Power off and Welcome App

Posted on
  • Setting up the watch before giving to someone else.
    I want to install updates, change setting and set Welcome to run on next boot.

    With dark theme set the last screen on Welcome App I think is white text on white background.

    "Turn off & run next" uses Bangle.off() and will forget time can be woken from screen press.
    "Run next boot" and "Turn off" uses Bangle.softOff() and will keep time and only wake from button press.

    Bangle.off() being able wake from screen tap does that mean its still using power?

    Connecting usb power will wake from off and but not softOff. Is that expected?
    May they should be the same or the other way round?
    I don't like things to turn on just because I put them on charge. Other opinions may differ.

    Future update, Do you think I would be possible to make timers and alarms than can wake from softOff?

  • Bangle.off() being able wake from screen tap does that mean its still using power?

    Yes, this is actually something on my list to fix. Both that and softOff do actually draw a decent amount of power right now (if you call them with the touchscreen active).

    I've just fixed the turn off behaviour, so if you go to the development app loaded and update 'welcome' then when you do the 'turn off and run next' it'll keep the time. https://espruino.github.io/BangleApps/

    Maybe but I don't see why you wouldn't just keep your Bangle on? I mean, if you don't want the screen on you can turn the screen off, but right now because of the touchscreen bug, softOff actually draws more power than keeping your Bangle on, and realistically it's never going to draw significantly less than a Bangle running normally, because in order to keep time it's still got the processor on
