How to download and install Amazfit on PC and MAC

Android‘s app ecosystem has proven to be versatile and developer friendly after a bit of a slow start. You are free to develop an app for Android and publish it to the Play Store with just a few basic restrictions. This has led to a plethora of really cool Android apps, some of which aren’t available on iOS or other platforms. Running Android apps typically requires an Android smartphone or tablet – obviously! – but what if you’re currently using iOS and want to try Android without actually getting an Android device?

Fortunately, with a little legwork, you can run Android apps on a regular old Windows PC. There are several ways to go about it, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Android Studio

A popular way to get Android apps running on a PC is through the Android emulator released by Google as part of the official Android Studio. The emulator can be used to create virtual devices running any version of Android you want with different resolutions and hardware configurations. The first downside to this process is the somewhat complicated setup process.

You’ll need to grab the installer from Google’s site and run through the setup process to download the platforms you want – probably whatever the most recent version of Android happens to be at the time ( 7.1 at the time of publication). Google has some preconfigured emulation options available in the menu for Nexus / Pixel devices, but you can also set the settings manually. Once you’ve booted up your virtual device, you’ll need to get apps installed, but the emulator is the stock open source version of Android OS – no Google apps included.

Since there is no Play Store, you have to do some file management. Take the APK you want to install (be it Google’s app package or something else) and drop the file into the Tools folder in your SDK directory. Then use the command prompt while your AVD is running to enter (in this directory) adb install com.huami.watch.hmwatchmanager.apk. The app should be added to your virtual device’s app list.

The big advantage here is that the emulator is Android unmodified from source. The way apps render in the emulator will be the same as they render on devices, and almost everything should be running. It is ideal for testing app builds before uploading them to test devices. The biggest problem is that the emulator is slow enough that you won’t want to make a habit of running apps in it. Games are really out of the question too.

BlueStacks App Player

If you are looking to get multiple apps and games running on your computer with the minimum of effort, BlueStacks is your friend. The BlueStacks App Player bills itself as just a way to get apps to work, but it actually runs a full (heavily modified) version of Android behind the scenes. Not only that, but it has the built-in Play Store, so you have instant access to all of your purchased content. It actually adds an entry to your Google Play device list, masquerading as an Android device.

The BlueStacks client will load in a desktop window with different categories of applications like games, social, and so on. Clicking on an app or searching does something unexpected – it brings the full Play Store client as rendered on tablets. You can actually navigate this interface just like you would on a real Android device, making it clear that there is a lot more to BlueStacks than the front end “App Player”. In fact, you can install a third-party launcher like Nova or Apex from the Play Store and set it as default. The main screen in BlueStacks with the app categories is just a custom home screen, so replacing it makes BlueStacks almost feel like a regular Android device.

Having full access to the Play Store means you won’t be messing around with sideloading apps, and BlueStacks manages to run apps quite well. Most of the games are playable, but keep in mind that many of them will be difficult to use with a mouse. If your PC has a touchscreen, you can still use apps and games that rely on more than one touch input. BlueStacks can basically turn a Windows tablet PC into a part-time Android tablet. BlueStacks calls the technology that makes this possible “LayerCake” because Android apps run in a layer on top of Windows.

The only real problem with BlueStacks is that it is not running a standard Android version. Any changes the company makes to make apps work on a PC can cause issues – some apps don’t run or crash unexpectedly. This custom environment is also of little value as a development tool, as there is no guarantee that things will look the same on BlueStacks as they might on a real Android device without all the back-end modifications. It’s also a freemium service with a $ 2 pro subscription, or you can install a few sponsored apps.

Ports PC Android

If you don’t mind a bit more hassle, you can have a smoother Android app experience by installing a modified version of the OS on your PC. There are a few ports of Android that will run on desktop COMPUTERS, but not all systems will be able to run them properly. The two main choices for a full Android install on PC are Android-x86 project and Remix OS (pictured above), which is x86-based. There is also an “app player” version of Remix that runs in Windows, but I have found it to be extremely finicky.

Neither is in pristine condition, but Remix OS is a bit more fleshed out. Remix requires at least 2GB of RAM and a 2GHz dual-core processor, but practically you’ll need more than that for good performance. The user interface is not in stock Android – it’s based on code from the x86 project, but has been tweaked for a more desktop-like experience. It might actually be preferable, however. You can either install it on top of Windows, but that’s not the best idea. The smartest way would be to create a separate hard drive partition and install Android in it. The Remix installer will help you do that.

If you don’t want to install Android on your PC, you can try running one of these operating systems in VirtualBox, which should be a bit faster than the official Android emulator. It probably won’t be good enough for gaming yet, but most apps should install and run fine (BlueStacks is faster on this). There’s no Google Play integration when you install Android ports, but sideloading Play Services is pretty straightforward with Remix.

Watch Faces & Amazfit pour PC Windows

Instructions d’installation

Watch Faces & Amazfit can be used on any device running Android 2.3 and later. You can also install and run this app on your computer using an Android emulator. Here’s how to do it:

Install Watch Faces & Amazfit on your computer (Windows PC, laptop, Mac, etc.)

You can run Android apps on your computer using an Android emulator. There are countless Android emulators, but in this tutorial we are using BlueStacks. This application is available for Mac and Windows.

Step 1: Installation

Installing BlueStacks is a very straightforward process. All you need to do is download the program from the BlueStacks webpage and run the file (https://www.bluestacks.com). The installation file is quite large and the installation may take some time.

Once the initial installation is complete, opening the program does not take more than a few seconds. Once opened, you will be asked to sign in using a Google account, as is the case with any Android smartphone or tablet.

During the installation process, you may encounter error messages such as “Hardware acceleration is not available on your system” or “This host supports Intel VT-x, but it is disabled”. Enabling hardware acceleration features helps virtualization applications run smoother and much faster. Apps like BlueStacks run virtually a full operating system on your current system.

Step 2: Install Watch Faces & Amazfit APK

If you haven’t installed any other programs associated with the APK file type, BlueStacks will automatically open APK files. Double click on the file to launch BlueStacks and install the application. You can also drag and drop the APK file onto the BlueStacks home screen. Confirm that you want to install the app, and it will appear on your BlueStacks home screen after installation.

And There you go ! Now you have successfully installed Watch Faces & Amazfit on your computer using BlueStacks.
