I created these utilities to help people complete some tasks faster/easier without having to resort to ADB or other methods. The purpose of these programs is to assist the user fine tune their watch & add functionality.

FEATURES

PACE Watch APP
* Display enabled Keyboards on watch
* Switch between Minuum Keyboard & Stock Huami
* Test typing keyboard area
* Control WiFi & Bluetooth


PACE Tuner Windows utility
* Check for ADB devices
* Install Minuum Keyboard on watch
Since I am not the author of the Minuum Keyboard I will not be including it in the package (sorry). You will need to search online (plenty of places to download it from) and download the APK.
Download Minuum-Wear.apk and place it in the same directory as the PACE Windows utility. Make sure the naming of the file is as exactly mentioned earlier in bold.
Click on the "Install Minuum" button in the Windows utility and wait for the install to complete.

* Display PACE watch data (device name & total km's ran)
* Display Watch and paired phone Bluetooth Information

Tweaks
* # Root required # Allow 3rd party software to be installed directly on the watch (you would need a file manager already installed on the watch)
* Toggle between show battery % screen while charging or the watchface (you may have to wake the screen once after making changes to see them)
* # Experimental # Enable find iPhone feature from watch (works by default on Android, so only use for iPhone users)
* # Experimental # Enable Haptic feedback (app needs to support this for it to work)
* Super Brightness - Sets watch to maximum allowed brightness. Manual 'L5' allows for a value of '180' in the settings. By enabling this option your setting will be '255' (maximum allowable).
* You can force restart your watch by double clicking on the PACE watch picture (typically bottom-right)
* Kill all ADB connections (in case Windows get confused or something)


I currently own and test the utilities on a Windows 7 (x64) based machine only and a PACE International version on stock firmware v1.3.6d

Frequently asked questions
Q: I am trying to launch the utility on the watch but I am getting errors/exceptions.
A: You have to use the Windows PACE Tuner utility to install the APK since it elevates privileges required for the app to run properly. If you try to simply sideload it it will fail!

Q: I have some great ideas or need more modifications - can you please do them asap?
A: Unfortunately for you I am not a 'proper' developer. I do this as a hobby on my (limited) spare time, so I can't commit to time or my abilities to be able to do what you imagine. Your ideas are of course welcome - I will do my best, but I will do it at my time.

Hi,

Very good job.
The option "Added Find iPhone feature (experimental) for similar functionality already enabled for Android" don't work for me.

I'm on PACEFied 1.2.51 and IOS 11.3 IPhone 6S.

An idea ?

Hi Eric,
Sorry mate - all I am doing is enabling some hidden functions in the watch.
1. I don't have an iPhone to test it with.
2. I am using stock PACE 1.3.6d International version

The option may not be there at all for PACEfied for all I know.

Since I can't test it myself I have marked it EXPERIMENTAL. I am waiting to hear back from another guy who is using an iPhone with stock ROM. If it doesn't work on his version either that means that it doesn't currently work and I will remove it from future releases until Huami properly integrate it.

Amaxfit Pace Tuner English ver Win10 install

Many many thanks for this :D installed the Pace Tuner onto the English rom 1.3.6d version using win10.
When first tried utility adb would not connect, but copied adb.exe and a couple of dll's into the Tuner folder and then adb connected fine to watch device.
Couple of minor issues:
1. The option to install "Minuum-Wear.apk" was grayed out and I have exact same named apk in Tuner folder.
2. Ticked the tweak to give super brightness but noticed no change.
Checked the brightness using: adb shell settings get system screen_brightness and value was 180.
I can always fix this with: adb shell settings put system screen_brightness 255
Main reason for install was the ability to toggle the wifi on/off. I installed the Xbrowser but because wifi is normally always off the browser was unable to load any data. The Tuner now gives me the option to toggle wifi on and then when I load Xbrowser and can browse web as necessary :cool:
