Version 5 of my Simply Light watchface has been released! This version brings a handful of new features and improvements to the table. This release is the first to bring support for the Pebble Time Round (“chalk” in more technical terms). Supporting the round smartwatch is interesting as a bunch of specific tweaks had to be made in order to make it look decent.

The other big feature is a fully configurable status bar. It can be toggled on/off, can have different colors for day and night, and can have 3 different options for data. The status bar can show info about health data and may other options.

The last big improvement is the UI code. It written and completely rewritten for this release. The first iteration was much to unstable to be released. But after refactoring it to only do most actions when needed it improved stability and should help improve performance/battery life.

Grab Simply Light fresh from the Pebble app store. Or check out all the changes in the source.
