Some pictures of it. You can see the difference a bit. Also on the one that has the full watch and band you can see that the band does not stay straight as it should (cheap). I have a Skagen and it's a huge difference, but for the 7$, I can live with it, no problem.

Has someone managed to solve the problem of the image moved up, after uploading the software. I uploaded all the versions, what I found, but none of them solve the problem. Someone can help?

Hello! Recently, I unsuccessfully stitched my watch, since they do not work, the dial has a shift up and does not respond to the touch.
I tried different, many firmwares, but it's useless.
I think the case is in different versions of motherboards, these watches are now being made by everyone who is not too lazy ((
The seller on Ali does not respond to a request for an original firmware.
Help, please, to solve this problem.

I return to my problem. Because these clocks are stamped for a long time and everyone who is not too lazy, firmware may not be suitable because of another revision of the board or another version of the display. The seller on Ali does not respond to my messages, the original from the manufacturer seems to me to be shining.
Variants of firmware tried boooolshoe amount, the process of firmware goes up to 85% and then abruptly ends.
Exit one, look for new firmware, and try.
Those who recently bought a watch, please, do not be lazy, make a backup of your watch and put it out.
There is nothing more to hope for ((

GW01 Charging Cradle

Does anyone know of a source for a replacement charging cradle, or better yet, a charging cable that will fit the GW01?

My charging cradle shorted out, and burned up a pin. The replacement cradles that had been available for under $10 on AliExpress are discontinued.

Might there be a 4-pin, USB charging cable from another model of smartwatch, that will work with the GW01? I like the watch, but I can no longer charge it, or connect VIA USB cable. Since the watch cost under $50, it seems stupid to pay over $15 for a replacement charging solution. That money would be better spent going towards a new smartwatch.

My other smartwatch (S1 Plus 3G - Android 5.1) has slightly curved, more widely spread pins, and a central locating pin. I don't know if any other common smartwatch has a pin configuration identical to the GW01.

I've got mine for about a week now and i have mixed feelings.

....

P.S. If someone finds a way to fix that call/music control issue or add more watchfaces (except the ones through the FundoApp), leave a note :)[/QUOTE]

Use "Bluetooth Audio Manager" or "SoundAbout" app to re-direct the phone/media audio output to phone speaker/earpiece

For adding more watchfaces, as far as I know now we have only way to add vpx watchfaces with simple analog or digital (we can not use dual clock) and other info such as: BATT %, day date, steps counters ...will not work together on the same watchfaces added except for the default one,.... It's only for decorate the face

my original firmware backup from Lemfo GW01

100% working

I have the same version with you, so thank you for that I don't need to back up of mine :D
P/S:
Is there anyone have knowledge about Bluetooth SPP mode or GATT(BLE) mode which is better in term of battery life and performance ?
What should we choose to connect our smartwatch communicate with mediatek smartdevice app ?

thanks

For those who want to MOD the default watchfaces come with stock firmware (change back ground image, mod watchfaces, clock fingers,...)

This mod has been post by me here long time ago: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=72063702&postcount=2128 at GT08 watch, BUT it still working for GW01 with same method

Thanks to Golem_

I will roughly guide you how to:

- First, define which ROM you want to mod ?
- Use 'mtk_6261D_reader-writter.jar' or 'romdz09.jar' utility to extract your ROM (EXT_BOOTLOADER, INT_BOOTLOADER, FILE_01_mtk (ROM), FILE_02_mtk (VIVA) ) to based file *.a, *.b like screenshot (attachment)
- On Use 'mtk_6261D_reader-writter.jar' or 'romdz09.jar' click Load, then click get pictures
- Now, Just scrolling down to find the file *.a or *.b to to get *.gif or *.png relating to your watchfaces

For example: with the ROM at here: backup_R02S_GW01_2_T6_L2_G4_HANCAI_B_1711011748 https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75944365&postcount=189
the watchfaces image locate at: 7FE7644aa.b (see screenshot)
(Here, you can also to modify file languages to your needed language)
- When, you find the needed file to modify => click extract to file, look in same folder at firmware, and check insdie files folder for the images
Now, Use the GIMP2 software image processing to mod your clock face
And if, language MOD (*) - use google translate to translation to your own language one by one line from language file you want to change...eg: FB4e8.a

Remember that, the mod file cannot bigger than the original file. (lower or equal size)
When MOD was done, just click 'import' - 'to file', - 'to rom' and - 'save' ROM

Now, flash your moded ROM and SEE
Still need to investigation more since ROM file for MTK6261D, MTK2502 was compressed...and the 'mtk_6261D_reader-writter.jar' can not extract all the things, some were broken when extracted....we need deeply intervention by WinHex to correct ...

