Android Wear 2.8 update includes new system-wide dark theme

Post by REGR » Thu Jan 25, 2018 1:02 pm

Hello everybody,
I have the black Ticwatch E and I have the newest Android Wear 2.8 update.
Both installed on the watch and on my smartphone.
A new system-wide dark theme was introduced.
But this does not work on my watch. Is there already a solution for this?

Hello,
I have now done a factory reset on my watch.
But without success. The dark theme is not activated. Both when I'm wiping from top to bottom and from bottom to top, the background is not black, but a kind of dark gray. And the background is illuminated which of course costs battery. Only if I want to send a message, I have the opportunity to select by voice or keyboard. Here the background is displayed in the dark theme mode. But only here. Where is the problem. Unfortunately, none of the developer tales here. An info like "we check that" would be useful. Hope the startup company does not make the same mistakes as others. Only sell and leave the customer alone with the problems.

Hey Hilker, but do you have the dark theme across the watch?
Also, could you please post a photo?

Mine was updated but I don't have the dark theme and my Android OS version it's 7.1.1

Regards.

I had this same problem but you have to go to the mobvoi app on your phone and log in on there.

For the Ticwatch E there is only one App from Mobvoi. This is the Ticwatch APP.
Here I am constantly logged in. And yet the dark theme does not appear!

That doesn't look like a black background, I thought it is supposed to be black (pixels off).
