Oh Yum. I see g in the Formula. We can get the Accelerometer reading involved there. Like a face with Tide readings that can not work every where local calibration is essential. I can not guess how to do that without VAR.
Please Inspect this. You will see the top layers have a method for imputing a large number with 4 VARs.
Yup, the people, the help, the support, the feedback, the affirmation of your work make Facer what it is. WM has NO community unless you think MeWe is it. Countless groups there see little to no activity. Bust your ass, make an amazing watchface, get 10 likes if your lucky. Then jog onto one of the many “thief” sites and see your work there benefitting someone else. F*** that!
You will just spend time learning another UI. Spend the Time here. I bet WM does not have thousands of Hands, Dials, Backgrounds and GIFs dotted about the Community like Diamonds waiting to be picked up off the Beach. All that is required is to do a little search and follow the Crumb Trail.
Facer is not a Watch Making Platform it is an Adventure for the Creative Mind.
Intrestingly the Old Longhand Moon Phase Percent formulas developed 3 or 4 yers ago are still more accurate than the new Moon Percent Tag.
We are all riding allong on the shoulders of Giants.
In general it seems cheaper. It costs you as much to get access to extra features for good, as it costs you facer pro for month. (the other options I do not care much about, I wont pay anything “premium”. Either I can make it on my own when I get me PRO again someday, or I can be without it)
Here are the differences between Facer and Watchmaker:
Sharing: Facer: The Facer app or website Wacthmaker: Exports a .watch file that contains all the components of the watch (literally an archive of the watch), you can encrypt it to prevent changes, otherwise anyone with the .watch file can modify it. You can also share your watch on the Watchmaker website, and at Watchawear.
Advanced features: VARs, complications, touch interaction, themes, etc: Facer: Requires Facer Creator Pro $49.99 per year Watchmaker: All features included free
Sales opportunities: Facer: Must be invited to be a Facer Creator Partner. Watchmaker: Anyone can post faces for sale at watchmaker.com, Google Play, etc.
Community support: Facer: Very robust community support at Facer.com, Facebook, Discord. Watchmaker: Wiki
Frankly, both sites serve their intended users well(Watchmaker users basically expect no support).
It’s not a Facer v Watchmaker situation, rather it’s a two sides of the same coin situation. In spite of my rantings that birthed this thread, I’m not leaving Facer or Watchmaker, I’ll use them in conjunction with each other.
If I download this face [Watch Face] Pilot Carbon Steel it displays the altitude as 7,980 ft when it should be 2,589 ft. The correction factor is (7,980)(0.35563186813186813186813186813187) - I like exact numbers.
BUT, When I download my Watchmaker faces, the altitude is correctly reported.
Oh, and anything near to a factor of 3 looks to me like it could be a unit conversion issue. Unless the conversion from pressure to altitude is being carried out by the watch, Facer will be doing the conversion using a particular formula and values for the various constants. That formula and values of constants might be slightly different than the ones that other platforms use. So, a variation in altitude between platforms is not surprising. Correction values of around 3 to 3.5 that you are seeing could be due ft to m unit settings / conversion issues.
Is your weather station pressure compensated for altitude? That is, it is normal to adjust a barometer so that it shows pressure as it would be if the barometer were at sea level. That might explain why your watch is showing 927 and your weather station 1084.
If you live around 2,500 ft then I don’t know what is going on with Facer on your watch - the tag works correctly on my Tizen based watch. If you raise a new support ticket ( giving as many details as you can ) and tell me the support ticket number I will raise one of my own and quote yours as well.
Oh and something else to try to see if the issue can be isolated - you could try different combinations of unit settings on your phone/watch and in the Facer app on you watch to see what happens. The results of that test might also be helpful to Facer to see what might be going on.
And, don’t worry about the values that Creator shows - these are meaningless. In fact if you press fast forward on the “time machine” at the bottom of the screen you will see these values changing very quickly.
