Default Watch faces

I've tried 3 different watch face apps, is anyone having the same issue. Where when you set a new watch face you still have the default face show up for a split second before the new one?

I haven't been able to get it to work either but I found a workaround


Download the app Shake from the Play Store. App icon is a phone with two blue arrows rotating.
Download OClock from the OStore
Disable the lock screen option from Slide to None. Found in Settings -- Personal & Accounts - Security
Open the OClock app and select a watchface
Open Shake app and configure, here's my settings
Action when shaken - Simple - Run an installed app - Selected Oclock
Sensor sensitivity 16
Check Start at phone start up
Check Active when screen is off

If you want the Omate to sleep faster after a shake to wake, change the Display timeout in Settings - Device - Display - Sleep

Hope this helps.

If you're in OUI2.0 launcher, wavy background, long press to bring up a menu. Then Add the Ostore to the homescreen.

That worked for me, thanks! Before this I was looking for a live wallpaper with clock and using Tasker to keep the screen on!

Default OClock Watch Faces

I can't get the watch faces in Oclock to display 12 hour time. Is there a setting I can change? Some of the watch faces that should show the date or other info just have blank spots also. TS 1/8 1900, ensec + operative root.

Not that I've found. Just that one blocky looking one. I'm not much of a fan of it.

I wish they had an API to make your own too.

I've been using the Ubuntu Launcher as my "watch face" since it shows notifications and a big digital clock on the lock screen nicely.
