Orbital Classic: Instructions


This face automatically adapts to round or square displays.

If you are using the WM Phone Notification Mode app (available on Google Play) your phone's notification mode will be shown near the inner end of the top hour mark on the outer dial. A pair of bars in a V-shape indicate that the phone is set to vibrate-only mode. A single horizontal bar indicates that the phone is set to silent mode.

Tapping the top center will cycle through the two non-time modes and then back to the normal time mode.

The second mode is Settings, which allow you to customize the face. You can control which information is displayed. You can also change the colors of the foreground and background. Note that changing the background color also sets a compatible foreground color, so you will want to set the background color first and then modify the foreground color setting.

The third mode displays what touching different areas of the face will do. You can use the tap functions in this mode, but they will also work in the normal time mode. Most of these are shortcuts that launch other applications on the watch.

Tapping the center will move the main hands to a position where all sub-dials and windows are unobstructed. Tapping the center again will move them back. The hands will resume their positions automatically after one minute.

Tapping the bottom sub-dial will toggle your phone between normal and vibrate-only notifications modes if you are using the WM Phone Notification Toggle app (available on Google Play). Otherwise it will toggle the display between normal and all black.

Anyone who is comfortable with Watchmaker can define their own tap shortcuts. There are six pre-defined tap areas available on the face with their label layers right after each. Look near the right end of the layer list for black squares with names that end in "User Definable Tap Action". You can change the Tap Action of those layers to whatever you want. You can also change the following label by simply editing the text.
