  • Fix for third-party single icon complications not showing
  • Slightly larger text size for complications/widgets in the left, right & bottom round content areas

v 1.2.8

Improved complications (both built-in & Wear 2.0)

Ksana Sweep Watch Face just got updated; first to 1.2.6 & soon after to version 1.2.7.

Here’s what’s new

v 1.2.6

  • Digital font for 12/24 -hour clocks complications
  • Changed to around 40% transparency for sub dial backgrounds when the main dial background is provided via a third-party complication

Direct access to a complication’s full details page via double tap

On Ksana Sweep Watch Face you can tap a content area to maximize it along with its complication data. Tapping it again will minimize it back to its normal state.

I’ve got much positive feedback for having this type of simple toggle interactivity on Ksana Sweep, but I’ve also got a few request for making a tap instead take you directly to a full details page (for complications that have a full details page).

An example of a full details page is the page displaying step count information on Google Fit. On Ksana Sweep you get to this page by triggering the Step counter complication action.

How to update to Android Wear 2.0

Even though you should get the latest Android Wear 2.0 update automatically (over-the-air starting February 15, 2017), it may take awhile. To perhaps speed things up you can make sure everything relevant is updated & manually check for System updates.

Start by connecting both your smartwatch & phone to their chargers & make sure they are connected (preferably via WIFI).
