I’m very happy to announce to you that we’ve just started to release ScanWatch’s new firmware 2651! As usual, the deployment is progressive and the firmware will be available to everyone in the following weeks. We will keep you updated here once everyone has access to the firmware.
🤔 So what are the new features?
🫀 Automatic resting heart rate alerts
Your ScanWatch can now alert you if your heart rate is significantly higher or lower than your average resting heart rate. In order to activate this feature, open Health Mate, go to “Devices” > ScanWatch > High/low heart rate. Tap on “Automatic” or select a personalized threshold. Don’t forget to activate the feature “Receive notifications” then go back to the Home page and scroll down in order to force the syncing between Health Mate and your ScanWatch. You will now get alerted when your resting heart rate is lower or higher than usual.
🔄 Bidirectional synchronization (two-way sync)
Now, all your metrics, such as steps, calories, distance and elevation, can be synchronized across all of your Health Mate enabled devices. For example: steps synced from a partner-app to Health Mate will now also be visible on your ScanWatch.
🚶♂️ Step goal notifications
Your ScanWatch will now notify you when you’ve reached your step goal twice (or more) in one day. It can also show you how many times you were able to reach your goal in a row.
🤫 “Do not disturb” mode
After receiving a notification, a long press on the watch’s crown leads directly to the “Do not disturb” setting on ScanWatch.
You can now create 10 alarms!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them here! 🙂
