  1. Hi Mike. I purchased rock watch from the Nokia store and like it very much. I would like update it, as I have version 1.1. How do I get updates?

  2. Hi Peggy, the version in the store is actually version 1.3 (the latest version), I just forgot to update the version number on the about page. Any future updates will be posted on my website and released through openrepos.net (unfortunately I haven’t had much time for Rockwatch development recently so there hasn’t been a new version yet).

  3. Thanks, Mike. I am actually quite happy with the application accept for the following issues 1)when I try to update firmware for Pebble watch, it seems to download to the watch but then does not install–then I need to reboot my phone to get Rock Watch to stop running. 2) when I download a watch face, where do I put it so it can be recognized by the Rock Watch application? I appreciate any guidance.

  4. Hi Peggy, I’m afraid recent firmware packages don’t appear to work with Rockwatch, I think something may have changed in the format but I haven’t had the opportunity to look in to this in detail. Watch faces should be detected anywhere within MyDocs, however only watch faces using the 1.x SDK will work for now.
