@JF I was curious to see how long my will last without being charged on How long do I need to wait????

@kop316
Cool, I hadn't noticed this screen with uptime.

I charged mine after it ran for 9 days and a half, and it still had some juice left.

@normandc @JF

It's in the "about" page. It's been fun poking around with!

I'm amazed at how long it lasts honestly

@kop316
My Fitbit Lite hardly ever lasted 2 days, when the text written on the box mentioned 3-4 days. It ne-ver happened. Luckily I didn't purchased it with my own money: I got it as a Christmas gift from my employer (all employees got one).

That's the #1 reason I hate using Bluetooth on personal devices. You are loudly broadcasting a unique tag anyone can use to track you

@craftyguy
Not at all! How could an employer track the data from their employees' smartwatches? We're not in IT here, and we've got enough trouble getting our IT contractor do extremely simple tasks right. 😂

I have good bosses, that's not how they work. They didn't track/spy on our work when we were working remotely for a year, and we got bonuses because our "productivity" didn't dip. Wouldn't be surprised it was actually higher.
@kop316 @JF

@normandc @kop316 @JF well, I couldn't possibly have known your bosses were trustworthy, and so on when I made that comment. I recently left a large company that was trying to provide incentives for employees to wear fitness trackers so they could collect data on them. So, I'm not totally off base by suggesting that other employers might be tempted to do the same.

@craftyguy
On my end, I still don't understand how an employer can collect data from fitness trackers, when said data is sent to the fitness trackers manufacturers' website. Do you mean companies can strike a deal to purchase their employees' data?!? That would be a total breach of confidentiality, and extremely concerning.

Now at 10th day since last charge, my 1.3 reports 00% battery low. Yet it's still working 😄

I guess I'm charging it tonight. 😉

@kop316 Wow that's an impressive uptime! With BLE and wake up on wrist rotation enabled, mine runs for 4-5 days on battery :)

@JF

In idle, it finally ran out of battery after 11 days. To be honest I was expecting 48 hours max. I am thoroughly impressed with it!

@JF
Mine lasted 10 days on my wrist, but no BLE connection and with "none" wake up setting. Which, BTW, seems to be gone since flashing to 1.3?

I've since set it to raise wrist (that's when "none" disappeared), I charged it after 4 days I think when it was still at 31%. It can't seem to charge more than 92%. By then it makes a periodic buzzing noise.
@kop316

@normandc Yeah there's no "None" setting in #InfiniTime 1.3.

But since these settings are checkoxes (not a droplist or radio buttons), there's no need for "none" entry, it wouldn't make sense to have "none" entry on a checklist menu. If you want "None", just uncheck everything.

@JF @kop316

@devnull
Thanks for pointing out the buttons are actually on/off toggles. I did try to tap on an activated button to disable it and it didn't work. Tapping is sometimes flakey. I tried it again, and it took me two times for it to work.
@JF @kop316

@normandc You're welcome.

Yeah, not always easy to to use. Very small and not-so-precise touchsceeen, but for $25, as an experimental hardware, it "does the job".

@JF @kop316

@devnull
Oh yes, I'm not complaining, and grateful for @JF and other volunteers' work! You people rock!
@kop316

@normandc @devnull @kop316

Thanks! And note that we are working on a PR that should improve the touch experience :)

@normandc @JF @kop316 mine reached 5 days so far! I used to have to reboot it daily because bluetooth would stop working after 24 hours but 1.3.0 seems a lot better with this now so uptime's looking good!
