Functions in GWS missing - will they come in future?

Hi @all

Meanwhile I am using GWS 2.0.0Beta but still miss variables and functions for making my watchfaces working worldwide.

Actual missing:
For Script-Window:
Data: GPSLong, GPSLat
SIN(), COS()

My watchface with sunset/sunrise works exact - but only at 47°N, because there is no option to use user-coordinates unfortunately.
Instead of SIN, actual I have to use sheets with sin()-values…
Will there be a chance to get those wishful, but missing variables and functions in a future update of GWS?

Kind regards

Uh, I forgot - On Watch/Smartphone used Timezone as Data-Variable is missing also.

Since you can have multiple clocks each with a different time zone I don’t think this is possible.

I have suggested these in the past and the response for GPS Data is basically this is counter productive of the intent of Galaxy Watch Designer to be a simple to use designer tool. They should use Tizen Studio instead.

For the SIN and COS I was told it is being considered internally but is not on any timeline.

Hi Ron,

thanks for your information.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to use any timezone as variable in scripts.

So I am not able to calculate the sun movement with its exact high noon calculated by the double-SIN-Moebius-curve at real south position and corrected in Summer/Winter-Time by MEZ time.
For example, today exact high noon is 01:18PM at my latitude.
To handle this problem, I add one hour between April and October manually, but this is not really correct nor it will work worldwide. Not all countries are using Summer/Wintertime.

Kind regards

Hi Ron,

thanks for this information.

I can’t really understand, why adding variables for Latitude, longitude and timezone could make developing watchfaces with GWS more difficult.

I have also tried to use Water-Intake as option for users to manually set their longitude therewith (47 Cups of water = 47°N).
But this failed, since this variable is set to Zero each day at 12:00AM and there is no way to select decimal numbers nor choose numbers < 0.

SIN and COS I can replace by sheets, but the other missing functions makes it impossible to make my Watch Face working everywhere.

To learn Tizen Studio just for developing a astronomic correct working Watchface seems to much expenditure to me.
So it seems, my Watchface never will published in market unfortunately.

kind regards

P.S. Without adding a variable with the number of days since a fixed date (as in DOS 01.01.1970), it is also impossible to me, to build my planed Tellurium-Watchface what shows positions of the planets in our Solar System.
