MiBand 3 and React Native (Part One)

See the original posting on DZone Python

Recently, I decided to test an idea in practice where Xiaomi MiBand 3 can be used by a simple mobile application based on a React-Native framework. My task was simple: teach a mobile app to communicate with MiBand 3 and make it get data, such as heart rate and connection-bond level, from MiBand 3.

This article describes the dev environment setup for Android. I am not going to forget about iOS and will share my findings later in the next article. If you want to try a solution in practice, please check here.
