Bangle can't connect to devices

Posted on
  • Hi there,

    I was just hoping to get some help with my Bangle. Though I can get it into the bootscreen with the mac address as per reset instructions. I'm unable to get it to connect through bluetooth at all. So I can't even do the DFU reset option. I've tried android, mac, windows, apple... No dice.

    It's just been sitting in my cupboard for a few months...

    Any help would be handy.

  • Hi - it's likely you hit an issue with the original firmware:

    You could get it into a state where you'd disabled Bluetooth in settings, but then even on the 'fresh' reboot Bluetooth would stay disabled.

    So you need to update the firmware - do you think you could try getting to the Bootloader and see if you can flash it then? It's a different screen to the Bangle.js logo one:­are-updates­6Zo

    Once you've got new firmware on it everything should be much better.

    It's possible there is a hardware fault but it's extremely unlikely as we actually write the Bangle.js firmware onto the watch wirelessly in the first place - so at some point Bluetooth has definitely been working absolutely fine.
