    Hi,
    My watch has 3 physical buttons, but WearOS settings only allows to map apps to 2 of these buttons.
    Can Autowear be used to remap all the buttons and increase the possibilities ? Is it possible to launch an app or show a screen based on a "single press", "double press" or "long press" of the physical buttons ?
    Thanks !

    Can you map those buttons to apps? If so you could map those to the AutoWear apps :)

    Hi Joao,
    My watch only allows me to map an app to a '' single press'' on these buttons. So yes, I can map an autowear app, but I can have only 2 shortcuts .
    I just wanted to know if autowear was able to detect other actions on these buttons such as double tap or long press, to assign more apps/actions.
    Thanks

    Not directly, but if you create a profile for those in Tasker you can probably detect multiple opens in a row and act when you detect those :)

    I'm a bit late to the game here but bubble cloud launcher can do this. The downside is that you have to use one of their watchfaces to enable this feature.
