Screen Shot?

Post by oeagleo » Sat May 08, 2021 2:06 pm

I see after searching that someone in January also had this problem, but no offers of help, so I'll try again.
I'm a brand new (less than a week) owner of the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS, having come from a Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, and so far, this watch is a much better watch in terms of features, battery, and about everything else, but of course, evenyone knows that in here. Here's the problem.
I'm sure it's something I haven't turned off/on, but I simply cannot take a screenshot on my watch. I go into the settings of the watch, and I think it's personalization, and enable the screenshot, and it says to push both the power and the Function button at the same time. Absolutely nothing happens there. If I go into the Mobvoi App, and choose ""Watch Screenshot", It flashes "Do not turn off syncing", and then says "No Screenshot". If I go into the WatchOS app, and tap on the 3 little dots, top right corner, and choose "Take screenshot of watch", all that happens is a message "Screenshot request sent". Either none of these work, or I can't find where these screenshots are landing in my Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra phone.
Anyone wanna help before I get in contact with Mobvoi??
THanks in advance

UPDATE: I figured it out, there isn't anything, ANYWHERE that I could find that says that you have to push AND HOLD both buttons down at the same time. Doing that for a couple of seconds, provided a screenshot that I must now transfer/sync to the phone using the Mobvoi app. Extra step from the Samsung, or Apple, but at least it works... (Insert Happy Camper dance here)

Yep, you got it. That takes a screenshot which syncs with the Mobvoi app.

You can also take a screenshot from the WearOS app, but it works a little differently. You have to request the screenshot from your phone in the Wear OS app, and then you get a notification on your phone that you have to click on and choose where to save the file to. The two buttons trick in the Mobvoi app is a little more convenient.
