Hidden tricks:
► Long press cloud marker in wear cloud editor to move bubble into the same cloud as the previously moved bubble (or newly created folder)
► Long press folder bubble in bubble edit screen on watch to quickly get to folder layouts, colors
► Tap top icon in cloud layout configuration screen on watch to go back to previous screen (folder bubble editor or main settings)
