Runtopia S1 Smart GPS Sport Watch

My watch failed to pair with the app. What should I do?

1. Check to see that the Bluetooth icon on the watch dial is connected: if it is connected, please confirm whether the watch has been paired to other mobile phones. If it is paired to another phone, please unpair it from the other phone and try again. Apple mobile phone users can confirm whether the Runtopia S1 is connected in the system settings\Bluetooth\My device; if it is connected, please ignore this device.
2. If there are too many Bluetooth devices around, please try pairing in another area.
3. If you have tried the above methods without success, please restart your phone and watch, and try again.

Why can't my watch’s GPS be located?

1. Please confirm that the watch has been upgraded to the latest firmware version.
2. Please confirm that the watch AGPS has been updated, as updating the AGPS will greatly speed up the locating process.
3. Please confirm that the positioning is in an open area. When there are many high buildings around, it will affect GPS signal locating.
4. When locating GPS, please stand still without moving around to speed up locating process.

How to upgrade the watch firmware version?

1. Confirm that the Runtopia APP has been upgraded to the latest version, which can be viewed on Google Play or the App Store.
2. When opening the Runtopia APP with a connected watch, an upgrade reminder notification will be displayed on the app if there is a new firmware version.
3. If there is no upgrade reminder for the new firmware version, you can also click on the “Firmware Version” column on the watch device details page. If there is a new firmware, you will be prompted to upgrade.

How to update AGPS?

1. Confirm that the Runtopia APP has been upgraded to the latest version, which can be viewed on Google Play or the App Store.
2. After opening the Runtopia APP with a connected watch, APGS will automatically update; there will be a prompt after the update has been completed.

Why should I upgrade AGPS frequently?

The position of the satellite changes constantly, therefore, after a period of time the speed of searching for the satellite will become slower. Frequent updates to AGPS can speed the process of the watch locating the satellite. This makes distance and other data calculations more accurate.

Why is the record of outdoor running inaccurate?

1. It may be that AGPS has not been updated, please ensure to update.
2. In any outdoor running, due to uncontrollable reasons such as high-rise buildings and bad weather, the GPS may be temporarily lost during tracking data, which may result in an inaccurate track record.

Why is the record of my heart rate inaccurate?

1. Please confirm that the watch has been updated to the latest version of the firmware.
2. When exercising, please wear the watch tightly on your wrist. If it is worn too loosely on your wrist, it may cause the heart rate to be inaccurate.
3. We are constantly working on optimizing heart rate measurement.

How do I sync the exercise data recorded by my watch to the Runtopia APP?

1. After opening the Runtopia APP with a connected S1 watch, the data will be automatically synchronized; you will receive a prompt after the synchronization has been completed.
2. You can also go to the watch device details page, click on the sync data in the upper right corner; you will receive a prompt after the synchronization has been completed.
Tip: It is recommended to sync data to the Runtopia APP daily, because the more data that is not synced, the longer it will take to synchronize each time. After the synchronization has been completed, the exercise data will be removed from the watch, leaving space for the subsequent data records. Once the watch storage space is used up, it will not be able to continue recording more data.

Why do I have two exercise records from the same run when I turn on my phone and watch?

If the phone and the watch are connected, and you begin recording your run on the watch first and then on on the Runtopia APP, two records will be generated at the same time. When the watch data is uploaded to the Runtopia APP, the APP will deduplicate the data generated from the same time period.
It is recommended that you connect the watch directly to begin exercise from the Runtopia APP. The watch will automatically enter the secondary display mode and collect the heart rate; if you turn on the audio alerts on the APP, you can also receive smart audio guidance. The exercise data is subject to the mobile phone used.

Why is the battery life of the watch unstable during my exercise?

The battery life of the watch during exercise will be affected by the surrounding environment, weather, temperature and other exterior factors. For example, if there are high buildings around or foggy weather, the GPS will automatically have increased signal, making the power consumption higher, and the battery life shorter.
We are also constantly working on optimizing the battery life functions to further improve experience.

What features of the watch can be used separately without connecting to the phone?

Running tracking, heart rate detection, stopwatch, compass and more can be used by the watch alone. Viewing message notifications, call reminders, and more needs the connectivity of the Runtopia APP.

Do I need to keep my phone’s Bluetooth open when wearing the watch?

Intelligent message notification and call reminder function require the mobile phone Bluetooth to be turned on to be used normally, so it is recommended to keep the mobile phone Bluetooth open all the time. The power consumption of Bluetooth is always very small.

What if I don't receive messages and notifications from my phone, Facebook, Twitter etc.?

1. Confirm that the watch and the Runtopia APP are connected.
2. Confirm whether or not you can see texts, facebook, twitter, etc. notifications in the notification bar of your mobile phone. If you can't see it in the notification bar, you need to enable facebook, twitter, and other message notifications in the system settings of your phone.
3. Confirm that the message notification switch on the device details page is enabled; additionally, Android system needs to allow the Runtopia APP to read the notification permission.
4. If you still can't receive the message, you can turn the smart message notification switch off and on again, and try again.
Tip: With an Android phone, it is highly recommended to add the Runtopia APP to the background running whitelist in the battery management of the phone’s settings, to avoid the Runtopia APP being stopped by the system. This would break the Bluetooth connection, resulting in not being able to receive message notifications on the watch.

Can the watch support other sports modes?

At present, the Runtopia S1 watch supports outdoor running and indoor running modes; it will support outdoor walking, indoor walking and cycling in later updates.

Why can't I buy the watch in my country?

Currently sales of the S1 watch are only available in the United States, Canada and Mexico; sales in other countries are being determined for later notice.
