#dnow# - #dsync# = #dwe#?

SINCE SYNCED TEST • Facer: the world’s largest watch face platform

I cannot imagine why Facer give us #DSYNC# .
I would love to know. Just testing it Subtracting it from #DNOW# should give me how long I have had that Face. However it Behaves exactly the same as #DWE# . I am not complaining just interested. I bet this gets a huge response. ::))


I guess no. More like #DNOW#-#DSYNC#=time stamp when the watch face was synced. The values are growing together, no matter whether awake or in dim mode. One since sync, other since our era.
#DWE# resets at every wake up.


Yeah. According to the documentation #DSYNC# is a fixed vale at the time the face is synced. It works correctly on the Facer.io time machine but not on my watch. A bonus is it gives milliseconds since wake.


This is an interesting problem that I would like to have working on a face I am working on. I need to know the time in hours or days since the watch face was synced to callibrate the time elapsed since an event. Did you guys ever get (#DNOW#-#DSYNC#) to work? I can’t seem to get it to work either…

No I am afraid not . I tried everything , good and bad Syntax , I would say it does not work . Perhaps it should be flagged as a Pro Utility but none commented on it working .
I don’t suppose #ZWC# Number of watch face activations since synced , also I do not know if this works . Sounds complicated and very interesting got the BradC stamp on it already ; )

Darn, thanks @russellcresser. I think it’s a bug that @Facer_Official should know about… Maybe this tag will get their attention.

Actually, what I had in mind (if I can get this to work ) is a simple calibration solution to a complicated celestial event that is different all over the world. Oh well, I’ll keep looking at alternative ways to go about it…

Yeah you certainly get some complex parts on your Faces. Sounds to me like you need to GoPro. I always hope that Little Labs look at some of these things. I think I sent an Email on this one. But I never hold my breath. I think Facer rely heavily on the community to fend off a lot of enquiries. Without the guys on here there would be far less people able to get Creative.

Seems to work fine on my Fossil Carlyle…


@ThaMattie . Thanks for looking at this. I will try it again on my watch . Would you publish this test . For a few hours may be. I am thinking it depends on the watch .

A few screenshots from my watch.
Also tried #ZWC# to show the number of Wakes.
That also will not work on my watch.
Just watch specific problems I guess.
Galaxy Active for reference.

Yeah, I guess Facer needs to get it’s info from the watch and if the watch provides the wrong info then it’s too bad…

Yeah. There is plenty that works perfectly to make a Nice Face. I am finding in the time I have been using Facer things are getting smother. Thanks for joining in. Some times I think my problems are my bad implementation of the Maths. It is great to have input from an experienced Maker ; )

Hey, thanks for looking into this some more @ThaMattie & @russellcresser. I am thinking this is a thing that isn’t compatible with Samsung watches, since it is working with your Fossil and not my Samsung Galaxy watch. At first I thought it was working about 9 minutes in, but then it resets back to zero… Oh well…
