The settings won’t let me put a semicolon between the minutes and the seconds for the pace setter.
I just installed ConnectIQ app 1.1.3 for android. It appears to "fix" the ability to enter special characters for alphanumeric settings. It however created a different problem in that my app does not like settings saved with ConnectIQ app version 1.1.3. When I try to run the app after saving the settings, it shows the splash screen then shuts down. Then the watch will hang on the splash screen for the next CIQ widget run. It does not matter the widget when it hangs. The only way to fix is to hold power until the watch turns off. After uninstalling the widget and using GCM. I do not see the same issue. Reinstalling with with ConnectIQ and saving the settings causes the watch to crash again. The only fix is to uninstall and reinstall and save the settings with GCM. I am running the 8.75 beta FW on the F5Plus, but I did not have any problems until saving settings with the new version of the ConnectIQ app.
Please see the linked video.
I use a string parameter to capture email address for registration verification. Initially I configured the settings file as type=email. After having lots of issues with users getting crashes after saving the settings depending on which app was used, j switched the settings file to type=alphanumeric. I trialed it with a beta build and everything worked fine. The day I roll out the change to my widget, the previous build of the CIQ app store was released which prevented the ability to use (.), (@), and (-) characters in the string. GCM still works fine. In my case besides not working on the CIQ app store complaints, I have had much lower reports of the widget crashing after applying the settings when using alphanumeric vs email type.
Besides this bug there are a few other anomalies with setting that I have yet to figure out. Behaviors can very depending on what tool is used with differences on how the data is validated based on the settings type. Once I can find a pattern, I will open another bug report.
