How do I connect my watch in the car?
If your car is compatible with Bluetooth devices and you wish to make or receive a call, please ensure within the app settings notifications that you have turned off ‘other apps’. This will ensure there is no disruption to the call.
Why is my watch not recording steps?
The watch uses sensors called accelerometers; these detect wrist movement in order to measure step count. Therefore, some movements such as pushing a pram, shopping trolley or walking a dog may not fully record the step count as the watch sensors cannot pick up the 'walking' motion.
In order for the full step count to be recorded on the app, you must go into the Farah Smart app and sync the watch. This needs to be carried out on a daily basis, failure to do so will result in the full steps count not pulling through on the app. The continuous steps will not be visible on the tracker itself, you will only be able to see the step count for that day as it resets to 0 at midnight.
How do I use my watch as a selfie remote?

Can I have 2 watches connected at the same time?
You are only able to connect one device at any one time to the app, but you can switch between the devices.
On the watch in the ‘More’ function there is an ‘about’ section. This has the reference code for that particular watch, it will begin with BT. This is the watch identity, each watch number is different. In the app settings you have the option to disconnect the device. Select this to disconnect the 1st watch. The option will then change to ‘connect device’. If you then select this, it will show you the available devices that you can pair to- your 2 watches. You can then select the 2nd watch and this is what will then be visible in the app. So it is a case of disconnecting and reconnecting between the two watches.
Why doesn't my watch screen stay on for very long?
Within the advanced settings of the app there is a gesture control function that can be activated, so whenever you move your wrist the watch screen lights up.
