    IOS 11.0.3 update - iPhone6

    Thinking that I could just install the IOS 11.0.3 update yesterday to solve a problem I was having with my iPhone6 and still keep the stability and battery life I have been getting with 11.0.2 I found out that if you install 11.0.3 you will not be able to pair your phone to your watch without going through the uninstall Android Wear, Forget Bluetooth, Re-Start iPhone, Reset Watch to Factory Settings, Re-install Android Wear, Re-Pair Phone to Watch and Re-install apps... Also, and this has only happened once, so will update later unlike the 11.0.2 update where I could up-swipe, settings and reconnect BT when the BT disconnected today I had to re-start the watch and Android Wear to connect to BT.

    Take Away is that if you are going to update IOS, you will most likely need to Uninstall, Forget, Re-Start, Reset, Re-Install, Re-Pair and Install....

    Hi guys, I was trying to change my bands from the Blue rubber to Orange and I noticed that the balls on top of lugs are getting a little flatter. The Orange band would not go on it strongly enough at all no matter what I did. I struggled with it for about 30 minutes without any luck. I decided to put it back on the Blue rubber and while it did go on the lugs it's not really THAT strong of a bond. But definitely stronger than the Orange band on which the lug was super lose and would fall off when I shook the band vigorously for a few seconds. I am not sure if it's an issue with the Orange band or the lug or both.

    But I do not hear the 'click' like Tag Heuer says I am supposed to when I put the band on top of the lugs for either of them. Can someone suggest what I should do under the circumstances? The watch is 3 months old and under warranty, so is that something Tag will fix/replace under warranty? Suggestions, opinions, ideas?

    I would certainly take the watch in to be looked at - you don't want to lose the module from a loose fitting

    Hey mate, can you tell us what is the new build number on your watch and where you are based? I've tried to refresh my phone for a new firmware update for the past few days but no luck so far? I'm in Australia, so maybe the update has not been pushed out to my region yet. I'd love to see the new looking watch faces recently released by TAG.
    Thanks

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if someone can enlighten me on how to remove the Get Started screen for Android Pay on our watch. Thanks!

    Once you use it for the first time to make a payment, that screen will go away. I had that this weekend where I would click android pay after first time setting it up (well not first time but first time after watch repair with new phone) and it went away after I used Android pay ONCE from the watch. Let us know

    The oval glass is the sensor for PIN...in other words when you remove watch and it no longer senses it's on your wrist it will ask for PIN (if you set that up). The pins for charging...no idea but likely similar to any USB pin out with power, ground, data.

    Just an update on battery life with newest firmware (NWD1.170824.001) and connected to Android phone, running Pujie Black always on watchface, 1 updating complication, NFC and location turned on.....after approx 1 week and settling in to normal routine, I am averaging less than 3.5% per hour now...this is consistent which is awesome.

    nice feedback mate. impressive numbers with GPS location turned on. what complication are you updating regularly? does it require GPS? I find that with location on, my watch might go 23-26 hours on a single charge. However, with location turned off, I can easily go 1 charge every 48-50 hours. I only turn my location on when needed (ie Uber, Strava).
    It would be interesting to find out what other users keep GPS location turned on for?
    I would like to see TAG make the location services app on the watches more battery efficient in a not too distant future firmware update.

    Something really wrong with my Tag Heuer Connected OG today after updating last night. Using iPhone with iOS11.0.3, and Tag is updated to latest build and apps last night. After updating, battery life was 100% at 8.20am before leaving to work, and now 25% at 12.20pm. That is only 4 hours. Before updating, battery life decreasing at only 5% perhour. Just for reference, my current build is NWS1.170511.006. Currently resetting the connection, uninstalling AW on iOS and see should there be any improvement

    Hi guys, I realise this thread is a little old, but I was searching for 'tilt' problems. Unlike Weephillie - my tilt to wake simply doesn't work. Very frustrating, even the crappy Pebble had that feature! I have Iphone 7 and hope its not because of the Androidwear /IOS issues.
    I am usually a traditionalist and have a couple of Omegas, two Tags and few others but I like a smartwatch and have been debating the Connected 45 for a while, I have also bought the mechanical to get the 'best of both worlds'. I have to say, I love the look of the Connected but I'm not overly impressed so far ....

    I recently bought a connected 45 online from the watch gallery. After unboxing, the watch started up ok but when i performed an update the watch crashed, I drained it and charged it up but the watch when it came back on was still in the same state - frozen on the TAG screen.I have returned this watch but they have refused to replace it citing ;scratches on the bevel' which is a surprise to me seeing I had the watch for a day and never wore it out

    My question is this If you invest such a sum in a watch wouldn't you expect it to work properly?? I've paid for a watch which I will not wear for another 3 weeks and when it is returned to me I am getting a repaired watch with scratches on a Bevel

    TAG and the watch gallery have been very unhelpful and I do not believe this watch will survive long outside the 2 year warantee period

    I will take this on the chin as costly mistake, but I will spread the word on this product! starting with - avoid at all costs!!

    I have a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) as I am a Diabetic from an app called xDrip. The complication updates every 5 minutes with my android phone. Also, as part of this, I do have to turn on location services (for some reason). I don't use the GPS like in a running app or maps but it's definitely on!!!

    This happens to all (most) of us after first time updating. Have it go to 0 once or twice, full charge and you will be back to under 5% per hour. Trust me.

    Hi All,

    I am new here. I got the Tag Heuer Connected a few days after it was released and it has been awesome except one thing.

    On a few occasions, the watch has come of my arm. I don't know why or how but it seems the bracelet release claps on the underside are being depressed and then it just falls off. Its happened a few times and once on the tarmac as I came out the car and as a result, when it hit the ground it got scratched, I am absolutely gutted. This is a 2K watch and its scratched already, my heart sank. Anybody have any ideas on what I can do? has anyone else had this issue?

    You can see the scratches on the top right and on the left.

    I love the watch to bits but don't like the fact its scratched on the ceramic bezel!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Its actually a fantastic watch. Apart from the fact, its a bit scratched it's flawless.
