Dear Sirs,

my Omate Truesmart's screen froze completely at the settings screen after I tried to reenable bluetooth. Now the screen is on and the buttons are not working (tried holding them for a minute) so I cannot power it off in any meaningful way. I have no tiny screwdrivers here (on vacations).

Does anyone know any way to shut down this device without dismantling it?

Or do I have to wait for the battery to discharge completely?

I have seen such absurd situation on no other device yet so far..

All best.

So how did it go? Battery empty and now up and running again?

I had the same with my device. I did had the tiny screwdriver at hand and removed the battery. Now the back lid won't fully close...

Exactly, the ghost left the watch after a few hours, and now it works again.
I thought to put it on the sun to overheat the CPU and trigger the reboot, but then - it might never wake up :P

So, the bottom line is - always carry watchmaker's tools in your pocket!

Cheers

Nah, leave the lid as long as you can. Like I said, mine won't fully close now. One drop of water in the wrong place and it's is bye bye TS.
