How to add watch faces on MTK2502 smartwatch

September 26th, 2016


Is it possible to create some watch faces for G5?Or where can I download some watch faces for my G5?We have received such questions after the G5 released.

The answer is Yes.You can download watch faces even create some for your G5.

Thanks to zcj great job.We noticed that there is a way to put watchfaces on G5. If you still have some questions about how to put them on G5?

Here I’m gonna make some tutorial about how to add watch faces via phone.First of all,we have to face up to the limited storage.Unfortunately,we can only install two watch faces on G5. But you can download some on your phone and there you can keep lots of watch faces.Just uninstall the using one and then install the new one.Enjoy it.

Warning:’Do not uninstall the one you are using,it may brick your watch’

A step by step tutorial.

1)Scan the QR code and download the Smartdevice.(there is two version first one for Android,below one for IOS)

2)Download the watch faces vxp files.

3)Extract the vxp files on your phone AND then transfer the files to the appmanager folder.(while you open the Smartdevice the folder is created)


4)Open my application on Smartdevice install the new watch face.

5)Select your new watch face.


If you want to learn more,click the link above.Big thanks to zcj and xda forum.

Big thanks to zafrix8,he set up a website where you can download vxp face.And thanks for his tutorial,which makes creating vxp face easier.

      Hi Ravi, the stock firmware doesn’t support vxp face, but don’t worry, the new firmware is about to release, after update to this firmware you can install vxp face.

    I got the new G8 with FW 0627 (it says it’s latest).
    The FundoWear app has “My Applications” but that disappears right when the watch is connected.
    The Fundo SmartDevice is unable to install anything complaining “Unknown Error”.
    The MTK SmartDevice app fails in the same way.
    What do I do then? Please help!

    I have no. 1 d7. I have HTC one m8 (android 7.1.2) and I cannot connect my smart watch with mediatek smartdevice. It appears in the list of available devices but when I click on it it does nothing

  • […] G8 is a MTK2502 dual mode watch. It supports sim card, you can also use it for your phone’s companion device. […]

      Sorry, you need an Android device to install custom faces. Unfortunately, IPhone doesn’t support installing custom apps. Vxp face is somewhat an APP.

    Hi, my friend, maybe I do not have to answer this question, but I have the final doubt on how to use my smartwatch better. I can KW18 which is very similar to NO.1 G6 and I have the following doubts:

    When I receive notifications from wathsapp they accumulate and I can not read them separately. I use Mediatek SmartDevices to connect to my device.

    Second question, the FundoWear hangs a lot to read the pedometer, heart rate and sleep data. I’d have some other application to do this tracking.

    Sorry for my english, I’m Brazilian and I’m using a translator.

      Hi friend,
      what’s the model of your watch? Do you mean this method don’t work with your watch? Did you download the correct app, MTK smartdevice? If not delete the old one and install smartdevice. Also because the storage of G5,G6 is very small, you can only install the simple digital/analog watch face.
      Hope it helps.

    Hello. I am just trying to install watch faces on my No.1 G6. I download them and they install on the watch, but all the Analog ones never show the hands. NONE work. And I don’t understand the explanation given here to ‘make below 50k’ or ‘change color depth’. I am not a developer and I don’t understand this. I just want the faces to work properly. Can someone help? Why does this happen?

    • Jon

      Feb th, 2017 3:15 PM Reply

      Hi, if the size of the clock background is larger than 50kb, the watch face will not display well.(only black image) You can reduce the color depth to make it work on your watch. Your problem may be too big clock background. Here is a simple analog watch face, you can have a try.

    Hey, thanks for this, but I have a problem. I have an No.1 G6 watch with HTC 10 and Fundo Wear app. For some reason, Mediatek app can’t be installed – error 505.

    So I put watch faces on device root, folder appmanager, but Fundo app don’t see new watch faces, only default one’s.

    What should I do? Thanks!

      Hello zeljko,
      You need to delete the Fundo Wear app and install the smartdevice. There is some compatibility issue between smartdevice and Fundo companion app.

    As per your guideline, I installed watch face into my MTK2502C watch. But when I changed watch face to new installed face. My watch blacked out. Now it is blinking black screen on & off. DO I brick my watch. Please tell me procedure to RESET>

But i want to delete or uninstall some included WF to have more space on my watch, but i can’t found it on fundo, do you know how to that? Thanks

      Hello, G6 is very small storage. I can install two faces,but they all take very little space.
      And how to delete the WF, you need smartdevice and go to my application then uninstall it.
      You can also put WF in the appmanager folder, once you need, simply you just need to uninstall the old one and install the new one.(You need select the stock WF before you uninstall the old)

          Fundo do you mean Fundo smartdevice? If so, you don’t need to remove it just go to my application and then uninstall the old one.
          If not, and yes, you need to uninstall fundo first.

      Hi ! It seems Fundo and Mediatek apps are using the same ressources, so I had to remove Fundo tu use Mediatek. As for the watchfaces visibility, I had to add 240_240 at the end of the XML file of each face. The number mey be different based on your watch, but you should be able to find it out with the other faces in the directory.

    For those having trouble installing the new faces. Download (to your phone) the face from the linked site (note: only those which comprise of 3 files will work). Go into your phones file manager and locate the files you’ve just downloaded. Highlight all 3 and move/extract them to the folder called “appmanager” which is located in the phones root directory.! Then open fundo wear or mediated and select the my applications option. The clock faces should then be there available to install. You can only install 2 at a time and make sure you don’t uninstall the face you’re currently using or you’ll brick the watch!
