Just got my GMW B5000 yesterday and love it. I know you can use the app to sync the time on the watch, but I don't think I'll be using the app much going forward. I explored it a bit and it's fine, I just don't care about the features it offers. Since it runs in the background constantly and uses a bit of battery life, I decided to force quit the app. Since doing so, my watch hasn't synced with MB6. I know it won't sync with the app over bluetooth when the app has been closed via force quitting, but why wouldn't it have synced with MB6 last night? It's possible I just didn't get a good enough signal last night, so is there a way to trigger a manual sync with MB6 like on other watches (the Rangeman 9400 for example)?
I have looked online and tried downloading the manual from Casio and G Central, but the pdf never loads. If there is no other way to force an MB6 sync, then I guess I'll just let it try to do one automatically each night (assuming it is actually TRYING) and if it never works, I can just use the app once a week to sync it or something and then force quit out of it.
Also, a minor complaint: Kind of disappointed that you have to use the app to see the battery life and the only indicator you get on the watch is a "LOW" when it gets really low. Not a huge deal though, still love the watch...
EDIT: In case it matters, I have not deleted the pairing or done a reset on the watch. Maybe if the watch knows it is paired with a device it automatically opts out of trying for MB6 syncs?
