I updated and having issues with upper and lower buttons. When watch is awake pushing upper button takes me to last watch screen to the right, not as previously one by one. Pushing lower button doesn`t work at all. On 2.3.7. everything worked fine. I tried unpair and pair again, but the same problem is still present. Help someone?

- Added news notification support for Korean and Thai
- Added "3 data big words" - 3 data fields display mode for sports interface
- Added outdoor swimming automatic segmentation settings
- Added "Sports Reminder" - can be found at:
Settings on the watch > General > Sports Reminder
1. Sports start reminder: automatically recognize the running and walking mode after opening, will remind the corresponding sports mode after 5 minutes of activity, and save the official data before;
2. End of motion reminder: automatically recognizes the end state of running and walking after opening, reminds the end after 10 minutes of the end of the activity and automatically pauses the movement.
- Added music playback control function during sports (the watch will display the control screen on the last screen after the music is played)
- Optimize motion center rate accuracy
- Optimize connection stability for iOS devices
- Optimize emoji expression display (temporarily does not support non-standard emoji expressions, such as partial expressions of WeChat)
- Optimize the mileage display after the end of swimming
- Watch button functionality changes:
1. When using daily functions;
a. Short press on the upper button to return to the dial directly on any interface, press the list of applications on the dial interface;
b. Short middle button functionality unchanged;
c. Lower button press to change to the previous layer interface on any interface. If the current tab is at the widgets layer, return directly to the dial.

2. After unlocking in sports
a. Press upper button to alter motion;
b. Middle button short press is for selection;
c. Short press the button to change the motion control option. The option can be cycled.
- Widget layout adjustments
1. The right side of the dial becomes only up to two widgets, and the rest are placed in the watch application list (need to wait for the latest App push);
2. The “sports record” on the left side of the dial is moved into the watch application list.

- Optimized in motion interface
1. Increase the motion control interface in the interface during the movement, and slide to the right by sliding in the movement;
2. After pausing, support to switch to other motion data interface by sliding.
- Repairing abnormal work problems that may occur with watches in low temperature environments
- Fix the problem of swimming to calculate the number of steps
- Fixed some translation errors in English, French, and Italian
- Bug fixes

Don't update to this version. The new button functions seem to be really crappy.

I updated and hate it! Several good new options, but new buttons concept is awful!

I wouldn't say it's crappy, just something to get used to. If button layout were like that from the start you wouldn't even think about it. The change is just fine although I would like if they could be remapped or better yet remapped depending on the app.

But another issue in this version for me is that apk watchfaces do not work for me in sleep mode. It just shows blank screen. Anyone with this issue?

I just updated but it gives me problems with the watchface in standby of greatfit.
When unlocked the greatfit watchface is working but when locked the original or last selected watchface is showing.
Anyone got a fix?

Before the button layout was easy and effective. Upper and lower button for cycling thougth lists. Long press upper button for back. Now touchscreen has to be used. Buttons are almost useless. For Stratosfied I found a way to undo the new button layout. https://forum.xda-developers.com/sma...3758506/page84 But it needs temporary root. How to get this? I already saw a lot of complains about the new button layout here and in Chinese forum. I should have read the update log completely before updating...

Yeah, blank screen was showing to me in sleep mode when watch was restarted with non working apk watchface selected. But yes, some apk watchfaces (not all) also don't work for me in sleep mode anymore and is showing as you said last selected working watchface when in sleep mode or some other.
There is still Amazfit phone app that needs to be updated to reflect these firmware changes but nothing should change anyway.

On latest firmwares, US and CN, all watchfaces based on GreatFit don't work on standby mode and they need an update.

To disable the new key mapping, check this if you have unlocked bootloader: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sma...e-key-t3890560

Yup. Same problem here. None of the APK watchfaces seems to be working now, and the buttons are pointless. 2.3.8. is the worse update ever. 2.3.7.0 was great, everything finally worked for me.
