Raise to turn on display is a little fiddly sometimes

    Watch had arrived, took a 20 minute nap because was a bit exhausted from the anticipation I guess lol. Woke up and gently rotated my wrist and raised it to eye level while laying down and the display didn't turn on. Lowered my hand all the way to my waist this time and lifted and it then turned on.

    I guess it's just a software issue, teething problems and all that, but other than that specific problem when in that position (laying down) it has otherwise worked flawlessly.

    Mine has been perfect. In fact it works better than I expected. If it doesn't come on just give the screen a tap.

    Am I right in saying you can activate the display with a tap?

    Would make the odd raise wrist fail not too much of a big deal if a quick tap sorts it.

    Cheers for that.

    I think so, it works much better then expected and a lot faster than other smart watches. This is just the only problem I have noticed, which isn't really a problem depending on how you look at it because of being able to tap the screen.
