There are new Android Wear watch faces being added, or updated in the Google Play Store on a daily basis. Trying to keep up with all of the new additions is, at best, a daunting task. So we've grabbed up 5 awesome watch faces for you to check out. Whether you've been looking for something relatively simple, or you want to be able to see how many steps you've taken each day, there is a face here for you.
Let's see what watch faces are in this week's roundup.
It's a breeze to talk to your friends all over the world with just the tap on your screen. The bigger problem becomes trying to figure out what time it is in a different country. Nobody wants to be the jerk sending a text message at 3:00 AM. That's World Timer Watch Face has you covered with access to 24 different time zones at a glance. Best of all, it's available for just $0.99 on the Google Play Store.
You have access to a decent number of settings, but you'll need to pull your smartphone out of your pocket when you do. It's here that you can select your reference city for time zone, choose which cities and timezones are displayed, adjust color options, and choose what is displayed on your watch face. The World Timer Watch Face is analog, but in a 24 hour format that can be a bit confusing when you first take a look at it. Once you get used to how everything is setup the ability to see what time it is across the world can come in quite handy.
Plenty of watch faces will allow you to sync to Google Fit so that you can easily see how active you have been, by glancing at your smartwatch. The question you should be asking, is how many of them give you that info while also providing you with an adorable animated cat? Fit Cat does exactly that. It also works as a game which lets you compete against friends for the highest step count.
This is a really simple — and adorable, watch face. The middle of your screen is taken up by a pudgy orange cat. This guy is animated and you might catch him sleeping or batting around a ball of yarn. Your battery percentage will appear on the left, and the day of the month is on the right. Above the cat you'll see the time in a digital format, with your current step count displayed underneath. Adorable, informational, and available for just $0.99, it's definitely worth taking a look.
If you're hoping for something that is both gorgeous and informative then the Mysterious Forest watch face might catch your eye. It's a glimpse into a watercolor forest that has successfully blended technology and art. The only information that is displayed is the time, but you will see the occasional animated animal pop their head out of the bushes.
You've got a few options and they are all available right on your smartwatch. You can adjust the size of the animated fireflies, and leafs in the watch face — although you will see that doing so quickly kills the battery. You can also opt between a 12 and 24 hour display, and choose what information shows up in ambient mode. This beautiful watch face is available now for free on the Google Play Store.
If you're a fan of having an extremely simple watch face, then the Timr Watch Face might be the one for you. It doesn't display a ton of information for you to look at, but it does have a beautiful and minimalist design to it that uses Materal Design. You'll only find one option, which isn't surprisingly considering the simple design.
The screen is separated into two very distinct parts. On the bottom an animation that ticks off the seconds on a ruler is running, against a bright colored background. The top of the watch face has the date, with the time in bold underneath it at the center of the watch face. When it comes to options you have access to eleven colors for the background of the ruler animation, and that's it. You can grab this one on the Play Store for free.
Spring hasn't quite gotten here in the US yet, but it's getting closer by the day. If you need a dash of color to help get you through a blustery winter, then the Fiore Watch Face by Iris should catch your eye. This watch face features bouquets of flowers that surround the info you want at a glance. If you've been feeling gloomy than a dash of color may be just what you need.
There are seven different sets of flowers that are displayed, and by default you'll get a different one each day of the week. In the middle of the screen you'll see the time displayed in the middle of the screen, with the date just above it. You do have access to several options with this watch face. Adjusting the time format, choosing when the backgrounds change, and tweaking what is displayed in ambient mode. You can grab the Fiore Watch Face by Iris for free on the Google Play Store.
