Pebble TaskWatch for Pebble SmartWatch is a set of Pebble SDK 2 watchfaces customizable through Tasker and with full button support.

This is a do-it-yourself app for fine-tuning your watchfaces through Tasker, so a good knowledge of Tasker and some spare time are recommended :-)

You can associate any Tasker task with:
- Top Button Click/Double Click/Long Click
- Middle Button Click/Double Click/Long Click
- Bottom Button Click/Double Click/Long Click

You can insert in the watchfaces up to 9 custom text layers updatable from Tasker.
The layers 1-7 can contain date/time/battery expressions and can be up to 25 characters long, while the 8th/9th can be up to 100 characters long.

You can display up to 5 icons chosen from a list in the formats 16x16 or 32x32. The icons can be updated from Tasker.

Currently the supported watchfaces are:

- Classic Analog + No Date/Pebble variants
- Simplicity
- Text Watch

Launcher Watch Face:
If you launch another watch app on Pebble, when you close it Pebble will open the current watchface, and not Pebble TaskWatch, since it is a watchapp and not a watchface. The Launcher is an optional "fake" watchface, that when opened will launch Pebble TaskWatch, or one of the third party watch apps listed above.

Outstanding app Allows me to make best use of my Pebble app slot! Some improvements it could use: * More options for updating the text layers, like updating color, size/position, etc. * Not sure whether the input field for text respects the format for tasker arrays, eg %arr(1) for the first element. * Only vibrate on button press if a task is assigned to that single/double/long press

Not compatible with lollipop. Declares same permission as Tasker so will not install on Android 5.0. I'm writing here since the dev hasn't answered my email. So.. 1. I cannot update text and icon on the same action? I get the one or the other.. 2 . if I flick between showing a couple of icons, hiding them and showing them again, the same 2 icons will blow up to 32x32 every second time?? 3.If variable names exceed maximum text limit, you still get a nag saying you have to much text. "truncated".

Great - nearly perfect This is a great app the makes the watch the smartwatch it was meant to be. I use this with Catapult to open other pebble apps and Tasker to allow me even more options for tasks - TaskWatch gives you 9 but with Tasker and Pebble Tasker you can take that up to 27! The watchface is great too as it means you don't have to keep going back into the watch app, however I've found it to be a bit buggy and laggy compared to using the app direct; maybe it's just me but if the watchface could be tweaked and improved to provide as slick a process as using the watchapp then this would be a 5 star review. That last comment puts a negative spin on this, but I really do love this app - it's completely changed the way I use my pebble for the better. It's just 95% of the way to perfect!
