SmartWatch 2 GoldenEye 64 mod_2Back when First Person Shooters were simpler and leaner affairs, GoldenEye 64 reigned supreme on the Nintendo 64. The iconic pause menu in the game was a watch and one enterprising modder has used these assets to make a fully functioning watch on the Sony SmartWatch 2.

He managed to do this using an app called Custom Watch for SmartWatch (£1.49 on the Play Store) and three PNG files. The app is used to create a “Custom Analog Clock” from within the SmartWatch 2 settings. You then need to use the three images, one for the background, the second for the hour hand and the third for the minute hand.

To save power it’s worth enabling “Activate Low Power Mode”, “Monochrome Mode” and the “Faster Screen On” from within the “Battery Settings”, this will dim the screen to grey scale to save power. The only limitation is that this mod cannot technically replace the stock clock, which means whenever you press the power key the stock clock will pop up. Apart from that, it’s a nice mod and if you’re eager to try it out click here.

    When digital watches came in back in the 70’s everyone got one and within a couple of years they were all cast aside. either you had to put glasses on to read the display or people got fed up jabbing buttons to bring up information. Don’t see any difference with smart watches. Why would anyone want a tiny screen and piddle about pressing little buttons? Too much hassle. Just a fad that will fade

  • Robert Forslund

    Too bad I only have the SW1… =/

  • elpollillo

    Yes, in fact you only need is it to be international enabled; go to your bank, and request they enable your card for international use.. ;-)

    You don’t think the Galaxy Gear did well? With the way, and the pace that technology is moving now days I don’t think that wearable tech, like smartwatches, will fade.
