Last month I wrote about my decision to buy a Fitbit Versa. As I noted in the conclusion I thought I might end up writing some of the apps that I wanted. It turned out that the first thing I wanted was a watch face like my beloved TimeStyle on the pebble.
I wanted to stay true to Dan’s wonderful design goals. However in the first release I was going to cut down the amount of configuration so I could get something produced and usable.
In addition to having a large clear time display I wanted
- To be able to set the colour of all watchface elements
- Select 12 or 24 hour display, or use the setting from your fitbit account
- Zero pad the date day
- Zero pad the hour
- Vibrate when the bluetooth status changes
- See at a glance the device battery level.
Now that it is released and in the app store I am pretty pleased with the result, I use it every day and I am already getting feature requests.
Its open source so people can contribute if they want to.
