    Default CHECK THIS OUT - Chronos

    Has anybody heard of Chronos. Refer to below web site:

    https://wearchronos.com/

    Very interesting technology which is a disc for USD $99.99 which attaches to the back of your watch to turn your analog watch into a digital "smart watch" which links to your cell phone and enables you to have what I refer to as a "pseudo smart watch".

    Chronos functions are:

    Chronos adds:

    • Fitness Tracking
    • Music Control
    • Notification Alerts
    • Tap to Find Your Phone




    Very interesting concept, I may have to get one of these to attach to back of my gen and rep watches.

    I would not be surprised if many of us RG members jump on the band wagon to purchase a Chrono.

    The Chronos Team

    Notification controls


    To customize Chronos’ notifications:


    1. 1. Tap “Add Notification”
    2. 2. Choose the app you’d like Chronos to notify you of (Gmail, Messages, Phone, etc).
    3. 3. After adding the app, tap on it to customize the notification
      1. a. Choose from the 7 LED notifications you’d like to assign the app to. Take note, you may also choose NO LED at the righthand side.
      2. b. Choose the vibration pattern you’d like to pair the LED light to.

    4. 4. Tap “Save”


    You could also create custom notifications for your favorite contacts. To do so, simply choose “Chronos Contact” in the submenu after tapping Add Notification, find the contact you’d like to add notifications for, and continue to Step 3.


    To delete any app notification, swipe the app towards the left, and tap “Delete”.

    To temporarily disable LEDs (theatres, important meeting), tap the Menu button on the top left corner, and choose “OFF” for Brightness. You can also choose a lower brightness level.




    Chronos App-specific Questions


    What apps work with Chronos?


    Chronos works with all of your essential apps, like Phone, Messages, Email, and Calendar. It can also alert you of notifications from apps such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Whatsapp, Slack, Uber, and so much more. The list of compatible apps is expanding, and updates will be sent to your device through software upgrades.

    Feel free to suggest any apps you’d like represented, either via email (info@chronoswearables.com) or directly from our accompanying Chronos app, tapping “Make your app work with Chronos” at the bottom of the Add App list.


    Does Chronos support [mentioned app]?


    Although we currently do not offer that function, it could easily be added in future app updates. We’ll be sure to keep this into consideration.

    Notifications aren’t working for this particular app. Why?

    Make sure that Notification Center is enabled for the app in question.

    What fitness apps sync up to Chronos?

    Chronos collects and supplies fitness data to the iOS Health app. The data is then curated to various other iOS fitness apps that also collects data from the iOS Health app. Although, we’d recommend using the Chronos and iOS Health apps as your primary sources of fitness tracking, as they work best together. Other fitness apps will be compatible with Chronos later this year.


    *Quick tip

    for best accuracy, allow Chronos to be the primary source for fitness data. To do so, open the iOS Health app. From there, tap Activity, then Steps. Choose Data Sources & Access, then tap Edit on the top right. Drag Chronos to the top of Data Sources. Health app will now use Chronos as its primary source of fitness data. This will alleviate any issues with double counting (You can repeat the same procedure for

    Active Energy and Walking + Running Distance).



    Will Chronos notify me if I have a missed call or voice message?


    Chronos currently notifies you of incoming messages and calls. We may offer custom notifications to notify you of missed calls / messages via future software updates.


    Can I answer calls with Chronos?


    Chronos allows you to silence incoming calls. We may add this feature in future software updates.


    When will Android be available for download?


    We hope to have our Chronos Android app available in late October - early November. Our team is continuing to develop it, making sure it is of the same quality as its iOS counterpart. We’ll be sure to update you as we progress.


    Will there be open development for the Android app?


    We may offer open source development for Android users in the near future.



