Depending on the model of your watch and its usage, your battery will last from 5 to 12 months.

When your battery gets low, your app will notify you. Once the battery becomes too low for vibrations, all hands will point to the 6 position on your watch. You will be notified within the App that the features using vibration will no longer work until the battery is replaced. You can dismiss the low battery notification in the app as well as on your watch by pressing any pusher. After you have dismissed this notification, your watch will go back to telling time.

Notifications alert you on your watch with a vibration and / or movement of the hands. Frequent alerts may cause your battery to drain more quickly. To maximize battery life, you can:

  • Reduce the number of People or Apps you have selected in Notifications. See "HOW CAN I DELETE A CONTACT OR APP FROM MY NOTIFICATIONS?" to learn how.
  • Turn off Notifications. See "HOW DO I DEACTIVATE NOTIFICATIONS?" to learn how.
  • If your model supports Alarm functionality, turn off your alarms.

The watch comes with a coin cell lithium battery. Go to the main navigation menu found on the top left screen of the main page and open “My Devices.” Tap your device and scroll down to “Battery” in the menu to check for battery type.

NOTIFICATIONS

Notifications is a section of the app that enables you to customize the notifications you would like to receive on your watch.

  • “My People” enables you to receive notifications from a selected amount of people in your contact list. You can set whether you want to be notified when they call, text and/or email you.
  • Enable Notifications by tapping the toggle in the top right corner of your Notifications screen. Next to “My People,” you can tap to “Add” or “Edit”. Search or scroll through the contacts you would like to add and tap the back arrow to save.
  • For email notifications from your contacts to work properly, you must enable them in your phone’s settings.
  • You can add up to 6 people.
  • In the Notifications home page, tap “Add” next to “My Apps,” search or scroll through the available apps you would like to add and tap the back arrow to save.
  • For app notifications to work properly, you must enable them in your phone’s settings.
  • You can add up to 6 apps.

On iPhones, not all notifications will get sent if multiple notifications are received on the phone at the same time (e.g. you have My App Notifications for all your apps and your phone receives Gmail, Inbox, Google+, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger at the same time, possibly only one of the “My App” notifications will trigger).

To deactivate all of your notifications, tap the on/off toggle on the top right corner of the Notifications home page.

Tap “Edit” next to “My People” or “My Apps” and swipe left on the contact or app you would like to delete. Press the trash can icon.

Tap the Vibration Only text or icon for each contact or app for which you would like to disable hand movements. Your watch will only vibrate when you receive a notification from that specific contact or app.

  • Only select models allow you to change the vibration strength.
  • To change vibration strength, tap the Navigation Menu icon lines in the upper left of the screen to open the navigation menu and scroll to “Settings.” Tap “Vibration Strength” and select Light, Medium, or Strong.

You should make sure your device battery has power and your device is connected properly to the app. Your app must be running in the background for notifications to properly work. If the problem persists you may unpair your device from the phone and pair it again. If you are wearing another smartwatch device that is receiving notifications (e.g. Apple Watch, Pebble, etc.), the notification may not always go to both devices, and can in some cases only go to one of the devices, but not the other.

Be sure that the app you have selected to receive notifications from has the settings configured to show notifications on the lock screen of your phone. This determines what notifications make it to your device.

  • Be sure that the app you have selected to receive notifications for has the settings configured.
  • In instances where a contact stored has two different names e.g. John H and John Hart, make sure both are included.
