08-Nov-2018: New App. and Firmware released!

Post by Hands-Of-ZeTime » 09 Nov 2018 08:46

Dear All,

Today we released a major update to our ZeTime Mobile App and Firmware.

While it took much longer than anticipated we’re happy to publicly release these new builds bringing highly anticipated improvement to the ZeTime experience.

First of all, it is important to note that improvements only apply once both Mobile App and watch firmware have been updated.

The latest builds are now the followings:

Firmware for ZeTime Regular : 1.7 Build 44
Firmware for ZeTime Petite : 1.0 Build 35
iOS Mobile App: 1.6.0
Android Mobile App: 1.7.1
Once installed, you’ll benefit from numerous bugs fixing improving the overall stability, BT connection, sensors improvements and many other minor modifications we made to the overall experience.

But more importantly we addressed two major pain points:

First, we totally redesigned the pairing experience to simplify it. Now, you only need to read a QR code on the watch display using your mobile phone and the new Mobile App then pairing will occur automatically.

Second, we developed a totally new experience to accurately calibrate your watch, using the Mobile App as well and the camera of your phone.

We strongly encourage you to try it! This is surprisingly effortless.

We hope you guys will enjoy these major improvements to ZeTime experience and we encourage you to stay tuned as we’re about to share with you some more great news in a very short time.

Thanks for your always support.

Fred on behalf of the ZeTime Dev. Team

One of our members wrote this:
I tested new calibration and it is interesting. Also noticed that auto localization for weather widget started to work fine.

Next finding is that there is a possibility to dismiss notification by swiping it left or right. After doing this notification is shown on the screen no more, even after turning screen off and on again.

The bad is that after update I have lost my tracking data
- More and more people complain about loosing their tracking data while others claim they still have it.
-- See reply Fred.

- If after installing the new App. and Firmware you cannot pair.
-- Do a Reset from the Settings on the watch.


The overall consensus is that the "major overhaul" promised by Fred is not this update.
Asked on FB Fred answered that there will be an announcement soon.

Hello,

I have tested and can confirm that on Android deleting all app data helps for vanished tracking information.

Thanks for the tip!

Cheers!

Edit: 2018.11.11
There is and update for Android ZeTime app which fixes tracking information disappearing.

I will not install the new update, I threw my watch in the bin.
You get no support, no feedback and the people who bought this thing through Kickstarter feel cheated.
