The Minimal Binary watchface is inspired by the book Snow Crash. One of the ideas in the book is that hackers can directly process information that is presented in a binary format. Because of this, and because I like to explore new technologies, I decided to design a binary watchface design for the Garmin smartwatches. Minimal Binary is the result.</p><p></p><p>The design uses four rows of squares. You start 'counting' binary numbers from the right. On each row, the right-most square represents 1, the one left to that 2, the one left to that represents 4, and the left-most square is 8. When a square is filled, it is active and 'counts'. For example: when the square for 1 and 8 are active, the value for that row is 9. The watchface uses a separate row for each number in the 00:00 format:</p>
0.7: rewrite code (no functional changes)</p><p>0.6: increase square sizes for larger screens (300px +) and square watches (e.g. sq).</p><p>0.5: add visual indicator for pm for 12h settings.</p><p>0.4: add support for 12h and 24h settings.</p><p>0.3: add support for more devices.</p><p>0.2: fixed issue with hour indicators.</p><p>0.1: initial release.
