Is there an option to turn off the gestures on the watch?
Doesn't look like it. Some other gestures are optional, but there are no settings to turn off palm gesture.

It seems to partially help, but the watch still occasionally resets to showing time.
Same thing Woo support suggested to me for Android watch (you can see on my video that watch is in don't disturb mode). It helped a bit - before that I wasn't able to see any jumps at all. Still, it is no cure for a palm gesture :(

The Apple Watch has a feature called Water Lock, which prevents any input from the touch screen. To unlock it you have to roll the crown.

Of course it does.. when you select the woo app it enables it automatically.. what's your point?

I wasn't aware it was enabled automatically. Doesnt that mean the last app will stay going?

I tested Woo 3.0 with Android watch and it is unusable on water. Any splash of water causes watch to exit Woo app and go to a Clock screen. I think watch treats it as a "palm gesture". In short, it works OK as long as you never fall :naughty:
All you have to do is untick the "always on" option from screen option (yes UNTICK)
Might sound weird but if the option is ticked then the watch enters a scren saver mode which in turns exits the woo app if it gets splashed or if it goes to screen saver.
Unitcking the option will make your woo app stay active and if screen ends up going dark just tap on it again an woo app is still there ...

Here is a short video demonstrating the problem:

Trying to embed a video here, but all I get is the above. How do I do it?
I am currently looking for anew android solution that is inexpensive and work well. I just want it for kiting, so asthetics are not important. Typically, I buy something right before a solid option is offered. Waiting a bit this time
Me too. Have Garmin and just want a display. Would be great to ID even an old model that works acceptably and wont die if wet. Ive tried on allibaba to find cheapos but cant get answers on os versions for android wear. Is there a thread on the topic as this one is iphone oriented.

Thanks, I figured that out a few sessions ago, works much better this way.

Today I hit another problem though - watch shows that it is connected, but it doesn't show any jumps. Not a single jump whole session. Woo actually does have 50 jumps when you connect it a phone, they just don't show up on watch for some reason. Restarted both, the watch and Woo - same result. It is just ridiculous. I had similar problems with Xensr - I just stopped using the watch after few times. Looks like Woo heading the same direction for me :( :( :(

Had another 30 minutes session today - Woo and Android watch behaved perfectly. All jumps show up on the watch, app keeps on screen and connected to Woo. It is very nice when it actually works!
