Watch Operating Mode

1. About the factory mode:

The NOWA watch is packed in factory mode for safe storage and shipment. The watch is powered Off and the hands are not moving.

In the factory mode, the Bluetooth is disabled so your watch won’t link to your smartphone.

To check the battery status in factory mode, short push the crown. If the red LED indicator blinks 4 times slowly (2 secs at 2 Hz), the battery is in good condition (not discharged).

2. Exit the factory mode and activate your watch:

Take out the watch from its box then long press the crown for 3 seconds to exit the factory mode and activate your watch. The red LED indicator blinks 8 times quickly (2 secs at 4 Hz). The hands start spinning and the Bluetooth turns On. The watch is now visible in the Bluetooth device list on the phone.

You can pair and connect your watch using the NOWA watch app.

3. Turn On/Off Bluetooth:

At this point, your watch is now activated (out of factory mode), and the clock is ticking. You can turn Bluetooth On/Off anytime to save the battery.

To turn On/Off Bluetooth of the watch, long press the crown for 3 seconds:

  • If the red LED indicator blinks one time, the Bluetooth is disabled.
  • If the red LED indicator blinks 8 times quickly (2secs at 4 Hz), the Bluetooth is enabled. The watch is now visible in the Bluetooth device list.

Important note: Turn Bluetooth Off when not using your watch. The main functions of the watch will still work such as displaying time and tracking your activities. It is only necessary to turn On the Bluetooth from time to time to sync data or to use smart features over a short period of time.

4. Check the Bluetooth status:

Short push the crown to check the Bluetooth status in all modes:

  • If the red LED indicator doesn’t light on, the Bluetooth is turned Off.
  • If the red LED indicator blinks 8 times quickly (2 secs at 4 Hz), the Bluetooth is turned On but not linked.
  • If the red LED indicator lights up for 2 seconds (no flashing), the Bluetooth is turned On and the watch is connected.
  • If the red LED indicator blinks 4 times slowly (2 secs at 2 Hz), the watch is in factory mode, and the battery is in good condition.

5. Put back the watch in factory mode:

To put back the watch in factory mode, push and hold the crown for 10 seconds until the red LED indicator blinks 7 times. The hands stop spinning and the watch powers Off.

Important note: In factory mode, the hands do not spin so you may think that the watch is damaged, but it’s not. If you put your watch in factory mode by mistake, press and hold the crown for 3 seconds to activate it. You can now pair and connect your watch for automatic time zone sync, activity tracking, sleep quality, and more…
