Always on - backlight?


#1

on my pebble time … i dont like the whole flicking the watch to turn on the light to see the time. is there a way or an app to keep the light always on?

AFAIK there is none, it is either activated by motion or button.

Sounds like it’s possible for a Watchface to be coded to do it, it’s going to kill your battery though

I wrote a Pebble App a while back called “Backlight”. It allows you to have the backlight automatically turn on when you raise your arm and tilt a little toward you, then turn off again automatically after a certain time.

Incidentally, I later made a change to have it turn off immediately when tilted away from the viewing angle. I need to update the app in the Pebble store (especially before it goes away!).
