Microphone... Does it just not work for standalone use?

Yes, you can see it, if its there, by shining a bright light into that pinhole from the outside, but it's hard to tell if what you are seeing is really the flat plastic seal that is supposed to be there at the very back end, a mm or two inside, or if it is really blocking debris !

You don't want to damage that real seal ! Its all the way through the body at the back, though.

In my case, the misapplied white sealant had pretty nearly filled the pinhole to the outer edge. It came out as a little mm long plug, using a needle and tweezers.YMMV...

Yeah ok I've definitely got nothing of the sort then from observing the outside. Looks like it's more a QA issue with the build quality. Also I almost had a minor heart attack I scrapped the screen face of my watch along a metal frame. I thought sh*t it's scratched it. Went to look at screen in the light NOTHING. Still perfect so I'm glad to report the Sapphire Glass does it's job. Haven't worn a watch in years I got to remember not to walk too close to walls etc!

Thanks trent999, after cleaning out the mic pinhole on my truesmart the mic actually works pretty good now.

The Omate Truesmart project in theory was a terrific idea, and had it implemented, marketed, produced under quality control, and supported the product I believe it could have been the beginning of good things to come for Omate.

But instead Omate simply bungled badly their first project to the point I think it's reputation is so damaged Omate will simply fade into the sunset. Such a shame.

Had it not been for the support of all the individual xda developers hours of thankless support of this device most of the truesmarts would be now residing in landfills.

Again thanks trent999 and a BIG SHOUT OUT THANK YOU to everyone at xda who supported this project.
