Dismiss open wifi on watch

Post by wesley » Tue Oct 18, 2016 8:39 pm

The watch periodically notifies me about available wifi networks. I live in a dense urban area surrounded by countless wireless networks. I have no interest in ever connecting to these networks, only those I have registered. There should be a way to ignore public wifi to remove this interruption, without switching off wifi.

I could easily add that to the flowchart for the wifi enable quick menu button. Or they could bury it in setting to only notify when in range of saved SSID and ignore open by default, then if you want to connect to one you would have to do it like you would a secure SSID less the auth.

PS, good idea btw, this is the stuff I hope Mobvoi listens too.

Are you talking about Ticwear's WiFi notifications? I don't see a point in keeping the watch's WiFi on all the time, since afaik it doesn't sync over WiFi with the companion anyway.

If you're talking about your phone's notifications, it's easy to turn them off: Just go to settings -> WiFi -> Advanced -> Network notification

This way you won't get about the open WiFi networks, and it will just connect the ones you've already used before.

+1 I don't ever want my watch to notify me of open WiFi networks (which it does all the time)
