No, You can't. GWD is a designer tool, Code is taken care off in backend, You won't get access to modify.

But you can develop Watchfaces from the scratch using C/C++ or C# or HTML/JS/CSS code from Tizen Studio IDE (Visual Studio in case of .NET).

Yes, for few simple tweaks you have to learn to make it all from scratch. That is not very tempting.
But imagine the advantage you can get by doing so. All the things that GWD is not capable of (and maybe still wont be capable by time you master tizen). 
Like unlimited customizable design, s-health data along weather info and so on.
In the store is maybe less than 1% of watchfaces made in tizen studio, so you still have good chance and room to stand out.

That's the kind of reply I like to hear. Its been a crash course since the beginning anyway and I hate change. I waded into the TizenStudio sea last year for a bit but didn't have the time so it ended abruptly. A few simple tweaks you say? Sounds like more midnight oil will be needed. Isnt there a middle road somewhere? GWD being so easy a caveman could do it and learning Code sounds like learning Swahili.

Anyone know if I can input some code into a GWD designed watch face?


Being new to the GWD, I pretty early came across its limitations. I for one would love for GWD to be more open. The user friendliness is great, combine that with the ability to go in and do your own coding for more advanced design features would make this tool really powerful! Either that or start including more features & flexibility for designers.

I do love this tool and how easy it is to use, but as a designer I feel limited currently.
