1500x500 - we’ll make sure to add a note in our next update!


@Facer_Official, I’d love to have access to more stats, but I’m wondering if I will ever get to premium (3K syncs on 3+ watchfaces), since I design for women (and only some women like my aesthetics).

Can you please disclose how many female users in total are in the Facer community?


Still wrong step count on Gear S3. Weather data seems to be completely made up too.

I cannot log in into my Creator webpage after update and browser-based Creator are down for me right now.

We saw a massive traffic spike related to this launch and our servers temporarily got over capacity - we’re back up and stable now. Sorry about that!

Why is there still no option for a notification reminder/indicator? After AW 2.0 update it is impossible to see if you have a notification at a glance without interacting with the watch which is bizarre and ridiculous in my opinion.

I likey:

Watch count seems a little off though. Only says “20” on my profile, and scrolling down does not load the rest. (on the website).

I see about 100 faces on your page.

@eradicator09 that looks like a bug - we’ll fix asap.


Was that on the Website or Mobile App? I’m on Chrome website from my desktop computer.

@eradicator09 on the website… When the page first loads it says 20 DESIGNS. If you scroll down and let more load, then scroll back up, you’ll see the count rise. 40 DESIGNS… 80 DESIGNS… etc.

Yeah it just would never load for me. Probably the server traffic issue they were having yesterday. Haven’t check it yet this morning. No big worries. I wonder how often people read the profile bios anyway.

I did just notice on the app (mobile) that the bio doesn’t scroll. Past a certain text point it cuts off and there is no way to expand to read the rest.

Also noticed you can’t attach a picture in forum while on mobile app. Am I missing something? Was the option there before?
