This app is exactly what I was looking for! I primarily wanted some way I could set up my Pixel Watch like my Pixel phone (i.e. swipe over one screen to find icons of all my frequently launched apps). Be prepared to sit with it for a bit to understand its behavior so you can get it just right; it is a complex and full featured application. Well worth the very reasonable fee to upgrade to premium, and well worth the time invested in exploring its many options. Kudos to the developer!

Thank you for all your support! The crazy thing is that Wear OS at its 2014 debut (i.e. Android Wear) acted exactly the way you describe, but over the years Google turned it into the wreck it is now. They got rid of the amazing Google Now cards, the peek card, wrist gestures, and swipe access to apps. Bubble Cloud restores as much as they allow.

This app is pretty incredible. I can't believe the amount of detail that has gone into so many aspects of customization. That said, this app is not for everyone; it takes some time to learn. That said, the developer is amazing in the level of support provided right within the app. Almost any question I could come up with as I set things up was answered by a YouTube video that I could launch right from the place where your question probably came to you (on the phone and on my watch). For example, in figuring out how to customize actions that occur with two taps vs. a long press on a button, there was a YouTube link right next to the option that launched a video explaining and SHOWING how to use the option. Every video has been short, focused, and relatively clear. If you take some time to get to know how the app works and to customize your Wear OS watch in the ways that are possible with this app, you'll get a LOT more out of having a smartwatch to begin with.

Thank you for such a detailed review. I am glad the video documentation has been useful. Recently users requested more written documentation, so with the death of Google+ I have now moved all troubleshooting and feature highlight posts into a dedicated (and searchable!) website with thousands of posts about the app. It might be worth a look too.

Powerful and flexible. You can do a lot with this. I am no computer whiz but I have created several themes since installing this 2 days ago, with new watch hands and dials. I was able to add more bubbles including extra complications (had to pay to unlock that, which is fine since I like the app). Only thing I will say is be prepared to sit down for a bit and figure it out. You can have it automatically set up a basic setup, but if you want to get into it more, you'll need to watch some videos and experiment a bit.
