hey guys,

i have a little issue that is starting to bother me now...when i put my watch on charge every so often the screen will turn on and display the time as though i engaged the screen, then turn off and repeat.

my watch is working 100% fine and has taken 100% charge, what i want to know is if this is a concern or just to let it do its thing?



thanks guys,
RTJ

It is called Nightstand mode and it is a feature.

I know you say it's "resolved", but what I want to know is:

- Do you normally set it on its side when charging? You didn't say so anywhere in the thread yet.

If the OP got nightstand mode at all, it'd have to be on its side anyway. Nothing was really "resolved", as the OP was probably brushing against the table, opening/closing the drawer, etc. which would be waking it up in nightstand mode. Even vibration from traffic (if the OP lives on a busy intersection) and unstable table could wake it up too.

so far so good with the settings, it must be REAL sensitive and causing the screen to turn on, never used nightstand mode anyway!



thanks guys,
