Add Animation

Put your unique spin on a watch face design by adding animation.

PNG sequences

Restrictions: GWD can use PNG images only to create GWD animation sequences. By default, animations run at 15 fps.

  1. Use a separate design program to create a sequence of PNG images to use for animation.
