A Lesson by Daniele Bonaldo
Some smartwatches display have special requirements, such as low-bit ambient mode. In this case, the screen supports fewer bits for each color when in ambient mode. When this happens you should disable anti-aliasing and bitmap filtering when the device switches to ambient mode. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to support this mode in your watch face.
You’ll also learn how to enable this in the Wear developer options panel as well as how to enable this panel on your Android Wear Device.
