And now, using Magico
Set yourself in a comfortable position in front of your TV.
We recommend using an arm-rest for the first few times.
In order to get the best experience from the app we recommend you set your Watch screen wake time to 70 sec.
Do this by going to "Settings", then "General", then "Wake Screen". Scroll down and check "Wake for 70 Seconds".
You will notice the sensitivity bar at the button of the screen. You can use it to adjust the gesture sensitivity to your liking.
Learn the gestures
Magico has 2 states: "Control" and "Locked".
Surprisingly, "Control" state lets you operate your TV.
When you've finished your actions and don't want your movements to affect the TV anymore, switch to "Locked".
On the Watch face:
Move your hand up, down, left and right to navigate.
Pinch your fingers to "click" (select).
Raise your hand quickly for "home" (menu)
Move your hand horizontally towards yourself for "back".
Rotate the watch's crown to change the volume.
Now, what are you waiting for? Go use Magico!
You can through away your dirty old remote control!
