This is what I see on my watch, but neither of those screens allows me to select anything

Thanks for the shots. I'm pushing new version that works around the reported button count and always shows the universal single button settings. That should hopefully fix things for you.

Hey,
thank you for implementing the function so fast. used the app now for some days and I have to say I am really impressed. My only problem is that I sometimes forget the button combinations, but as that's anyway a planned feature, that's not a problem (and if then mine).
On a Zen watch3 I also got it running without any problems.

Thank you so much for the really useful app.

This works goot on a single button Ticwatch E. Is there any chance you could get it to trigger the screen timeout or lock instead of launching an app?

So far it's only apps and Assistant but I'm exploring the options. In my case I would like to be able to start timers with specific time right away with button press.

Work in progress:
This is my vision which luckily looks fine for me. (This is how it looks on my Huawei Watch 2 where icons are positioned based on real buttons.)

Long presses are better on the outermost circle since there is more room and the space will be cramped on watches like LG Sport. (All agree, right? )
Now I need the rework the timeout progress bar but I'm not sure which way to go. One idea is to make it as wide as the outmost circle, another idea is to make it "pie chart" like inside the inner circle...

Works great on HW1 with Wear 2.9 - many thanks!

Everyone who wants theater mode with the button have a look at:

Works perfectly in combination with button launcher!

Cheers

The app works great and I really love that it shows now the buttons. Thaks for the awesome app.
But this feature could be really nice, to turn off Bluetooth connection, or start a timer in addition to apps, so if that could be added, it would be awesome.

Is it possible to also remap a single long-press on the secondary button?

Autowear also supports toggling Theater Mode already. (you also have to use the adb-commands to allow the permissions, but no root required).
I just used one of their Launchers (the one called "night" ,-) ) to start a securesettings-profile to toggle theatermode.

Unfortunately AFAIK it's not possible with the current set of Android Wear API.

I love it !!

Woud it be possible to have more shortcuts for watches with just one button? Like double press, triple press, or long press followed by short press, etc ?
