Do you have asked why they don't open their Software? That would give this gadget a kick, they could never build as much as they would be asked for and this without spendig Money for engeneering a new model...

How do you have contacted them? Have you used the standard support contact?

Hi folks,

do you have similar problems with the uwear?
- The Touchscreen is very sensitiv. Very often when i try to swipe, it
opens an app instead of swiping. No option in the watch to adjust
sensitivity.
- Scrolling in Messages or messages is nearly impossible, because of
above mentioned problem. Scrolling vertically is a gamble.
- Messages are unreadable on the watch because of the UI. A UI revamp is
adviseable. Less is more.
- Bluetooth often loses connection, and i have to manually reconnect on
the watch. I do not have disconnects with other Bluettoth devices, for
e.g. Deleycon BT Headset or JVC BT Car Audio.
- No automatic BT reconnect after powering off and on the watch. Have to do this manually on the watch.
- After updating the watch with your "latest" Firmware from 26.11.2015,
none of my problems were solved.

Regards
Jay

Hi,
Greetings from Bulgaria. Yesterday i received my Ulefone watch. The screen is not perfect, but i like the watch. For me it is very annoying that when I receive a call, the sound is coming from the watch, not from my phone. Is it possible to receive notifications on the watch, but to speak through the phone? I am using HTC One M8.
Thank you in advance. :)

You can change the settings on your phone.

Thank you for your quick reply! :) I cannot find it in my M8. Can I select preferred audio source for calls? In the Bluetooth settings I can only disable “Phone audio”, but when I do, the watch automatically disconnects from the phone.

it should have 2 options there one call audio and one media audio...
When u make a call you should have an option to close the speaker from bluetooth device like this one.

Yes, I have it. I can choose between the two options, but unfortunatelly by default the source is the watch. My question was if I can set somewhere the default option for calls to be the phone. :)
Thank you very much for your help. :)
Best regards!

Ι don't know I'm sure that is an option out there for that you want if you search it. If you find it share it here with us because someone maybe will have the same needs as yours. :angel: :good:

I did a check for you cuz I was curious. I have the LG G4 and when I open the paired settings under smartwatch I can disable the call audio. It disconnects from the smartwatch and then you can reconnect..I dialed a phone call through my phone and I can hear it only on my phone and not from my uwear!!
So for me it works as you want!

Thank you very much for your help. Unfortunately, with the M8 if I turn off the phone audio and reconnect the phone, I do not receive any notifications from the phone on the watch and I cannot enter the call history etc. For the moment I haven’t found anything, but if I do, I will share it here. :)

Just out of curiosity. Did anyone try to modify the rom? Is it even possible? I examiend the files and they seem to differ to standard android roms.
My intentions were to make minor cosmetical changes, like bigger notification screen for better reading. Or deactivating the BT Audio to the watch, which i don't need. If possible, then with the help of the community here, because i think Ulefone has abandoned this device and won't make any new features or updates at all.

There is a new update for download with date 29.04.2016. Last one was 07.11.2015.
The touch screen response is better, but screen is corrupted on the edges.
@Yann68. None that i know of. There is no reset button or button combination. The batterie must be empty.

Just ordered one from gearbest for like 10 bucks. All i need this to do is tell the time and show me text notifications. Does anybody that owns the watch know if its possible to remove the watch band and swap it for another one like the apple watch does? Any response would be appreciated! Thanks

    Ok guys I contact ulefone and they give me an answer.
    They will release a new update maybe and they will remove altimeter barometer and things that don't work. I asked for this and they will fix it maybe with a new update firmware.
    I also asked to add some more language support like greek characters. but they say the hardware is limited... so I ask them if they can release 2 roms supporting different languages...
    We will see soon I hope...

    Thanks Vamire
    After installing both the 32bit and 64bit drivers in the Windows 7 folder (using administrator privileges) I finally got Device Manager to recognise the watch and show the COM port (mine was 7).
    Attempted to flash the device and after about 40 minutes, the software program reported "incorrect SML file for this phone. Stop now" ??
    I stopped the flash program and started the watch

    Success!!!! I too have stopwatch and power-save options.

    Seems the flash did work after all. Now we just need to discover how to fully realise the watch's potential with different icons, wallpapers, sounds etc.

    Thanks again..
