Yes I’ve had signal with phone continuously, before I got the BluJay watch. The first few times I tried the watch I lost signal as soon as the pads went on over the G6 transmitter. I solved that by putting the sensor on a zone of upper arm that does not get covered by pads. With watch on the same arm as sensor I have signal until about 30-45 minutes later when it mysteriously drops out. Only correlation I’ve seen for the drop out is extreme sweatiness under the watch…it’s been hot lately!
It is the pads for sure. Last night the signal dropped out as soon as I strapped on shoulder and elbow pads. (Still using the same sensor, upper arm/lower shoulder which places it under a pad). About 15 minutes later I was able to wriggle the pads around and expose the sensor to see if I could grab a signal. It worked to do that and I was able to rely on the watch during and after the hockey.
Is there a workaround you can use for games?
Is there any rhyme or reason to how often the alarms do or don’t repeat? If there’s a pattern or adjustable settings I haven’t figured out either
They seem like an odd pattern for timing, that is for sure.
I think if you completely ignore an alarm, the total time before it gives up repeating itself is about 2.5 to 3 minutes. That is about the only thing that seems consistent.
I use two alarms in the morning. 5 minutes apart from each other, in case I sleep through the first series of vibrations.
I haven’t tried to really time them though.
Any ideas what I should look for to buy a replacement watchband? The silicone band that was OEM with the watch broke pretty easily, ripped itself right through the cross pin. Apple Watch bands don’t fit. I’ve tried a variety of old watchbands from the junk drawer and nothing comes close.
It is a 20mm band and not a 22mm band like many other watches out there.
Amazon has a number of viable options.
The alarm buzzes 30 times, then goes silent. I still haven’t timed it yet, but I DID count them!
What I can’t figure out is if you manually silence it— when does it and when doesn’t it re-alarm
If I long press, it stays off.
I have silenced it a few times that was a temporary thing, but I account that to user error on my part.
It eventually sounds again at some point, following some pattern that I don’t understand
When silencing the alarm, is the watch showing the face, or is it off?
If I silence it with the face off, I got random issues like yours.
If I wake the watch up and it shows everything, including the alarm. Then I long press. It will fully silence that alarm.
Seems like the face is always on while it’s alarming?
Is it showing the alarm itself, or the full face like normal?
If it shows the alarm only info, it will not silence. More like a random snooze.
Full face like normal silences fine for me.
It’s hard to say, at this point, because I’m usually mostly asleep, but I’ll try to pay attention to that
How dare you try and sleep. Diabetes is your awake friend to ensure you are always sleep deprived. /s
That could be your problem. I know I struggled with it for a while.
Want to know my solution?
For my first alarm, I don’t silence it!
I just let it vibrate however it makes it happy.
I will often silence my second alarm, but I am normally somewhat awake by then.
As far as the alarms go, I only wear the watch a few hours a day but when I get a vibratory buzzing alarm I just let it keep buzzing until it gives up.
Here’s the replacement band I ended up buying, FYI. Seems like pretty decent quality:
