6 Wrist PDA User Guide
About This Guide
Welcome! This guide describes all you need to know about using
your Wrist PDATM watch and the applications that come with it.
Before using your watch as a personal digital assistant (PDA), you
may want to look at the first two chapters of this guide to learn about
its basic features and how to write on the screen using the built-in
handwriting software. Then see chapter 4 for details on using the
main applications: Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and Memo
Pad.
After you become familiar with your watch’s basic features, you can
use this guide as a reference for less common tasks, and also as a
source of information if you have problems operating the watch.
NOTE: To set up your Wrist PDA, follow the instructions in the
Getting Started booklet.

Using the handwriting software
You can use the stylus and Jot® handwriting software to write on the
screen. This lets you enter all letters, numbers, punctuation, and
symbols found on a standard keyboard.
The strokes are different from those used on other Palm Powered
handhelds. Jot lets you write more naturally, using standard upperand lowercase printed letters in most cases. Jot recognizes various
strokes as well as most Graffiti® characters. The Jot application,
tutorial, and option settings are available in the English language
only.
Various ways of writing the letter A.
Use the method most natural for you.
NOTE: Uppercase letters are formed by drawing a character
across the middle of the screen, not by drawing a character that
looks like an uppercase letter (see page 24).

General Guidelines for Jot Writing
Follow these guidelines to successfully learn and use Jot writing:
• To achieve 100% accuracy, practice drawing characters
exactly as they appear in the tables later in this chapter.
• The heavy dot on each shape shows where
to start the stroke. Some characters have
similar shapes, but different starting and
ending points. Always start the stroke at the
heavy dot. (Do not draw the heavy dot; it is
there only as a guideline.)
Begin stroke here
• The Jot writing strokes for letters closely resemble letters of
the standard English alphabet, both uppercase and
lowercase. Most characters require only a single stroke.
When you lift the stylus from the screen, your watch
recognizes and displays the character immediately.
For multi-stroke characters, a temporary character appears
after the first stroke, to show that the stroke was recognized.
For example, after the first vertical stroke of “t”, a temporary
“l” appears. There is a short time period, during which you
must draw the second stroke. Otherwise the temporary
stroke is recorded.
Wrist PDA User Guide 23
Wri t i ng on th e Sc re e n
Using the handwriting software
• The screen is divided into two parts, one for lowercase letters
and one for numbers. You must begin letter strokes on the
left side, and number strokes on the right.
NOTE: To turn on the screen-dividing mark (shown below),
select and open
Jot and make sure Show mode mark is
checked.
Dividing mark
Write lowercase
letters on this side
Write numbers
on this side
• Jot writing automatically capitalizes the first letter of a new
record or sentence. To write additional capital letters, draw a
lowercase letter, but start the stroke on the left side of the
screen and write across the dividing mark in the middle.
To write Jot letters:
1.
Tap the screen where you want to write text, for example, on a line
next to a time in Date Book.
NOTE: A blinking cursor must appear onscreen before you can
begin writing text.
2.
Use the tables on the following pages to find the stroke shape for
the letter you want to write. For example, the stroke shown below
creates the letter n.
Lift stylus here.
Start stroke at
heavy dot.
3.
Position the stylus in the left side of the screen.
24 Wrist PDA User Guide
W ri ti n g on th e Sc re e n
Using the handwriting software
4.
Start your stroke at the heavy dot, and draw the stroke shape as it
appears in the tables.
5.
Lift the stylus from the screen at the end of the stroke shape.
Your watch recognizes your stroke immediately and displays the
letter at the insertion point onscreen. As soon as you lift the stylus
from the screen, you can begin the stroke for the next character you
want to write.
Jot tips
When using Jot writing, keep these tips in mind:
• For greater accuracy, draw letters with large strokes; strokes
that nearly fill the screen are easily interpreted.
• To delete characters, set the insertion point to the right of the
character you want to delete, and draw the Backspace
stroke (a line from right to left).
• Write at natural speed. Writing too slowly can produce errors.
• Do not write at a slant (like italics). Keep vertical strokes
parallel to the sides of the screen.
• When letters and numbers can be written using two different
strokes, use the one that is easier for you.
• Press firmly.

Using ShortCuts
To select the text you want to edit, do one of the following:
• Double-tap a word to select the word.
• Triple-tap any word to select the entire line.
• To select several characters, words, or lines, tap and hold
with the stylus until you hear a beep. Then drag the stylus left
or right across the text you want to highlight, or drag up or
down to select multiple lines.
Using ShortCuts
ShortCuts let you quickly and easily enter commonly used words or
phrases. ShortCuts are similar to the Glossary or Autotext features
of some word processors. Jot writing comes with several predefined
ShortCuts. You can also create your own, for any words, letters, or
numbers.
You can create ShortCuts, with up to 45 characters, using ShortCut
preferences. For example, you can create a ShortCut for your name
or the header of a memo. All ShortCuts you create appear in
ShortCut Preferences, are available in any of your watch
applications, and are backed up on your computer when you
perform a HotSync operation.
Your watch includes these predefined ShortCuts:
• ds—Date stamp
• br—Breakfast
• me—Meeting
• ts—Time stamp
• lu—Lunch
• dts—Date/time
• di—Dinner
To use a ShortCut:
Draw the ShortCut stroke, followed by the
ShortCut character(s). When you draw the
ShortCut stroke, the ShortCut symbol appears at
the insertion point.

