We are Helium network enthusiasts (The People's Network!) and we are smartwatch fans, so we put the two together in our own way 🤓. The Helium Smartwatch (He-Sm) App provides you with a quick, on-the-go snapshot of your Helium hotspot's 24-hour & 30-day earnings, online status, and transmit scale. Our App retrieves info from the public Helium API and displays it on your smartwatch. If you have more than one hotspot that you're keeping an eye on, just enter all the names into the He-Sm App so you can cycle through your list to check them all on your smartwatch. The He-Sm App [coming soon!] will run on Apple Watch® products and on Android WearOS® smartwatch products.

Currently, the He-Sm App is free!
It's available free of charge, without warranty, to all users. Our development work is supported by donations. If this turns out well for everyone, we won't need to charge for the App or add in-app purchases. So please consider making a donation of HNT or $. We'd appreciate that very much! 🥳
Thank you for your donation of HNT to support
our development of the He-Sm App!

On your Apple Watch, go to the App Store icon, tap, and search for "Helium-Smartwatch" (without the quotes). That will take you directly to our app for downloading.
On your WearOS Smartwatch, go the the Google Play Store icon, tap, and search for "Helium Smartwatch" (without the quotes). That will take you directly to our app for downloading.
The He-Sm App will run on Apple Watch® products now (Watch Series 6 and newer; WatchOS8.0 - 9.0), and on Android WearOS® smartwatch products such as Samsung Smartwatches.
We query the public Helium API for current information the moment you tap "refresh" on the He-Sm App screen. Sometimes that API gets hung up, or info is delayed, and then our data reliability may be impacted by those circumstances. But, try it out yourself -- compare the He-Sm App data on your smartwatch to the data in the Helium Explorer a few times, to see if they are consistently matching. We'd like to hear about your observations.

Thanks for asking! We pronounce "He-Sm" like this: hee-sim 😎
On the He-Sm App home page, tap the magnifying glass icon in the lower right corner. Then tap "First Word" and either dictate (microphone) or scribble (finger-write) the first word in the 3-word name of the hotspot you're interested in. Tap "Done", then do the same for "Second Word", same for "Third Word". When you've entered all three words, tap "Search". When the search has completed successfully, a "+" button will appear at the lower right. Tap the +, then go back to the home screen, tap the list icon at the lower left, and scroll to the bottom of the list to see your newest hotspot. Tap its name to see the data that the public Helium API has for that hotspot at this moment. Anytime you are on the data dashboard screen, you may tap the dashboard to refresh the data.
From the He-Sm App home page, tap the list icon at the lower left. Scroll to the hotspot name that you'd like to delete. Slide left over that name, and a red confirmation box will appear with a white X. Tap the red box with the white X to delete that hotspot name from your list.
On your iPhone, go to the Watch app. Scroll to and select General settings. Scroll to and set the Enable Dictation slider switch to its green position. Tap Back to exit the settings; the iPhone will then update the Watch.
Yes! If you start dictating the First Word of a 3-word hotspot name, and you dictate all three words in a row, He-Sm is so smart it will do its best to correctly allocate the three words that you spoke into their correct spots. And if the dictation software adds a comma in the mix, He-Sm will slide right over it. You can just tap Search and move right along! 😎
Yes! On the He-Sm App home screen, tape the hexagon that says "Helium Smartwatch App" and you will go directly to the updated dashboard for the last hotspot you checked on.
Also, you can scroll by turning the Digital Crown. That's very fun :-)
