To be honest when I put the watch after using it during the day it still was showing 70% battery remaining but after I left it with BT off over the night
I pick it up in the morning and battery was flat.

Do any of You guys heard about some problems with that watch during charging process? After unboxing, battery on my watch was almost dead, so i started to charge it, and after about 30 minutes it started showing just plain white image on its lcd. Do You thinks its possible to get it working again?

It Works
So I just got mine in today. I had to use a file manager to find the apk after it downloaded. For some reason it did not simply install the apk.

After getting everything going and ignoring certain notifications, I ran a few tests.
Everything sounds great and is working fine. The build quality is rather surprisingly nice. (nice for $60)

I find it annoying that I have to press my BT button after I answer a call, but that isn't so bad.
I can control my music, but I have to plug in my headset after activating it on my watch to avoid the music coming from the handset.
It has its quirks, but overall it is worth the 60 for a new toy to play with for a while until I decide to shell out a couple hunnid for a high end product.
I didn't expect much of the display, and I think it works well enough.
Another bad thing is that I have sometimes lost connection. This was at first, and seems to be staying connected for the last hour.
It looks decent on the wrist. The wristband isn't so bad. I may just get a different cheap leather or metal one to replace it.

edit: the 2nd file i assume is english/chinese only language

edit 2: they also sent me a message through aliexpress

"PLS note if you upgraded then you can not change it back. PLS consider it before upgrade"

and

"The upgrade will have more better UI and the function of backlight adjust as well as more languages for choice."

don't expect too much from this update

menu icons are now in color, no new clock faces

but bluetooth audio is still a problem, defaults to the watch always, that's not gonna work for me

besides, decent notification support is much more important to me and as the bt notifier app hasn't been updated...

M28_khr_cn1_v015
Hi,

Does anybody have firmware which version is "M28_KHR_CN1_V015", If YES, could you please share it to us. This is better than the others, because it has got Answer, Reject button and keyboard.

Hi at all.

At my uwatch, the touchscreen works anormal from One Day to the other. I can't use it anymore. The back Button opens speaker loudness. And to aim the menu Button is nearly impossible.

Resetting the watch and Firmware upgrade had no effect.

Can anyone help me?

On their site I found a download called "source." Inside that, several files that when viewed with Notepad++ appear to be what we're looking for. Going to see if I can make edits to the firmware through those. My personal list of things I'd like to work on. (these all might be pipe dreams)

* Disable watch face timeout. Go with low power always on watch face
* Disable music playing through watch speaker while retaining ability to control music on the phone
* Change kilometers to miles on pedometer for US users
* Add Dictionary.com functionality
* Add ability to send sms messages through either voice, or a carousel letter / number / symbol system similar to the main menu of the Kindle Fire series
* Add rudimentary Wolfram Alpha app. I love the thought of asking my watch "what are all the planes I can see in the sky right now?"
* Add either gesture (probably not) or quadrant touch control to the main watch screen. Think like a "quick app start" So upper left corner might be phone, upper right might be camera, lower left music, lower right pedometer, for example.
* Some type of Bluetooth "walkie talkie" functionality. I go on a lot of bicycle rides, and always thought it would be cool to have a BT walkie talkie for anyone else I might be on a ride with.

Again, some, a lot, or all of these might be wishful thinking.
