    Hey @fanoush, great that you're active here. To reduce the power drain, does espruino on the D6 use deep sleep at all? I'd like to use setTimeout() but if there's a better way for battery life, I'd love to know. If we can get to the same level (1 week on battery) as the stock firmware, that'd be incredible!

    Hi wonderful Espruino folks!

    Whilst I'm waiting eagerly for my Bangle, figured I'd have a play with the D6 bracelet thing I have.

    It has an KX023 accelerometer, but I'm looking for using the device as a sleep and step counter.

    Using an accel as a step counter will drain the battery fast, but I wondered if anyone had attempted this? There's some clever features that I don't really understand of the accelerometer but the datasheet is sparse ( https://eu.mouser.com/datasheet/2/217/KX­023%20Sell%20Sheet_0-542331.pdf ).

    Anyone used this particular part and got any tips?

    Cheers,
