Bluetooth and Wrist Gesture will not turn off

Only had the SW 3 for a few days but having paired it, cannot get the Bluetooth to stop scanning.

 

I used the TURN BLUETOOTH ON screen initially but the TURN BLUETOOTH OFF doesn't appear on the menu - just keeps searching for nearby devices, this must drain the battery.

 

Also, after a few shut downs and start ups Iknow have both the TURN WRIST GESTURES ON and OFF options, whereas initially there was no OFF option on the menu, but selecting OFF makes no difference, a hand movement brings the time screen to life - useless when running or active, again a battery drain

 

Does anyone have the same problem, or solutions?

I realy like this watch but it's a worry that it's still experimental...

 

Thanks.

Re: Bluetooth and Wrist Gesture will not turn off

To make the screen stay off there is one option in the Android Wear app in the phone.

 

  1. Open the Android Wear App
  2. Press the Gear button
  3. Press your device (Smartwatch 3)
  4. Disable Tilt to wake screen option

 

Hope that does what you want smile happy

If it was me I'd factory reset the watch and re-pair it and also clear date and cache from the Android wear app

Hi,

 

I think you have misunderstood these features. When you enter the Bluetooth menu from your SmartWatch 3, it will search for nearby devices but if you exit the menu it will not scan for devices.

 

The wrist gesture is a function to scroll/swipe between your cards (with wrist gestures) when you are at the home screen. Even with the wrist gesture feature ON or OFF, you will wake the screen of the clock when you turn it towards you.

Re: Bluetooth and Wrist Gesture will not turn off

Thanks for your reply - I got a reply from Sony support which wasn't at all helpful , just suggested going to settings and 'selecting Turn Bluetooth Off'  which of course I would do if that option was there ( the whole point of contacting them)  - have got in touch again but I'm guessing I'll get the same . So, it seems it Turn Off Bluetooth is supposed to be an option ...also the Unpair Device option doesn't show any paired devices even though the watch is bluetoothing ok with phone when wifi not connected.

Thanks again,
