Does not work Does not seem to work with Huawei watch. Seems to set random brightness values without any rhyme or reason. Think this could be a good app if it had some simplified settings. Not sure how many users need different brightness levels for biking vs driving. Would be better if user could manually set brightness by hours/time (ie brightness level 1 from 9pm to 6am).
Does exactly what it should This app is incredibly simple and allows me to actually see my wash screen in daylight. For some reason, my Asus Zenwatch constantly readjusts to low brightness leaving me unable to view the screen anywhere but indoors. This app keeps the brightness high when is the text that I am driving walking etc. The activity detection is very accurate in my experience. can set it anywhere from low to high depending on what you are doing and it will seamlessly change the brightness settings.
An option to work with watches with an "auto" mode would be nice. For example, set the brightness to adjust automatically during the day, then switch to lowest at night. My Moto 360v1is annoyingly bright when it happens to come on while I'm driving at night, even when it's set to auto brightness.
Necessary for all Android Wear 2.0 watches without an ambient light sensor! Will save me from too-bright eye strain at night, and allow me to use my watch outside during the day, since Google removed the "brightness boost" feature in Android Wear 2.0, rendering my watch basically useless. Google and Asus should refer people to this app, before they return their Android Wear 2.0 watches which don't include an ambient-light sensor. Their products make no sense without this.
Galaxy Gear Live (1st gen wear) Works well at detecting when I'm driving. A life saver for setting the watch bright enough to actually read while out and then drop it back down while at work. The gear live lacks any light sensor so this is almost a required app for that device. It's pretty accurate about finding sunrise/set time for wherever your phone is on the globe, set different levels for day/night to each activity. Profiles that are geofenced instead of activity based as well would be a welcome update.
I love this app! Unfortunately I'm having some problem to use it since my LG Urbane 2nd switched to AW2. Is there a way to use it with Android Wear 2.0?
- Bug fixes
- Add ability to customize brightness levels during the night as well instead of forcing it to the lowest level.
