Getting Started
The first step in using your device is charging it. Unscrew the
cover knob over the USB adapter port to connect the device
to a USB port on your PC, or plug it into AC power with the
included adapter. Be sure that the adapter jack is plugged
all the way into the watch’s port. While charging, the LED
Indicator will be solid red and flash blue. It will become solid
when the battery is full. Before first use, we suggest charging
the device for 4-6 hours.
To set the time on the watch face of your device, gently pull
the Time Set knob out slightly from the watches body. Turn the
knob to adjust the time, and then push it back in.

To view your files on your computer, we suggest using VLC
Player. The most recent version can be downloaded at no
cost from http://www.videolan.org.
To power the device on, press the Power/Video button for
2-3 seconds. The LED Indicator will turn purple for a few
seconds while the device boots and then blue to indicate it
is in Standby mode. To power the device off, hold down the
Power/Video button for 2-3 seconds. The LED will blink red
several times and go out.
The knob covering the microphone has a hole in it, which allows the
device to capture audio. This compromises its ability to withstand
moisture. If you require the device be waterproof, unscrew the knob
covering the microphone and replace it with the solid cover included in
the box. Using this watertight cover will inhibit the Spy Watch’s ability
to record audio.

Recording Video
Recording Audio
With the device in Standby Mode, press the Power/Video
button. The LED Indicator will blink blue 3 times, and then go
out to indicate that it is recording video. To stop recording and
save the current file, press the Power Video button twice. The
LED Indicator will return to solid blue.
In Standby Mode, hold down the Photo/Audio button for 2-3
seconds. The LED Indicator will blink red while the device
records audio. Press the button again to stop recording and
return to Standby.
Always be sure to stop recording before powering the device
off. If you do not, there is a risk of the file being corrupted.
Reviewing Files on a Computer
While in Standby Mode, press the Photo/Audio button. The
LED Indicator will blink red to indicate that it is taking a photo,
and return to solid blue when it has been stored.
To view your files on a computer, simply connect the device
via the supplied USB cord, making sure the device is powered
Off. It will connect as a removable drive, and depending on the
settings on your PC, it may automatically notify you that new
hardware has been detected. If so, select Open Folder to View
Files.

Setting Time and Date Stamp
If it is not automatically detected, click Start on your desktop. Select My Computer if you are using Windows XP, or
Computer if using Windows Vista or Windows 7. The device
should be listed as a Removable Disk under the Devices
With Removable Storage section. Open that drive, which will
contain a folder called DCIM. Within the DCIM folder will be
another folder named 100DSCIM. This folder will contain all
your recorded files.
As mentioned earlier, we suggest using VLC Player to play
back video files.

Setting the time and date stamp on your device is easy.
Simply create a .txt file on your computer and name it
“time”. In that file you will enter the datet and time in the
following format: year.month.day hour.minute.second Y or N.
(Ex. 2011.01.31 12.00.00 Y). Y means the time stamp will be
on. N will turn the time stamp off.
Once you’ve created the file, connect the device to your
computer via USB and save the .txt file to the device’s root
directory. When you connect the device to your computer, it
will be assigned a drive letter (ex. C:, D:, E:). When you open
that drive, you are in the root directory, or topmost level of
the drive.

After you have loaded the file, safely disconnect the device
from your computer, turn the device on and off, and the time
and date you loaded should appear on any new videos and
photos you record.
Troubleshootting
Problem: The device seems to have frozen and isn’t reacting
when any buttons are pressed.
Solution: This usually occurs if the device receives too many
commands in too short a time. To reset the device, press the
Power/Video and Photo/Audio buttons at the same time. The
device should be reset and power off.

Problem: When playing back my video, I can hear audio, but
have no video.
Solution: This most often occurs if your computer’s media
player is having trouble with your files. Try using VLC player,
which can be downloaded for free at http://www.videolan.org.
Problem: My video playback is “choppy” or “stuttering.”
Solution: If this is occurring, try copying the video files to your
PC. This happens when the file is too large to be played back
using your USB connection.

Root Directory: A root directory is the first directory on a drive
or disk. For example, when connecting a removable drive to
a Windows computer, it will be assigned a drive letter (ex. C:,
D:, E:). When opening that drive, the first window listing the
contents of the drive is the root directory.
USB Port: A USB port is a standard cable connection interface on personal computers and consumer electronics. USB
ports allow stand-alone electronic devices to be connected via
cables to a computer. USB can connect computer peripherals such as mice, keyboards, PDAs, gamepads and joysticks,
scanners, digital cameras, printers, personal media players,
flash drives, and external hard drives.
