  • Good point. That would work perfectly if I could use my code snippet, or save it as a jpg, in place of the sunset.

  • Just a note that a slidey clock got mentioned in­8196/ and it's now available at­

  • @Gordon, I saw that! It's awesome to see more and more getting coded. I'm excited to see the next 2 years of the Bangle!

  • I finally have the code for my Existentialist's Watch. The watchface shows the word "Now" in the center of the screen. If you find a need for the terrestrial time, press the button and the current time will display for five seconds, then revert back to "Now".

    // Display the "Now" message on the Bangle.js 2 watch
    function showNow() {
      g.setFontAlign(0, 0);
      g.setFont("Vector", 48);
      g.drawString("Now", g.getWidth() / 2, g.getHeight() / 2);
      return true;
    // Display the current time on the Bangle.js 2 watch
    function showTime() {
      // Get the current time
      var date = new Date();
      var hours = date.getHours();
      var minutes = date.getMinutes();
      // Format the time as a string
      var timeString = hours.toString().padStart(2, "0") + ":" +
                       minutes.toString().padStart(2, "0") + ":" +;
      // Display the time on the screen
      g.setFontAlign(0, 0);
      g.setFont("Vector", 42);
      g.drawString(timeString, g.getWidth() / 2, g.getHeight() / 2);
      // Revert to the "Now" display after 5 seconds
      setTimeout(showNow, 5000);
    // Set up a button listener to display the time
    setWatch(showTime, BTN1, { repeat: true });
    // Display the "Now" message on start-up

    It's simplistic, no widgets and such, but I'm sure somebody will jazz it up if they want.
    This is the main reason I bought the Bangle.js 2. So happy now.

  • Here it is.
