I’m sorry, I know this has been asked a few times, but the answers to be honest seem to assume a level of knowledge of development above where I currently am.
I spent few hours today creating my first, very simple, watch face. I then ran into the problem a lot of people have trying to connect to my watch to “run on device”.
Could someone break down in very simple terms for an idiot (me) what I need to do to get this watch and GWS to acknowledge they each exist? Relevant details and what I’ve tried already, with a few questions:
Debugging is ON on the watch
Developer mode ON on the watch (
how do I turn this off again by the way?)
Ethernet disabled on Mac
Mac connected to same 2.4ghz network
Never seen an authentication message on phone, or watch
Tried sdbOverBT which also didn’t work. App kept saying could not connect to BT, check pairing. Watch definitely paired to phone.
Watch is set to sync WiFi settings from the phone - does this make a difference?
Where can I find the IP address of the watch? I can’t seem to find it under Settings -> connections
Any help and simple suggestions for a simple man will be greatly appreciated.
The instructions on how to connect really do need updating since from what I’m seeing it’s nowhere near as straight forward as they make out.
A couple of edits have been struckthough. I’ve found the IP address. For some reason tapping the Network ID didn’t work yesterday, it did today. And I’ve found how to turn off Developer Mode. The rest of this post is no change though.
