    Hi,

    I have the same problem on my Sony XZ1 and Steel HR. And I know I guy who has this problem on Samsung S8 and Steel HR Sport. 

    So it has to be something device and phone model independent that can be solved by fixing the android app.

    It might be that it was working before in an earlier version of Health mate app but I really don't feel like testing out previous versions.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem on my Samsung S8+ and Steel HR Sport. Changes in Screens customization are not saved. Health Mate Software version 5331, Android version 9, security patch level March 1, 2019.

    I got feedback from support today, that this case has been referred to Withings specialist team for additional review. 

    I hope they get a developer or QA person to review the saving procedure on "Screens customization" menu in the android app and are able to fix the "not saving" issue soon. 

    If you go to "Workouts customization" menu - it works great - you make changes, you exit the menu and re-enter the menu - all the changes you made ARE STILL THERE - have been saved. 

    But it's not the case in "Screens customization" menu - you make changes, you exit the menu and re-enter - all the changes you made HAVE BEEN DISCARDED and your looking at the default list again.

    I just got this watch yesterday and wasted so much time trying to customize my screen. I'm glad I found this forum discussion! Also not working for my new Steel HR. I have a Huawei P20 running on Android 9.0. 

     

    Hoping this get's fixed soon.

    Hi I had a ticket open for the customisation issue and got that answer today.

    "Hi Robert,

    I apologize for the delayed response.

    Please be informed that we will look into this issue that the naps recorded as this is not expected behavior for the most recent firmware update. Our new Steel HR firmware update will be deployed this week and please update me if naps are still tracked.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Best regards,

    Alda"

    Even thoug they are addressing a different topic (naps) I think it was a copy and paste error and hope the customisation issue will be solved with the update as well.

    I don't think it's a firmware issue on the watch - it's the android app that has problems saving the selection one makes on screens customization menu. Changes you make are not saved on the app when you exit the menu.
    You can see that when you reopen the same menu - everything is back to how it originally was before you made edits. 

    If you trick the app (that is not close the customization menu as it is supposed to be closed via "BACK") then the changes are indeed synced to the watch and watch will display them but only till the next sync - then again default list and order of screens from the app is written to the watch. 

    But we can hope that along a new firmware also android app will be updated and we will get a fix. 

    Then all I could complain about is the weak glass of the watch - I would gladly pay +50EUR for the watch to have a sapphire glass or gorillaX that would not scratch so easily as this mineral glass that Withings is using.

    My "temporary solution" to this is:
    - Go into Screen Customization
    - Choose the customization wanted
    - Return to the Main Page
    - Turn Bluetooth off so that watch no longer syncs

    (When you change the customization and don't go back into the Screen customization or it will revert back). This keeps the customization until my phone syncs again. So every now an then I re-sync my phone, but then re-apply the changes to the customization and then turn my Bluetooth off.  

    It's a pain, however i'm doing this so that the heart rate doesn't drain the battery.

    Rebecca,

    That indeed would be a temporary solution if you don't care about notifications. 

    As notifications were the nr 1 reason for me for getting this watch (other than the looks) it would not suit me. 
    The looks of this watch is what pushed me over the edge... to try again... even after the moisture issues I had with the first one 2 years ago.

    Fingers crossed that they will have an update for the watch and the app. What annoys me a lot is that no Withings representative is answering here in the Forum. Is this forum moderated at all?
    Everyone with the same issue please upvote this post so maybe we we get someones attention.
