Mural Watchface Brings 500px to Android Wear

Mural Watchface Brings 500px to Android Wear

On a traditional watch, you can’t really do too much to change its appearance once you’ve selected your timepiece and purchased it. Undoubtedly, one of the best features found on Android Wear devices is the ability to change your watchface to suit your mood. What if you took this one step further and had an application to select from some of the most stylish wallpapers available on the Web? Well, when trying to come up with a solution, XDA Senior Member alucine came up with Mural Watchface for Android Wear.

Mural Watchface is an Android Wear app that brings some beautiful photos from the 500px service straight to your Android Wear watchface. The images are presented alongside the weather, date, day, and charge levels for your phone and smartwatch. The app works with both round and square Android Wear devices, so this means that currently the Moto 360, LG G Watch, LG G Watch R, and Samsung Gear Live are compatible. That said, we wouldn’t have any trouble imaginging that future Wear devices will also fit the bill.

If you’d like to give your Android Wear device a bit of 500px spice, head over to the Mural Watchface application thread and give Mural Watchface a shot!
