Gear1 runs android so someone needs to see if there can be a app created for HTML5.... Sadly WatchStyler is not compatible with Gear2 and Neo

Ok Thanks. Hopefully someone is creative to create a new app.

Default Watchstyler

I find it hard to believe that the Gear2 would be released without an app for making watch faces. Watchstyler was universally touted as being THE most useful and popular app for the original Gear. Surely Sammy would capitalize on its popularity! The next smartwatch I purchase would have to allow me to continue to enjoy the plethora of watchfaces created by the talented folks @ XDA! For me it is a watch first!... and I am spoilt to the core after having so many choices of faces to ever go back to just a few primitive "cartoonish" dials! I want the new Gear2 so badly I can taste it! But until we can "port" over the watchfaces already available or come up with a viable method of creating new ones in Tizen I will continue to enjoy what I have.... which, after all, is still a kick-@ss piece of technology!.... sorry... just had to get that off my chest!.

Why would Samsung capitalize on it? It was never their app to begin with. It was a privately created app. Blame the creators of watch styler for not rewriting the app for the gear 2.

Why would Samsung capitalize on it? Are you kidding? One of the major complaints (one) was that the Gear was released with a very limited collection of stock faces. Even now there is only a handful of "crackerjack" watchfaces. I'm not blaming anyone.... simply stating my dismay and disbelief that there seems to be no method (now) of rocking out the Gear2 with a little more sophisticated watchfaces. I work in a luxury jewelry store and certainly won't be wearing a S5 wallpaper on my wrist. I am well aware that it was created by one of Sammys "partners".

You can change the backgrounds..... Lol. I know it's not much.. but what can we really expect 2 days after its release? Devs are probably waiting to see if the buzz behind these products actually produces numbers. Maybe when enough purple start clamoring for it someone will step up to the plate and create an app. It just sucks (IMO) because the big draw was suppose to be how easy it would be to create html5/java apps.... but no one has actually done it yet....

A user of this forum have made a face clock modifying the example that comes in the Tizen SDK.

The actual Wacht Styler dont work with the new Gear Manager.

HI,
I installed Styler form samsung store and I have created some new faces and they work OK, I havent loaded one from gearfaces but they have 4 supposedly compatible with tizen from main pages menu.

I will give a try as soon as my watch returns...I have returned to seller because it has a problem with the battery.

Cheers,
Galaxy note 3 + Gear 2 Neo
