    Is there a chance that you mean "connect" instead of "pair"? Do you have paired the watch with Ubuntu? If so, this may cause this problem - unpair it and connect only via your browser. I had in the past the problem that unpairing did not work in Kubuntu (which is very similar) in the GUI. I removed the watch via config file.

    V1 was clearly a hacker's device. If you see V2 also as a hacker's device it's perfect as it is. If you see it as a smartwatch it can be improved. I personally think it's perfect for hacking and it's perfect as it is. I like the simple technology - otherwise I would buy an Apple watch. BTW: More buttons mean more buttons that may stop working ... :-)

    Have you tried this: https://www.espruino.com/Quick+Start+BLE­#with-web-bluetooth ?
    On some OS additional work is needed.

    ah, now I understand. Interesting problem. I never had changes to more than one file. It is possible to connect more than one web IDE window/tab to a Bangle - one for each file. However I didn't try it so I can't say whether this is really working or not.

    The web IDE has "watch & upload".

    Writing Code in Bangle IDE (or VSCode)
    Upload to Bangle or emulator.
    repeat.

    When finished: commit to repo, push.

    Ah forgot: For testing notifications, I switch the BT connection from PC to phone for the test OR simulate the message in the code (from doc):

    GB({"t":"notify","id":1592721712,"src":"­WhatsApp","title":"Sample Group: Sam","body":"This is a test WhatsApp message"})

    Does anyone actually care about the barometer?

    It's nice to have, but in general as with all barometers the readings are kind of useless because you need either altitude fixed or air pressure fixed to calc altitude. So real world use cases are rare. This is not a Bangle issue, but a basic problem. I like the touch screen: On my watch I have to use the button only for restart.

    But in general: For me Bangle 2 is perfect as it is. I really appreciate your work on v1 and v2.
    If I want a perfectly designed watch I would buy an Apple Watch. Limitations give interesting hacking problems. If you ever plan to make v3 I think you have to decide whether to make a hacker or an end user product. V2 is now somehow in between.

    I put some transparent acrylic paint sold als acrylic finish (used for art paintings) on it. On my second watch I used white arcylic paint since it is easier to see if it's still on the watch. If you paint carefully the transparent finish cannot be seen.
