This update looks good. Analog ambient display is a good move, saved us from the boring digital face. Watch faces are still a disappointment though, nothing new added. Navigation is working. Other details are yet to be tested.
I feel much better! You guys need to be more communicative and deliver the promises without missing the TAT.
Still not anywhere near to the Android gear. Watch face maker would be a good add.

Thanks for the message Jiju. Really appreciate your taking the time and effort to share your feedback. We shall try our best to constantly keep communicating, and increase the frequency of feature releases!

There is no caller app in my watch!
March 29, 2017 at 4:35 PM #4689
Cannot update the watch either by desktop app, the connect icon is grayed out even when my pc is recognizing the watch and showing me all the folders within.
Where am i going wrong?

As soon as i downloaded the blink desktop app, and clicked on it to run it, there are two windows that open, one is a small window overlay on blink’s window and a cursor moves from one line to another for few lines and then it closes (the window is green in color). and then blink window opens and says sign in with google.
I felt that suspicious, because blink’s desktop app install doesnt mention anything about google sign in asking for moving ahead.
Is it safe to continue?

Thank you for the message, Ankush.
Yes, it is perfectly secure to go ahead while you see the other window. We request you to update the OS and let us know the feedback.
March 29, 2017 at 9:09 PM #4695
Sure. I m just updating it. Will let you know the feedback in two days. 🙂

My experience after the latest update.
Updated it very eagerly yesterday night 1.notification was working along with reply with voice (in whatsapp)
2.didnt see any new watchfaces and no change when ae to see digital watchfaces. Still donno what ambient and the other settings do.
3.no incoming call notification and reply/reject option.
4.bluetooth tethering getting switched off for no reason. Why cant the blink phone app manage the tethering (while installing and on restart user has to enable this) if other apps can do this?
5.desktop app is a waste of time. Thought it updated in 2 mins as advertised,but didnt do anything. Blink was connected with pc and i could see folders.
6.navigation interface is the same as before and it works as before. No map as promised.
7.didnt see any option to customize notifications. It says you could do it via app.
8.timeline not showing google calendar.
9.dont see the bluetooth internet option. Dont miss it though, coz it was very confusing and practically useless.
10.to top it all, blink app started shutting down right after launch. Started happening after desparate attempts to connect by forgetting and pairing. Doesnt work at all now.
Thanks for the update, Blink team. This is the best paperweight ever!

Thanks for the message, Bipin!
To address your queries in detail:
2.This update did not add any new watchfaces. We have a new set lined up soon!
The ambient display is to let the watch always show time (in low power mode) so that you don’t have to scare at a Blck screen or keep the display on that drains out battery.
3.You would need to enable Call Notifications from the Mobile App’s Preferences > Caller > Phone
4.For some Android devices, you will need to allow teethering again, if you switch off BT Teethering (or it automatically switches Off). We recommend you to keep it always On, as it does not necessarily use phone’s battery unless there is some data transfer happening.
5.Post the download of the OS Build (which is dependent on your internet speed), we have seen the update process on the watch take under a minute.
6.navigation interface is the same as before and it works as before. No map as promised. – There has been no change to this.
7. You can go to Preferences on the side bar and see “Notifications” item
8.Google calendar is lined up for our subsequent update
9.It has been deliberately removed from the watch
10.This ideally should not happen – Do let us know if you are still facing a problem by contacting us at email@example.com / +91 9066023660, and our team shall get in touch with you!
We look forward to hearing from you!

Battery backup is decent 8 hours office 100 to 45 without pairing. Able to receive and reject call, but incoming calls are not displayed. Gesture working much better, but still not accurate. Map doesn’t show the map but displays the direction.
Tethering gets disconnected after some time and difficult to connect again.
Ambient display is the best in this update! Whichever Analog face we select that will be displayed in ambient display. Power save mode is not tested yet.
Overall,I felt good and considerably relaxed, will be using the watch for some days for sure.

Dear Team Blink,
I downloaded the installer for Windows twice BUT each time I get a messsage “Failed To extract installer”. I use Windows 10.
March 30, 2017 at 7:30 PM #4705
Hi Ratninder, thanks for the message. Our team shall get in touch with you to resolve the issue!

@admin Iam not able to receive calls on the watch, only able to reject. Requesting you to start a thread in which u can mention all the features that the watch can provide finally and the ones u have rolled out. As n when there is an update, just modify the thread so that people who have not kept track of all your posts can find what has been happening in a single thread or post.
April 7, 2017 at 2:20 PM #4791
@admin this is doubtless the best update that has been rolled out till date! All changes that has been mentioned as part of this update works – at least most of the time. There are wrinkles that I am sure you guys are ironing it out.
The whole update process was a breeze. Did not have to go for the Desktop App option. So dunno if at all any issues.
Have been using it for this week.
Works as promised. Seamless Accept and Reject, Automatic Caller ID
Has been improved. Can be better.
Selective notification option works
Nice add on. Hated the last update of digital watch face without wrist up. This works, but there are glitches as the wrist up tends to not work at times. Need to switch the gesture control off and on.
Certain improvement. With the ambient display the device gives a decent 12 Hr time. Good enough for now.
Have not had a connectivity issue in the last 1 week of use
Overall, pretty excited by the update. Good going, team!
You had mentioned a “Bi-Weekly” release. Did you mean Fortnightly? Haven’t seen a single release coming in this week. 🙂 Only request is not to give out timelines if that cannot be met.
April 8, 2017 at 5:53 PM #4792
The problem I noticed in new updates are navigation sometimes connects and sometimes fail the double tap voice command doesn’t work at all it restarts the phone and lastly the reply through command in whatsapp cannot be send instantly u have to wait for a while or else it fails.

User Experience after 28.03.2017 UPDATE so far:
Battery Life if not connected via Bluetooth is 12 hrs(100% to 0%) but if ambient mode is ON then battery percent drops like crazy.Will update with Bluetooth ON battery stats & if other features have improved after this UPDATE.
April 13, 2017 at 11:53 AM #4803
Thanks for the message, JKV. This is unusually low battery life than expected. Would request you to use the desktop App to share your battery logs, and our team shall look into the issue and solve it!
April 11, 2017 at 3:34 PM #4797
Desktop app not installing on windows 10, “Failed to extract Installer”.
April 13, 2017 at 11:53 AM #4804
Thanks for bringing this up, Ratninder. Our team shall get in touch with you to resolve this!

Feeling very hungry for an update, me & my Blink 🙂
May 4, 2017 at 3:18 AM #4989
Hope update is coming this week and will tick out many from the coming section
May 5, 2017 at 3:16 PM #4990
Dear blink team,
The watch does not vibrate nor makes sound during any incoming call, although the vibration and sound are on.
I am only able to reject the call and not accept it on the watch!

Hi Blink Team,
I need some clarity in Music source option in music app, When I select remote as source option am unable to play or fetch any songs can anyone explain me about this feature and I faced another issue I paired my BT headphone with blink but it’s always displaying as connected even though my BT headphones are switched off and when I turn ON BT headphones device didn’t get connected automatically but showing as connected when I play some music it started playing from my device speaker instead of playing it on my BT headphones as an workaround am unpairing and pairing it every time to connect to my BT headset.
June 5, 2017 at 9:39 PM #5060
Hope the query has been duly addressed by our team.