• All deletes all past, current, and future occurrences of this
event.
The event is updated or removed and you are returned to the Day
View where you started.
About scheduling repeating or continuous events
Keep these points in mind when scheduling repeating or continuous
events:
• If you change the start date, the end date automatically
changes to maintain the duration of the repeating event.
• If you change the repeat interval (e.g., daily to weekly), past
occurrences (prior to the day on which you change the
setting) are not changed, and your watch creates a new
repeating event.
• If you change the date of an occurrence (e.g., from January
14 to January 15) and apply the change to all occurrences,
the new date becomes the start date of the repeating event.
Your watch adjusts the end date to maintain the duration of
the event.
• If you change other repeat settings (for example, time, alarm,
private) and apply the change to all occurrences, your watch
creates a new event. The start date of this new event is the
day on which the setting is changed. Past occurrences (prior
to the day of the change) are not changed.
• If you apply a change to a single occurrence (e.g., time), that
occurrence no longer shows the Repeat icon.

When an audible alarm sounds, you see the Reminder screen
where you can respond to an alarm.
To use the Reminder screen, tap one of the following:
• OK: Makes the reminder go away, with
no further notification.
• Snooze: Switches to the application
that was running when the alarm went
off, and returns to the Reminder screen
after five minutes. You cannot change
this time interval, but you can go back
to the Reminder screen right away by
tapping the blinking indicator in the top-left corner of the
screen (see page 50).
• Go To: Jumps to the event in Date Book. This cancels the
alarm, and there is no further notification.
Using the Reminders list
The Reminder screen changes to a Reminders list if an alarm
sounds for a second event before you dismiss or snooze a previous
alarm. If there is a blinking indicator in the top-left corner of the
screen, tapping it also displays the Reminders list (see page 50).
Each reminder contains the date, time and description of the event.
To use the Reminder list, tap one of the following:
• Text or icon. Go to that item in Date
Book and delete the item from the
Reminders list.
• Check box. Check off that item and
delete the item from the Reminders list.
• Snooze. Put the Reminders list to sleep
for five minutes and then display the
Reminders list again. To go directly to
the Reminders list without waiting, tap
the blinking alarm indicator (see page 50).
• Done. Close the Reminders list. The Reminders list does not
appear again, unless you tap the blinking alarm indicator.

Reminders list. Tap this button to erase a list of events that have
passed.
Understanding the blinking alarm indicator
A blinking alarm indicator appears in the top-left of the screen if:
• You tap Snooze
• You tap Done in the Reminders list
• A silent alarm has occurred
The indicator appears in two different states:
•
Blinking star: When there is at least one item in the list,
the star indicator blinks on and off until the list has been
emptied.
•
Blinking starburst: When a silent alarm occurs, a
starburst pattern appears, alternately flashing solid,
exploded, then off, until you view the new event.
Tapping the indicator opens the Reminders list, even if there is only
one item in the list.

Purging records
Over time, as you use Date Book and To Do List, you may
accumulate records that are no longer useful. For example, events
that occurred months ago remain in Date Book, and completed
tasks remain in To Do List.
Outdated records take up memory on your watch, so it is a good
idea to remove them by using Purge. If you think Date Book or To
Do List records might prove useful later, you can save them in an
archive file when you purge them from your watch.
Purging is not available in Address Book or Memo Pad; delete
records individually from these applications.

Using Security
Your watch includes a Security application that lets you set options
to protect entries from unauthorized use in a variety of ways.
The Security application lets you:
• Mask or hide entries you have defined as private. The Mask
option displays a gray bar over private records, and the Hide
option completely removes (hides) private records.
• Assign a password to viewing options to enhance security.
Without a password, private records are hidden until you set
the Security application to display them; with a password, you
must enter the password to view the private entries.
• Lock your Wrist PDA so that a password must be entered
before you can use the device again.
Marking records as private
In all the organizer applications, you can mark individual records as
private. Private records remain visible and accessible until you
select a security setting to mask or hide them.
If you assign a password to your device, you must enter it to view
records that you mark as private (see page 79).

