One of the first things many of us will want to do when we get an Android Wear device is customize it a little bit. There will be plenty of apps come along for the new breed of smartwatch, and possibly we'll see replacement user interfaces just like we do on our smartphones, but I'm talking about something more basic — changing the default watch face.
Changing your watch face is easy to do, and really changes the look of the device on your wrist. You change them much the same way you would change the wallpaper on your Android phone or tablet, with just a few swipes and taps to make it all happen. Have a peek and see how it's done.
Any custom watch faces that may come about aside, your Android Wear watch comes with a set of faces to choose from pre-installed. From what we've seen so far, both the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live have the same faces installed, and chances are there is something there that suits your taste and your needs. From the abstract to the more traditional, with trays for app notifications or date indicators, everything is covered.
We're not sure if developers will be able to design and distribute their own watch faces just yet. (It's probably just a matter of time.) The good news is that even if they can't (and never say never when talking Android) we've got a good selection that's easy to change up so you can make your Android Wear watch feel more like your own.
