Do you find your smartwatchs built-in backlight timeout period actually quite short? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could adjust the backlight timeout to have the screen stay on a little longer? (So that not only you, but also your friends can marvel at that new watchface you just installed...)StayLit Wear lets you adjust the time until the display goes dark after the watch has been waked (i.e. the time the display stays on after you have tapped the screen, moved the watch, or pressed the button). Choose from a range of values of up to 5 minutes. (NEW: Choose to have the light stay on until you switch the display off again.)
USAGE: After installing the app on your phone, please allow approx. 45 seconds for the app to be pushed to your watch. In order to adjust the backlight timeout, open the StayLit Wear app on your watch. This will bring up the Longer Backlight settings. Select a setting in the list by tapping on it. Deactivate StayLit Wear by selecting "off“ in this list.NOTE: Due to an issue with Android Wear 5.1, on some devices, it may be necessary to re-select the desired light timeout each time you change the watchface. Note also that StayLit may interfere with the settings menu of the Moto 360s Dials watchface.
INSTALLATION TROUBLESHOOTING: After having been installed on the phone, StayLit should show up in the phones app drawer. On the watch, the app should show up in the app menu (accessible through long pressing the watchs power button). If it still isnt showing on the watch after several minutes, try the "resync all apps" option on the Settings page of the Android Wear app on the phone. Also, make sure that you have the latest version of the Android Wear app installed on your phone. If you are having problems installing or running the app, please contact me - I will be happy to help!
NOTE: Setting a significantly longer backlight timeout will reduce battery life. We recommend setting a value of 10 - 30 seconds...
