No.1 G8 is MT 2502 smartwatch which is supposed to support VXP face. But as you read in the previous post about G8, there are many new features in No.1 G8, like blood pressure, three modes, outdoor functions(air-pressure, temp, UV), etc. There are too many new features which take up the storage space, there is no more space for vxp faces.
A MT2502 watch doesn’t support vxp face? That’s crazy. So we decide to develop a new firmware for the vxp faces, but we can’t increase the storage, we must cut some features to release the storage. The SIM card feature/mobile data will be banned in the new firmware, that means you can’t use it as an independent phone(but bluetooth calling is OK).
To use this firmware, you need to upgrade to the latest firmware manually. How to make a firmware upgrade, please check this tutorial https://chinawatchs.com/mtk-smartwatch-update-the-proper-way/ And be aware, the battery life should not be less than 80%.
I just downloaded and installed several watchface, both of them work well. But this firmware still need some optimizations, so please wait for a few days. Any news I’ll let you know.
Good news! The new firmware which supports vxp face releases! You can download it here. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4Ay_s354RnceGV0OGdlMzE1TUU
And sorry about the convenience, if the sim feature is needed, we’ll keep on working, later we’ll develop the new firmware which supports both of the vxp face and sim feature.
