How do I reduce battery consumption?

We are aware that while using Ocean Sailor, the app can use up the battery quicker.
This is due to the use of GPS and map data that use resources. When preparing for the new update, we attempted to reduce resources, but it proved little gain in battery consumption reduced app performance and usage.

We recommend exiting out of the application when not in use to avoid battery consumption.
To exit out of the app, press the ‘back’ key on the watch until asked to close the application.
You can also press the ‘home’ key and go to ‘Recent apps’ to close Ocean Sailor.

How do I easily move the map back to my current location?

On the map, there is a compass icon on the left side of the screen. Tapping on the compass icon will bring the screen back to your current location.

How do I fix the error "Please turn on your location before using the app"?

The Ocean Sailor app will use your phone’s GPS as much as possible, since it is more accurate than the smartwatch. Also ensure your phone has network connectivity.

  1. Disable battery saving mode from your phone (battery saving mode can disable GPS if the screen is not on)
  2. On the smartwatch, ensure bluetooth is “On”.
    1. “Settings” –> “Connections” –> “Bluetooth”
  3. On the smartwtch, ensure location is “On” and the method “GPS” enabled. (Optional)
    1. “Settings” –> “Connections” –> “Location”
Can I save my tracking history to my phone?

Unfortunately, tracking history is limited to the smartwatch device itself. Once the app is removed, the tracking history is also deleted.

What time zone is used for tide and weather?

The time represented in tide and weather will be the location’s current time.

Example:
If you check the weather/tide in Washington State, USA, then it will be presented in the local time in Washington State.
If you check the weather/tide in Germany, then it will be presented in the local time in Germany.

Although, there are times where time zone information is not obtainable for tide, which then it will display GMT next to the time.
