Samsung's Gear S2 is a smartwatch designed to enhance the everyday life of the consumer by providing convenient access to essential and customisable content right from one’s wrist.
Early smartwatch faces allowed health enthusiasts to instantly measure and monitor their fitness and diet data at a glance, while sports fans could keep a close eye on the big game, said a statement.
However, despite the variety of customizable features available, there is always room for creativity, it said.
The new tool will allow anyone interested in creating a Gear S2 watch face to design, produce and distribute their own using a variety of editing tools. While such a programme may sound complicated, users do not need to be professional coders or designers to use it.
Utilising a basic UI, the programme will let users choose from a selection of design elements, such as watch hands and backgrounds, to create their own watch face. Additionally, they can also upload their own designs created with professional programmes like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and apply them according to their preferences.
Anyone interested in creating a Gear watch face can join the beta version of Gear Watch Designer that is now available for download, said the statement.
The steps include create a personalised background, select style, get things in order and pivot for differentiation.
Once the watch face design is complete, click 'Run' on the top right of the screen to check if it works.
The users can review their design while adjusting time and battery status. Click 'Run on Device' to transfer the watch face to the Gear S2.
The programme will also make it fun to experiment with different options, such as adding an additional “Day of Week” dial to the watch face. In fact, one of the best things about Gear Watch Designer is that it allows users to set up the theme exactly the way they want.
Meanwhile, the Samsung store carries several strap options in a range of materials. The Gear S2 Mendini Sports Band Brand Edition in urethane is available in blue- black, dark brown, black and navy; the standard Gear S2 Sports Band is available in either red or warm gray while the Gear S2 Classic Band in leather is available in brown and gray. - TradeArabia News Service
