TW Pro 3 backlight and modes

Post by alexco2890 » Thu Apr 08, 2021 10:09 pm

Hello everyone

I have a question on the Ticwatch pro 3 display modes.

Is there a way to activate the oled display JUST with the press of a button or by touch, and have the fstn backlight turn on when turning the wrist? This would keep the smartwatch full on whilist saving a ton of battery.
Or, additionally, how can I decide how/when fstn backlight get used?

Thanks in advance

You want to open settings and go to Gestures. You can turn off "tilt to wake" and turn on "touch to wake". Pressing a button will always wake the screen as well. This should get you what you're looking for.

Yes, the FSTN back light is a separate setting in the Essential Mode app. It gives you the additional customization to set it just the way you want.

The tilt to wake option keeps turning itself on for me. How do I keep it set to off?

You're turning it off in settings and it's turning back on without you changing it?

I'd start with a factory reset. Those settings should stick.

After MR2 update that i installed yesterday, FSTN back light stopped to work.
I found that there is an option in the Essential Mode app "Tilt to light up backlight" , but enabling/disabling it does not change anything.
Or at least in the normal mode. Most probably this option works only when the watch is put in Essential mode ?
If so, how can enable back the auto back light for FSTN in normal mode?
