I uploaded Multi-Watch to the Samsung apps store.

Make sure you use the Samsungs Apps from within the Gear Manager to find this app.

Update (30-07-2014): Latest version available: version 2.4

This is a demo video for version 2.3 which is pretty much the same as the latest version.




VERSION 2.4.0:

Build your own watch with the Multi-Watch!

Multi-Watch is not a single watch face, but any watch face you like.

Put the Watch in "Edit-mode" by clicking in the center of the watch, return to "User-mode" by clicking again in the center.

You can change various properties of the watch by selecting one of the edit buttons, or select a complete Watch Theme from your Downloads directory.

Touch a button area multiple times to get a different result, like different color or larger font depending on the property you are editing.

Make a slide-up gesture on the watch face to go to your list of favorite apps.


These are the Edit options for your Multi-Watch:
================================================

- complete theme selection (find your theme files on gearfaces.com)
- any (watch) background from the gallery
- numbers (normal/roman) or dots in a circle
- digital time on/off/size/position
- digital time am/pm or 24h + position and size
- date on/off/size/position/format
- battery indicator
- pedometer value (in km and miles)
- unlimited colors for data/time/hands
- android like topbar with battery, time and pedometer value)
- apps to launch after slide-up gesture.
- days/month names in English,French,Spanish,German or Dutch

- Bottom left: select WsTheme from Downloads dir
- Left middle: show pedometer value in km/mi 2 sizes
- Area around the center: fine-tuning position for date/time/pedometer/theme


Edit-Mode (screen 2):
=====================

- Center: go to Edit screen 3

- Area around the center: fine-tuning position for theme


Edit-Mode (screen 3):
=====================

- Center: switch off Edit-mode
- Set apps to launch after slide-up gesture



Loading Theme file:
===================
- download your .wstheme files from gearfaces.com
- connect your gear2 to your computer with a usb cable
- copy the .wstheme files to the "Downloads" directory on your Gear2 device
- select the theme from Multi-Watch with the Bottom-Left touch button in Edit-Mode


Notes form the developer:

I uploaded my Multi-Watch to the Samsung apps store.

It is a watch which you can edit/configure on the gear2 itself.
You can change the background, hands type and color, digital time on/off ampm or 24h, battery indicator on/off.
You can also select a background from the gallery on the gear2.
Nice free background images can be found on gearfaces.com

The app is currently "Under device test" by Samsung, might take a few days to become publicly available.

Here is a preview video:

Put the Multi-Watch in "Edit-mode" by clicking in the center of the watch, return to "User-mode" by clicking again in the center.

Center: switch on/off Edit-mode
Top left corner: select image from Gallery
Top middle: set dots or number in a circle on the screen
Top right corner: am/pm or 24h time format
Right middle: date on/off and position

drool ! sure looking great glad finally made it for release :) countless hours into making that one.
Yes, it was a couple of days of work, more then I planned for at least....

And after the first users start to use it, new wishes will come...

So, it's a first version, probably more work to come.
But that is not a problem, it's nice to discover new worlds...

@klwinkel Any way we could get it directly from you to side load it? You know I'm going to buy it when it officially releases... But I'm so anxious to get my hands on it!

Please wait for the official version.

Even if I wanted, technically it is not possible to post a working development version here I think.
The watch (wgt file) needs to be signed with a Samsung developer certificate that is bound to my own gear2 device. It would give a certificate error on other devices.
Samsung does this to protect developers, so that their development versions of apps can't be distributed.

Wgt that do not use special priviliges, don't need to be signed with a samsung developer certificate, these can be used by others too, that are basic WebKit apps, like some of the watches posted here.

You probably have already seen privilege errors trying to install some of the demo apps...that's because you need a samsung developer certificate (public type) to build/sign these.

if its a possibility that they wont allow is , isn't it possible to just share the wgt file , from this thread we have a few we can share and load on eachothers watches and they work fine.

Is it possible to use your own designs or do you have to use works created by others from the original gear one watch styler themes? (see images below)

Ps. it's customary and polite to credit the original authors when you use work that is not your own... Just sayin'.

If I read correctly you would choose images in your gear2 gallery to use. He only listed gearfaces.com as a source for background images.

No he says that the author used images not created by him. And that Gearfaces can be used for the backgrounds, but Im the owner of GF and I need to ask every designer his permission to use their backgrounds for this.
Their not our creations and these designers spent tons of time on some of them. So I think its fair to give the proper people credits at least, or maybe even ask their permission. As he wants to ask money for this app with someone elses work.
