Looks like mine is a dud.

Worked fine the first day, but now it doesn't even turn on. I put it on the base to make sure it charges, event the white light on base turns on, but watch screen never turns on.

I tried pressing the button on the watch for a few seconds, but nothing.

Try changing the charging cable and adapter.

But it turned off half an hour after I saw the watch at 95%

And I still see the blinking white light at the base of the charger. Isn't that an indicator that charging is working?

I've begun a thread summary with some of the most asked questions so far since things are getting losts with this being over 50 pages. Feel free to add stuff to it!
I update websites for a living, sometimes I make small dynamic pages because I'm bored.

I've owned mine for about 3 days, froze only a couple times but will fix itself instantaneously. No random reboots though.

Now that's worrying.

Working? yes, working properly? not necessarily.

Keeping airplane mode on is no longer needed as long as you verified disabling Cellular survives reboots (which can only be done after successfully disabling VZ carrier profile).
I will try this over the weekend and see if there's any difference in battery life.

Right now, I've even went further and disabled screen always-on because I'm afraid of OLED burn-in over time.
I know the ambient mode is very dim, but I'm not sure how well that will hold up over time.

Yesterday my remaining battery life was @ 55% after 15.5 hours, which is pretty amazing.

Over an 8hr shift plus one hour total travel time, WiFi, airplane mode disabled, only BT enabled, screen at always on, my watch is at 69%. Not too shabby.

Sim info app keeps crashing, so how do I disable vz carrier profile.

It says "sim not euicc"

Edit: nvm, reset the watch and was able to disable it

Anyone found a screen protector that works with this ? The Akwox link that was posted is now $29 for 4. Think it was like $10 before.

Why would you use a $10 screen protector on a $80 watch? Touch response is already questionable

Someone mentioned earlier that they dropped theirs first day and already a crack on the screen. Doesn't hurt to protect the watch, no matter how cheap it is.
