This app will basically run on top of your current clock face. It does not replace it. As a result your battery will run down a bit faster . like 1 day use per charge fast.

The main problem with any watchface app right now is that its an app that runs on your watch not a replacement stock watchface. Before you buy an app just remember that anyone and their dog can make an app and put it on the play store. There are some great developers out there that have my support, however I'm not going to pay hard earned money to be a beta tester just because some guy claims he's a developer. There's a reason why big companies spend so much on research and development before they post an app.

and notifications won't show full screen, only in the pull down bar

so, while they look nicer than the default watch faces, it's not a practical solution

It's Sony's fault really for their choice of operating system for the watch. If we as a community could reverse engineer the software maybe some custom stock watch faces wouldn't be so hard to make.

We have been hoping and waiting for a while.. the fact is, no one with knowledge about this os wants to help.. and until they do or someone figures it out we are stuck waiting on Sony.

What I don't understand is there's loads of clock faces for the SW2 but not a lot for the MN2. Imho Sony have abandoned MN2 in favour of SW2.
