Since I keep seeing so many minimal watch faces being published on Facer, I just can’t help but think that people actually want battery friendly watch faces. So, with that in mind, here are four minimalist faces, two analog and two digital styles. All four are minimal, but still have useful information except the last one which is basically just the time with a low battery warning.
And finally, MAG 1690
I decided to add a fourth Ultra Minimalist Analog face.
MAG 1663 is Amazing. I can run it absolute minimum brightness and it is still very clear. We always go white for ECO. But that on I am quite sure is the Answer. Love you vertical steps. That is a lot of work for an ECO Face. It dose not have to be minimal under the Bonnet/Hood.
I like the Time Zone Gem that can only bee seen on some watches in AOD.
I’ts a bit of an odd one. Like for like white is the most battery intensive and red the least.
Th thing is though, you need a lot less white to be visible cross all conditions and on OLEDs a black pixel uses no power at all.
If you use rotated font like this “vertical”, it is super easy

i did this vertical cloning that font , only for numbers
@petruuccios So it can be done with on layer then . Nice font . Got that saved .
Yes and if you navigate thru clonable fonts you can easy modify the set just rotating left the charachters
OH WOW BRILLIANT !!! It will not let me send a short Message .
just for show the easy vertical font use ,link
I suppose If I give myself an account I can download those and see how it works .I am still not sure . the Vertical one looks normal to me .
Ho Ho . What fun , you guys know how to keep me busy. Thanks you and MAG what an Education this Forum Is .
Only the number are vertical , when i have a bit of time i’ll verticalize the letters to,i reworked some lcd font to fixing the number 1 position ,had to create a topic in resource
Nice tips and nice faces in this thread. Thanks guys!
Will have to have a look at FontStuct. I have been using FontForge as a local PC font editor to do things like removing the strike from zeros on and fixinf alignment errors on LCD fonts where the main font does not line up with the 88:88 shadow but it is a 30 year old interface.
Vertical fonts could have made this range much easier for me than If Monday then M, If Tuesday then T…
Cool big bold neon style but the glow make it Total unusable on ticwatch 2020 ,Wish to post a wristshot but doesnt work at now in app
Not only that, it would also allow you to directly use the week day tag, so the text can be localized.
I don’t know if you guys have seen this tag, but it displays a single letter for the day of the week.
#DES# First letter of the day of Week T All
Actually no, but what about the following letters? I understood it so, that without vertical font the 3 letter abbreviation in Rob’s face would need 3 rows of individual letters, which together would build the day description still fixed for one language.
I had seen it bu as abobe it did not help with the following letters.
I’ve had some complaints about the short version of some days (Mon, Tue etc) not translating properly into different languages. One recent one was that the 3-letter abbreviation didn’t use the correct letters for the Polish language. I was requested to use the full name for the weekdays so it would display correct in Polish. (Which I did for him)
Bottom line, no matter what we do or how we do it, it won’t work for everyone or their languages.
