    Has anyone figured out how you change the Font Color in Nightstand Mode? I tried everything and there is no option I can find to change it from the default green. Pictures show it in different colors so I am thinking this can be done unless Apple changed it at some point.

    I would be interested in know this as well. I thought I had seen other pictures with different colors too.

    I believe colors red, blue, and green are considered brain and eye friendly at night. AKA, you can look at a green clock and not have it turn your brain completely on. Not sure if Apple has given us the ability to change the colors though.

    I'm just guessing tho....

    Red: yes, green: maybe, blue: definitely not. Blue LEDs only recently became popular because it was the most difficult LED color to manufacture. To me, blue LEDs are so bright in a dark room that I use gaffer's tape to cover them on all of my electronics.

    Considering the display only comes on when you touch the watch in nightstand mode does it matter what color the clock is?

    The higher the frequency the more it effects melatonin production. Red is the lowest frequency we can see and has the least effect on sleep. Blue on the other hand is getting a little high in frequency (violet/purple is the highest).

    I think you mean wavelength.

    Yes, but generally when people discuss the color of light, they refer to the wavelength, not its frequency.

    Im assuming by your user name you are in the medical industry and that is likely true. However in the audio/video industry (which is more relative to this post) frequency is used far more often than wavelength. For instance how often is a speaker's frequency response listed as wavelength response?;)

    Never, since sound and light are measured quite differently. But yes, when we discuss the energy of x-rays, gamma rays, UV, etc., it's by wavelength.

    Has anyone ever asked you what wavelength a FM/AM station was on?:D Or is that the 2.4GHz or 5GHz wavelength WiFi band?:eek: Frequency is used by FAR more than 1% and is probably used 99% of the time in my 2 examples of electromagnetic radiation.;)

    Light IS electromagnetic radiation. Radio is just at a lower frequency than we can see. Also x-rays, gamma rays and UV (that you quoted) is not visible light either. They are electromagnetic radiation at higher frequency than we can see. Look at my pic in post #10.

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?

    Energy is Plancks Constant times Speed of light over wavelength. Everything is fine ;-)

    REM

    Or f = c/lambda

    Yes I know that visible light is EMR and I know that the term 'light' is used when referring to all wavelengths in certain contexts. However, when talking about visible light and the bits on either side it's standard to talk in terms of wavelength rather than frequency. Routers and radio stations are a pretty rubbish guide if you're looking for the vocab to describe a colour.
