MetaWatch Community Edition is a customized community based Android manager application for the MetaWatch family of smart watches, based on the original MetaWatch Manager reference sources.

★★ STRATA and FRAME watches ★★

MetaWatch Community Edition should now be fully compatible with Strata and Frame watches running the 1.2 (or newer) firmware.

★★ Known issues using Strata/Frame with MW-CE ★★

The following are with fw1.2 - fw1.1 and earlier are considerably more glitchy!

• Middle right (B) button displays corrupted +s screen - MW-CE doesn't (yet) use this button to switch between widget screens - In Preferences / Digital Watch you can pick a new Quick Button Action (currently replay last notification, or display the Actions app)
• You can add multiple pages of widgets, but subsequent ones just show as the 4+s screen instead[/b] - It seems clockless idle pages don't properly display - enable the Preferences / Digital Watch / Clock on Every Page option as a fix

Pre-order a MetaWatch STRATA or MetaWatch FRAME now:

★ Weather ★
NOTE: Using the Weather Underground weather provider needs a free developer API key - you can get one by signing up for a free developer key at (just put for the company website) and then enter it in the MWM preferences screen.

★ Themes ★
Themes can be uploaded at the new Theme Gallery:

★ Languages ★
The App is currently available in English, German, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Dutch and Italian. (Note that the text on the watch is still in English - translations for that will come down the line!)

If you would like to see this app in your language, or would like to improve the existing translations, you can help to translate it at:

MetaWatch Community Edition adds lots of functionality to your MetaWatch such as:

• An Overhauled UI
• Theme support - see
• Widget customisation, with many additional widgets, such as moon phase, phone battery, calendar appointments, four day weather forecasts and much more.
• Widgets on the Analog watch model.
• Actions menu letting you quick dial directly from the watch, read previous notations, and toggle various phone settings.
• Weather Geolocation, and a choice of weather providers (Weather Underground or Yahoo)
• Scrollable SMS messages that stay open until dismissed.
• Caller Photos.
• A Calendar view with month and daily agenda views.
• K-9 and TouchDown email integrations.
• Notify My Android integration - all of your NMA notifications will show up on the watch, so you can get notifications from many different web apps, or services like Growl or Snarl from your desktop.
• Many other tweaks, fixes, optimisations and modifications.

The source can be found on github, and we're always happy to merge in improvements from the community

    This would be great if it worked with the latest firmware, so much potential but is worthless now.
