How to update the operating system of the RealWear HMT-1?

In this article you will learn how to update the operating system of the RealWear HMT-1

What is needed:

  • A RealWear with at least 50% battery capacity 
  • A stabel Wi-Fi network
  • Make sure it is not connected to a computer

All the data will probably be preserved through the update process, but we suggest making a back-up of your RealWear just in case. Read here how to make a back-up of your RealWear. Note: if the version of your RealWear is lower than the update requires, first update to the next higher version.

What to do:

  1. Power the headset on and connect it to the internet
  2. Go to my programs and say: wireless update
  3. You may have the most recent version
  4. If not, say: check for updates
  5. If you have the most recent version it will say: your device’s software is currently up to date
  6. if there is an update available, an option to download the update is visible.
  7. Now say download, or say select item (followed by the number of the package which you want to download)

Steps after step 7 If you want to download it directly

  1. if the download is complete say: install now to install it directly

Steps after step 7 If you want to install it later

  1.   If the download is complete, an option to install now or later is being shown.
  2. If you say install later a pop up of when you want to download it will display
  3. You can set the delay time to 1, 4 or 8 hours. If you don’t say anything it will automatically download after 4 hours

Now you should have the most recent version on your RealWear HMT-1.
