v9.97 Dual peek card
Please share:


Version 9.97 is slow roll-out. To get the update immediately see sidebar on how to join the beta test

What’s new

  • Dual peek card option (see below)
  • API 30 compliance
  • Bug fixes and improvements (see details below)

Dual peek card option

If you are using the Notification Icons Plugin, you can now have an additional peek card source besides notifications from your phone e.g.:

  • Now Playing media,
  • Next Calendar,
  • Weather,
  • Preview of Wear OS notification

or any other long text complication.

Notifications from the Notification Icons Plugin no longer need to be assigned as complication, they will come directly from the plugin to the peek card if the option “Dual peek card” option is enabled either for the peek card or for the notification bubbles:

Long press either the peek card or one of the notification bubbles to see the new option.

Two peek cards

The peek card last updated will appear, but you can manually hide and show the card to toggle between the two cards if both cards have information (as shown in the animation above).

Filters for blank notifications (such as “No upcoming event” or “No tracks” or “No notifications”) are now configured by default, and of course you can add your own, separated by a semi-colon (;).

You can control the appearance of the two cards independently, just long press the card you want to change:

  • Separate settings: card background color, transparency, size
  • Shared settings: everything else (title font, hide on read, color match, ambient visibility, no card filter)

For more information on the option “No card if text contains” please see Peek card watch face complication

Assign watch face complication to card

You can still assign the complication from Settings → Add complication → Long text (Peek card)

For more information please see Peek card watch face complication

Notification Preview complication

If you assign the Notification Preview to the peek card, you might want to turn off native Wear OS notifications from the Wear OS app on your phone, otherwise you will get double notifications:

You will still see local, watch-only notifications coming from the Notification Preview.

Please note, Samsung (or Google?) removed the Notification Preview complication from the Galaxy Watch 4 in the November, 2021 update. We don’t know if this was intentional or a bug. The more of us report the issue to Samsung the better our chance to get this feature back.
