Your device is already configured to keep its operating system up to date via over-the-air (OTA) updates distributed by RealWear. The HMT will not update automatically – the update process must be initiated by the user.
All applications and user data will be preserved through the update process. However, whenever updating firmware we always suggest backing up your personal files including photos, images, and documents before proceeding.
If the HMT-1 is a lower version (9,05, 8.09 or 7.0x), upgrade through the next highest version(s) is required before the most current update will be available.
NOTE: All screens found on this page are representative of the Wireless Update process but upgrade notes, versions, and descriptions will reflect the actual software being installed.
If not, you may say “CHECK FOR UPDATES”.
A message will display if you’re up to date.
If there is an available update, an option to download the package is displayed.
The software update download will start. The download time depends on the size of the package and the network connectivity.
We recommend muting the microphones if the the download is large. Just say “MUTE MICROPHONE”. When the download has finished, briefly press the large black Action Button on the boom-side of the HMT-1 housing. Then you can install the update via voice commands.
You can set the installation delay time to by 1, 4 or 8 hours. If the delay time is not set within the given time, the default delay timer is set to 4 hours.
‘Be sure to read the following warning messages before proceeding with the software update’
‘We recommend not to use HMT-1 during the software update. Also ensure that there is at least 30 % charge before installing an update.’
Software Update Warning
‘When the software update begins, the following warning is displayed.’
Say “OK” to proceed with the update.
The HMT will reboot itself upon completion of the update.
