Screen timeout

Post by Jaunty » Sat Oct 08, 2016 8:29 pm

I have screen timeout set at 30 seconds, however the screen only stays on for about 5 seconds. I've noticed that if i turn ambient mode on it dims at 30 seconds.

same here - but I can not confirm that the time out works in ambient mode. It's the same here: the clock turns into ambient mode after about 5 secs. The only time it works is, when I changed the timeout time or when I switched to a new watchface. Would be nice to have that fixed.

whatever i set screen timeout to is ignored.

The timeout only is considered when you are doing any action on the display. When you only did the wrist gesture it is not considered. Why? I don't know.

I've also noticed this whether I've used a gesture, it am just using the screen.

It would be great to have it switch off after the selected time as I often find myself prodding at the screen to keep it awake after 5 seconds (despite having it set to 40 seconds)

Any thoughts on this jerryeight?

Holding the tickle strip also works to keep the screen from dimming
