  1. During new setup the watch, the power cut off and i cannot on the watch now even with the reset button at the back also nothing show on the screen. What else i can do??

  2. I cracked my screen… Couldn’t find a replacement so I sent it to LG. 80 bucks later I got it back and this hidden menu is enabled. The watch just doesn’t work the same now. A couple of watch faces are missing. Pretty laggy and battery sucks. The OS is version KKWT. How do I disable this “hidden menu”?

  4. Hi, thanks, Glad to know you find the solution.

    So just swipt left, I can see the factory option?

    How about this:

    1 Touch anywhere on the background of the screen. You’ll see a white screen with a red “g.”

    2 Touch again anywhere on the screen to see a menu of things you can do.

    3 Scroll until you see Settings .

    4 Touch Settings .

    5 Scroll until you see Reset device , then touch to reset.

  5. No worries, I found out elsewhere: do it when the watch is On. When the power button is displayed, swipe left until the factory option shows up.

  6. 1 Touch anywhere on the background of the screen. You’ll see a white screen with a red “g.”

    2 Touch again anywhere on the screen to see a menu of things you can do.

    3 Scroll until you see Settings .

    4 Touch Settings .

    5 Scroll until you see Reset device , then touch to reset.

    For another way to get to Settings, say “Ok Google, Settings” from your active watch

  8. For some reason my watch is stuck on demo mode… i cannot connect it to the phone… i have no acces to the setting menu nor to the hidden menu… do you have any idea?
