Since the launch of Echo, we’ve been overwhelmed with your excitement for the product. We’ve been working hard to improve the product with your feature requests and improvements. We recently released a device software update with new watchfaces, stopwatch, and UI improvements.
The number one question we get right now is,”When will Echo work with Android?” The answer is soon. We are now targeting a July release. Believe me, we want it as bad as you. We’re eager to spread Echo joy throughout the Android community.
On a positive note, we’re adding more smartphones to the list. When we launch, Echo will work with the following. Other Android smartphones that meet the minimum requirement may also work, but the following will be tested and official supported:
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Motorola Moto E
- Motorola Moto G
- Motorola Moto X
- HTC One (2013)
- HTC One (M8)
- LG G2
- LG Nexus 5
The above phones must meet the minimum requirement of:
- Android 4.3 or later operating system
- Bluetooth 4.0 or later
Thanks for your patience. We’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the release.
The Magellan Echo Utility iOS App Version 1.10.12 has been released.
The Magellan Echo Utility for iOS has been updated to support a soon to be released Echo Device Software Version that adds back in the original digital watch face. Simply update your Magellan Echo Utility for iOS through the AppStore.
- Renamed Clock option “Digital” to “Modern”.
- Added additional Clock option “Traditional” for soon to be released Echo Device Software Version 18.104.22.168.
Updating your Magellan Echo Utility iOS App to Version 1.1.12 will not install the Echo Device Software Version that adds back in the digital watch face, it just contains changes that are necessary to support that Echo Device Software Version.
