The MyBasis Band B1 has finally released their “android” app. Unfortunately they only seem to allow you to install them on the following Samsung devices:

Samsung Galaxy SIV
Samsung Galaxy SIII
Samsung Galaxy SIII
Samsung Galaxy SII
Samsung Note II
Samsung Note

No support for either my Nexus 4 or Nexus 7.

Despite this, I was finally able to install it on both of my devices. To install it, you can try to get the .apk file from someone who has installed it.

The way I was able to install it, was by installing an app I found on xda-developers called Market-Helper.

Once installed, you can open it up and select “Phone” and “Samsung Galaxy S3″ under device option. Click Activate.

Once this is done, open the play store (you might have to clear the market cache) find the app and install it. I had to install it by going to the google play store on on my laptop at http://play.google.com because it would not find it in the app store on the phone. This time it showed I had a compatible device “Samsung GT-I9300″

This installed it on my Nexus 4 and I did the same process to get it on my Nexus 7 and it is now syncing over Bluetooth without any problems.

I assume this should also work for other devices. Drop a comment if you have any questions and if this worked for your device.
