Analogue watch face with Digital AoD

Please have a look at my first watch face. Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you.

Nicely done - congrats. Here are some considerations/suggestions for you:

  1. Make the text font bigger.
  2. Add heartbeat next to steps - and maybe eliminate steps? Seems to me people should care more about heartbeat than steps.
  3. Be aware that anything shown in white uses 3 times as much battery power as the same thing shown in red, blue, or green. I used no white in my face and I get around 4 days of battery life even though I use the Running screen for 30 min. every day. (Bold&Brave3)
  4. Change the Z value of of the hands to be below text/icon objects. The hour numbers and tic marks should be at the lowest Z value.
  5. Lengthen the hour & minute hands so the minute hand is just short of the hour numbers.

Normal display looks great, but yes, larger text would be better.
AOD: definitely larger text again, and the Font for the Digital Time should be changed as well, just my thoughts though, it’s your Face remember :clap:

That is interesting. I had a request for the exact opposite. The request was for a digital watchface with an analog AOD mode.

Looks great. I was actually thinking of trying that with all my faces. Just a basic digital for aod. Much easier than configuring a busy face with a lot of compilations.

Because the AOD on my Active was Rubbish I never Bothered with AOD and just plonked a Big Digital in there. Now I have had a look at a GW4 I am behaving myself a bit better but still think a Digital is best in ECO/AOD/DIM mode. I wonder if there was a MAG Poll on the popularity of AOD :::)))

I will be Very Interested . A nice AOD is like Making Another Face . I did Feel it a Waste of time . There are still issues even on the GW4 but it is so much better on there .

I have been very inconsistent in regards of AoD. Sometimes I let there just the main digits or hands, sometimes I just placed shading layer over the background to make it bit more dim. Once I even made analog dim mode for a digital watch on direct request. I am still searching for my truly preference, as I do use the dim mode very seldom. My suggestion would be, if you use some info on dim mode, place it close if not on same place as in the active mode.

I just posted an AOD poll on the Facer Facebook Group just to see what kind of AOD use that people expect from their watches. You can find it here: Facebook AOD Poll

I do not use and will not use facebook - it’s a matter of priciple for me. However, all my designs have a digital AOD be they analog or digital. I am also interested in what other users do - could you please post your poll results here too

Here is a screen capture of the poll with all the options currently. You will have to open it into a new window or tab to really be able to read it.
