Hi guys, is there any option or an app or something to lower the dimmed screen brightness? I like my watch always on, but I find it a bit to bright, especially at night.

Not the OP, but yeah, "1" is pretty bright in a dark room.

well in the setting there's only setting for brithness when the watch's awake and an option to turn always on, which turn the display off.. I'd like it always on but just a bit darker

Try another watchface

Today I use the "Aviation Watch" and the dim mode is not full white but a little yellow and it is darker than other.

I have also the "Less is more" watchface and you can setup the font color for active and dim mode. I setup my dim color to dark grey and it is very dark in dim mode.

it's not about the background brightness of the watchface.. the screen backlit is always on, and I think it's too bright in dimmed mode.. at least at night. This is the only thing why I regret buying this over the samsung gear live as the amoled screen must look gorgeous in dimmed mode when only the numbers are visible.

I agree. Even with always on set to off, my screen lights up every time I get a notification.

Basically anybody near me could read it. I'd rather it just vibrate. And make me double tap to wake.

Using a clock face with the option of dimmed display settings like Pujie Black - Wear Watch Face turn off all dimmed and it's black display completely off, until wrist turns.

Almost all watchfaces from Smartwatch Bureaux have 2 brighness setup for active and dim mode. You can setup dim mode very very dark but backlight is always ON.

I would like an APP that I can set the Screen to OFF from 1 am until 8 am then back to always on. I dislike having to change the settings when I lay down and wake up.

That is the beauty of Android... some smart programer will write some code for an app and I will buy it...
