            The sleep monitor works during 9:00 pm. to 9:00 am. Do you wear it at night? BTW, does the pedometer work well?

            Hi yes I wear it during the night, I’ve done the update also. Is there something I need to do to actually make the sleep mode work? Or just wear the watch as I’m doing? It’s not working at all though? Yes the pedometer works fine & all the other bits, blood oxygen, pressure ect just not the sleep mode? Thanks

      Dec th, 2017 12:19 PM Reply

      ummm, hello joe, I’m sorry about this, because F4 doesn’t support custom sleep. 🙁 But there is a trick, you can manually change your phone’s time, after synchronization, you can’t disconnect it. And you can wear it when you go to bed, the sleep monitor will work as it should be.

    Another issue, when power off the device in settings option, when it wakes up again, it is frozen in the main screen even if you have unselected that option. so it is consuming battery very quick.
    I am using last firmware version.

    please for future firmware update, put just another main screen with just calories and steps and the time. and also put a whole menu just for steps count.

    Any idea when the new release is going to come?

    thanks.

    I have just bought the F4 smart watch and downloaded the FunDo Pro app. My impressions:
    1. Can anyone please explain me how to monitor sleep on F4? I have been wearing it for 3 days now, but not sleep data is recorded. Is there any setup required? Or I have a faulty device?
    2. Also, the pedometer overestimates daily step count. Ie, if I am standing still washing dishes, the hand movement will activate the acelerometer and input as steps. Perhaps the sensitivity is too high has to be reduced in the next firmware upgrade.
    3. The heart rate test is set to measure every 60 minutes, all day, but so far, not a single automated measurement has been done. I have to manually enter the menu and measures. Also, Syncing between the watch and the app in not occurring. I have to press the sync button in the app to sync data.
    4. I would like automated BP and oxygen sats funtion be incorporated in future upgrades as there is already for HR (but functional please!)
    5. A link to an email for contact would be interesting in the “about” section of the app.

      Hello rodrigo,

      1, Did you try to update the firmware? Wait, does the raise hand feature work? First, update the firmware to see if it works, but if the raise hand feature doesn’t work, then it is the hardware issue.

      2, the pedometer, the G-sensor depends on the hand move.

      3, yes, I received some reports about this, just update to the latest firmware.

      4, thanks for your suggestion, sorry, F4 can’t support this. 🙁

      5, you can go to Google Play and leave your comment there. 🙂

    Hi again Jon.
    I’ve tried that setting quite a few times and it didn’t work.
    I reset the watch.
    I deleted the app and reinstalled it again.
    I then paired the watch and phone again…. and none of this helped.
    This feature hasn’t worked since I unboxed the unit.
    Does this mean that the watch is faulty and should i rather return it?

    • Jon

      Ah, Brent, sorry for the inconvenience, yes, as your description, this product is faulty. Please contact the seller for help.

    I have the same problem. The watch doesn’t wake up on turnaround. I need to touch it for it to wake up.
    Is there an easy fix or should I just return it?

    • Jon

      Dec st, 2017 12:15 PM Reply

      Hello Brent, first, go to the Fundo Pro settings, tick up the auto-wake-up feature. If it still doesn’t work, make a reset, and then enable the feature again.

    Hi I have question about the operation of the band. In random times (at least I haven’t figured out a specific period), the band vibrates and displays a round icon with a “tick” inside.
    Could you tell me what is this? It is not mentioned anywhere in the manual or documentation. I have firmware version 0.2.2

      Hello Dimitris, the ‘tick’ symbol means that you reach your daily goal.(steps) It reminds you that you have achieved the goal of exercise.

    I’ve same problem as Kamil after updated firmware v.0.2.2. the height in outdoor menu is not being displayed correctly. Earlier it was 30 m and now it’s incorrect 300 m.
    I bought 2 pieces one show attitude 30 m. (v.0.1.8) another show 300 m.(v.0.2.2).
    The air pressure are almost the same at 1010 hpa.

        Hi Jon,

        Are there any plans on deploying a new firmware update? It would be super-cool if the height problem got fixed to what it was showing on 0.1.8 version in next release, because now in version 0.2.2 sleep tracking works, although it wasn’t working in 0.1.8.
        Cheers,
        Kamil

    Hello Guys,

    i bought 2 of these bracelets, one has low bright screen and long battery and the other is brighter and it barely lasts 1 day..

    I had firmware version 2.2 , I noticed that changing main screen ( the one that shows time, steps , calories etc) with the simple clock it now lasts half day more.

    I have downgrade the firmware to the version 1.7 and i am checking if the battery lasts bit more with the main screen with all the data… but i am afraid that it will not change anything.

    Please is there any solution? modify bright or something?

      Hello Juan, it seems that it is not the firmware issue, but the battery. If the old version doesn’t work for you, then this is the battery problem. I can’t help you please turn to the seller for help. :/

    Hi.
    FunDo presents a problem when it loses connection to the F4 (for example, when the F4 runs out of battery).
    I think FunDo is continually trying to reconnect and consume all the phone’s battery.
    Thank you.

    Hi.
    I want to know if it is possible to modify the brightness of the screen of the F4, which is quite low.
    And I want to offer myself to improve the Spanish translation, which now has many errors.
    Thank you.

            After a manual reflashing of the firmware version 0.1.8, it was already upgraded to version 0.2.2 over the Fundo app.
            But the problem with the altitude is the same as others.

    Hi, I updated the firmware from 0.1.8 version to the latest. My issue is that now the height in outdoor menu is not being displayed correctly now. Earlier it was 222 m and now it’s incorrect 2170 m. I am running Android Nougat, latest version of Fundo Pro, Xiaomi Redmi 4x

    I’d like to ask a question. Does “Auto wake up on hand flip” function work on this firmware? Because mine didn’t work since I bought. Is it only on mine or needed to upgrade future firmware? Best
