    Ahh... You simply have to have the weather card be the top most card for it to display like that... At least that's the only way I know how to do it.

    Of course, this means you would have to dismiss the steps counter or any other notifications you have and keep the weather one.

    ok here's another question (great thread btw). when you swipe to dismiss a gmail for example, are you just dismissing the notification? i was under the impression (and thought i had read) that you actually delete the message. doesn't seem to be the case. i swipe to dismiss an unwanted email and it still appears in my gmail box...

    maybe this behavior was changed in one of these updates, because i could have sworn ppl were upset about having emails deleted when inadvertently dismissing them from the watch

    EDIT: and another question. is there any way to initiate a hangouts message? sms is easy, "send text to..." but i dont see anyway to send a hangout message

    Hmm... Not really sure, other than wait for it to reappear. Voice commands "weather" & "start weather" are a no go and resyncing apps grin the phone didn't with either.

    EDIT.... Figured it out ... If you update Google Now on your phone, so that the weather card appears again... it will show up on the watch!

    I think you must have already hangout conversation started so you can answer via Smartwatch

    the problem here is that when the conversation card goes away, you lose all ability to message anyone via hangouts, let alone start a new convo w someone else

    You can start a new conversation just by voice, "ok google", "text (whoever)", "hey what's up" , done

    Anyway to change the screen timeout. Sometimes it dims and goes dark before I am done reading texts.

    Besides swiping away all the cards, is there a way to not have the top card "peek" on the watch face? I just want to see the watch face, then swipe to see my cards. Not sure this is even possible.

    I haven't seen an option for this. And honestly, not sure I'd like it. It's an easy way to see that you have pending notifications. Without it, there would really be no indicator.

    Yes to showing pending notifications, just not regular Google Now cards. Just thinking it would be nice to be able to see the whole Analog watch face without a card peeking.

    How do you turn off the screen while charging? When my gear live is plugged in, it only dims the screen. It turns off when it's not charging.

    My G Watch does the same thing... Hopefully this will be addressed in an update. Doesn't seem to be a way to do it yet. The "dim screen" cover screen motion doesn't work to turn screen off when charging, even if "always on" is turned off.

    There is an option in the Wear app's settings to do this BUT ONLY on the dimmed watch face screen.

    Quick question from a non-owner: Android has traditionally not been able to connect to more than one bluetooth device at a time. I always use the bluetooth in my truck for hands-free conversation, will I still be able to use this while also connected to a Wear device or is this still an issue in the Android bluetooth stack?

    Not a problem. I've been able to use my watch while connected to BT in my car, and when connected via BT to my outdoor stereo.
