    Found a problem the first time I tried to use my watch and the barcode the watch face turns off when you try to turn your wrist facing the scanner.

    Don't flip your wrist that way. If you flip your wrist, assuming the watch is facing you, directly 180 degrees, it shuts off. Alternatively, just keep the wrist rotation the same or only rotate 90 degrees, and show it to the cashier.

    It's a simple adjustment, and worth it to allow the watch to sense when it should be on, and when it should be off, conserving battery.

    Just tap the screen. tapping the screen makes it stay on for 30 seconds unless you set it for more in settings.

    Does Fandango send the barcode to Wallet? The Wallet app should keep the screen on longer regardless of wrist orientation.
