    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:

    ★ 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!)