Ref: Thank 4PDA forum for the instruction, even I don't know Russian language :D
- http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=670733&st=4080#entry54850559
- http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?act=...&subforums=1&source=all&sort=rel&result=posts

=========
EDIT: it seems that it cannot import to ROM, anyone try it with mtk2502 ROM ?

whom need it remmeber to Click THANK if you like it

    I've got mine for about a week now and i have mixed feelings.

    First of all, i really wanted to remote control the music and the calls from the watch. But this is not possible.
    GW01 has and embedded speaker and microphone so you answer calls(listen and speak) and you hear music from the watch. If you wanted to use it while having a bluetooth headset connected, just like i did, you can't.
    Pairing with your phone gives you 4 uses:
    • Phone audio
    • Media audio
    • Input device
    • Contact sharing

    As you would have guessed, disabling Phone audio will disable the calling and messaging functions, disabling Media audio will disable Music playback and control. This means that the "Apps" will ask for the missing permissions and will not launch. And if you give those uses to the GW01, you will not be able to pair it with a headset at the same time.

    There are 2 heart rate related Apps. One gives you a fixed heart rate while the other gives you a continuous feedback.
    The body temperature seems to work just fine. As for the UV, seems a bit too much since you can just look up.

    There is a vibrate app that just vibrates the watch. No other use... or at least i cant find one. Maybe for testing vibration or something?

    The notifications are a bit strange but i think it has to do with the way the phone's app sends it to the watch. For example facebook group messages show the sender's name while direct fb pm's don't show the sender.
    There are some strange options for notification like "open" which opens the notification on the phone. Why would i want something like that? On the other hand, the "like" option is pretty cool for a fast reply.

    The gesture control is a little bit buggy and i disabled it after a day's use. It detects not the movement but the turn of the wrist. So in 45 degrees the screen is off, turn it 10-15 degrees it wakes, turn it a little more and it's off again. Plus while walking hands moving around, the watch was continuously going on and off again.

    On the up side, the speaker is loud enough for everyone to hear your call in a crowded place while the microphone is decent if you hold the watch near your mouth. Move it a little far and you are silent.
    The watches' battery status appears on the notification bar thanks to the fundo app so that's another plus.

    The watchfaces was another big disappointment. There are so few of them. But as it seems on other watches having the same OS, they found a way to add your own custom made faces so i will keep my hopes up and go on searching.

    Last but not least, the battery time is better than expected. having the screen timeout at 15 seconds and using it connected to the bluetooth all the time i've got a little over 2 days of use without charge.

    I would say it is a decent first smartwatch if your budget is miles away from an android wear.

    P.S. If someone finds a way to fix that call/music control issue or add more watchfaces (except the ones through the FundoApp), leave a note :)

    Hi!
    I might just had bricked my GW01 :(
    [...]

    Hello,

    I'm just in the same situation for second time :) This happens to me when uninstalled a watchface vpx file, when this is performed by the watch the current watchface is changed :-? and if you uninstall the current one soft brick.

    To "unbrick" it the first time I first put the watch in the charge base connected to a PC and the software in the phone "Mediatek smartdevice" or maybe "Fondoo"...

    [Unbricked mine while writing...]

    Now with the watch in the base power it on (hold on button 10 seconds for forced poweroff), now let it boot and wait to see the "Internal storage" message in the watch (that's the reason of connected PC) now try to connect using the Mediatek SmartDevice (Pressing the watch icon on screen), this procedure usually fails but after 3 or 5 tries it connectes for a few seconds (around 10-20 seconds) and let you install and uninstall apps.
    Try to install the vpx that was uninstalled just before the crash, you say that the hang was when you try to install Yahoo (it does not work for me) but I'm quite sure the hang was just before, when you uninstall a watchface as the brick seems to be related to not be able to run the actual face as it is no more in the device.

    Good luck.

    Hi,
    i recently bought this smartwatch.
    For me there is one really annoying thing: When paired with my phone (Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro) incoming calls are always taken by the GW01 as handsfree. Switching to internal speaker during the call has no effect - mic of the GW01 is still used. Only possibility seems to be disconnecting the watch. Disabling the phone audio profile in phones bluetooth settings also doesn't work because then GW01 is unable to receive any push notifications.
    Is there a workaround for this issue?

    Hello,

    My procedure is not with a Xiaomi but with an Ulefone Future, bluetooth connection is complete except phone audio profile as in my case if I remove phone and multimedia profile GW01 keeps disconnecting constantly or not connecting at all, so I keep multimedia and the other profiles except phone profile. In my case multimedia routed to GW01 is also a problem, all sound notifications go to the watch (great) but also music and youtube videos (Argggg!). As disconnect the multimedia creates a problem I went to Play Store and download "SoundAbout" app and instruct it to route all multimedia audio to the phone (unconditionally), keeping my GW01 working as a notification receiver and some nice watchfaces in an elegant watch.

    I'm not sure if "SoundAbout" can also route phne calls to phone unconditionally.
