Angry [Tasker] "Tasface": Flick-your-wrist shows watchface!

As many of you may know, for newer version of TS (at least for 4th List, May version devices), it's NOT possible to flick your wrist to show watch face since the Accelerator is DISABLED whenever screen is OFF!!!

What an oversight! A smart watch needs you to push a button to see time? What if when you are driving or have both hand full and cannot spare even a finger!?

(My Pebble, on the contrast, works great here!)

I tried to force the screen always on with watch face, it's great, except it kills my battery in around 6 hrs (airplane mode!) Not acceptable!

Thus, Here comes "Tasface". With this, you could achieve:
1. Let TS shows you time WHENEVER you LOOK at the watch! (well, actually when the watch is face up) or when you flick your wrist (You can modify this!)
2. Reduce using your button (if you have an Shortcut supported launcher like Smart Launcher 2)

maybe I'm seeing it right but how do you import the Taskface into Tasker?
When I tried I got told it cannot do such?

Same with me, I can't see the xml when trying to import on my TS.

I did something else,I installed the app' shake' and it does almost the same thing without root..
The only minnus is that when you make sudden moves it opens and the battery drains a bit faster...
At this point I am happy Though

I use Awesome on/off with my late model TS, with generally good results, although sometimes it stops working for no obvious reason. It can happen when the watch has been awake very recently. And other times, when it has not been on my wrist for an hour or so, it still works and the clock appears as soon as I pick it up. I've not yet been able to pin down why it behaves the way it does.

I can't get this to work at all, did you change the default settings?

No (as I recall it) just tinkered with the degree setting for personal preference. But I get the impression that on some TS models the sensors work better than on others.
