    Great app, but would anyone be able to add a preset to the Score Tracker app?

    I would like something that would work with lawn bowls - no maximum score, but up to 15 “ends”, two teams. Recording number of shots per end and running total for both teams.

    This is looking really nice so far. How would it be if a swipe right was a "back"?

    Possibly counter-intuitive? (Though I guess it depends on which wrist you wear your watch...)

    Hi Gordon,
    Nope - I hadn't (and haven't) changed anything.
    What I was saying was that I followed the reboot instructions and saw "-> Bluetooth" at the bottom corner of the logo screen. Even with that implication that there was a BT connection, the BT widget on the main screen showed grey (so no connection) and there was no device connected to the Bangle.
    I don't remember having to use a BT pairing password originally, so was foxed when it was required for re-pairing after forgetting the connection on Mac and iPhone. I later found that Bangle refers to it as the "Passkey" - when other devices refer to the BT "Passcode" - and having found that, I was able to re-pair to the phone.
    I think the major issue is that, with no change of things on my end, Bangle refused to connect to the App Loader webpage, where it had had absolutely no problem before. (The process I had used in the past was to switch off the iPhone BT and then just connect on the webpage. This did not work - hence all the messing around (and commenting) to find a solution. Hopefully, we won't encounter that in the future.)

    And now I can't re-pair to the phone as it's looking for a pairing code on the Bangle (which isn't showing one...)
    UPDATE (in case anyone else has this at any point): the Passkey can be found under Settings-Bluetooth-Passkey (6 digits, which are selectable, but shows the existing setting).

    So I now have exactly this problem too. I'm using exactly the same method of connecting through the browser as I have before, and all I get is the orange bar and "Device connection failed,".

    I did the reboot and the Bangles shows '-> Bluetooth', however the BT widget is grey, the phone (to which it's usually connected, and the only device other than the browser to which it's ever been connected) has BT switched off - so it's not connected to any other BT. I have forgotten the iPhone pairing, but can't find a way to forget the browser pairing. (Update: forgot the pairing in the System Preferences instead of the browser.)

    As I say, I've done nothing different from what I always did (phone BT off, connect through the browser), but can't get Bangle connected in the browser. It does connect just fine with the phone.

    Thoughts @Gordon?

    UPDATE: Solved the issue, but not sure how. I had deleted the pairing from both phone and computer. When I tried to repair with the computer, it asked for a "passcode shown on remote Bluetooth device" but there was no indication of a code on the Bangle. Without closing that window, I opened a new window with the Apps loader page, and it connected.

    I tried to repeat this connection method, but it has failed again. Still getting the orange "Device connection failed," bar. Clicking Cancel returns to the orange bar.

    I've never had this connection issue before.

    UPDATE UPDATE: In order to be able to connect, I have to hold the button in through the <====> screen, until it boots to the logo and just ">" bottom left. Then I can click Connect on the App Loader page and it connects.

    Quick thought - are you trying to connect to the Bangle.js (or similar) in nRF Toolbox, rather than DfuTarg?

    With nRF Toolbox, every time it stops, click on Retry. It will incrementally upload the FW. Keep clicking on Retry and you'll eventually get to 100% and be able to reboot into the updated FW.

    Try nRF Toolbox instead - following the instructions on the info page.
