Default Multi-Watch - an editable Gear 2 watch

I uploaded Multi-Watch to the Samsung apps store.

Make sure you use the Samsungs Apps from within the Gear Manager to find this app.

Update (30-07-2014): Latest version available: version 2.4

This is a demo video for version 2.3 which is pretty much the same as the latest version.




VERSION 2.4.0:

Build your own watch with the Multi-Watch!

Multi-Watch is not a single watch face, but any watch face you like.

Put the Watch in "Edit-mode" by clicking in the center of the watch, return to "User-mode" by clicking again in the center.

You can change various properties of the watch by selecting one of the edit buttons, or select a complete Watch Theme from your Downloads directory.

Touch a button area multiple times to get a different result, like different color or larger font depending on the property you are editing.

Make a slide-up gesture on the watch face to go to your list of favorite apps.


These are the Edit options for your Multi-Watch:
================================================

- complete theme selection (find your theme files on gearfaces.com)
- any (watch) background from the gallery
- numbers (normal/roman) or dots in a circle
- digital time on/off/size/position
- digital time am/pm or 24h + position and size
- date on/off/size/position/format
- battery indicator
- pedometer value (in km and miles)
- unlimited colors for data/time/hands
- android like topbar with battery, time and pedometer value)
- apps to launch after slide-up gesture.
- days/month names in English,French,Spanish,German or Dutch


Edit-Mode (screen 1):
=====================

- Center: go to Edit screen 2
- Top left: select background image from Gallery
- Top middle: set dots or numbers in a circle on the screen
- Top right: am/pm or 24h time format
- Right middle: date on/off/position/size/format
- Bottom right: position/size of digital time
- Bottom middle: set RGBa color for date & time
- Bottom left: select WsTheme from Downloads dir
- Left middle: show pedometer value in km/mi 2 sizes
- Area around the center: fine-tuning position for date/time/pedometer/theme


Edit-Mode (screen 2):
=====================

- Center: go to Edit screen 3
- Top left: Load theme preview images (can take some time!!!)
- Top middle: Reset all to initial values
- Top right: show battery status and/or pedometer value and or statusbar
- Right middle: change hands type
- Bottom right: Select Hourly chime from list (time period selectable)
- Bottom middle: set RGBa color for watch hands
- Bottom left: Select WsTheme from Downloads dir (same as screen 1)
- Left middle: load/save current watchface configuration (30 slots)
- Area around the center: fine-tuning position for theme


Edit-Mode (screen 3):
=====================

- Center: switch off Edit-mode
- Set apps to launch after slide-up gesture



Loading Theme file:
===================
- download your .wstheme files from gearfaces.com
- connect your gear2 to your computer with a usb cable
- copy the .wstheme files to the "Downloads" directory on your Gear2 device
- select the theme from Multi-Watch with the Bottom-Left touch button in Edit-Mode


Notes form the developer:
========================

> .wstheme files (for loading themes), can be found on gearfaces.com
> Digital WsThemes are now also supported.
> Loading and saving of watch configuration upto 30 slots
> This version is prepared for loading themes directly from the Multi-Watch phone app.
> If you find a watch not looking as is should, please contact me.



You can find the android app to download wstheme files directly from your phone in the Google Play Store.

It is a watch which you can edit/configure on the gear2 itself.
You can change the background, hands type and color, digital time on/off ampm or 24h, battery indicator on/off.
You can also select a background from the gallery on the gear2.
Nice free background images can be found on gearfaces.com

The app is currently "Under device test" by Samsung, might take a few days to become publicly available.

Here is a preview video:

Put the Multi-Watch in "Edit-mode" by clicking in the center of the watch, return to "User-mode" by clicking again in the center.

Edit-Mode:
=======

Center: switch on/off Edit-mode
Top left corner: select image from Gallery
Top middle: set dots or number in a circle on the screen
Top right corner: am/pm or 24h time format
Right middle: date on/off and position
Bottom Right: position of digital time
Bottom middle: select a build-in watch face
Bottom left: Select hands type/color
Left middle: show battery status
Area around the center: fine-tuning date and digital time position

@klwinkel Any way we could get it directly from you to side load it? You know I'm going to buy it when it officially releases... But I'm so anxious to get my hands on it!

Yes, it was a couple of days of work, more then I planned for at least....

And after the first users start to use it, new wishes will come...

So, it's a first version, probably more work to come.
But that is not a problem, it's nice to discover new worlds...
