getting them all is not easy but possible thanks to donations. I think we should buy one!

thanks for fast response. I will definitely donate.

Sorry for off topic. I just realize that. Amazfit Neo has anly beeper, and no vibration.
Is there smart band that lasts long on one charge and has vibrations for notification with good Gadgetbrige integration.

Oh, I did not want to suggest you have to donate, sorry :D

The Mi Bands all have good battery and Gadgetbridge integration. But starting from the Mi Band 4, you have to use the official app once to obtain a pairing key :(

If you also accept to wear a watch, the Amazfit Bip with about 6 weeks of battery and always on display is also a great choice. It also needs no pairing key and you can start right away with Gadgetbridge.

The Amazfit Bip S is a current model and has some improvements but also needs the pairing key unfortunately.

So if you absolutely do not want to use Mi Fit even once you shoud pick the Mi Band 3 or Amazfit Bip (original).

Hi, I’m interested on Amazfit Neo as well. I already bought one.

I don’t mind if doesn’t have vibration, but I’m looking forward to use Gadgetbridge instead of the official app.

I’ll be happy to donate as well :)
