Just what it says it does. My only problem with the Wear24 was keeping the screen on while debugging or charging. This app fixes that problem.

The latest update adds support to change screen brightness while charging. Make sure you grant settings permissions when it asks.

Your is a great simple app. I just wish I could set it a dim level for it. The watch is a little bright for me at night

Hi Flexia,

The latest release adds support for setting screen brightness while charging. Make sure you grant the app settings permission when it asks.

Thanks!

Thanks!! This is the only app that sets my Huawei Watch's brightness lower than system setting.
Is it possible to set ambient brightness lower also?

This changes both modes on the Wear24. I believe there is no way to manually trigger ambient mode, so I don't think I can do much with that. Does the Huawei watch have separate brightness settings? I may get out my Moto360 sport and see how it works on that.

If I'm correct, there is no option to set ambient mode brightness on Huawei Watch, and it's way too bright in my opinion...

Thanks for this. I use Google Pay so I'm required to use a lockscreen on my watch. Debugging apps over cable was a nightmare with constant turning of a screen and unlocking.

I only enabled Screen on while Debugging at first, but the screen won't turn off at all while the app is installed. ADB Debugging is off. Also, when Change Brightness is enabled, it changes the brightness when charging, but then does not set the brightness back to whatever it was after taking it off the charger.

Hey,

The debugging just checks to see if ADB is enabled using:
https://developer.android.com/refere...ml#ADB_ENABLED
To stop this behavior, you have to go into the developer settings and turn adb off or swipe away the locked on notification. I'd be welcome to change this if you know of a way to check if an Android device is actively being debugged.

I am not able to replicate the issue with the brightness being reset. I would suggest swiping away the notification if it is active before charging, then adjusting the brightness and placing it on the charger again to see if this fixes it.

Also, the charge functionality will not work on Android 8 devices since background services are not allowed to be started from a receiver like charging. I'd also change this if there is another way.

I think I missed that the notification was present. Sorry for the false alarm.
