Design a Pebble watch-face on your phone, and publish it instantly to your watch!

You will need a Pebble Watch to get the most out of this app!

If you encounter problems installing the latest Canvas watchface to your Pebble, please see the FAQ.


With Canvas, you can:-
– Design watch-faces for your Pebble, on your Android phone
– Control the size, position, format, font, colour and alignment of every item. Drag to move and resize
– Animate anything on your watch-face, and vibration when content changes
– Add images
– Include world-time from any timezone
– Add countdown timers, to a time controlled on your phone
– Switch watch-faces from your phone, only requiring one precious slot on your Pebble

Your watch-faces can use any time format that you wish, including the popular ‘text watch’ format.

You can also include dynamic content which will update continually from your phone:
– Your next calendar appointments (on supported devices ICS+)
– Missed call, Unread SMS counters
– Unread Gmail counters for any labels
– Phone battery percentage
– Phone sensor status (temperature, humidity, pressure on supported devices e.g. Galaxy S4)
– Weather
– Any content from Tasker
– And anything else via plugins – example:

And share any watchface that you design with other Canvas users! Use the ‘Share’ function on the Edit screen. A shared .pcs file can be loaded back into Canvas

Instructions: please see

Developers: see for information on creating content plugins for Canvas

– Pebble does not yet support persistent storage. This means that every time you select the ‘Pebble Canvas’ watch-face on your Pebble, it must communicate with your phone before it can display anything. After this, it will continue to display all non-dynamic content even if connection to your phone is lost.

– Please submit any bug reports if you do encounter an issue. You may also submit diagnostics from the ‘About’ menu to help diagnose any problems
– Please email me with any problems/issues/suggestions. This is a lot easier than responding via the Google Play comments system
