APB: I don't see those new setting features for Lifelogger as your screenshot suggest. I get the basic of LifeLog on or off and profile. My current version is 2.3.A.1.10. How did you get access to that screen? Am I missing something here? Thanks in advance.

Go to Lifelog app, then "Settings" (the 3 dots on the right top corner) and then tap on "Logger" option (not the on/off button, just tap on the word "Logger").

Can anybody explain why Sony Lifelog is worth it?

I think I read it works on non Sony devices but what is wrong with Google App?

I bought the Sony Smartwatch 3 for several reasons,
1) Like to be able to charge without an adapter, in a pinch plug the watch into any mini USB charger
2) Large battery expect more battery life

Maybe not sure,
The display seems to have an ambient light sensor (not sure but it has auto mode)
Built in GPS but I am not sure when or if I will use it ( gets GPS from the phone )

But I am not sure what Lifelog is?
The watch has no heart rate sensor, it counts steps?

Looked on Google play seems to do much but if all you have is a Smartwatch and Oneplus One like I do I can not see how it do more than track steps.

I've installed lifelog only a week or 2 ago. But i think it can track sleep with the watch. Its a nice app to visualize how many steps you have taken, calories burnt, social stuff used.... and you can set goals.

But i just used it with my phone, I will get my SW3 tomorrow [emoji2] not the metal version though[emoji35]

testing done

So, last week i did some more checks and tests. Now i need to confirm that lifelog on wear DOES log activity.

what I did:
- turn off tracking settings on phone, turn on tracking on wear device (lifelog tracking settings screen)
- put phone on table.
- walked around
looking back some time later, it did show steps in the hours that the phone was on the table and not moving at all. So it had to have been registered on the watch and synchronised to the lifelog app on the phone.

some stuff i also noticed:
google FIT does not track when not connected to phone
unclear WHEN exactly the syncing happens, seems to be delayed some time(s)
llifelog doesn't do sleep tracking with smart watch
lifelog is not using GPS on smart watch

especially the last two items i would lke to see activated in any updates soon.:)

I got a strange bug with the smartwatch 3 and lifelog app, when i turn of my watch lifelog think that i am running or walking.
This bug **** all my step count and time of the day. But it's not every day, sometimes it work well...
Anybody else notice this bug ?

New lifelog update is to use gps on watch now, which indeed works... Not as accurate as gps on phone, but good enough I suppose :good:

I just installed this app. I do not see it on my Smartwatch 3. I have resynced my apps and rebooted my watch. I still get nothing. Do I have to carry my phone around to use my watch for fitness related things? cause I could have used my phone without buying a 250 dollar watch....

I may just return this and get a fitbit surge at this point. Google wear seems a few years off from being a pipboy :p

there is nothing you will see unless you have a task manager installed. its a process always running and does its work seamless. the only thing im a bit disappointed by is the GPS tracking when phone is left at home. it takes quite some time to get the fix reconized for lifelog as it seems (i can see in lifelog on phone where it start showing track on the map).

no reason to return your device, its working as described.
i even use a BT head set to listen to music without the phone with me... no issues there.

by seamless it doesn't track a single step. I'm going to try a little bit more to get it to work but I may end up sending it back if I cant get it working. To many other bands do so much more to use this as a fitness device.

Sony smartwatch, is as the name says, a smartwatch. It just happens to have some extra fitness features. If you're looking strictly for fitness features, get a fitness band. But then you don't get the smartwatch functionality.
