Cronosurf Wave

supports Android Wear

watches and runs fully interactive! Except the compass, all functions of the main app are implemented. However, it has been tested only on one Wear device, the Huawei Watch. It is therefore to be regarded as a preview and might not show full technical maturity on all situations/devices.


For touch interactivity, Android 6.+ on the watch is required

There is also a dedicated "Android Smartwatch Mode" for standalone Android Smartwatches (like the Finow X5) that optimizes the app for the watch screen. Note that Cronosurf runs as a regular app on these devices (not as a watchface).

- Run at startup: Used for reactivating a pending AL or CD.

- Prevent device from sleeping: As long as an alarm is being played, such the user can see the watch and stop the alarm.


Since Android 5.0 (Lollipop), the operating system does not allow alarm events that occur in

less than 5 seconds

. Cronosurf will therefore limit the minimum countdown timer setting automatically to 5 seconds if running on such devices.
