One of the perks of having a smartwatch is the flexibility you have with regards to its aesthetics, and in particular, the watch face. And with Android Wear out for a few months now, there’s already an explosion of apps geared towards customization appearing in the Google Play Store. However, if one were to have the ability to create his or her own watch face, the possibilities for watch face customization become pretty much endless.
With this said, XDA Forum Member expressive87 has developed an app for Android Wear called WearFaces, which lets you easily create your own custom watch face. WearFaces makes this possible by letting you design the clock’s dial, hour hand, minute hand, and the watch face’s dimmed state. With only these items defined, you can transfer them onto your device, manually select them from the WearFaces app, and hit “Send to Wear.” After that, you’ll be able to select and apply your custom watch face. Additionally, because of its rather ‘open’ nature, you can also simply download watch faces made by other users and use them yourself.
From rookies to end users, WearFaces will definitely be a useful app for anyone looking for an effortless and convenient way of crafting their own custom watch faces for their Android Wear device. If you can’t wait to give this a try, head over to the WearFaces application thread to get started._________
