Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Heart Rate Monitor Data Problem

Hi there. I can't get working my new Xiaomi Smart Band 7 (BLE 5.2) Heart Rate Monitor with Locus 4.10. Device is connected but no valid data nor battery status. Tried both "Heart rate monitor" and "Mi Band" option without success. The older Xiaomi Smart Band 5 (BLE 5.0) works flawlessly. Any ideas? Thanks!

So the Mi Band 7 connects to Locus 4.11 without problem. But no data. Different protocol probably?

@Menion What does it mean the request is "Not processed"? Thanks.

Hi guys, sorry for the delay in my answer.

I do not have this device on the table so let's experiment a little bit. If anyone has a moment, please install an app called Light Blue from Google Play. After start, tap on the "Connect" button next to your Smart Band 7 device. Once connected, in the top three-dot menu is a "Log" entry so use it. And here simply share the log as plain text with me here. Thanks.

Hi guys,

this is really interesting. Thanks both for the logs. They show that the MiBand provide necessary information so Locus Map should connect and read HR data correctly. Based on your screenshots, seems that Locus Map really connects, but no data are comming.

Did you tried any other app that is able to read HR from these belts? I do not know any as I do no use MiBand, but I'm sure there will exists. I'm asking because it looks to me more as some problem in setup of MiBand itself. In some internal settings if HR should be provided to 3rd party apps or not. Maybe some settings in the Xiaomi app on the phone itself?

There is an option for Heart Rate Activity Sharing, it's turned on, but doesn't seem to give any data out... Maybe it's a bug in the Zepp Life app or in the Mi Band 7 firmware. I'll report it to Xiaomi too.

Thanks for checking. It would be really useful to test this with any other app that reads basic HR values from any BT device. Just to be sure, it really isn't problem in the Locus Map. Thanks!
