How To Manually Install Amazfit Watch Faces - Step By Step Guide

author Luis Silva (June 2021)

If you want to know how to manually install any of the watch faces that are available on this website, then you're at the right place.

First of all, you'll need to install a file explorer app. You can check if your native app has access to the required folders, but I strongly recommend the ES File Explorer because you can add folders to your favorites, and that will save you a lot of time.

These steps were tested on Android 10, but they should also work on iOS. If you have any issues, just leave a comment below.

Without further ado, let's start.

#1 First and foremost, if you've never installed a custom watch face before, just head into the Zepp/Mi Fit app, and pick one of the available watch faces. Then just hit "Sync watch face."

#2 After choosing a watch face on the site and hitting "Download," go to the ES File Explorer app, and then navigate into your "Download" folder on your phone's internal memory.

#3 There, you'll find a file called "2c8316200c1df8e63e38462f2b0c2bdb.bin". Long press on it and select "Cut."

#4 Then, click back and head into "Internal Storage", then the "Android" folder, then into the "Data" folder. Once there, find this folder: "com.huami.watch.hmwatchmanager" (or "com.xiaomi.hm.health", if you're in the Mi Fit app). Open it and head into the "files" folder, and then in the "watch_skin_local."

*Are you noticing this folder's name? If you can't find a "Download" shortcut on the favorites menu, just add this folder.

#5 Now all you have to do is find the folder "2c8316200c1df8e63e38462f2b0c2bdb," long-press on it, click "More," and then on "ADD TO FAVORITE." That way, it'll be much easier to find it the next time you wish to try another dial. As you can see in step #2.

#6 Now just open the said folder and tap on "Paste." When asked, tap on "Override."

#7 Now just follow step #1. Head back into the Zepp/Mi Fit app, tap on this watch face, and hit "Sync watch face." Give it a moment, and you'll have the dial that you just downloaded running on your watch.

This may seem a lot of work for getting a single watch face on your watch, but don't worry because after adding that folder to your favorites, you can switch between these two folders on the menu of the ES File Explorer with just a couple of clicks.

That means you'll only have to follow steps #2, #3, #6, and #1 for setting other dials.

Tip: Most likely, the mentioned watch face folder won't be around forever. While I'm planning to keep this site and these instructions up-to-date, if you can't find that folder, you can use any other folder for that matter. Just rename the downloaded .BIN file and give it the name of the new folder. Then cut and paste it into that folder. Then, in the Zepp/Mi Fit app, you have to sync the dial that was in the new folder. Every folder has a preview image of the original dial. Check it out on step #6. It's marked with an asterisk.

Disclaimer: Do this at your own risk. That said, if you don't try to install a dial from other brands/models, you shouldn't have any problem at all. Also, try not to install any .BIN file bigger than 1.95Mb in size. But don't worry, because if the watch face gets "stuck" or if you end up with your watch on a boot-loop cycle, just put it on the charger and then sync another watch face into it.
