Why does the Revolar app need to be open in the background?

For iPhone® Users

Due to iOS app limitations, Revolar users are unable to send alerts when our app is force closed.

With the new firmware update (version 6.0.5), allows you to send alerts from your Revolar wearable, even if the app isn't running in the background. We still recommend keeping your Revolar app running in the background, and only relying on this new firmware functionality as a precaution. Please note that your Revolar wearable and paired smartphone must be in close proximity at the time an alert is triggered for this new feature to work reliably.

See our operating parameters to learn more. 


For Android Users

The Android version of the app is not affected.
