It's not easy to get statistic date from Facer at the moment (Feb 2018) - especially if you are not premium designer. So, I watch each of my watch face every day at the same time and write down the syncs manually (I read in the discussion, that some of another creator e.g. @pacingpoet do the same) for some months. This give me an opportunity to see not only the total sync number, but to observe the daily development and popularity of each watch face as well.
I am not sure, if that this kind of information would be interesting also for another creators, but @GRR requested more statistic , so here it is.
TOP 10 of my Watch Faces with the Lowest Syncs in the First 30 Days
The total watch face amount I choose from is 123 original designs I produced since November 23, 2017.
10 ... ... 25 Syncs ... Ball Live Animation
09 ... ... 25 Syncs ... Chocolate Coffee Break
08 ... ... 23 Syncs ... Simple R.E.D.
07 ... ... 22 Syncs ... B.E.A.T.
06 ... ... 21 Syncs ... Jumping Ball
05 ... ... 20 Syncs ... Summer Sun Power
04 ... ... 18 Syncs ... Personal Spring Orchestra
03 ... ... 17 Syncs ... Dynamic Second Hand Wake Up
02 ... ... 17 Syncs ... Driving Home
01 ... ... 8 Syncs ... ONE EFFECT Watch Face
All of the models reached max. 25 Syncs in the first 30 days. But, at one of those "loser designs" something happen afterwords. Please see the Table below.
So let's have a closer look at this watch faces.
Dynamic Second Hand Wake Up
This watch face was primary created for a tutorial about a bouncing (shaking) second hand. This is also the reason why the second hand is so ugly thick . @Facer_Official picked up this tutorial latter on and published (featured) it in the section Facer Academy.
As you see, in this particular case the watch face itself and the tutorials about the special effect would bring all together only a really few syncs (Phase 1).
Huge effect at this particular loser design (in comparison to the low syncs) was the featuring though Facer (Phase 2). Both tutorials have only a minor influence on syncs.
I do not have any explanation why the Phase 3 started app. 10 days ago. I think that this could be caused by possibly higher ranking in the internal searching machine or trough stronger pushing of the watch face (and/ or tutorial) from Facer algorithm.
Standard Curve of a Watch Face Disaster
This is the typical trend of watch faces with low syncs. In this case it is the model Chocolate Coffee Break.
