Samsung - Gear S3 Frontier / Classic - Chronograph+ (watchface/stopwatch)
12 hours (main, 12 minute step)
60 minutes (main, 1 minute step)
60 seconds (small, left, 1 second step)
Stopwatch: (activate with ‘stopwatch’ icon)
sweep seconds (main)
30 minutes (small, top, 1 minute step)
10 hours (small, bottom, 10 minute step)
Should the main seconds hand just sit on vertical (when not used for stopwatch)? YES
How big should the icons be? Where should they be placed? What colour, level of contrast (against coloured background)?
I redid the
Tachymeter scale, using my own maths. Is it now correct? (It does NOT match original.)
Changed seconds sweep hand, to ONLY stopwatch usage.
Replying to you questions…
Yes, the main seconds hand should stau at 12h (vertical up) when not used for the stopwatch. That’s what normally happens in mechanical clocks.
The icons should be slightly smaller than the clock numbers font. Regarding the colour, maybe a grau color, slighly lighter than the background. That way you could see that they were there, but they would not be “in your face”.
The tachymeter scale appears correct
Just are just my opinions, but I hope the input helps.
Minor update: icon colours, enabled full functions (colour picker).
corrected rotation, for stopwatch hour hand
changed weekday disc, to uppercase
(dark) improved colour/shading for background
added accel./deccel. to stopwatch hands (for reset)
removed (accidental) dim elements, on main face
Looks really good! I have trying to implement a face with a built in chrono/stopwatch and cannot get the second hand to rotate accurately. When I press the Start/Stop the hand turns but it rotates very, very slowly.
I am only using the #SWES# tag in the rotation. Did you have to use a different code to get it to rotate properly?
As discussed here:
How to setup elements for digital stopwatch
They (Facer) have yet to provide a tag for:
Smooth Rotation value for Stopwatch seconds
seconds to rotation, you need to multiply by 6.
0.001 … 59.999
0.006 … 359.9939
I have gone further than that, and use:
Note: This actually uses the Stopwatch milliseconds tag.
Cool! Did you test it on a smart watch yet?
Is the rotation as smooth at it?
Still testing this (and another more ambitious stopwatch design) …
[WatchFace] TAG Heuer Calibre 36 RS2 (stopwatch)
Would welcome feedback / testing from others.
That works well, thanks! Your formula works well for minutes also. I just changed the math and it seems to be functioning accurately: (((
I use math notation:
Question how would one make the hand spin representing Milliseconds?
What hand rotation would you be using?
1000ms in 1 second would be too fast.
You might want to show
milliseconds on pause/stop …
Tribute for Calibre S 'Link' Chronograph 2009. With functional stopwatch (with 1/10 and 1/100th second hands), in white and steel (silver) with dark blue highlights. Sub-faces show date, when not used for stopwatch. [Corrected hand logic]
Simply trying to make a small hand rotate once every second
Also you wouldn’t have a way of shortening the numbers created by the Stopwatch tag.
#SWES# will give you continously increasing count of elapsed seconds with a fractional part
You want the hand to rotate once per second, that is 360 degrees per second, so all you have to do is multiply
#SWES# by 360.
