Updated Eyecatcher app for iOS & Android

The latest updated app is available on both the iOS Store and Android Store.

The app updates functionality for Patterns, Photos and Info. The Bluetooth engine has been completely updated.

It took a crazy amount of time but now Android 7.1+ now works fine updating Info in the background :)

Patterns

We’ve added the folders Circles and Saved. Circles patterns create impactful slideshows updating every 10minutes.

Saved patterns are your customized photos. This lets you add your photos to slideshows. You can swipe-right to delete a Saved pattern.

Photos

You can now Load, Edit and Save your customized photos. Pressing Save saves your Customized Photo into the folder Saved in Patterns.

Filters now appear as a horizontal UI making selection much easier. Sliders for each type of filter are labeled making them easier to use. There is also a “divider” slider that lets you simultaneously see the original and filtered images.

Info

You can now set the update rate of each info source to Off, 1m, 5m, 10m, 20m, or 30m.

Android 7.1 or newer now works fine updating info sources in the background. (iOS has always worked.) Note that older Androids are no longer supported since we could not get their Android BLE working robustly in the background.

Venus now available in Yellow Gold, Red Gold, and White Rhodium

We are excited to announce that the Eyecatcher Venus is now available with yellow gold, red gold, and white rhodium plating. Venus is available in Small, Medium and Large cuff sizes.

Sorry but the Venus in silver is no longer available.

Eyecatcher app for iOS & Android updated

The latest updated app is available on both the iOS Store and Android Store.

This update 1.16 adds help screens for Setup, Patterns, Photo and Info tabs. In particular Photo now requires that you crop your photo before sending it to the Eyecatcher bracelet.

The updated app also has several smaller bug fixes.

Self-help guide

We've published a self-help guide to make sure that your Eyecatcher is working properly. If you have any issues, these are the steps that we walk you through :)

How to put on your Eyecatcher

When we demo Eyecatchers, we've noticed that some people aren't familiar with how to put on cuffs (uhum men). Here is a quick animation to show you how!

Insert on the narrowest part of your wrist, then twist. Don't try to squeeze your whole hand through the cuff -- it won't fit!
