Why is Ditto not vibrating?

Press Vibrate Now Test. Ditto should vibrate 3 times.

Is the clip installed properly? See video here

Is the battery installed properly - positive (+) side DOWN. Is the battery power OK?

In the Wear Ditto App Menu, tap "Battery". Change the battery to a fresh CR1632 when you get a notification to do so. See video here

Is Ditto paired properly to Bluetooth through the Wear Ditto app? 

Call or text your smartphone. Ditto should vibrate in either case, even if the app is not running. See video here.

Are the desired notifications turned ON in the app?

Is the iPhone’s Do Not Disturb (DND) turned ON? Ditto will follow those times.

Is Ditto’s DND turned ON?

Do you have Favorite ON, but messages are coming from non-favorites?

    I bought this thing a week ago and it worked fine for a few days and now nothing. Tried redoing the install, deleted the app, reinstalled etc. and the app can't find the ditto. I really don't want to bother buying a new battery since I think the thing should last longer than a few days so what's the point. Any ideas?

    Hi J!

    Thank you for getting in touch with us!
    I'm sorry that you are having issues with your Ditto.

    I think I may know what is going could be that your Ditto is connected to your phone's bluetooth still, and/or that you have not restarted your phone in awhile.

    First, if you are using an iPhone, please go into the bluetooth menu. You should see Ditto with a blue "i" over it and it should say "connected".
    Press that Blue "i" and then choose "Forget this device"

    Once you have done that, please turn your phone off, wait about 2 minutes, and then turn it back on.
    When you turn it back on, go ahead and set up your Ditto again. Once you do that, everything should be up and running!

    Thank you for your time and have a great day!

    The Ditto works for all text notifications except for those sent by my fiancee (the only person I really want notifications from). I've tried turning Favorites on and off, removing and adding him to the Favorite list, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
