PAmbiant watchface

This is my first watchface with Notepad++ and GIMP.

Main goal is to immitate as pixel perfect as possible the ambiant mode present in the newer Android 7.1.1 watches.

The CollinsFamilly one has been a great jumpstarter for me but is has some small flaws (yeah… I have OCD for some things) :

  • Hands are not the same lenght as the ambiant one.
  • Sharpness is not as good compared to the ambiant one
  • Seconds hands is not present.

So I tried my best to fix those differences, starting with a blank xml file and screenshots from the ambiant mode (hardest thing to accomplish since regular screenshots does not take into account the ambiant mode). This has been a fun little Learning experience so far.

The next step would be to integrate weather and stepcount, but I would have to either find the exact same font as the ambiant one or recreate the one from the screenshots I have…

Edit: Red battery line is at 15%, at the position where power saving activates (at least in my configuration).

Thanks. I’m working on some other options to show.

I have added a few options.

To be added is digital time, date, etc. top part is reserved for this.

Things that I haven’t fixed yet… why are the zeros showing while i have an empty image available for display? Anybody can cue what I did wrong?

Here is my version 2
