android wear 2017 guide watchphone feature
Android Wear doesn’t just extend the notifications from your smartphone to your wrist, but it also doubles as an attractive watch that’s designed as a high-tech alternative to a traditional timepiece. A large part of that is the watch face you have on it, whether you’re keen on rocking an adorable feline or the iconic work of the late Van Gogh. There are a lot of Android Wear watch faces out there, but below are a few of our favorites.

HeyKittyKitty

Cat Face

Why wouldn’t you want to see an adorable kitty every time you glanced at your watch? Smartwatch design company WatchMaster designed this interactive face, which lets you tap on the kitten to view a cute animation, and, well, that’s more or less it. It touts a clean aesthetic, too, and the cat even goes to sleep when your watch goes into ambient mode.

Moods of Norway

Moods Gall 2

Moods of Norway is the endeavor of another fashion design. A Norwegian-based designer created the beautiful watch face app, which touts 36 simple faces that change during set events throughout the year. You can also set the watch faces independent of the events, but sadly, each face only functions as a 24-hour clock.

Muzei

Muz 1

Muzei is a live wallpaper app that also supports Android Wear. The app pulls famous artwork and sets it as your wallpaper every 24 hours, and that extends to your Android Wear smartwatch as well. You can also set it to pull wallpapers from certain sites, or if you prefer, from your own photos.

Ted Baker

Ted Baker Face

This gorgeous watch face represents one from Google’s recent collaborations with several fashion designers. Each watch has a different print and matches Ted Baker’s style, and more detail is revealed as the hour passes. Tapping the face also inverts the patterns, which is pretty neat.

Google Play

Universal ($1)

Space Gall

Universal is another watch face that requires the Facer app. Built by James Viola on the Facer app, it features a rocket on the second hand orbiting planets. It doesn’t offer much else other than that, but it’s pretty nice to look at.

Mysterious Forest

Tree Gall

Mysterious Forest, another watch face courtesy of the WatchMaster group, has an apt name that suits the face’s mysterious theme. Every time you tap the watch, a fox, deer, or rabbit will pop up. Apart from that, however, it showcases a fairly minimal design with unique, painted-esque artwork.

Google Play

Lunar ($1)

Lunar Gall

Lunar is a watch face made by Reddit user SKielbasa. There are a lot more, all which require the Facer app. The app houses a notable selection of community-created watch faces that you can browse through, or you can even take a shot at making your own. SKielbasa says the hour hand is a cutout in the disk, which reveals the hour number as time passes. You can view the rest of the watch faces and grab this particular one here.

Space and Time Watch Face

Space Clock II

Space and Time is a pretty straightforward watch face that has a rocket ship rotating around a planet, similar to the Universal design on Facer. It provides the date and time, while presenting you with 12 and 24-hour options. Apart from that, it’s just a really nice-looking watch face.

Google Play

Pac-Man Watch Face ($0.99)

Pac II

Because why not? There are a host of watch faces featuring various games, and this one looks good. It doesn’t offer much in terms of functionality, but Pac-Man does race around the watch — eating ghosts and fruit — as a replacement for the second hand.

Google Play

Pujie Black ($1.79)

Black Gall

Pujie Black is a customizable watch making app that also conveniently offers interactive buttons on the face for quickly accessing things such as Google Fit, the weather, and your agenda. You can customize it further, too, and change details such as how long the minute and hour hands should be, or their respective colors. You can browse through other designs on the Google+ community and grab presets to use.
