[Watch Face] Modern Earthshade Daylight

There are a few unique features of this watch face.

  1. The current daytime weather condition rises on the right side of the screen at dawn. During the day it makes its way to the top centre at peak noon . By dusk the sun dips on the left side of the screen into dark. The current weather condition then changes to a night time condition in the black of night and by midnight, it is at the bottom centre before starts to rise to the right. Repeat.

  2. The Earth is in the middle of the screen, rotates such that your location is towards you, and your longitude/latitude crosshair lines are shown in red, with an accuracy within the circle. At high noon, the earth is in full daylight. At midnight, the earth is in full darkness. As the day progresses, and on an hourly basis, the earth shadow cascades accross the earth, and then recedes, depending upon the time of day. Your location will accurately be shown in shadow or daylight.

  3. The Earth in the middle of the screen is accurately tilted by 23.5 degrees to the solar plane. As seasons change you will see the yellow line in the middle of the earth represending the solar plan shift on a monthly basis to reflect the location of the earth in the orbital plan, relative to the 23.5 degree tilt, relative to the solar plane.

  4. The hours of daylight and night time are reflected in the pie graph around the earth. The top of the pie in light blue during the daytime, reflects the amount of dalight hours of a 24 hour clock, with 0 and 24 at the top, 12 at the bottom. This light blue area turns dark blue at night time. The sunrise hour is on the right indicated in yellow. The sunset hour is on the left indicated in grey. A red line and the current weather condition are at the current time of the 24 hour clock.

The current moon phase is on the bottom, along with the steps, in the green bar. Below that is a battery level indicator, which is a progress bar that is green when the battery is above 60%, red below 30% and yellow in between.

Current temperature is on the top left. Current location is at the top centre. Steps and moon phase are at the bottom. A watch battery level scale just below the steps. When the watch is below 30% it is red, above 60% it is green, and yellow in between.

24 hour or 12 hour mode compatible. Imperial or metric compatible. Regular or AOD mode compatible.

Since the usual hyperlinks aren’t working too well in the forums, here is an indirect hyperlink to copy and paste, and a photo.

I should note, this watch face doesn’t display properly on the android phone app preview. I don’t know about the ios app preview. The actual watch (my samsung) and the web browser preview is fine.

I was asked to do another copy without the steps. I must say, I think it is a bit better…
