      Watch faces are a special type of application that runs on the home screen of a Tizen wearable watch. Different watch faces have different purposes and can be interacted with in diverse ways. A watch face creates the first impression of the watch and holds value as a fashion accessory.
      Anyone can make a watch face using Galaxy Watch Designer (GWD).[1] However, GWD limits how many different features you can add in a watch face. On watch faces, data is displayed to the user in the form of “complications,” which show individual data points such as steps or heart rate. While GWD gives you a set of complications you can add to designs, it does not allow you to add custom complications, as the numbers of complications are fixed inside the GWD tool. With Tizen Studio, you can create complications that pull in data from your own custom sources or perform custom actions, such as launching a separate application or opening a settings menu. With Tizen Studio, you have more options than the ones GWD gives you.
      Using Tizen Web/Native/.NET APIs, developers can add a large number of functionalities on watch faces programmatically. In this article, we’ll start by developing a basic watch face using Tizen Web API.
      Prerequisites
      You need to define your app as a watch face application through an application category in the config.xml file. To achieve that, add wearable_clock under category.

      <widget xmlns:tizen="http://tizen.org/ns/widgets" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" id="http://yourdomain/WatchFace" version="1.0.0" viewmodes="maximized"> <tizen:application id="msWLHN3Mpw.WatchFace" package="msWLHN3Mpw" required_version="2.3.1"/> <tizen:category name="http://tizen.org/category/wearable_clock"/> <content src="index.html"/> <feature name="http://tizen.org/feature/screen.shape.circle"/> <feature name="http://tizen.org/feature/screen.size.all"/> <icon src="icon.png"/> <name>WatchFace</name> <tizen:profile name="wearable"/> </widget> Resources
      For an analog watch, we need three hands for second, minute, and hour. We also need a background image with a marked time index.
      The following table shows resolutions for images in our example:
      Image Width (pixels) Height (pixels) Background 360 360 Hour hand 15 360 Minute hand 16 360 Second hand 16 360
      Implementation
      We need to create a <div> element for each component, such as background, hour hand, minute hand, and second hand. <div id="container"> <div id="background"> <div id="components-main"> <div id="hand-main-hour"></div> <div id="hand-main-minute"></div> <div id="hand-main-second"></div> </div> </div> </div> We are using an image as the watch face background, so we need to set the background image by setting styles in the CSS file. Background Image: The clock time index is set on top of the background image. It could be a separate <div> element, but we assembled the clock index with the green background into one image (see Figure 1).

      Figure 1: Watch face background image

      CSS
      #background { width: 100%; height: 100%; background-image: url("../image/watch_bg.png"); } We also need to set styles for watch face hands separately. The app image folder holds three images, one each for the hour hand, minute hand, and second hand. Then we’ll add some info to the CSS to adjust the position, size, and so on.
      The style set for the minute hand is shown below: #hand-main-minute { position: absolute; left: 172px; top: 0px; width: 16px; height: 360px; background-image: url("../image/watch_hand_minute.png"); background-position: center top; background-size: contain; } We need to define a function that will rotate hands by a specific angle with its element ID. function rotateElement(elementID, angle) { var element = document.querySelector("#" + elementID); element.style.transform = "rotate(" + angle + "deg)"; } We also need to have the hand update every second. To do that, we’ll set an interval to call the updateTime() function every second. // Update the watch hands every second setInterval(function() { updateTime(); }, 1000); We are using the getCurrentDateTime() function of Tizen Time API[2] to get the current time object. From this time object, we can get the hour, minute, and second. var datetime = tizen.time.getCurrentDateTime(), hour = datetime.getHours(), minute = datetime.getMinutes(), second = datetime.getSeconds(); Now we are going to call our defined function rotateElement() for the hour, minute, and second hands. // Rotate the hour/minute/second hands rotateElement("hand-main-hour", (hour + (minute / 60) + (second / 3600)) * 30); rotateElement("hand-main-minute", (minute + second / 60) * 6); rotateElement("hand-main-second", second * 6); We need to set an event listener for visibilitychange to update the screen when the display turns on from the off state. // Add an event listener to update the screen immediately when the device wakes up document.addEventListener("visibilitychange", function() { if (!document.hidden) { updateTime(); } }); We also need to set an event and update the screen when the device’s time zone changes.
      // Add eventListener to update the screen when the time zone is changed tizen.time.setTimezoneChangeListener(function() { updateTime(); }); Additionally, we can set an event listener for ambient mode change. In this article, we added the listener and printed a console message when the ambient mode changed. It will not change anything on the watch during ambient mode, because we haven’t updated the sample watch face for ambient mode. window.addEventListener("ambientmodechanged", function(e) { if (e.detail.ambientMode === true) { // Rendering ambient mode case console.log("Ambient mode"); } else { // Rendering normal case console.log("Normal mode"); } }); Demo
      A sample watch face app can be downloaded here, and the final watch face is shown in Figure 2.

      Figure 2: Demo watch face developed using Tizen Web
      Conclusion
      This article demonstrates how to start developing watch face apps with Tizen web API using Tizen Studio. We can now add more functionalities and change the watch into more than just a device that shows time.

      Thanks to everyone who came to Samsung Developer Conference last week or tuned in to the livestream! Here were some of our favorite moments that weren’t covered in the Day 1 and Day 2 recaps.

      Code Lab
      Code Lab sat in the center of Tech Square and allowed devs to get hands-on experience with the latest SDKs and developer tools. Samsung engineers were there for support and fun coding challenges gave attendees the chance to win exclusive prizes.

      PENUP
      The PENUP app is a social network for designers on the Galaxy smartphone. You can learn how to draw digitally by tracing on top of a video clip or background image – it’s a cool way to turn photos into masterpieces! The PENUP team secured two digital artists for SDC19. The artists roamed around and used a Tab S6 and S Pen to sketch attendees and capture the action at SDC19. There were also great tutorials on the S Pen and S Pen SDK in Tech Square!

      Laugh and Learn
      Senior Developer Evangelist Tony Morelan and comedian Corey Rosen had a high-energy comedy and improv presentation on Day 1 called Galaxy Watch Face Design from Concept to Completion. Attendees and designers collaborated in real time to create an interactive Galaxy watch face. It was a fun experiment that demonstrated how easy it is to design without coding. The audience was able to quickly create a playful watch face.

      Fit @ SDC
      One theme of SDC19 was collaboration. Samsung is forging new partnerships with brands to help devs have more tools at their disposal and reach a wider audience. Two such partners are Under Armour and Skimble, and each morning they put together a wellness activity that featured their new Galaxy Store apps.

      Day 1: Yoga-Centric Exercise Class with Skimble
      This class was led by a trainer from Made for Samsung partner Skimble. Yoga mats and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2s were available for attendees, and they could download the Workout Trainer by Skimble app to follow along with a Samsung-specific workout. Everyone was able to monitor their heart rate on the watch while getting their move on!

      Day 2: Fun Run/Walk with Under Armour
      Under Armour organized a two-mile walk or three-mile run for attendees before the conference. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2s were given to participants and synced with the Map My Run app to track their distance, pace, and calorie burn.

      Devs, we hope that SDC19 inspired you to continue innovating. From troubleshooting to new platform training, the Samsung Developer Program is always here to help. If you aren’t a member, consider joining our community today.
