- unless you have a Chinese phone number. I’ll explain why:
First things first, the inHealth app for the inWatch Pi was promised to release on October 1. No app available on October 1. Fast-forwarding to October 13, the inHealth app was released (yes, that’s 13 days too late) and I couldn’t wait to try it. After a very slow download (6,5kbps), I installed the app on my MX4. Everything in Chinese. Ok, not such a big problem. I spent 2-3 hours translating the app to English.
After packing up the APK and signing it I was delighted to try it on my MX4. After installation everything looked like it should - in English. Great! Of course I wanted to see the app in its full glory, so I went on to register an account. First step: “Please enter your phone number”. So naturally, I entered my phone number. “Error”. I tried different combinations, with and without country code, but nothing would work.
So there you have it. A cool accessory useless for people outside of China. Of course I hope inWatch replies to this thread with the great news that they’ve added international support to their inHealth app. But I consider that chance very small, which means for now I recommend to cancel your inWatch Pi order straightaway.
P.S. Here you have my translated version of inHealth, in case anybody wants it.
