Post by Hands-Of-ZeTime » 31 Jan 2018 12:53

I read on Facebook that there is a new App. and FW released by MK.

"New Firmware Build available on Android! Firmware 1.7 (Build21)".

and: "same here, updated app on play store and refreshed the watch and had the update".

* Make sure your watch has over 30% charge.
* If possible do the update when phone is on wifi.
* iOS App. release will take up to 48Hrs due to Apple policy.
* Edit 02-02, Apple App-store show the new ZeTime App!

No official announcement from MyKronoz yet.

- Regular FW 1.7 build 21.
- Petite FW 1.0 build 12

Edit: Official announced:
Dear All,

After a long period of hard work and focus on experience improvement, today, we’re releasing new builds for iOS and Android Apps as well new version for ZeTime Firmware 1.7 (build21) and 1.0 ( Build 12) for ZeTime Petite
In order to benefit from the latest improvements, we recommend you to first install the new Apps before proceeding to firmware update.

In these new versions we have focused on the listed points below:

- Improving the overall Watch Faces Creation tool:
By adding the ability to include the second time zone as a widget.

By adding new styles of watch dials for your creations.

By optimising the watch faces loading on the watch
- We updated the Mobile App UI in some certain screen to better display your datas, specially on activity views
- We optimised the setting menu to give you faster access to some key settings that you’re using the most
- We optimised some specific languages issues
- And finally we solved countless number of bugs and issues that you guys reported in our reporting tool.

We hope you guys will enjoy these new builds.

Android App is rolling out as we speak, while iOS App might take up to 48 hours to be available depending on Apple approval cycle.

Fixed:

- Bluetooth range seems better/more stable.

- Notifications seems to be faster (send from phone and received on watch)

- Home-time-zone issues?
-- Try switching to a differend time-zone and then back
--- Question: "Am in Singapore with location on, but home time zone is set to Geneva and cannot change to Singapore. Pls check and advise... Android.. Samsung S7edge... Thanks.."
--- Answer: "Try changing to different zone like Miami Then change to Singapore. Might work. Then sync."


Not fixed:

- Double notifications (so it seems).
-- Both on the Petite and Regular.

- Calendar still only shows current months entries.

New:

- Wrist Flick is switched on by auto.
-- New: This can be set in the App.
- How to "flip". Keep your arm still and do a quick-flip of you wrist. Voila.

- When having weather location set to: Automatic, the name is not shown but a number instead.
-- When set to manual the name is shown.
-- Looks this is an Android only issue.

- Calendar is a day off for All-Day events.
-- Work around: Make sure that you do not use All-day event but set them from time-to-time.

Attention:

If the update fail restart your phone and watch and make sure the ZeTime App. is the only one running.

Attention:

People report that after the update a reboot of phone and watch solves syncing and notification issues.

I too can confirm this, sadly. Bluetooth connection does seem to be improved a tad, which is a good thing. Can't confirm step count or other tracking updates. Haven't had the chance to play around with it.

The thing is that my son does not have this issue with WhatsApp notifications. He is running a Huawei Nexus P6 on stock Android provide by Google. So no crappy shell provided by phone makers. Could the issue with the double notifications be in there?

Anyone knows it happens also on iOS?
