Dynamic edition: Normal mode


Dynamic edition

The Dynamic edition's Normal mode allows a wearable device to function as intended, but with specific settings applied by Knox Configure.

To date, if a wearable device is configured and its assigned profile is changed, a profile push update is made regardless of the profile's edition (Setup or Dynamic). New rules are now in place to restrict Setup edition profiles from receiving a push update. A Dynamic profile can still push update another Dynamic edition profile, and a Setup edition profile can still push update a Dynamic edition profile. However, a Setup edition profile can no longer update another Setup edition profile, nor can a Dynamic edition profile push update a Setup edition profile.

Displays

The Displays tab allows you to select a custom watch face, set custom booting and shutdown animations when creating a profile. You can also clear previously set animations on this tab.

Read the WKC Animation Guide for instructions on creating animation files. The EDJ file format is used exclusively for wearable device animation and is a unique file format compared to phones and tablet device animation files.
