    1. SmartWatch Ticks I’m here again, glad to hear the news and watch the new video. The community in awesome. Thank you again Ticks, usefull channel for ALL the community.

    2. Thanks and good morning! While you were sleeping I converted about 50 clock skin folders to play on the KW88 and WOW! They look SOOO AWESOME!!! I was so sad about loosing custom faces on the KW88 and now I can’t wait for the other watch companies to push out the same firmware update. That one tiny thumbnail change made all the difference. I may do another quick video tomorrow (night here for me) so you all can see how magnificent these faces appear on the KW88.

    1. SmartWatch Ticks your right, sorry… I heard it might have android wear and thays what threw me off 🙂 I appreciate you

  1. +SmartWatch Ticks Do any of the smartwatches have features that stand out (for examples rotating bezel or lte support)? …

    Which round android watch with android 5.1 1.39 inch screen has the most battery (mah)?

  2. I am so happy I found and subscribed to your channel. These android watches have re kindled the same excitement I felt when the first android phones came out. Thank you.

    Anywho. If you remove the original file and keep the duplicate do the number of watch faces change?

    1. You’re welcome! Right now it’s the hottest tech growing since the phones are saturated. Lots of new features yet to come on wearables. Welcome!

    1. Alfonso is right. Each watch face has a bunch of files in a folder. That folder is then zipped to download. When you get the zip file, you unzip it and look inside the folder. It is in there that you will see the click_skin_model.png file.

  3. hey I just wanted to let you know I just got home and my kw88 watch was here waiting for me so I’m going to try it out and watch a couple of your videos and hopefully install some watch faces other stuff on it the other watch I ordered it still hasn’t came yet but I actually got it really fast it only took not even seven days to get here from China

  4. great video Mr Ticks .. l will need to go through all my KW88/FINOW faces and make the amendments. Nice to see the animation and second hand sweep work on the KW88.

  5. So the Kw88 has no site where you can find old firmware updates so people can flash back to older firmware. It that’s the case the company really does suck and takes away a users option to change back to the firmware that worked. Food for thought for the so called higher sinware developers. Adrian.

  6. l have a possible solution to the multi face situation. If you install and open Eric’s Standalone installer then you only see a single face, tap on it and it all works…. l did uninstall Eric’s original launcher as l think if you have multiple launchers then they all open the preview face. See what you think Mr Ticks
