YES you can!
Converting your 270W into a Wi!
The process REQUIRES the use of an Apple phone or tablet*.
When can I do it?
The display must be replaced, and the part will be available for purchase in the US, and available internationally summer 2018. (see update below)
How do I do it?
The process REQUIRES the use of an Apple phone or tablet.
After physically replacing the display of your 270W with a $30** 270Wi display, Wi firmware H10 must be installed for the grinder to be able to function at all. Installation of the software update requires downloading our Sette Updater app with an Apple smartphone or tablet that has Bluetooth. Firmware updating instructions are included in the app.
What should I avoid?
WARNING- if you update software on a 270W without installing a 270Wi display, your 270W will be inoperable until a 270Wi display is purchased and installed.
What can I expect of the conversion?
It is important to note that retrofitting a 270W with the Wi software pack doesn’t necessarily make the grinder work like a new 270Wi. We’ve made over 40 running changes to the Sette series since its introduction, each of which has a marginal impact on performance, most notably the repeatability of a dosing within a few tenths of a gram.
We find that upgrading your 270W to a Wi greatly improves the user experience, and results in weight accuracy that is at least as good as, and usually better than, the original 270W software pack. Basically, installing the Wi can only make your 270W work better!
UPDATE: The sale of the Wi display is on hold as we work to ensure an easy, dependable conversion process for the end user. We’ll have an update posted on June 15th, please hold on until then!
