TimeText

Layout to show the current time and a label at the top of the screen. If device has a round screen, then the time will be curved along the top edge of the screen, if rectangular - then the text and the time will be straight

This composable supports additional composable views to the left and to the right of the clock: Start Content and End Content. [startCurvedContent], [endCurvedContent] and [textCurvedSeparator] are used for Round screens. [startLinearContent], [endLinearContent] and [textLinearSeparator] are used for Square screens. For proper support of Square and Round screens both Linear and Curved methods should be implemented.

Note that Wear Material UX guidance recommends that time text should not be larger than 90 degrees of the screen edge on round devices and prefers short status messages be shown in start content only using the MaterialTheme.colors.primary color for the status message.
