Smooth Watchface

I’m not seeing my steps or heart rate, can you fix it?

If the steps and heart rate aren’t showing up, it’s probably because the watchface doesn’t have permission from the FitBit app to read that data. Using your phone app, reinstall the watchface (select another one, install it, and then select and install Smooth again). When you select Smooth from the FitBit App Gallery, a pop up will ask you for permissions, select all. That should get the heart rate and step count showing.

There is a reported issue where the step count and heart rate show up, but never update. I haven’t been able to replicate this issue. If you have the issue, please e-mail me.

What does Smooth (and Memento Mori) do with the data that I give them permission to access?

They display it on your watchface. That’s all. Neither watchface saves or transmits your data anywhere.

How do I make the watch display in 24 hours mode?

You have to set this on your fitbit profile online; you cannot do it from the watch.

To change your clock to a 12 or 24 hour clock:

Log into your fitbit.com dashboard and click the gear icon.

Choose Settings > Personal Info.

Under Advanced Settings, find Clock Display Time and select whether you want the time shown in 12-hour or 24-hour clock units.

Click Submit and sync your device.

Memento Mori

How are you calculating my time of death?

In a word: Inaccurately

Presuming you have filled out your profile, I’m taking your age (and since I don’t know your bate of birth, I’m assuming you’re born on the 1st of January), your gender, and I’m assuming you’re located in the US (I’m guessing most english speaking fitbit users are), then I subtract the current time from your fictional date of birth + the average US (male or female) life expectancy.

It’s not super accurate, but it’s the thought that counts.
