Huawei Honor band 4 unstable re-connection


Hello,
I recently bought a Honor band 4. The product itself looks and works fine but few things really disappoint me.

  • When I go out of the phone Bluetooth range it never reconnect again when back in, how can I fix this? Right now I need to open the app and wait minutes looking at the connecting text
  • Why is not possible to set the display to switch on automatically when a message arrives?
  • When I open a message there is no way t go back to the others, I always need to quit and open messages again (which opens quite slowly
  • It looks like the band is not synced with the phone book, when i receive a call from a contact of mine the device shows the number but not the name, can I fix this?
Thanks

Hi Schembri23,

Sorry for the late reply,
For the re-connection issue you will have to inquire with Samsung since the S8+ has a proprietary battery manager that is interfering with the re-connection.
The band itself may have limited functionality with the S8+ but I will forward this to R&D for further improvements with future firmware.
If you can please pm me with the S/N of the device to facilitate them, I would really appreciate it.

Best wishes,
Max

Hi Schembri23,

May i ask what firmware you are running on the band?
Also to what device you are paired with and the current app version of Huawei Health?

Looking forward to your reply,

I've got the same issue. Bluetooth is getting disconnected by itself(Don't know the reason coz I'm not even moving far from it). And it's not reconnecting automatically. I need to open the app for connection. I'm using redmi note 4 and my band and app are on latest versions.
For me too same problem Iphone 6s

Hi @Suraj, @edubrasil,

If you could PM me with the Serial Number of the Honor Band 4 and the mobile phone you are connecting it to I will be able to look further into this matter.

Best regards,
Max
Doesn't also reconnect on Xiaomi Mi 6 (MIUI Global 10.2 Stable, Android 8.0.0). It reconnects only if I switch on and off airplane mode and manually tap "reconnect" in Health app. Firmware version is 1.0.10.40.

Hi there,
I am from Germany and I am new to this community.
I have an Oneplus 6 and have the same Problem.
When I leave the bluetooth area the connection is lost to the honor magic watch. Normal so far.
But when I come back near the mobile it reconnetes not. Only when the screen of the mobile is turned on.
Maybe a bluetooth or location setting?

I thought it is a problem with my mobile, but as this happens to multiple devices I think it could also be caused by the health app.

So I wanted to ask you all: is there meanwhile solution or workaround?
Thanks.
Hi there,

I did a big investigation in the log files of my mobile.
App Developers have to allow the app to register the filtered BLEScan, then it can scan the watch in screen-off.

PLEASE, help us!!!!

Thank you.
Hi, Max.
I am using Honor Band 4 and pair it with Samsung S9+. I have the same problem. When I go out of the phone Bluetooth range, it never reconnect automatically when back in. I need to open the Huawei Health app and tap associate and close the app as soon as soon as possible to make the connection established (The bluetooth icon on the band faces will shining if the bluetooth connection is established). If I wait a few seconds after I tap associate, the bluetooth connection always failed to established. Please fix this problem. I have PM you the serial number. Thank you.
@drazen hey, same phone and problem as yours here. Do you know how to allow the app to register the filtered BLEScan on OP6?
@simaofreire
we can not activate it ourself. The App developer of the app has to do this.
I have written an eMail but i did not get an answer.
I hope they read it and change it in the app.
@drazen
thats a shame, such a good band, but so few updates.
hope they read you request too. 😕
I am having same issue on Redmi Note 7 device
Same problem . One Plus 6 . Can anyone confirm that the message/problem was received and someone started to work on it ?

Hello,
I have recently bought Honor band 4. I am also feeling problem related to its Auto connectivity. I have paired it with Samsung Galaxy A30 smart phone. When I go out of the phone Bluetooth range it never reconnect again Automatically. When i come back in, I need to Open the Health app and try to manually reconnect it after several attempts. How can I fix this?
Right now its "Find Phone" feature is useless for me as my phone and band might not be connected to each other after coming back in the range.
Android version: 9.0 Pie
Band S/N # K2BGA19315004277
Firmware: 1.0.10.42

Your response in this regard will be much appreciated.
