Tools to reset a Metawatch?


Recommended Posts

Today my Metawatch Strata decided to completely lock up after charging, and now I can't reset it.

I even tried the firmware updater (my Strata runs firmware 1.5.3, and there is 1.5.5 available), it tries to query the watch, but fails.

So, does anyone have a tool that can reset the Metawatch via the charge / update clip so I can avoid opening it?

Thanks @@bluehash, but I'm not sure it's going to help.

Why?

Because I tried to update (flash) my Starta while it was frozen - it did not work, the updater program couldn't talk to the watch. And secondly, if a developer clip would help, I don't have one and they are out of stock now.

Is it possible to make a simple pogo pin bed and connect any of the Launchpad XDS debuggers to it?

Possible perhaps to make a pogo pin bed, but not easy. About the Launchpad debuggers, I don't know.

The "best" solution (for some values of "best") would perhaps be if somebody reverse-engineered the charge clip circuit (there is a MSP430 in the charge clip, I'm told). Perhaps the charge clip and the developer clip only differ in software. If so, an open source replacement for the software in the charge / developer clips could be written.

As it is, this is only speculation at this point.

And charge clips is out of stock too.
