# Gyro effects

Gyro effects let you adjust the dimensions, inner pivot positions, rotation, and opacity of objects in your watch face.

Click GYRO in the properties window to tweak the X and Y rotation dimensions of independent objects to create 3D effects for your watch face. There are two sections for applying gyro effects: X-AXIS and Y-AXIS. These sections let you control the properties when the watch rotates along the X and Y axes, respectively.

## The watch gyroscope

Gyro effects apply as the watch moves within the -90º to 90º range along the X and Y axes. The watch is considered level when it is at 0º.

You can also design watch faces that change appearance when the watch moves clockwise or counter-clockwise.

When wearing your watch on your left wrist, if your watch rotates 90º upwards (counter-clockwise) along the X axis, this displays as -90º. When the watch rotates 90º downwards (clockwise) along the X axis, this displays as 90º.

When wearing your watch on your left wrist, if your watch rotates 90º to the left along the Y axis, this displays as -90º. When the watch rotates 90º to the right along the Y axis, this displays as 90º.

## Range

Set range values that are used to calculate how much the elements rotate. For example, if you enter values of -90 and +90, to create a pivot range of -90º to 90º, then `inner_pivot_x` is 80 pixels to the right of the base value when the watch rotates 80º.

Additional properties for gyro mode include the following:

• Scale: enlarge and shrink an object in relation to a point at its center. The point remains in the same position while the object gets bigger or smaller.
• Displacement: change the position of an object using a point at its center. The value of the Position input field is based on the center of the object.
• Rotate: Rotate an object based on a point at its center. Rotations don't change the position of the object.
