DSW watch update
We hope you had a great summer. We are delighted to be back with a major update providing several improvements to your DSW watch. Probably the penultimate one before the official release of the watch this early fall (the next update will focus on improving complementary functions such as running against the clock, trackback and ghost mode).
Here are some of the additions/modifications as well as the necessary steps to update your watch. We draw your attention on the number 2 of the upgrade step which has recently been added and is essential to the success of it.
1 Added French language: SETUP-> SYSTEM-> LANGUAGE (if you have any comments about the translation, please send us)
2 Bug fixed when calculating calories.
3 PAGE 2 split into two customizable fields instead of three as in the PAGES 3-5: SETUP->SET PAGES->PAGE 2->SETTINGS
3 Ability to hide/disable each of the 5 training pages (COMPASS, PAGE 1 PAGE 2 PAGE 3 PAGE 4 PAGE 5, MAP) in SETUP->SET PAGES and select ON / OFF for any particular page.
4 Ability to display the time of day in every of the customizable fields of training pages 2 to 5: SETUP-> SET PAGES-> PAGE 2 to 5> SETTINGS and select TIME.
5 When the watch is in standby mode and displays the time, you can start the GPS while pressing the OK button once.
6 Smoothing of the calculation of instant speed/pace now based on 20 GPS points.
8 New training data in PAGE 1: Cardio + Instant Pace + Distance (we expect the next update to allow switching between instant pace and speed).
9 Audible warning when getting a successful 3D GPS fix.
10 Blocked any outdoor training under a 2D FIX. The training will start automatically when the GPS will get a 3D fix.
11 Heart rate displayed in the bottom of the screen while navigating through menus.
12 Adding a third page showing just the time and the hear rate in INDOOR mode (start a indoor training then press 2 times the OK button).
13 New layout for interval training.
14 Added trackback option at the end of each workout record log.
15 Changing the MENU tree.
16 Watch will beep every 5 minutes when battery charge is low.
17 Translating and updating the quickstart guide (see the download tab on the product page or clic here).
1 Before updating your watch, please make sure the battery is at least half charged. Also, it is safer to backup and copy all the watch folders onto your computer in case something wrong would happen during the update.
2 Connect your watch to your computer. Use the mouse and right-click on the DEVICE FIRMWARE UPGRADE folder and delete it. Eject your watch from your system and disconnect it from your computer. By reconnecting the watch to your computer, a new DEVICE FIRMWARE UPGRADE folder will be created automatically. This one will be used in the next steps.
3 Download and unzip this file.
4 Drop the extracted .cpw file into the “DEVICE FIRMWARE UPGRADE” folder of your watch. Once done, you can eject the watch from your pc, turn it on again and let the watch automatically upgrade until it powers off by itself.
5 Turn your watch back on and reset its parameters by performing the step below: go in MENU->SETUP->STATUS and choose RESET. Your watch is now ready to be used again.
6 It is also advisable to set the time by selecting the right time zone or Daylight savings mode if necessary (Settings-> System-> TIME) and also associate your heart monitor with your watch (SETUP-> SENSOR).
Note that the first GPS connection (3d fix) after an update can be longer than usual.
Heart rate monitor and watch information.
A small number of users have noticed that the displaying of the heart rate can sometime be intermittent. Most of the time, inserting a new battery or forcing a reset on the transmitter by removing the battery and touching the two metal terminals for 20 seconds with a conductive object (trombone, needle, pin, etc.) will solve the problem. If, despite of this, the problem persists, please contact us for a replacement.
Also, if your watch freeze and become unresponsive, you can press the power button during 20 seconds, turn your watch back on and make a reset (SETUP->STATUS->RESET).
