The Tizen Multi Watch App hit the Samsung Apps Store with version 1.0, and soon after version 2.0 has been submitted by the developer to the Samsung Apps Store. The Interesting selling point of Multi watch is that you can actually edit the clock face on the Tizen Gear 2 Smartwatch itself, and build your own clock face. Now you can load wsthemes as well, downloaded from gearfaces.com.
 

"Multi-Watch is not a single watch face, but any watch face you like"

Notes from the developer

  • .wstheme files (for loading themes), can be found on gearfaces.com
  • Currently the Multi-Watch supports analog theme files only, we are working on the support of digital watch WsThemes
  • Some properties of Analog watch WsTheme files might not be supported yet, e.g. date format and position, we are working on the support of that

 

Please Note: The application is currently under going Samsung Apps Store testing, and it is hoped that it will be available to download in the next few days.

  1. that DOES NOT WORK! for wsthemes. The only thing that happens when you click in the bottom left corner is that it changes color of the minute and hour hands? I specifically downloaded exactly the same watchfaces that they showed it worked with, and put them in the downloads folder on the watch, and NOTHING! it is very frustrating! What ever happened to the actual watch styler app they claim is on the samsung app store, and, heaven forbid, the paypal app they also claim is on the samsung app store for the watch. I wish they would stop saying they are in the app store in all of the postings, when all of us are NOT seeing them there!! PLEASE ADVISE!

    1. Hello Ed,

      You are currently using version 1.0 which is not capable of loading wstheme files.

      This article is about version 2.0 which is currently waiting for Samsung Acceptance.
      I hope it will be accepted within a few days from now.

      1. All odd the prior postings all claimed version one did as well, in fact, they showed videos proving it? They even showed videos with watch styler, and paypal on the gear 2, which is so frustrating, because it isn't true! !

        1. nobody said version one could do this.
          version 2 will come in a few days.
          I have nothing to do with paypal.

          1. You are incorrect. I can show you videos that are posted on tizen that show it....

          2. show me such a video please.

            But nevertheless, you will have the promised functionality within a few days.... update is free of charge

          3. Yes you are right, the title of this video gives the wrong impression.
            I made this video while I was waiting for the approval of the first version (in the mean-time I continued developing...).
            This functionality will be in the next version (2.0) which is currently waiting for approval.
