how to switch light when i am running with manual laps mode and covering display is used to mark the laps?

covering of display to switch manual laps doesnt work with the gloves, is it correct performance ?

covering of display to switch light is totally untrustworthy, sometimes it work at first atempt, sometimes i do dont have chance for the several atempts

thanks for the answers

Unfortunately activating the light and activating manual laps are the same so you cannot turn the light on while using manual laps (unless you activated the backlight so it stays on at all times). You need to touch the screen with your palm or touch on either side of the screen with two fingers to activate the light. It is based on electrical impulse from the touch and I have had no problems getting it to light up with gloves on, but it may depend on the thickness of the gloves.

I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.
