A guide on how to install onto the watch would be great.

I downloaded the ios app to the phone and the watch apk to my mac.

Created an adb connection, in dev mode on the watch enabled adb test mode, but get a 'no devices error'

Davids-MBP:~ user$ adb connect 192.168.1.124:7272
connected to 192.168.1.124:7272
Davids-MBP:~ user$ adb install /Users/me/Documents/watchmaker_410_aw.apk
error: no devices/emulators found
adb: error: connect failed: no devices/emulators found
- waiting for device -

Thanks for anyone who can help.

So will the watch app be available on the mobvoi store anytime soon then, or do we have to sideload it via adb, and then lose it with each factory reset

At this time a guide is not available. Ticwatch is considered a "Tizen" watch by them. Once those are enabled on the WM platform more information will be available for all. According to watchmaker sometime next week. It looks like it will be done via a different process: "Cloud Sync".

We have submitted the standalone watch app to Mobvoi which is currently under review.

This will make it possible for Ticwatch2 users to install without adb.

Gave it another go to install last night and this time it went on fine with adb.

Well done Alex, it is great so far. Importing watches from urls works great, creating a watch is superb and the cloud sync to the phone worked perfectly.

If I could suggest that the cloud sync lasts a little longer before deactivating. Making my own face last night, I sent the watch to the phone, noticed a small tweak, changed in the ios app, then had to turn on cloud sync on the watch again etc. I made about 8 little tweaks but wasn't fast enough for sync to remain active each time.

In the app, could we get a preview of the code output so we don't have to send to phone to see how it looks? For example, I added the code {blp} to show battery percentage, however the app just shows a blue line and not a placeholder. I tweaked the position by a few pixels each time after viewing on the watch.

Other than that, a superb app and something ticwatch will benefit greatly from.

Here's an image of it working, supporting a local event

It showed in the store for a bit and then it was removed. Not sure if it wasnt ready or what. Hopefully it will be fixed and available soon :)
