Quick Start Guide

Get started with our Quick Start Guide.


TURNING ON YOUR LOOP

Turning my Loop On and Off

The power Button on your Loop is located on the bottom cover. Hold the power button for a short time (Approx 5 seconds) to turn the watch on or off.

Holding the button for a long press (20 seconds) will "soft reset" the watch, you should feel it vibrate.

Simply douple tap anywhere on the screen face to wake the watch up.

Touch screen not responding? Clean watch face using a dry cloth. Completely power down your Loop by holding down the power button for 20 seconds to do a soft reset. Restart your watch.

CHARGING & BATTERY

How Do I Charge my Loop?

The supplied charging cradle magnetically attaches to the rear of your Loop watch.

Plug one end of the supplied USB-C cable into the charging dock and the other end into a 5V/1Amp USB power source.

Once the watch is receiving charge, the screen will illuminate and display a charging symbol for 5 seconds.

Why isn't my Loop Charging?

If Spacetalk Loop does not appear to charge, follow these steps:

  1. Inspect the four gold contacts on the Charging Cradle and on the rear of Spacetalk Loop for damage.
  2. Ensure Spacetalk Loop is seated correctly on the charging cradle and the charging cradle is not upside down. The four gold contacts on the Charging Cable should line up with the four gold contacts on the back of Spacetalk Loop. 
  3. Check to make sure the USB power source is working. This can be tested by plugging in another charging cable for a phone or other device to ensure this can send charge.
  4. Clean the gold contacts on the Charging Cradle and on Spacetalk Loop with a dry cloth. Ensure they are dry before proceeding.
  5. Try to hold down the Power Button for 20 seconds to perform a soft reset.

 

If you continue to experience charging issues, please reach out to our Support Team.

How do I View my Battery Level?

You can check the battery level in a variety of ways. To check the battery level on the watch, swipe down at the clock screen to see the battery level in the top right corner.

To check the battery level of the watch from the Spacetalk app, the battery level will be displayed next to the device name on the map screen. Your Loop will also send notifications to the Spacetalk app when the battery level reaches 15% or below as well as when the battery goes flat.

How can I maximise the battery life of my Loop?

Ensure your Loop is fully charged overnight to a 100% battery capacity.

Short location update intervals (e.g. 5 minutes) are not recommended for day to day use as they will consume the battery faster. For the best battery performance, we suggest using your Location on Demand feature in combination with a longer update interval or interval updates turned off.

Keeping your watch's software up to date will also ensure you can benefit from the latest battery optimisations.

If you are using a pre-paid SIM card, it is also recommended to check that your SIM card has credit balance on it as battery life can be impacted due to data connectivity issues.

NETWORK & WIFI CONNECTION

No Network Connection

You can check the network signal strength on your Loop by swiping from the top to bottom on the touch screen. The network signal strength and the network name should be displayed. If it isn't, follow these steps:

  • Check that flight mode is not active.
  • Check that the SIM card has been inserted correctly.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 20 seconds to perform a soft reset.
  • Confirm the SIM card has been activated correctly with your provider. If in doubt, remove the SIM card from your watch and test in another device or phone.
  • Check that voice, SMS and data are working.Confirm the SIM card has valid credit. If necessary, recharge the SIM using the provider's recharge process.
  • If available, try another SIM card in your Loop.

Network Error Messages

'No SIM' messages: The watch is unable to recognise a SIM card within the SIM card reader.

We recommend turning the watch off, taking the SIM card out, ensuring there is no damage to the SIM card or the watch itself. Re-insert the SIM card into the watch and power the watch back on.

If the watch is displaying signal bars and also 'No connection' on the clockface, to narrow down the source of the issue, navigate to the information menu on the watch by swiping down and selecting the settings then information and select 'Software Update'. This will prompt the watch to use the SIM card's mobile data to check for the latest software. Dependent on the result of this, please see below for next action:

'Your Spacetalk is already on the latest software': The watch is able to access sufficient mobile data from the SIM card. If the watch is still showing 'no connection' ensure that the SIM also has sufficient credit allowance. This can be done by making a call to the watch, letting it go through as a missed call and returning the call.

If after the above troubleshooting does not resolve the 'No connection' message displayed on the watch, contact our support team.

Poor Coverage

'The Spacetalk Loop has been specifically designed to operate on all 3G and 4G networks in Australia and New Zealand. If you are experiencing poor coverage, check with your service provider about the coverage available in your area.

VIDEO AND AUDIO CALLING

Why are my incoming calls rejected?

Your Loop watch will only receive incoming calls and SMS/MMS messages only from people listed in the watch's contact list. To check your contacts in the Spacetalk app, tap on the 'Home' button, then tap on the device, and tap 'Watch Contacts'. You may also choose to block calls from unknown numbers. This is set by default but guardians can choose to disable this feature to allow all incoming calls and messages.

If your number is listed in the contacts on your Loop watch and your call is rejected, please check the caller ID settings of the calling mobile phone. Your Loop detects who is calling from the incoming caller ID and determines if it will permit the call or reject the call. No caller ID will cause automatic call rejection from the watch.

My Audio levels are low?

You can adjust audio levels from your watch speaker. While in a call, the volume control appears on the Loop's screen. Adjust the volume using this control. Additionally ensure the screen protector is not covering the speaker port.

My Loop does not ring, only vibrates?

This is most likely due to the ring volume level being turned down or off. From the clock screen, swipe from top to bottom to reveal the control centre. Tap 'Sound' to reveal the volume slider.

RESETTING MY LOOP WATCH

Soft Reset

Pressing the Power Button on the underside of Loop for 20 seconds will perform a soft reset and will not wipe any user data.

Factory Resetting

To perform a hard factory reset, from the clock screen, swipe from top to bottom to select the 'settings' menu. Tap 'Settings' scroll through the list to 'Factory Reset'. The watch requires a PIN number to avoid accidental reset. The PIN number is the last four digits of the IMEI number. The IMEI number can be found in the Information menu.

Important: Factory reset will wipe all user data including pictures and videos that may have been recorded. If you wish to save these, we recommend sending these from the watch to a mobile phone prior to performing a factory reset. After your Loop has been reset, the initial set-up procedure and watch pairing with the Spacetalk App will need to be repeated. If your Loop has been paired previously with the same account, when performing the pairing process the Spacetalk app will allow the apps previous settings to be restored.

CONTACTS

How do I add contacts to my Loop?

An unlimited number of contacts can be added to your Loop watch. Contacts are added in the Spacetalk app. To do this tap on the 'Home' button, then tap on the device. Under 'Watch Contacts' tap on the plus symbol to add a new contact.

During set-up, a contact can be selected from your list of contacts on your smartphone or by adding a new contact. The name entered in this menu will be the name which will come up on the watch to call/message the contact.

Contacts can also be flagged as emergency contacts for use when the Spacetalk's SOS function is activated. Emergency contacts will appear in the watch contacts list with a red icon to the right of the contact name.

 

Is the Loop locked to Spacetalk Mobile?
