I just got the +Nextbit  Robin on Prime Day (great price, btw). But I added the Starbucks App that I use daily. Everything shows on the app, including my card number but the bar code is nowhere to be found. I already uninstalled a reinstalled but nothing. Does anyone know why and how to fix?

This is so weird ( in my limited tech experience). I changed the display from standard to dynamic and the barcode started to show. Even when I switched back to standard mode, the barcode stayed. 🤔

I have Google Fit on my 3 Android phones. My Moto X is the one connected to my Moto 360. I commute about 21 miles by bike a day and on weekends do about 16 to 26 miles. Fit was working great until recently stopped giving accurate readings. 16 miles would turn to .9 miles. What gives?

IBM to Acquire the Weather Company

The company said it had entered into an agreement to acquire most of the assets of the Weather Company, and its data could be combined with IBM’s Watson.

So, I have a dilemma. I like to wear a watch. Before smart watches, it was never anything fancy. In fact, my last dumb watch ( for a lack of a better term) was a $16.00 Target watch. But ever since I bought my first smart watches (Apple Watch & Moto 360 simultaneously) I've been pursuing the perfect smart watch (perfect for my needs, perfect for me). I want notifications and to be able to reply to them with the watch regardless of the app they come from. I want to be able to see what's on the screen whether I'm indoors or out. And although not a must have, it would be nice to make or take calls with the watch for those special occasions. Ah! And I must be able to use the watch to measure my transportation cycling (just current speed, average speed and total mileage is enough for me). I thought the Moto 360 with access to Google Fit was the solution. It wasn't. The total mileage using the watch was always wrong. And I mean 6 miles or more wrong. So I gave that one away. Then the Apple Watch. This one worked better (I own one iPhone and 3 Android phones). Mileage was accurate but I could never for the life of me remember to turn the cycling option on. Then I discovered Pebble smart watches and I fell in love. Unfortunately, I can't see them in dim light or read the screen indoors without my glasses. So I decided to give the Zen Watch 2 a try. Suffice it to say that during my bike ride today, I stopped to remove the Zen Watch and put my Pebble Time Steel back on.

I guess the solution here is for me to become a wearables engineer and create my own smart watch with my own requirements.

I did a thing with a video, a phone and an opinion.

Does anyone know why Fit will say I rode 21.4 miles and then all of the sudden change it to 19.5? I know my route is 21 miles, not 19. What gives?

They didn't even let us sit. We were supposed to order our food and I guess stand there with the plates on hand.
