Intro: Custom Smartwatch Face (Video) [Gearbest]
If you don't prefer to read, you can skip it and watch the video instead where I have explained all the steps in detail.
If you do, then continue reading the written steps along with pictures in the following steps.
If you're familiar with the Smartwatch brand NO.1, then you know that the models G3 and G4 and a couple more have a completely round screen and come with an option to upload your own custom smartwatch. In this project, I'm going to show you how to upload your own watch face to your No.1 G3 smartwatch. Additionally, in the video you can see how you can make your own dial face using Adobe Photoshop or any other image editing software.
I also shared a trick to upload multiple watch faces at once and change them anytime you like and I also went ahead and collected all the dial faces I could find for this watch and you can find their download links in the end of this instructables.
Before buying the watch, I saw on its product page that it had the Samsung gear S2 classic dial face. It was nowhere to be found on the watch or anywhere else on the internet so I made my own. You can download that too for free by following the link in the end.
Here's a link to the watch's product page in case you are interested to buy one: No.1 G3 Smartwatch
Let's get started now.
Step 1: Connect Your Watch
- Download a smartwatch face and extract the five images inside into a separate folder.(Links for watch face at the end of the instructable.)
- Connect your NO.1 G3 smartwatch to the PC using the magnetic charger that came along with it.
- Immediately, two options will appear on the watch screen, 'Mass storage' and 'Com port'. Select Mass storage.
- This will open up the watch's built-in memory directory on the PC screen
Step 2: Transfer Your Files
- Open up the watch directory on the PC.
- You'll find a folder named 'clock'. If you can't find one. make a new folder and name it clock.
- Copy all the files from your watch folder. All five of them and paste it into the clock folder.
- That's it. Now disconnect your watch and tap and hold on the home screen and you will see your newly installed watch face will show in the selections.
