Default [Q] "Start Timer" Command Not working?

Guys,

When I tell my G Watch to "start a timer for x minutes" it drops me back to the menu to pick an alarm time (with no relevance on the time its focussed on.)

I'm using a Galaxy Nexus with it at the moment, because my N5 is with LG for a repair, so is anyone else seeing this? Is it possibly because of the Galaxy Nexus not setting the timer properly (like the old way it would try and set an alarm, not a timer, that was recently fixed on 4.4?)



Cheers,
Jay.

I've just tested this out and it seems to work for me. Not sure why it's not working for you.

This is a problem with mine also. Paired with HTC One S (Liberty S4 ROM). Very annoying. Setting an alarm works fine, and setting a timer by touch works also...

Glad its not just me! My Nexus 5 should be back with me today, so hopefully that will solve the problem, as I think its because this GNex hasn't had the updated way of setting timers from Voice commands.

I've found the same problem - unfortunately with a Nexus 5!

Running L-Preview - dunno if this causes any probs?

I also got a N5, but I have no problems with my watch whatsoever, but my Nexus is running KitKat 4.4.4 and not L, so yes that might be a problem.

I always use "set timer" instead of "start timer" (mostly "set timer for x minutes").
Works like a charm (Nexus 5) (Y)
