Among the many great things about Android Wear, the ability to customize the watch face stands out. Though its only a minor part of its entire assortment of features, it allows you to make it appear they way you want, adding a uniqueness that matches your preferences and as a result making it easily distinguishable from anyone else's. The Play Store offers an array of awesome selections, but here are some of the few Android Wear watch faces that truly stand out.


One of the initial watch face creating apps that is widely considered very powerful is Facer. If you are looking to create your very own watch face for your Android Wear then Facer is one of the best options out there. The app isn't complicated to use or learn, and offers some really really breathtaking designs that leave most of the other watch faces in the dust. Its an attractive but functional watch face, and totally worth it.

WatchMaker Premium

WatchMaker Premium happens to be one of Facer's biggest rivals and its also actually powerful. Similar to Facer, this app can be used to create watch face that are truly yours and comes with a metric list of features. Some of these include support for animated gifs, parallax effects, along with accessibility to weather, time, calendar, compass, step counter, animations, heart rate, Tasker and so much more. This app gives you a world of possibilities, no matter what you need or how want your Android Wear device to look.

Google Fit

If you are into fitness and want an application specially designed for that, then Google Fit is one of the most commonly used app by Android Wear users. Its most recent update brought with it a watch face feature. With a rather straightforward watch face, it displays the time and number of steps you've made in a day. This basically transforms your Wear watch into a Fitbit which is essentially a quality that most folks look for in their Android Wear devices anyway. Whats more, the Google Fit is available for free and comes pre-installed on most smartwatches.

Battery Watch Face

Battery Watch Face is a basic yet functional watch face. It displays the date, time and the percentage of your battery on the watch face, which is essentially what most people look for. The one unique bit about this app is that it also requires Wear Battery Stats to add even more functionality. Fortunately once you purchase the watch face which costs $0.99, you get it complete with the app, which is actually nice.


500px is basically a website where you can browse through beautiful images captured by people from around the world. From here you can grab some of the most stunning photos and even set them as backgrounds on your device. Having the 500px app on your device lets you take advantage of these great photos and use as many you want as backgrounds for your Android Wear gadget. The watch face is pretty standard but has a lot to offer in terms of customization.

InstaWeather for Android Wear

InstaWeather for Android Wear is weather-focused Android Wear watch face. It brings to the table a number of options that deliver weather forecasts as well as the present conditions. Also doubling up as a weather application, it offers you access to a 24-hour forecast, allows you to check out radards, with the latest update even adding a watch face with a Google Fit weather theme. It might take a little while to set it up on your Wear device but its a lot of fun once it starts running.

Muzei Live Wallpaper

Muzei Live Wallpaper is an awesome live wallpaper app that brings timeless pieces of art right onto your Wear device's home screen as well as a few customization features. Back last year an update was introduced to Muzei which also featured an Android Wear watch face with all the app's basic functionalities. For lovers of classic art, this app is definitely worth a shot as it fills your home screen with an endless carousel of artwork. Which is your favorite Android Wear watch face?
