I don't have a volt meter unfortunately. I bought the watch in March and I was able to charge it at first. I then powered it off when not using it but since then I haven't got any charge.
I've tried different power bricks but all the same.
Ok, so basically you powered it off a while ago, and now it won't power back on at all?
Or did you have it at a point where it was actually running, but not charging at all?
I've just been trying with some devices here that got returned as having the same issue you have, and I've found it's possible to 'bootstrap' them. Please could you peel off the tape that's over the middle two contacts on the back of the Bangle?
It's possible that just applying the charge cable with those contacts showing will be enough to bring the Bangle back to life (maybe try some different chargers now those contacts are uncovered), but if not please can you try this?
Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm still not sure what causes the issue, but if it can be solved at your end pretty quickly it'll save all the effort of having to sort out a return.
Still no luck. I tried with a 3 volt battery from a remote and it didn't boot it. Also tried charging with the tape removed and all pins exposed and with different chargers, but still nothing.
Ok, I'll ask Christine if she can sort out a replacement for you.
Thanks, I appreciate the help and quick responses.
