Tizen 22.214.171.124 displays active app icon (like music player) at bottom of the screen. It’s a handy reminder, but I think there should be a an option to hide the icons as it can be a bit distracting for developing and testing watch face.
Did you look in your Watch settings - Watch faces - Ongoing Icons Off I think that is it. I don’t see them.
That’s it! It has been driving me nuts, thanks Ron!
