# Figured it out - battery percentage as dial

It took me way too long to get it right. How to get the battery display as half circle dial.

The rotation is: (#BLN#/30*54)

Math geniuses, why does this work? Where does the 54 come from?

I had to go to MathPapa to find the 54 as x.

I needed it to get the bezel to rotate in this one:

Nicely done, but you should turn Inspection on so people can see exactly what youâ€™re doing and how you did it.

Hey well done @juni00 good lesson . If you use the @petruuccios perfectly descriptive form of maths it is always easier to work out what is happening . Obviously the `-` makes it go the other way .

`(-((#BLN#)/(100/180)))`

Of course, that looks way more logical! 54 really got me.

Oh, Iâ€™m sure no one wants to see my shading and highlight overlays and other trickery I use. Iâ€™m pretty sure everyone already knows how to do that.

It is pretty clean, I like it. Maybe you could add static second hand to the dim mode for better feeling, when some seconds tick marks are already lit.

I lit those two tick marks to add a highlight for when the hour and minute hand are at the 9 oâ€™clock position but that makes sense.

Did you know you can actually add a second hand for dim mode and it works? But I guess it defeats the purpose of dim mode.

I knew I can let it visible in creator, but whenever I tried on my watch, it â€śworkedâ€ť like this:
When the watch went to dim mode, the second hand froze. When the watch woke up, the second hand first appeared where it froze, then it jumped to actual position. Maybe its better meanwhile, but I did not try it more than year.

A lot of Designers Park the Second Hand in AOD. It looks good not like a mistake. Quite a few things do not work in Real AOD but still show in Creator. Animations and Live Heart Rate etc.

Not complaining, donâ€™t really care, but if you ask other people for help I donâ€™t think itâ€™s fair to hide your â€śtrickeryâ€ť.
russellcresser and petruuccios are kind enough to help anyway. Iâ€™m not.

But itâ€™s not really watch face specific, itâ€™s just graphics. Iâ€™ll share any creator related trick I find but so far Iâ€™m still new to it.
