Dumb question - after you run the Android application via Eclipse and it installs the APK onto the phone, how do you view the watchface? Should it show as a new watchface clock in the customise watchface editor?

Edit: Answered my own question - yes

Are you able to explain how to add a date to the analog clock (e.g. day of the month) and also maybe the month (e.g. Jul for July)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Naheel,

I've tried adding the date but without any luck. Nothing is showing up on the watchface. Do I have to add some other code to include the new XML as part of the build? Will the date show above the watch background image or is there the chance that it is on the bottom layer? Also I'm guessing that the text will be white as per the sample code you posted. Any help is appreciated!

Sorry, I forget one last step.

Prompt
I've been busy making new analog watchfaces and figured out how to offset the dials. Edit the code within \res\layout\clock_widget_analog.xml

How to offset dials

As an example the following code will use a square second hands PNG file, resize it to 45x45px and offset it 82px from the top and 70px from the left. It will continue to rotate around the centre of the PNG file (i.e. around pixel x=23,y=23)
Code:
<include layout="@layout/analog_clock_hand_seconds"
        android:gravity="left"
        android:layout_marginTop="82px"
        android:layout_marginLeft="70px"
        android:layout_width="45px"
        android:layout_height="45px" 
        />
