    Help want a always on option, however the screen is to bright I have it at the lowest setting, what’s the best watch face for conserving battery , likewise I don’t want the face to change from the sleep and wake design , can’t i simply have it always dim and brightens when I raise my wrist

    OK this is a example the DIM mode display is brighter than [​IMG] Main (1st Image) version, that can't be right, i have brightness at the lowest level. Coming from a Apple watch I wasn't expecting much (PS Im on IOS ) but this is basic stuff why can't u just have a unlimited range for brightness, + & - setting 1 if my second image is to go by is a joke.

    Try different faces until you find one that's not too dull in 'dim' mode. There's such a huge range and I agree, some are just too bright when on, or dim when dimmed.

    can you store multiple custom faces via studio , or is it only one face and you have to restyle every time

    you can have multiple watch face themes with Tag Heuer Studio (I have 5 set). It's only the interactive themes which are currently limited to 3 atm.

    anyone having issues with whatsapp notifications not showing on their Tag Connected?

    I have tried restarting the watch and disable/enable the whatsapp notification on the app but no luck.

    am stuck on how to get whatsapp working again. Thanks in advance for any help!

    I had that and loaded the messenger app from Play Store. My watch is connected to iphone 6S and the basic app that comes to support that is very very poor. I almost regret buying this thing. I know there's an update promised and an iOS app but is there anything I can do to improve things? Lots of the instructions ask to complete the task on the phone i.e. connect an alternative wifi network (hidden) but nothing ever appears on the watch. I'm tempted to go back to Android phone but work phone is apple and don't want to carry multiple phones.

    Should be synced between the Tag Heuer Connected app & the watch mate. You should be able to edit & change between watch faces on both. It shouldn't matter if you are on IOS or Android as the functionality of the app is the same on both OS.
    However, with all the unfortunate connectivity issues which IOS users are currently facing with the app, I would just create the watch face themes on the watch itself.

    Hrmm, i don't have Whatsapp installed on my watch. I was receiving message notifications directly from the app on my Android phone which was great while it lasted. I'm not keen on installing Whatsapp on my phone as I don't want to send actual messages from the watch, I just want to see the notifications.
    I'm going to try resetting the watch to factory & synchronizing it to my phone again to see if I can get the notifications to work again.

    Hi...... There is a way to control the intensity of the vibration pattern when a notification of a call? The problem is the vibration is so strong that the wacht make a loud noise that if a person is near could hear it.

    In the options, you can set it to short, long or double, I don’t think there is an intensity though.

    Had my Tag back today from the warranty repairs.

    Downloaded the apps again, setup on a new iPhone & made sure everything was upto date. Downloaded a couple of apps, must have been connected to the phone all of 10 mins and it’s disconnected again with the bloody cloud symbol displayed.........I give up !

    Any one of you have seen the blue and the electric blue rubber bands live and know if any of them go well with the blue 2 counter cronograph and blue 3 hand watch background? If any :) Hard to tell from pictures as I think the colours vary a lot..

    I've got the darker blue rubber band and it seems to go more with the 2 counter chronograph. I think the 3 hand may go better with the electric blue. Seems a little too brighter than the 2 counter face, if that makes sense.

    FYI There's an update to the Android Wear app on watch and phone that adds some interesting features:

    In Android Wear 2.6:

    * Indicators about connectivity Wifi v Bluetooth
    * New 'recent app' complication
    * Adaptive text size for notifications

    Battery life right afterwards was affected, but after full charge back to normal full day into the overnight today.
