    Hi,
    I own an A28 Oukitel which has the MTK2502A chip. I have successfully followed your digital watch tutorial and it worked fine thanks 🙂 however the analog one seems to be a little problematic. No matter what I try, the hands dont show. I have tried minimizing the bg image to around 2kb and also made some simple hands but still the same. Do you have any idea about this?
    Thanks alot

      Hello Anon, first, if there is any analog watchface that works well on your watch? Second, did you try to change the hands? Download some watchfaces from http://www.watchfaceup.com , if other watchfaces work well, it is the problem of your project, how to distinguish the bugged one from the five images? You can create four transparent images with one hands.(your project) Then compile it to a watchface, step by step, you’ll find which one is going wrong.
