Hi,

I have a very common problem with the Watch GT which is extremely annoying.

Essentially every time I fold my arms, I accidentally trigger the watch face change action (when you press and hold the screen), because my forearm rests on the watch.

Could we somehow add a lock on the watch face to disable this feature if preferred? The watch face can always be changed via Settings -> Display anyways.

Thanks

Thanks Ian, the Trello board is a great idea! I am unable to vote though...


You should be able to now, I have updated the permissions.

I have also enabled comments by trello users and will see how that goes.

It might not be what you need but I can access waiting notifications when I press the top button whilst locked.

Ability to disable the quick link to the watch face selector would be useful, I have added it to a independent trello board (https://trello.com/c/uom3Z7s5/1-disable-watchface-seclector-quick-link) i'm started to help coordinate feedback and gauge support for feature requests.

If you press and hold the bottom button you will lock the screen, to unlock just press and hold the same button again.


Thanks. I am aware of that, but that means anytime I want to check any info or view notifications I have to unlock the watch again, which is very tedious. A simpler lock (or disabling) for the face changing action would be much better.
