WatchMaker CloudSync

UPDATE

As some of you may have noticed, Samsung removed the Companion App for WatchMaker from Galaxy Apps Store.

This was due to Samsung requiring a change in our business model so that we should sell watches on the Samsung platform, as well as on Google and Apple.

We are working closely with Samsung to get this resolved as soon as possible and have already submitted a new version for Samsung to review.

Once the new version is approved, it will work exactly the same as the current version and will not force any additional purchases.

In the meantime, we advise you not to uninstall the WatchMaker Companion App or reset your watch until the app is available again on Galaxy Apps Store.

Apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.

I will post any updates on the issue here


WatchMaker CloudSync is designed exclusively for iOS (iPhone / iPad) users to send watchfaces to Android Wear, Ticwatch2 and Tizen watchfaces.

The idea behind cloudsync is to connect the watch to the cloud only when the user is ready to send a watch from the phone.

Make sure you have installed WatchMaker on your Android Wear, Samsung or Ticwatch device here

Some users have reported you need to disconnect iPhone from android wear for reliable wifi on watch: More Info

Instructions for WatchMaker CloudSync platform.

  1. You need WatchMaker on iOS - get it here
  2. You need to have minimum of WatchMaker 4.1.0 on watch - get from Google Play (if on Android) or get your free copy here
  3. Your watch must be WiFi enabled with a reliable connection established
  4. Long press on your watch (Android Wear) or double tap (Tizen) to get to the WatchMaker settings screen
  5. Enable CloudSync by clicking on the cloud icon (gray background)
  6. If you cant see the CloudSync icon yet, you might have to hit the settings cog under the watchface
  7. If you don't see a cloud like in the screenshot below you have an old version of WatchMaker on watch - please update
  8. This checks your WiFi connection is good and gives a unique 6-digit code
  9. The CloudSync remains connected for 100 seconds and can be re-established at any time using the process above
  10. If the cloud has a green background it indicates WatchMaker CloudSync is enabled
  11. From WatchMaker iOS app, any watch can be send by typing in the same 6-digit code.
  12. These 6-digit codes can be used for any future transfers and will be remembered by the phone and watch apps
  13. Remember CloudSync disconnects on your watch after 100 seconds - if you need to send new watches later on, please remember to repeat from step 4 above.
