    sadly, watchmaker thinks that your link is an invalid watch file.:(

    Bummer. Problem is occurring on iOS version of watchmaker apparently. The desktop link I posted earlier also crashes when it tries to load the face "null pointer exception"

    If I could only tie my work email/calendar to an android phone I'd ditch this POS iPhone 8 and get a Pixel...

    Try downloading the file first using the Dropbox or the browser and then opening it later in WatchMaker. Worth a try.

    So I've been reading up on OLED displays and image burn in as it relates to ambient mode. This is one of the main reasons why the stock Tag watch faces feature a skeleton-like ambient mode. Something to think about while designing watchmaker faces. I've made adjustments to ambient mode on my derivative calibre 5 watchface to support this:

    True for the Connected 41 and 45. The one I have is the Connected 46, this one uses an LCD display which is not suspect to burn in. So I prefer watchfaces that have a "full featured" ambient mode.

    The reason for a skeleton watchface on OLED isn't solely related to burn in, but also to save battery life. On OLED, fewer lit pixels means less battery usage.

    LCD doesn't make a difference between bright or dark pixels battery-wise, which allows for bright / white ambient mode watchfaces without hitting the battery more than dark ones. See the attached photos for active and ambient mode of the same watchface.

    Edit existing faces would be a sensible approach

    working on my custom watch face. Ambient mode shown. I race sailboats so this update launches a sail-race countdown timer when I tap @ 12:00 and a split timer app for those close finishes when I tap @ 9:00.

    This watch may be the only smartwatch tough enough for the fore-deck of a NM36 :)
