March 31, 2018 Announcement With their rebrand to Wear OS, Google May no longer allow software like this to run on their watches. Please do not buy any smartwatches with the intention of running Slightly Robot until this announcement is removed. Instead, you can get one of our bracelets.
ANDROID WEAR INSTRUCTIONS Slightly Robot provides a free app for Android Wear smartwatches that does everything the bracelet does. Please be aware that Slightly Robot only runs on smartwatches running the Android Wear operating system paired with an Android phone. If you have an iPhone or don't like smartwatches please purchase one of our bracelets instead. We don't support any other watches or peripherals such as Apple Watch, Tizen, Pebble and Fitbit. If you're not sure whether we support a smartwatch or your have any other questions please email us and we'll be happy to help you out.
Make sure you're using a supported smartwatch running the Android Wear operating system.
If you're running 1.0, wait a few minutes for the phone to automatically install the Slightly Robot companion wear app on your watch. You'll know app installation is complete when it shows up under installed apps on your watch. (This may not be true for some older watches like the LG G, which installs companion apps invisibly.) If after while the Slightly Robot Android Wear companion app doesn't automatically install on your phone you may have to install it manually. If there is no manual install option, you can sometimes also fix the problem by factory resetting your watch.
If you're running 2.0 you'll have to install the app manually. On your Android Wear smartwatch, open the Play Store app, scroll down to Slightly Robot and then press install.
In the Slightly Robot phone app click on "Smartwatch" in the ⋮ menu.
Wait for moving graphs to appear on your phone. When they do you're ready to go.
Open the Slightly Robot app on your phone and click on "Smartwatch" in the ⋮ menu.
Position your hand wearing the watch as if you're pulling your hair (or biting your fingernails, etc). Hold your hand still.
Without moving your hand, press the "Calibrate" button in the phone app.
Hold your hand in the position you use to pull your hair. Wait for a vibration. The watch will bring up a screen asking if you're pulling your hair. Press "Yes" to confirm and record this event. Press "No" to put the Slightly Robot app to sleep for a while.
