Will an app be available for other smart watches?

  • While your Apple Watch's default settings will work great for the Traeger Apple Watch App, we do recommend updating your Wake Screen settings to accommodate the app's load time. Apple's default wake 'ON TAP' setting is 15 seconds. Updating that to 70 seconds will allow more leeway after the app's loading time.
    1. Open the Watch app on your phone.
    2. Select Display Settings.
    3. Select Wake Screen.
    4. Select Wake for 70 Seconds.