Beaming Information
Your Wrist PDA watch is equipped with an IR (infrared) port that you
can use to beam information to another Palm OS device that is
close by and also has an IR port. The IR port is located on the side
of the watch, near the wristband.
You can beam the following information between Palm OS devices:
• The record currently displayed in Date Book, Address Book,
To Do List, or Memo Pad.
• All records in the currently displayed category in Address
Book, To Do List, or Memo Pad.
• A special Address Book record that you designate as your
business card, containing information you want to exchange
with business contacts.
• An application installed in RAM memory.
For best results, place the beaming devices approximately 1 to 18
inches apart and make sure the path between the two devices is
clear of obstacles. The beaming distances for some brands of
devices may be different.
Beaming a business card

Synchronizing With
Your Computer
HotSync technology lets you synchronize—exchange and update—
data between your Wrist PDA and your computer. The information
on your computer is stored in Palm Desktop software or another
personal information manager (PIM) such as Microsoft® Outlook®.
Changes you make on your watch or in your desktop PIM
application appear in both places after you synchronize. To
synchronize data, you must connect your watch to your computer
with the USB cable, or use infrared communication with your
computer’s IR port (if it has one).
Using Palm Desktop software
Palm Desktop software includes the same main applications as your
Wrist PDA watch: Address Book, Date Book, To Do List, and Memo
Pad. You can use the HotSync feature of this software to back up
and exchange data between your watch and your computer. It is a
good idea to back up your data in case something happens to the
data on your Wrist PDA watch.
With Palm Desktop software, you can do the following:
• Work with your Wrist PDA watch applications on your
computer. Palm Desktop software duplicates the Date Book,
Address Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad applications on
your watch, so that you can view, enter, and modify any data
stored on your watch. (See the online Help in Palm Desktop
software for information on using the software.)

Transferring data from another Palm OS device
• Back up and synchronize the data stored on your watch with
HotSync technology.
• Import and export data, so you can easily transfer data from
other desktop applications into any of your main applications
(see page 107).
• Install add-on applications onto your watch (see page 35).

Customizing HotSync application settings
For each application, you can choose how records are handled
during synchronization. These options are called a “conduit.” By
default, a HotSync operation synchronizes all files between the
watch and Palm Desktop software.
In general, you should leave the settings to synchronize all files. The
only reason you might want to change these settings is to overwrite
data on either your watch or Palm Desktop software, or to avoid
synchronizing a particular type of file because you do not use it.
In addition to the conduits for Date Book, Address Book, To Do List,
and Memo Pad, Palm Desktop software includes System and Install
conduits. The System conduit backs up the system information
stored on your watch, including ShortCuts. The Install conduit
installs applications on your watch.
To customize HotSync application settings:
1.
Click the
taskbar.

IR HotSync operations
IR HotSync operations
Your Wrist PDA is equipped with an infrared (IR) port that supports
the IrCOMM implementation of the standards for infrared
communication established by the Infrared Data Association (IrDA).
This means that you can beam data to any other device that
supports the IrCOMM implementation of the IrDA standards. Most
importantly, you can use the IR port to perform HotSync operations
without the USB cable. This is very useful if you travel with an
infrared-enabled laptop. You simply enable infrared communication
on your laptop and watch and follow the steps on page 107.
Preparing your computer for infrared
communication
To perform a HotSync operation using the IR port, the computer you
want to synchronize with must meet these requirements:
• The computer must support the IrCOMM implementation of
the IrDA standards.
• The computer must have an enabled infrared port built-in, or
an enabled infrared device attached to the computer.
• The computer must have an installed infrared driver.
Desktop computers are likely to require an infrared device attached
to a physical COM port. Laptops are likely to have a built-in IR port.
Check if your computer supports infrared communication
Infrared communication is built into the operating systems for many
systems. Check your computer’s documentation to determine if the
computer supports infrared communication.
To check the ports used for infrared communication:
1.
On the Windows taskbar, click Start, choose Settings, and then
choose Control Panel.
2.
Double-click Infrared.
3.
Click the Options tab.

The COM port displayed in the drop-down box is the port where your
infrared device is attached. It should be different from any port used
by HotSync Manager.
5.
Make a note of which port is listed as “Providing application
support.” You need this information to configure HotSync Manager
for infrared communication. This port is the simulated port. It is the
channel through which the actual infrared communication takes
place between your computer and your watch.
6.
Make sure all other check boxes in the Options tab are unchecked.
7.
Click Apply and OK.
Configuring HotSync Manager for infrared
communication
Next you need to go to HotSync Manager and specify the simulated
port used for infrared communication.
To configure HotSync Manager for infrared communication:

Battery Questions
Can my Wrist PDA use infrared for “beaming”
with another Palm device?
Yes, the Wrist PDA has an infrared port. It supports beaming data
(see page 91) and infrared HotSync operations (see page 105), at
distances no greater than one foot.
Battery Questions
How long does the battery last on my Wrist
PDA?
The rechargeable battery on your Wrist PDA should last 3 to 4 days
with an average of 30 minutes of PDA usage per day with no
infrared port beaming and no backlight usage. This duration may
vary depending on the amount of PDA usage, the temperature, and
other factors.
Can I lose my data if the screen goes blank
from not charging the battery?
After the screen goes blank, the watch should retain data for about
one day. Beyond this time, you need to synchronize your watch with
your PC to restore data.
How can I maximize the battery life?
There are several settings you can change on your Wrist PDA to
help extend battery life:
• In the Wrist PDA preferences, set the Watch Mode App to
None instead of Watch.
• In General preferences, set Auto-off After to the lowest
setting and set Beam Receive to Off.
