Thanks for the quick response and the link. Very helpful.
I have some faces designed with Tizen Studio that enable an active second hand in dim mode. Maybe the @Facer_Official gurus can find a way to leverage the method for Gear watches. I’ve never seen anything to equal it on my Wear OS devices.
Not GWD. I thought I had a couple of faces from Tizen Studio. I’m wondering if I’m mistaken. All the faces that I have with active dim mode second hands are all the stock Samsung faces that are built-in. Perhaps Samsung has some tricks up their sleeves that we don’t have access to.
I’m checking my Tizen Studio files again just to be sure.
I’m thinking that it’s probably best to avoid the persistent seconds due to battery drain.
I’ve tested with Tizen Studio 2.4 and it’s pretty hard on the battery.
The watch code using encore_animator_add with callbacks seems to be what’s needed.
I love the Facer Creator application for it’s power, simplicity and multi-platform compatibility. It looks a little daunting at first, but I should work on my Premier Designer status. No point in spending time in Tizen Studio for one feature only to be limited to one device OS.
I have default watch faces on my Tag WearOS watch, which in AOD (dim) mode have smooth second hand movement, so this is indeed poss as either Google and/or Tag do not think its a significant enough battery drain to enable it.
Perhaps they just delib lock out a 3rd party doing it?
