Color in ambient mode for Ksana Sweep users

Got quite a few requests to add color to the different ambient/dimmed modes on Ksana Sweep watch face. I’ve been a bit stubborn and refused to make this change because I believed it would hurt battery life and perhaps be hard to implement without risking burn-in on users watch screens.

I was wrong (to my defence the ambient mode documentation available is bit confusing and contradictory).

Ksana Sweep now (since version 1.1.7) has color in ambient mode unless the watch uses a so called low-bit ambient (reduced color space) battery saving technique (most watches don’t).

There are also a few new ambient mode alternatives: display 24 or 12 -hour digital clock + date, daily steps or battery level.


custom ambient modes, some with colors
