lately since the last nightly build every time I am done with Sleep As Android and close it I get another popup from SleepCloud that says "Th Requested upload is going to deleted 1 and update 0 records in the cloud. Are you sure you want to proceed? [Only New] [Cancel] [Proceed].

I did Only New the other day and I think it deleted all my recordds ont eh cloud. Now f I try to
"Operation Timeout, restarting backup" then the popup comes up again.

Anyone else have thsi issue?

Do you see graphs saved by Sleep Cloud? Sleep records?

Last night went to bed with battery about 60% full and phone was plugged in & charging. This morning I woke up on my own an hour past the alarm time (alarm did not go off) and my phone battery was down to 2%.

Anyone else have problems with high battery drain when plugged in and missed alarms? I'm on Nexus 5x.

(This is a cross post I from reddit.com/r/pebble but no responses yet so I'm posting here as well)

So I use my PT as a daily driver and have been using my old OG as a shower timer & sleep tracker, got the screen tearing about a month or so ago, rec'd an RMA this week. Decided to update to the new firmware on it (my original OG still is on v2.9.1 - I never bothered to update it).

Initially the firmware upgrade did not work at all when paired to my Nexus 5x (would get to about 50% then fail, then go in the boot loop), when I paired it to my Nexus 5 it updated on the first try.
But now when I try to select watchfaces or apps from the PT app and get to sync on the Pebble, the face/app will load about 5% and will get "App install unsuccessful please try again" error on the PT app or generic "Failed" on the Pebble.

Another example in the PT app when browsing watchfaces in the PT app, if I click the green dot to load the face or tap on the settings and choose "set as active watchface" nothing will happen and no errors. It seems to be be pretty random if it will load or not.

I cannot even get some apps (like Pebble's own Timer or Stopwatch) to load at all.

Is this the way the new timeline firmware is supposed to work on the OG, or is something else going on? I don't think it's a BT issue as I'm not getting any disconnect errors, the watch is right next to the phone

TL;DR - rec'd replacement RMA OG, now the new firmware is being wonky.

Woke up this morning after the latest update to the getpebble.com/sos screen I guess SaA must have crashed my Pebble Time overnight :(

Although I have never experienced such a crash, Pebbles of all kinds allow the accelerometer to "fade" in snapiness every several days. I shut it down completely and although it claims to be in factory mode, all your apps and settings are saved.

There is a Draconian factory reset but I don't think you need to go to that extent when a reboot will do the job.

Sweet dreams all!

So I just installed a black Truffol strap for my PT - I had to remove 3 1/2 links to fit my wrist. It's a snug fit now.

But after an hour or so of wearing it, I started to get a headache.
I'm not sure if I'm allergic to something in the coating, but it seems like band has a sort of smell to it? That's the best way to describe it. I'm not sure if the silver band has the same issue, or if something I'm sensitive to in the metal. AFAIK I'm not allergic to stainless steel.
I wasn't getting a rash or anything on my wrist, but after taking off the watch the headache went away.

Anyone else have this issue?

Can anyone recommend a good "business appropriate" quick release band for the Pebble Time (black)? I only have the original silicon band that came with it and a couple of nylon NATO straps, but I would like something more dressier.

+Marc R. The (one) magnet on the end of the strap seems pretty good. I will sometimes pull it a little tighter, but it generally seems to stay pretty well, sometimes creeping about 1/4 inch looser, but that's only after I've pulled it pretty tight. What I really like about it is that I can easily adjust it to be on top of a sleeve, such as my sweats, and then adjust it back to be on my arm. I was looking for something which would be infinitely adjustable instead of having to use holes at set intervals.

My sister and I are getting my mom the rose gold PTR for Mother's Day from the Amazon sale this week.
Is it necessary to get a Gadgetwrap screen or bezel protector for it? Also what are some good watchfaces that look good with the rose gold scheme?

Thanks

+Yuriy Galanter yeah I already have a matte back bezel cover for my PT from them. I just didn't know how durable/scratch resistant the PTRs are.

Anyone use the Pebble Timer app? Having an issue when timer ends and when I hit the down button on the watch, sometimes it will lag out and register it twice and delete the timer also.
Not sure if it's the app or just the Pebble Time buttons being finicky?

If I have both Pebble and Pebble Time smartwatch paired on my phone, and run the Sleep As Android App to start my bedtime, can I choose which watch I want to use for sleep tracking? I don't see it in the SaA settings anywhere.

+Petr Nalevka yes both are connected. I found d a quick workaround for now. :) I just deleted the watch app on my PT for now and only got sleep tracking to pop up on the Pebble.

Create a sleep record section has a big where after you enter the fall asleep hour, then click OK, and the wake up time and Ok and before you click add, if you rotate the screen landscape/portrait it will reset everything back to the default, so you have to reenter everything before hitting Add record.

If I'm using SaA with Pebble Time watch for sleep tracking, is it necessary to put SaA in airplane mode?

+Marc R. You absolutely do not have a "Do Not Disturb" mode? Hmm. Or just a blocking mode? I have a Note 4 on Lollipop 5.1.1 and I block virtually all calls, all messages save for a tiny "whitelist" and WiFi and mobile data are turned off. And one should definitely turn off Facebook Messenger until your morning alarm.

(I use both SaA and Gentle Alarm. Because Gentle Already is so customizable for reminders throughout the day, and their alarm is my failsafe. The playlist is harder and louder.)

If it doesn't have that mode, at least turn off Internet connectivity.
