How to add the app to the Apple Watch
To add the app to your Apple Watch, first ensure that you are running at least LogTen version 2021.2 (you can check on your iPhone by tapping on More → Settings → About).

If the app is not downloaded to your Apple Watch automatically, you can manually install it by opening the Watch app on your iPhone, tapping on My Watch, and scrolling until you see LogTen.

You can find out more about the process in the official support article from Apple, which you can find here: Download apps on your Apple Watch 
How to log a flight
When you open the Apple Watch app, you will be presented with a screen to start the logging process whenever you are ready:

When you tap the "Fly Now" button, you will be taken to a screen like in the screenshot below, where you can tap the large button to log the time.
This screen will have:
  • A large button indicating the time being logged/edited
  • A stopwatch, reading the elapsed Total Time
  • A location indicator
    • If the times are Off/In (take off, landing), a sun or moon will also appear to indicate a day/night take off/landing. 
    • If the location is unavailable, you might see an "Unavailable" message. It is still possible to manually add the location from your iPhone.
    • If coordinates are available, but the watch was unable to communicate with the phone, or there were no nearby airports, the location indicator will show "Coordinates". Tapping this will slide open a screen that displays the latitude and longitude.
To commence logging, tap the large button. Once tapped, a time picker will appear, allowing you to fine tune the time if needed.
If it all looks good, or you are logging things on the go, the time will automatically save after 10 seconds. This will automatically move to the next time (in order: Out, Off, On, In), although you can swipe left and right as desired. 
Swipping back will allow you to edit the time by holding the large button:

This process is repeated for all four OOOI Times (Out, Off, On, In). Once you have logged your IN time, a Summary screen is presented. 

When you reach the Summary screen, you will see:

  • The OOOI Times (Out/Off/On/In) that have been logged (to edit them, simply tap the relevant box and a time picker will appear)
  • The "Pilot Flying" toggle, which you can quickly turn on, if appropriate
  • Departure/Arrival places (with a sun, or moon icon next to them based on whether it was a Day or Night take off or landing)
  • Total Time, Air Time, Night Time, and Distance of the flight.

If everything looks good, tap "Done" and the flight will be sent to your iPhone:

  • Long-tap the screen, which will enter edit mode
  • Tap edit

  • Tap the position where you want LogTen, and select it from the list

  • Hi georg.lickl. Thanks for liking the Apple Watch! We are aware of this issue and looking into it. The issue is only a display issue on the watch, when the flight syncs to the phone it has all the correct times.

  • Hi alexanderxespinoza

    Glad to hear you are liking the new watch feature. Regarding the location issue, on your iPhone go to: Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Check that:

    - Location Services is turned on;
    - Apple Watch Faces is set to While Using.

    It may also help to enable all System Services (scroll down to the bottom of the same screen > System Services > check that all desired services are enabled).

    If you are still having an issue after the above is tried, unpair it with my iPhone, restart the Apple Watch, and then re-pair it.

    As to the extra flight issue, we are aware of this and working on it. The issues stems from flights created on the watch and then deleted on the iPhone. The watch keeps trying to sync the flight (although with slightly different info depending on other factors).

    A workaround in the meantime is to keep the extra flight. You can completely change all the data to a real flight. This should break the cycle.

  • Quick question…really liking this feature, but the location is always “unavailable.” I gave LogTenPro on my phone access to my location when using the app. Is there something else I can do to help get locations?

    Also, it seems that when ever I log a real flight, there is another incomplete flight also logged on the same day. Is this something you’ve seen and is there a way to fix it? Thanks a ton.

  • I like the watch app, but somehow it displays a wrong blocktime on the summary page (eg. out at 07:16, in at 07:19 it shows blocktime of 23:56.

  • Hi Barry - Before a flight is done, the watch app will display a Summary Screen that scrolls up and down. The summary screen should include both the Block time (Out to In) and Air Time (Off to On). If you only see Air Time in this summary screen it sounds like maybe you only entered the Off and On times? but not the Out and In times? If you need further help please feel free to contact our Support team directly at support@coradine.com
