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 2):
=====================

- Bottom middle: set RGBa color for watch hands

- 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:
========================

> Loading and saving of watch configuration upto 30 slots

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:

@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...

Please wait for the official version.

Even if I wanted, technically it is not possible to post a working development version here I think.
The watch (wgt file) needs to be signed with a Samsung developer certificate that is bound to my own gear2 device. It would give a certificate error on other devices.
Samsung does this to protect developers, so that their development versions of apps can't be distributed.

Wgt that do not use special priviliges, don't need to be signed with a samsung developer certificate, these can be used by others too, that are basic WebKit apps, like some of the watches posted here.

You probably have already seen privilege errors trying to install some of the demo apps...that's because you need a samsung developer certificate (public type) to build/sign these.
