FYI: You can hibernate the watch by going into the drop down, brightness and then hibernate. Instead of turning the watch completely off when going to sleep..why isn't this button easily available instead of having to dig it up. So far I'm impressed.

Can we make phone calls with this watch?

Its a known bug with WearOS 2.x, mic works with GA but doesn't work to pick up/make calls routed from/to the phone (not only the phone app but also VoIP apps).

I shouldn't have updated to 2.0 then because I want the mic. Can we put a disclaimer in the first post or something? Becuase now I'll have to return/exchange the watch.

Cover the watch face with your palm, the entire watch face. Does the same thing I beleive.

Which face is that ? the stock faces can be linked to fit app on the watch (as part of the face customization, long press the face, press one of the tiles and select Google fit from there).
I was using facer watch face, which i guess only showed watch steps. any other faces beside default face to show fit steps?

Saw that someone on XDA managed to force NFC on this watch but hasn't actually tested it. Shame, because this watch would be a steal if it worked with Android Pay. I'm still in need of a cheap watch or fitness tracker with Android/Samsung Pay compatibility... don't want to spend more than $100 if possible. lol I don't like wearing stuff on my wrists.

something odd happened to my Wear24 smart watch.
On monday night, i went to sleep, and there was 2% battery left. Woke up, watch was off. Put it charging. When it was done, grabbed it, and noticed all blacks had a greenish tint to it. restarted it, even reset the watch and the same thing. I did take a shower with it, but since it had water resistance rating i didnt worry about it too much. It still works fine, just has that green tint.
any idea?

It was actually tested later on and it failed, apparently stock firmware missing required modules.

Well, IMO given what you get for $85 (or even lower if you managed to stack the discounts) it is still a steal even without Android Pay or HRM, next cheapest option is 3X that price (Fossil Q Explorist $235 sale price) and still without Android Pay or HRM.

I think many have considered this a "feature" and moved on :)

Anyone looking to buy one in Toronto? Have a chrome one I do not want anymore letting go for $80. Switched to iPhone and can't really get the best use out of the watch anymore.
