The Watch Face: Scooter rocks a circular face that was -according to the creator- designed to look good on square faces. The theme of the watch face is all automobile, or rather, scooter related. A blue riderless scooter rides in a wide circle near the edges of the face to tick off seconds. In the upper middle of the screen is a gauge which looks like a fuel gauge from a car, and contains the time and date. Below and to the right is an old fashioned gas pump, bright red, with your current battery displayed on it's right.

It works very well without going overboard. The gauge that dominates the middle of the screen displays the time to left, and the date to the right.