    Gesture Controls


    1. 1. Tap on the “Gestures” tab on the bottom right corner.
    2. 2. Toggle on/off the gestures you’d like to enable for your watch! A checkmark indicates that the specific gesture is active.
      1. a. Silence Calls (“Incoming Calls” tab): When a call is incoming, and you’d like to silence it, simply double tap the face of your watch.
      2. b. Control Your Camera Remotely: open your camera app. Then, double tap the face of your watch to control the camera’s shutter.
      3. c. Media Playback: open your media app (Spotify, iTunes, Google Play Music, etc). Double tap the right side (crown) of your watch to play and pause music. Triple tap to skip a track!
      4. d. Find Your Phone: repeatedly tap the face of your watch, and your phone will send out a distress call to help you find it.
      5. e. “Check the Time”: Within 5 seconds of receiving a notification, lift your wrist as though you are checking the time, and Chronos’ notification will repeat itself.




    Can I customize the gestures to do another action?


    The gesture controls that Chronos offers are currently preset. We may offer custom actions in the near future.


    Can I control the volume with Chronos?


    Chronos gesture controls allows you to play/pause your music and skip tracks. Volume control may be added in the near future.

    Does Chronos offer sleep tracking?


    Chronos counts your steps, measures distances travelled, and logs active calories burned. We may offer sleep tracking through future software updates or future iterations of Chronos.


    Does Chronos have a heart rate monitor


    Chronos counts your steps, measures distances travelled, and logs active calories burned. We may offer a heart rate monitor in a future iteration of Chronos but this version does not have it and it is not something we can add through firmware updates.

    Chronos will track your steps while disconnected to your phone. When you reconnect Chronos to your device, it will sync all of the collected information and log it into your Chronos app.


    Can I swim with Chronos?


    Chronos is IP67 certified, water and dust resistant. We do not recommend swimming with Chronos, as the microsuction bond becomes weaker when wet, and Chronos may fall off the timepiece.


    Warranty


    What are the Chronos warranty and return policies?


    Download Chronos warranty and return information here.



    Miscellaneous


    How strong is the microsuction on Chronos?


    The Microsuction will easily attach to the back casing of your watch. It takes considerable amount of effort to detach it, guaranteeing that it will stay fastened. Strength may also depend on the material and type of surface that it attaches to. Engravings may provide a slightly weaker bond.


    Can I charge Chronos overnight?


    It is safe and recommended to charge Chronos overnight. This way, Chronos will always be charged and ready to go.


    How can I tell when Chronos is fully charged?


    When Chronos is on its charger, tap it to get the charging status. If it glows red, it is in the process of charging. If it glows green, it is fully charged.

    Looks as if I will have to wait to get one until the Android version is released as the current version is only for Apple iPhones.

    Thanks for posting, the Chronos web site indicated the Android version would soon be released.

    It looks as if they need to update their web site.

    No idea, maybe you are viewing it on your phone? On their desktop version of their website, the iTune and playstore icon is at the bottom...

    I actually have a Chronos that I wear everyday. I don't even notice it is there and I appreciate the vibration to notify me of texts. It's much better than having my phone vibrate on my desk.

    It's fitness tracking is decent. It only tracks one day at a time though, previous days you'll find in the heath app on your phone ("Health" on iPhone, not sure what the Android version is).

    You can set up specific color/vibration patters for specific contacts on your phone.

    You can also be notified for certain apps, IE calendar appointments, new emails, Facebook and Facebook messenger and phone calls. They take suggestions and I believe more app notifications are forthcoming.

    You can double tap your watch to silence incoming calls.
    You can open your camera app and double tap your watch for pictures.
    With music apps you can double tap the watch crown to play and pause - and triple tap to switch to the next track.
    Repeatedly tapping on your watch activates the find phone feature.

    I find it pretty useful. I got mine at my local Macy's for around $70. I think it's worth it for that price.

    It looks pretty thick - is it comfortable OK?
    I like the Montblanc E-Strap, but I think they've stopped making it and moved to either normal watches or smartwatches. Might have a look on Ebay, I have a MB Profile that would like it!
