:fire: New sample watchface showcasing expressions

I know using expressions can be tough sometimes. So we created a watchface that uses some really fun expressions we’ve used in the past. It’s a really easy way to get your feet wet and just play with fun motion.

How I would recommend you use it: just turn off all the layers but one and see how it moves. Look at the expression area and play with the numbers, see what happens. Tinkering is a great way to learn!

It’s full inspectable with a few hidden layers, so check them all out.

:fire: New and improved documentation

We have updated the documentation, it’s now supercharged with new examples, videos and much more!
