Keys and navigation

Short press and long press functions

The Leikr watch utilizes 4 keys to navigate through the menu. Every key has a function when short pressed and a different function when long pressed. The functions of each key will change according to the screen and the position in the menu. Functions names: short press and long press functions are explicitly labeled with a text shown on the display in proximity of the key. A slash is placed between the name of the function of the short press and the name of the function of the long press. Here an example: Light/Zoom. When pressing the key: when pressing the key you can feel a vibration: release the key after the first vibration to access the short press function. If he key is kept pressed for a longer time, the Leikr watch vibrates a second time: release the key after the second vibration to access the long press function.

Powering on and powering off

Powering on: the Leikr watch is powered on by pressing the power key (Upper left Key 1, marked with the power logo). When powering on the device vibrates and the screen light turns on for a second. The Leikr logo appears on the screen. Powering off: to power off the device press simultaneously the power key (Upper left Key 1, marked with the power logo) and the key opposite to the power key (upper right Key 2). Release the keys immediately after you feel the vibration.

Sync and data transfering

To sync the Leikr watch  and transfer data between the watch, the Leikr web page, Endomondo and Strava, press the two keys located on the opposite side of the Leikr logo  (Upper left Key 1 and lower left Key 4). When syncing the watch: 1) the new settings from the Leikr  web-page are uploaded to the watch (if any available), 2) the new training sessions saved on the watch in “Training History” will be downloaded to Endomondo and Strava (if any available), 3) the new Leikr firmware and Leikr SW updates are uploaded to the watch (if any available). The syncing procedure can be successfully launched from the watch when the watch is in the range of a registered Wi-Fi, there is no need to place the watch in the charging station or to do any manual transfer of files. Release the keys immediately after you see the syncing screen appearing.

Navigating a menu list

The logic to go through a menu list is consistent through-out the whole menu. A short press of the “Select/back ” key always opens the menu item which is highlighted by a blue box. Long pressing the “Select/Back” brings back to the upper level of the menu. Scroll up and down the menu list by pressing the keys “Up” and “Down”.

Toggling through the digits ( distance, time and calories settings, on the watch)

Both in “Settings” menu and “Training targets” menu there are numerical fields that can be modified through the watch keys. A number can be modified by toggling through the digits. Select the line you want to modify by pressing the keys “Up” or “Down”. The box of the line currently selected is blue. If the line contains a number that can be modified, pressing the key “Select” will highlight the first digit to the right. Increase or decrease the value by pressing the keys “Up” or “Down”. Press select to move to the next digit to the left. Once you have walked through all the digits of the number, the next select key press will bring you out of the number and back to the menu item.
