    If it is reproducible then maybe logging in jshFlashErasePage for zero address could be interesting to see if it gets triggered. Or the protection there could be enabled to see if it goes away.

    Nope, it did not log anything jshFlashErasePage function. But again device got bricked!!

    However erasing MBR is still interesting result of such abuse

    Honestly it was an accident and I bricked a brand new watch unfortunately. I reproduced it later on another opened watch.

    Yes it is I can reproduce it many times.
    Do you have sample code to test as you mentioned here? @fanoush

    What about if the apps can be grouped for a defined watch mode.
    For example-
    Fitness/Sports tracker mode will have all health related apps.
    Gaming Mode will be loaded with loads of games
    Geek mode will have tech apps
    Custom mode: default apps(bootloader,welcome,a clockface...) + user can define their own set of apps

    @serj, yes you are correct that BangleJs can be used as a fitness tracker and from hardware perspective it is a fitness tracker indeed. But what I wanted to say that since it is an open source watch so one can have its own use case that make this thing customizable. Like you used this to record the bike ride and GPS. Other person may have a different use case.

    Bangle.JS is precise in providing the communication to its peripherals line one can get accelerometer, magnetometer or even heart monitor sensor raw data. and it's an app that use this raw data and process it for different purpose. Like accelerometer data can used to predict "Step Count", I would see this is an app that is converting the raw X,Y,Z data to step count using some algorithm which should be the part of the App not the firmware.

    I may sound completely wrong here, this is my thought. I consider Espruino is acting like HAL + SDK for BangleJs and one can make their own app on JavaScript that can be run on Bangje.Js.

    If there are standard, reliable fitness apps, then this will have a positive effect on the sales Bangle.js,

    Agree, and community should come forward and make stable fitness apps. I am sure @Gordon will help if there is a need of change/improvement/fix in Espruino.

    Yes, it might expand the number of non-tech users, but that's great!
    On the other hand, for non-technical users, UX (user experience) should be very good:

    I think it will take some time. Even Microsoft is still improving :)

    out of the box, basic functions should work stably.

    AFAIK It is already working.

    I understand how you feel @Gordon, people should understand that there are not buying an Apple Watch or AmazeFit.

    This is an OpenSource hackable watch with is not a fitness tracker at all. I backed this project because I want something that I can wear and runs on Espruino. I have several other watches like Fossils and other cheap fitness tracker for this purpose.

    So thinking of making fitness app should not be the goal I guess, and it should be up to Espruino community.

    I planned to make even an Android app for Bangle Js but have no time.

    Honestly I really appreciate your effort by making wonderful Espruino. Thanks a lot.

    Watch return: I it really because of the apps. I mean is it possible to make a hard fault by just uploading javascript app?
