Is it possible to have shortcuts like on original watchfaces on custom watchfaces ? Like it open the heartreate "menu" when you click on the heartrate on the watchface ?
Thank you !

Hi,

No isn't possible, the management of shortcuts is from firmware.

Hi all, and thanks Magical Unicorn for all the great work ! I understood more in 15 minutes here than after an hour of researching around....

I have a few questions to better understand what I'm learning in order to create my own watchface...

Question 1 :
Let's say I edit a random watchface and it currently has this :
"Battery": { "BatteryIcon": { "X": 0, "Y": 0, "ImageIndex": 44, "ImagesCount": 11 } },

How are the 11 images used to reflect the battery status ? Does it divide 100% of battery by 11 and then will display one of each image for each part (so for example, image 44 for 0 to ~9% battery, image 45 for ~9% to ~18%, and so on) ?
Or else, how to create that mapping between the battery status and the picture to be displayed among the 11 available ?

Question 2 :
What does this Preview 1 section mean ?
"Background": { "Preview1": { "X": 18, "Y": 17, "ImageIndex": 43 } },

Or what about other elements that are hard to understand like "UnknownV11": 0 in "Time" and so on ?

Question 3 :
Is there a guide somewhere of elements you can or cannot use for a given parameter ?
How do you know for example that there is "Hours" and "Tens" and "Ones" in Time ?
Or, if I want to display pulse as digits or as an image , can I choose ? What's the limit ?

Thanks a lot !!

Hello.
I have such a problem with compiling the watch face, my folder with pictures weighs less than 88 KB (without preview) and with the previews it weighs 147 KB and the program claims that the files really weigh 920 kb.
