MetaWatch Manager for Android - on Google Play!

The Android app (MetaWatch Manager for Android) is up on Google Play!

Before I give you the link, I have an urgent message for anyone who installed the pre-release version manually (either from the dropbox link or by email). **You must UNINSTALL the previous version of the app before you install this one**

To uninstall, you can go to "Settings->Apps" find one called "MWM" in the list under the "Downloaded" or "All" tab of Apps. Tap on it, and then tap "Uninstall" and then "OK".

Once that's done, you can now install the version on Google Play here:

Also if you installed the pre-release version, don't forget to switch your phone back to not accept apps from unknown sources. This is in "Settings->Security" and then Uncheck "Unknown Sources" (You might need to check where your phone put that setting, it could be in a different menu location on different phones).

Here are some of the important notes:

➤ Beta version, supports caller ID, SMS, and calendar notifications. Supports time and calendar widgets. More features coming over the next days and weeks.

➤ Android OS 4.2 contains a Bluetooth transmit bug, Android OS 4.2 is not currently supported. We are working on a fix with Google.

➤ Tested devices include: Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Nexus 7 with the latest OS

➤ A minimum resolution of 800 x 480 (WVGA) may be required for operation at this time. We're working to make broader compatibility.

➤ We are currently working on adding features, watch for frequent updates this December.

➤ Email: with any questions.

Now we will start updating the app on Play when new versions come out.

      Still waiting update for Android 4.2.

      That's strange BT having issue only with MetaWatch and not with another platforms.

      I've seen no sign of my Stealth Black Strata - how do I learn if it has been shipped, or when it will be shipped? Thanks so much - looking forward to having it here.

      Hey Guys,
      For all of you that are wondering about the stealth units, I messaged kickstarter support, and heres what I got back.
      Hi Chris,
      I was just talking to the factory tonight and I emphasized how important it is to get the first batch of Stealth out. I don't have the date they will get on an airplane yet. I believe it will ship out from Hong Kong next week and arrive early or mid the week after (17th, 18th). Obviously we would like to have it earlier than that and we'll do what we can within reason to accelerate this, including shipping smaller batches at more expense to us.
      We should have much more visibility next week. On Monday we do another quality inspection and the plan for the customs export and overseas logistics.
      Feel free to keep pinging.

      I got mine,
      Unfortunately, I still use a Iphone 4.
      Is there a solution to use the watch, or must I purchase :-((( a 4S or a 5?

    18. Jesse Moore on December 6, 2012

      An update on the Stealth backers would be great! Last update was a couple of weeks ago. Are they coming soon??

      Any update on getting the metawatch to connect to 4.2? Thanks! Loving the watch so far.

      So, just out of curiosity, how are the watches moving from China to LA? Are they going by air or by sea? If by sea, has the strike held things up at all?

    21. Faye Salwin on December 3, 2012

      I'm in California and awaiting a Stealth. No notification yet.

      Chris B on December 3, 2012

      Just curious... has anyone with a Stealth received shipping info yet? They were scheduled to come in last week but of course have to be assembled, boxed, and packaged up for shipping yet.

      ok i just got mine in the mail today and it's pretty awesome.

      But the software is very limited right now. While I wait for a stuff like the weather widget and sms widget; it would be really cool if i could make my own custom back face for the 2x2 clock widget. The fish are nice, but i want to personalize this.

      is there any way we can get a tute for this?

      Did anyone received an optic green version? I'm so eager to see it.

    26. Angelo on November 28, 2012

      Thanks for the info.I may have to reflash my galaxy nexus and downgrade it to 4.1.2 if this doesn't get fixed by the time I get my watch.

    27. SIVAKUMAR SURYA BALU on November 28, 2012

      Angelo, I do have Nexus 4 and it didn't work on both 4.2 & 4.2.1...I just used by wife's galaxy S3 to configure the clock widget for time being.

      Guillermo on November 28, 2012

      Angelo, it does not work at all on 4.2. 4.2.1 does not solve the problem. I have a Nexus 4 and I can't use the watch.

    29. Alexander Balakersky on November 27, 2012

      I have a comment about Calendar widget. For some reason the event displayed is not the next one but the one in 6 days. It displays it with the correct date and start time, but when I use half screen sized widget it also displays what I think is the end time and that one is incorrect by 4.5 hours

      Also, what's with the fishes on the full screen clock widget? Is there a reason for them and could they be removed in favor of a larger time and date?

      Also, half screen clock widget is horizontal while half screen calendar is vertical. Thus you cannot have both on one screen. Can that be changed?

      Thanks for the great device. Cannot wait for new updates :)

    30. Angelo on November 27, 2012

      When you say that there is a Bluetooth transmit bug in Android 4.2, does that mean the watch won't work or connect at all rendering it inoperable?Also,I think they just started rolling out Android 4.2.1 today.Does that fix any Bluetooth issues?
