    Anyone else regularly check pulses/respiratory rates and get annoyed that the screen won't stay on for 30 seconds?! It seems so odd that pressing the crown turns the screen on for seventeen seconds :rolleyes:. Hopefully in the future there will be a setting to keep the screen on longer

    The screen timeout should be configurable. Perhaps a workable solution would be to add the timer complication to a watch face and then use it to time. This way you don't have to keep a constant eye on the face to know when the time expired.

    I just tried this and the problem appears to be that the shortest duration for a timer is 60 seconds.
