Hi,
Anyone know how I can get the watch face on when I'm wearing it so that it looks like I'm wearing a watch instead of a blank screen. Basically keeping the time on at all time. I've tried everything and can't figure it out. Any pointers on the OwatchON would be great as well. I've tried configuring it but I must be doing something wrong.

The TS and other x201 smartwatches were never designed to have the screen left on all the time. Doing so will give you about 6hrs of battery at best from my estimates.

Like Loki said, you really don't want the screen on all day. Try this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....adl.appshaker It works nicely and can be tuned to turn your watch on with just a flick of the wrist.

Isn't that what OwatchON is supposed to do?( haven't actually used my watch or any of the apps yet to know if they actually work as intended)

I tried Owatchon but apparently it isn't working. The Shake app does work well and has nice options.

Thanks for this tip! Hope it doesn't drain the battery as yesterday I didn't have Bluetooth or WiFi on yesterday for nearly 14 hours on the road. It was only down 90 percent which is I think its great.

Just found that app. I'm using it on my cell now. I love it! It's been a while since I've been super excited about an app!
Gravity Screen - On/Off

It could be helpful with the TrueSmart but I'm not sure if I love it on a watch.

Anyone know why watchON doesn't seem to run at all? (I'm running Imperium Operative)

Probably because your sensors are not working. Have you checked they are working?

Yeah, I see the sensors working properly in the "wakeup position" dialogue... any other thoughts?
