Gradient colours on copy/numbers

Hi team, me again.

Anyone know hownid go about adding a gradient of colours to say dates or times? I have seen this on a few faces on various platforms and wonder how its done, example below:


Would i need to use bitmap fonts for top half and bottom half both woth a fade geadient and overlay them and have each a differnt colour from the styles pallet? Just an idea…



two ways
Best Blog is Use Masks to Get Creative with Watch Faces It uses a masked gradient image.

See How to Customize and Enhance Text Elements on a Watch Face Tags and Bitmap and substitute the numbers for gradient bitmaps.

Thanks Ron, I’ll give them a go, can you use numbers/time/dates as masks or do they need to be images do you know? Not to worry if you don’t know I’ll experiment.

How to is in the blogs,

No, you would need your gradient image used as a mask over your text like this:

How to set image as a mask is in step 3 of the first tutorial Ron mentioned.


Lovely thanks Peter will give it a go amd report back if any issues
