The secret you may not know about 2nd IWO smart watch 74

the shiningintl 2nd IWO smart watch is lots different with the 1st generation, do you really know how to operate it ?it is hot selling on official store or aliexpress store,  here is some tips to for better understand this fashion smart watch like apple

1. What should I do after I got the watch?

you should go to the appstore to find the MediaTEK smart device app, and install that app before you can correctly run your watch, otherwise you will find issues such Bluetooth connect error or messenger sync error.
2. what the wireless charger light indicate?

the wireless charger green light will slowly blink when in charging, if the connection to the watch is not correct, it will fast blink, in normal charging,it will slowly blink until it is full charged, and then the green light will always be green.

here is also video about it ,please refer to youtube 2nd gen charging video
3. How can I know the battery percentage left?

when your smart watch connected to the smart phone with Bluetooth, when the battery percentage change, the watch will send feedback the percentage to the smart phone, you can view that message on smart phone notifications area. Or you can view that in the watch notifications. But some times the feedback is not so correct,
4. How to switch clock face?

in the clock face screen, long press the screen will appear the clock face selection screen, slide left or right to select your favorite clock face, and then confirm, that is really easy
5. What those icons on the digital face mean?

shiningintl 2nd generation smart watch icons
A.the headset mode icon: this icon like a headset, it mean the smart watch like a headset of your smart phone, all sound of your phone will stream to the watch speaker, such as calling ,music and notification sound
B.Bluetooth icon: this icon means whether the smart watch has connect to smart phone with Bluetooth, it is colorful when connected, black and white when not paired.
C. messenger Icon: it mean there is new unread messenger in your phone, if you go the message , this icon will disappear automatically
D.notification icon: the notification icon mean unread notification exist, if view notifications ,that icon will disappear automatically.
6. Where can I find the notifications again?

go to the menu screenshiningintl 2nd gen smart watch notification
7. Can I install other apps by myself?

after you install the MediaTEK smart device, there you can find that there is “my applications”

install app to smart watchinstall apps to smart watch
8. How to take the heart rate checking?
A. the watch close your skin tightly,you just feel comfortable for the touch
B. keep still while in test progress
C. take multiple tests and access the correct range.

9. how can I change the match to the watch? can it support what kind of bands?


this smart watch is 42mm watch like apple watch, it is  compatible to all straps and bands for apple watch 42mm , you can select your favorite bands in shiningsmart accessories  or find a whole design selling with gorgous bands

10. Why the notification show the battery is 100%,should I disrupt the charging right now?

No, the battery has physical attribution of power storage, even it is full from the notification, it doesn’t mean it is full really, you should charge to the green light to long lighting without blinking.
11. How to stop the ring tone of the phone?

If you don’t want to use the ring tone notification from phone, instead of it with the watch ring tone, then go to settingsoundringtone, it prompts that “disconnect BT music?” click “yes” to confirm, it will stop smart phone ringtone, you can select ringtone1 to ringtone 3

how to set smart watch ringtone

12.we found that the back light of the screen is not the same, some place on the screen is a little brighter than other place , is it normal?


yes, it is normal in screen.As the the watch screen is small, we can install more back light LED behind the screen,and the LED back light is normally close to the screen, the location of LED will a litter brighter than other place, it is obvious in the glass system, just take a example, if you take a light behind a window glass, you will find that some place is brighter than other place,  it is the same theory to the watch screen, so in theory the LED location behind the screen is more or less different to other place, it is normal.

    I think i have this watch ordered from aliexpress.
    I installed the mediatek app on my iPhone, but it is a bit different, because the application tab is not available.
    The watch is working but i like some other stuff to work.

    On mij watch the following information is available:

    Version W51_B_V1_160629
    Release time 2016/06/29 17:33
    Is this the last version or is there another firmware available?

    I really like to have the dutch language.

    I own the IWO Watch 2 for 1 month and it is now no longer charging, making it unusable. Symptom is : When I put the watch on the charger, the green led begin to slowly fade bling as normal. But after 1 minute, the green led start flashing rapidly as saying that it is not correctly charging. The watch no longer start as the battery is then out of power :-(.
    Any help from you would be welcome.

  • Tere Cardoso

    Good morning.
    I just purchased a 2-generation Iwu. My question is, why, you do not have the “thermometer” or “UV” app. When I have seen videos of iwo 2 generation of the month of September that if they bring it?
    I would like you to clarify those doubts.

  • Léa

    J’ai suivi le tutoriel afin de raccorder ma montre à mon Iphone et tout fonctionne mise à part les messages. Lorsque je vais dans l’application sur ma montre m’est indiqué:”actuellement non disponible” systématiquement.
    De plus, à partir de l’application Mediatek SmartDevice de mon Iphone, je ne peut pas télécharger d’autres applications.
    Pouvez-vous m’indiquer la marche à suivre, afin que toutes les applications de la montre soient fonctionnelles.

  • Jaime

    Thank you very much !!!!

  • Oguzhan Ayvaz

  • Ekain

    Hello, in the first version, it was an option to put the apple logo…
    is in the second this possible? In the first one, was by marking some numbers in the “calling” place…
    And a second question:
    This second version, has a sleep tracker? thanks

  • juan

    Please we want a solution to thermometer and UV sensor since when we buy the new product this is not indicated as well as the same functions as in the iwo 1 as being able to update the software and to be able to connect with the computer in order to podificar things.
    Please do everything possible because we are many people who have bought this rejoj and we want these things nhagannos case since it is not only a sale of 1 clock but also this would encourage many more people to buy this watch but not buy it by Fault of these details.
    Do not forget buyers

  • Tere Cardoso

    Very good days.
    I would like to know, what function does it have, the “File Manager” folder, which appears in the 2-generation iwo.
    Thank you very much.

  • Filip

    The watch works fine but when i try to actually pair it with my phone its gets quite problematic. The watch keeps connecting and disconnecting from the iphone with intervalls of 10-15 seconds, which is extremly annoying. If i go to settings i can se how it goes of and on. Ive had this watch for about 2 weeks and its been working fine until this morning. Its like the app itself is messing with my bluetooth signal since everything works fine until i pair it with the app, which is a must. Tried Mediatek app and Fundo wear, both give the same problem.

    Many thanks!

  • juan

    The second generation iwo I stayed the screen that turns on and off and a lot of people have happened the same as me by mistake. Are going to release the cable to be able to update the second generation iwo and provide the firmware? We are many people who have the clock unusable and we would like some sensitivity on their part and we would like to buy that cable and provide us the firmware and that has to be possible since you somehow put it to the clock when they manufacture it. On behalf of all the people I ask a little sensitivity and remove the cable for sale and provide us with the firmware to be able to arrange this fantastic watch.
    Please be so kind to give me an answer and do not leave us in oblivion
