Ticwatch Pro 3 forced go into dimming mode when I turn my arm away or take it down

Hi Guys,

I have the Ticwatch Pro 3 and it's great.

But I have a little problem. I love Always on Display (AOD) and in some situations I also like to set the display not to go into dimming mode via StayLit Wear with the "indefinitely" mode. This also worked great with my Huawei Watch 2, even when I put my arm down on the home screen, even if you can see the time normally. If I set the "indefinitely" mode with the StayLit Wear app on the Ticwatch Pro 3, it works that the Ticwatch Pro 3 always remains active, but only if, for example, I have the settings open or I am in the app selection and if an app is open even if I put my arm down. It also works on the home screen when I have my arm up all the time and look at the clock. But as soon as I'm on the homescreen and I turn my arm away or take it down, the watch always goes into dimming mode, despite the "indefinitely" mode of StayLit Wear.

Possibly for better understanding:

So it works with my Huawei Watch 2.

However, with the Huawei it is also the case that the change to the dimming mode does not happen automatically when I turn my arm away or take it down, but it is purely based on the set time of seconds until the display in the AOD is dimmed.

With the Ticwatch, however, this is set somewhere in such a way that the display not only goes into dimming mode based on the set seconds, but also presumably controlled by a sensor, from a certain angle regardless of the set seconds, immediately goes into dimming mode.

That could actually only be due to the fact that Mobvoi has specified this in some system file for Wear OS, right?

Can Mobvoi make this possible for the Ticwatch Pro 3 so that I can set it so that the Ticwatch Pro 3 does not switch to dimming mode as soon as I turn the arm away or take it down? I would like a setting so that it is only time-controlled when the display changes to dimming mode and is not forced to go into dimming mode when I turn my arm away or take it off?

I want the sensor not to force the watch to go into ambient mode, but at least be able to set it to only be timed.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
