What smartwatch is?
A smartwatch is a mobile device; it consists of a package, including the computer and the display, attached to a bracelet. Different models have different features, such as time display, voice calls, pedometer, GPS, heart pulse, music player etc. Some models, also called ‘watch phones’ (or vice versa), may have complete functionality of a typical smartphone.

I own smartwatch, what’s next?
Insert the SIM card into the watch. Depending on the model, the SIM card is inserted into the side slot or under the battery inside the device. In second case, we recommend installing the SIM card by an experienced person (watchmaker, GSM service point or a person experienced with Li-polymer batteries, commonly referred to as LiPo). After restarting the watch, it’s ready to be registered in the MyFrap!
How to register smartwatch in MyFrap! network?
You need to install the MyFrap! app on your Android phone (Google Play) or iPhone (AppStore). Start MyFrap! application, select the “Register new device” option from the side menu. Click the “Add device” button to open registration wizard. Five configuration SMSes will be send from your phone to the watch. The process may take a while (on some phones even 3-4 minutes), so please be patient. If your watch has already been registered in the MyFrap! Network, you do not need to register it again – just use “Invite your friends or device” option from side panel. The registration dialog:
SIM card has internet access, but I’m facing registration issues
Most issues come from wrong SIM card configuration or watch issues. Before you start registration process, make sure:
- SIM card is mounted in your watch,
- SIM card has no PIN,
- SIM card has internet access,
- Watch is turned on
If you have made sure that the Internet is available when a SIM-card is in the phone, and the watch still does not run, you may need to set the correct APN. Usually, GSM operators provide APN settings automatically, but not for all SIM-cards.
To set the APN, send the SMS command in such format:
Please contact your GSM operator to provide you apnname, login and password.

What data MyFrap! collect?
The location of the watch is not accurate, is it a mistake?
This is not a mistake. Watches calculate location on the map from two sources: GPS satellites and GSM stations. While accuracy of the location based on GPS is about few meters, then accuracy of location based on GSM stations can be up to several hundred meters. Accuracy depends on the number of available GSM antennas in the area. Essentially, in large cities the accuracy of the GSM location is within a few dozen meters, but on the outskirts and in smaller towns it can reach up to several hundred meters or even more. When location is based on GSM stations, then icon will be crossed out as below:
