According to the foreign media 9to5Mac, the new Infograph (text module dial) in the Apple Watch Series 4 brings a cool dial to the user, and also causes some users to fall into the cycle of watching the watch.
Before explaining this bug, you need to understand the concept of a daylight saving time. Daylight saving time is a system that artificially stipulates local time for energy conservation. The unified time used during the implementation of this system is called “summer time”. Generally, in the early summer of dawn, artificially adjusting the time by one hour can make people get up early and go to bed early, reduce the amount of illumination, and make full use of the lighting resources, thus saving lighting power. The specific regulations for each country adopting daylight saving time are different.
In this eleventh holiday, Australia just entered the daylight saving time, and after such a fine-tuning of the time, Apple Watch Series 4 users found that their watches did not adjust well, and there was a cycle restart failure.
Lei Feng.com (Public No.: Lei Feng) learned that Apple's new graphic module dial for its Apple Watch Series 4 can realize imaged information and convert various types of information into graphics or charts for presentation to users. The entire dial can display 9 blocks of information, including timers, temperature, schedule, date, Apple Music, fitness records, and more. In addition, the four corners of the dial are filled with a semi-arc progress bar. In the official demo dial, the four semi-arc progress bars from top to bottom are the countdown timer, weather, UV index and sunrise and sunset information.
It is also the graphic module dial that Apple has designed so well. Although it has as many as 8 complex functions, it ignores the problem of daylight saving time and cannot solve the 1 hour time change well, which causes the system to crash and fall into the trap. Cycle restart.
Specifically, the fitness function of the graphic module dial can draw a timeline graph of the day to display information such as exercise time, standing time, and the like. Although the exact fault has not been diagnosed, according to the 9to5Mac, the Apple Watch Series 4 has a cyclic restart until the battery is exhausted, mainly because of the time caused by daylight saving time. “One hour less”, the watch cannot draw 24-hour timeline chart.
According to Lei Feng.com, at present, Apple Watch Series 4 will resume normal work when the date is transferred to the next day. In addition, in order to avoid the trouble, some users chose to use the companion iPhone application to delete the teletext module dial function. The specific solution, Apple has to update the Apple Watch Series 4 software as soon as possible, and fix this bug.
