    1. set the token to “ddd”
    2. click “Localization” button under global section
    3. replace the week name with full name
    4. build the app

    The online watch will still show the short name, but when your app runs in your watch, it will be full name you set under localization window.
    Please make sure there are enough room for the full string.

    go to the top right section that says “Save & Build” clicking this will download a zip that contains the watchface

    1. download the zip file and unzip it, you should get a .prg file.
    2. connect your watch to your computer with the device’s USB cable.
    3. wait till the icon of your device shows up, double click to open it, and you should see the Garmin folder, open it, and double click to open the Apps folder in this Garmin folder.
    4. drag the unzipped .prg file into this Garmin\\Apps folder.
    5. unhook your watch and your designed watchface should show up in a few seconds.

    Note- If you’re using a Mac you’ll need to download Android File Transfer utility

    Hello, I created watchface and when I tried to save and build I got this answer:

    It looks like that some custom fonts were missing from your design somehow.

    You might need to re-import the custom fonts back.

    How does localization work? I set the language to Polish, I enter the Polish names of the days of the week, but the English ones are still displayed.
    dddd does not work, the website has the full name of the day of the week but the watch only shows the first 3 letters + D.

    Click Localization button, select Polish language, then enter the strings, and save. Then save and build your app, you should have Polish support. You will need to set the watch’s language to Polish too.

    For full week name to work, you will need to set the token to ddd, and change the localization three letters string of week day to full week day name. For example Mon will be Monday, and so on.

    You can open the shared design, then click “change” button under global settings section, and select what device you want.

    It will resize widgets that are resizable to fit into the new screen size. Make adjustments you want and click “save & build” button.
