Default [Q] ToDo list or calendar

Aside from the EasyDo smart assistant, is there any widgets I can use with the null rom that basically just present my ToDo list, or a calendar widget that maybe shows 2 or 3 events and when clicked shows the rest? I ask because I constantly find myself writing things on my hand like "bills" so I can remember to do them after work. It would be great if I could dedicate a homescreen to a widget for the same purpose and stop writing on my hand.

I'm using Google Calendar and Tick Tick on my gear. They both work nicely with syncing via bluetooth tether

I use Simple Calendar Widget.
It's scrollable and when you tap an event, it opens in calendar.
A bit fiddly to configure on the Gear, so I set up the layout on the phone and then export and copy to Gear.


I used to always be taking my phone out to check what room I had to be in. Now, I can easily check on my watch

You can either side load it or download via the playstore on the gear.
Once it's installed, you can select a 1x2 widget and configure it how you like in terms of colours, fields to display, font size.

The widget on the top half of the screen is Minimalistic Text widget. I have 1 instance of it with the time and date. And another overlapping instance with just the battery.

There is also the Noticounter widget which I have overlapping everything else.

[edit] As I mentioned, it's easier to setup the widget on your phone and then export it and import it on the Gear. The screen on the Gear is too small and fiddly. That applies to both Simple Calendar and Minimalistic Text [/edit]

Default Getting calendar apps to sync

I've got calendar apps installed ok, but they don't seem to sync, or at least don't show any meetings. When I open up Today's schedule (the stock gear app) it shows the days appointments fine. How can I get the appointments to show in the non stock apps. I'm running null_19 and had a look through the app settings. The google calendar sync and other calendar apps are set to off. I turned them on, but it killed the battery in about 20 minutes and still didnt seem to sync the meetings.

Its a major gap in the utility of the watch for me, so I'd really appreciate any help or advice. I've trawled all the threads the mention calendar, but I didnt find anything that helped.

Thanks.
