I recently purchased a u8 smartwatch. I have a iphone 5. The problem I'm having is that I can't download the bt notification.apk
In instructions, it states to go ://211.144.196.251
Username: 123456
Password: 123456

However, when I attempt to go to that address, I keep getting the message (don't have permission). I can't get to the page to download the bt notification.apk. Does anyone know where I can download it so I can use the watch? Or a solution? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks again.

Hi, I've just read this entire thread looking for help. I have a U8 watch by Soyan and a G3 on 5.0.1 Lollipop, stock. I can use most of the apps mentioned here and the phone will pair with the watch, and the watch will "ring" when there is a new text, etc., but no VISUAL notification shows up on the watch, unless you go into the menu of the watch and look for the text message there. I find that completely useless, as it is easier just to pull my phone out of my pocket that it is to try to look into the menu of this watch. Is that all this watch does? Or does anybody actually see a visual "heads up" type of display on the watch when they get a new notification? And if anyone has any advice about what to do to make this work with my phone and software version, please share. Thanks!

Solution to '' sorry apk exception will be exit u8''

Hey Everyone,

I had same problem and i installed every Apps by rwatch one by one and finally Apps named SMARTWATCH worked for me ( Htc One M7, 5.0.1). I suggest everyone to install all Apps by rwatch one by one. One of them will probably works for your smartphone. Following are the Apps by rwatch
1) BTNotification
2) SmartWatchBT 4.0.apk
3) RWATCH
4) SMARTWATCH
5) Craig Smart Watch
6) SmartBlue
7) Craig SmartWatch ( Its different to 5th one )

I hope this helps. Thanks

Anyone found a software which works on Android M 6.0?
I have tried around 25 apps from playstore and other forums. None of them works, all of them throws errors - in typical Chinese English!
"Sorry, apk exception"
"Smart watch no connect"
"Install BT Notifier"

I am fed up...

I got my eBay special u8 smart watch just before new year's and intended to wear it at work (I'm a mechanic by day so didn't want an expensive watch to ruin) anyway, I have (until tonight) been unable to access my messages etc only have I been able to make and receive calls on my watch. I was getting errors like
"Sorry, apk exception"
"Smart watch no connect"
"Install BT Notifier"

The only process I could do was to go through and test every app produced by developer rwatch individually. This meant hours of installing, testing connection then uninstalling when it didn't work. I now however have found one that works 100% with no error so far *touches wood*

Link to app store is blocked because I'm a new user so you'll need to search it yourself unfortunately.

App is called "Craig Smartwatch"

Hopefully you can find it because admin restrictions on new accounts won't even let me post a picture let along a useful download link until I have successfully made several helpful posts............ catch 22, can't help people properly wiithout sharing the link but can't share the link without helping people first........ morons


Successfully working with u8 smart watch (eBay) and HTC One m8 with Android 6.12.980.5 cl663331 and kernel version [email protected] #1 SMP PREEMPT with HTC sense version 7.0

I sincerely hope this helps you all as it literally took me several hours to test countless apps out, the stress of which has not been helped by the new account limitations preventing me from posting the actual link to the app so everyone with this issue can finally solve it.......

Instructions
Turn your Bluetooth off on your phone (best if your watch is already paired)

Download and install app as per link above

Give it details to register for login (this is for the fitness tracking side of things. I am confident my details are still on my phone, it is just to create an account and keep track of your fitness goals etc.)

Choose what apps to sync notifications from.

Turn Bluetooth back on and connect watch on Bluetooth

Your watch should notify you when it's connected and you will start to receive notifications on your watch from your approved apps.



One thing that does disappoint me about this watch is the inability to reply to text messages from the watch, you can however read texts and then call the sender from the watch so that's OK I guess.

Hope this little guide helps. Admin please feel free to move or duplicate this post anywhere it is needed by members. I'll be happy to provide the link to admin so they can post it on my behalf of someone wants to contact me via pm (unless of course sending pm is also a blocked function for new member in which case all this time posting this guide will be a complete waste)

Cheers
Pat :laugh:

Fix for U8 BT notifier app

Ok I installed the BT notifier 1.3.19 version. The other BT app didnt work so make sure you install the 1.3.19 version one. Once installed i unchecked notification push. Then i paired my watch with my phone. Then go back into BT app and make sure the notification push stays unchecked.

I think there is a conflict between the android push service and the BT app push service or something but this way works.

My watch now works like a charm.

    Uwatch download

    In the original message, you forgot to say the ftp part when they said to go to, it is very important. After that, it will prompt for the user ID and password. THEN you have to click on the version of the watch you have and on the file with the extension .apk and allow the download. Then, one last step, to install it, use the File Manager app to locate it in the Download folder and click on that - this should allow you to start an installer. You may have to change the settings to allow installing from a source other than Google Play. My LG Android re-initialized and I had to re-install the notifier.

    That btnotification is crap. I have switched over to Smartwatch by rwatch. It is available in Playstore. It is very smooth and has no issues.
    Try this.
