The COROS PACE 3 offers a seamless and interactive touchscreen experience. To make the most of this feature, it's essential to understand the available touchscreen settings and how to use them effectively. In this guide, we'll walk you through the touchscreen settings and provide some useful tips for optimal usage.
Touch Screen Settings:
Always On: This setting allows you to keep the touch screen active at all times. With "Always On," you can effortlessly scroll through widgets, access workout data pages, and interact with the watch during navigation. It provides constant touchscreen availability for your convenience.
Navigation and Activity Interface: In this mode, the touch screen is turned off for widgets, but it remains active for scrolling on the route navigation page and workout data pages. This setting strikes a balance to offer touchscreen functionality when you need it most and turns off when you don't need it.
Navigation Only: As the name suggests, this setting limits touchscreen usage to navigation purposes exclusively. It ensures that the touch screen is only active when you're using the navigation feature.
Force Touch and Delay:
The touch screen on the COROS PACE 3 utilizes force touch technology, which means you need to use the skin of your finger for scrolling, rather than a fingernail or other objects. This design choice enhances the durability of the touch screen and ensures consistent performance.
It's important to note that the COROS PACE 3 employs a Memory-in-Pixel (MIP) screen display type, which can result in a slight delay compared to what you might experience with a smartphone or tablet. This reduced sensitivity is intentionally, designed to prevent accidental scrolling when wearing long sleeves, or jackets, or when brushing the screen against various objects and surfaces.
Tips for Optimal Touch Screen Usage:
Finger Sensitivity: To navigate the touch screen effectively, use the skin of your finger, applying gentle pressure. Avoid using your fingernails or any sharp objects, as they may damage the screen.
Be Patient: Due to the MIP display, there might be a slight delay in responsiveness. Give it a moment to register your touch and scroll smoothly.
Choose the Right Setting: Depending on your activity and preferences, select the appropriate touchscreen setting (Always On, Navigation and Activity Interface, or Navigation Only) to optimize your watch's performance and battery life.
