How To Install Custom Watch Faces On Your Android Wear Smartwatch

Like I’ve already said a hundred times before, or perhaps more than that,  that Android is without a doubt the most customizable operating system for smartphones. There’s possibly an endless list of things you could do with your Android operated device. The same goes for Android Wear, which in simple words is Android for smartwatches. Much like Android, Android Wear is customizable to a great extent and there possibly are many tweaks you can pefrom on it. Today, we are going to show you how to change the watch face on your Android Wear smartwatch. Just follow these simple steps and you will be done in no time:

Step 1

The first step to do would be to download an app that makes choosing your own watch face possible and the app we are talking about here is named Facer. The app is available on the Google Play Store for $1 but if you want to save on that money, you can download .apk file for Facer for free. Install the app on your Android smartphone.

Step 2

Click on the app and you will be greeted with a screen that asks you to choose the watch for which you want to design or download already designed watchfaces. The options include the Moto 360, LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. The LG G Watch R has not been added for some unknown reasons.

Step 3

After you select the smartwatch of your choice, you will the be guided through the process of designing your own watch face with your desired image, the choice for an analog or digital watch, choosing the font and much more. You can create your own watch face and save it.

If you’re too lazy to design your own smartwatch or just want to choose from the already designed watch faces, just click on the menu button on the top left corner of the screen and then click on the “Featured Watchfaces” option. This will take you to a market sort of menu where you can choose the watchface you like and download it. Download the watch face by clicking on the three dots on the left bottom corner of each watchface and you will be asked for the option to download it via your browser or Facer, a choice that hardly matters.

Step 4

After installing the watchface on your Android device, all we have to do is apply the watchface on your Android Wear based smartwatch. In order to do this, just click on the “watch with the arrow on its left” symbol in the app on your phone.

You will also have to choose the Facer watch face as the default on your smartwatch, for which you’ll be reminded by Facer if you haven’t done this already. Once you do this, give the devices a couple of seconds to sync and there you go, the watch face you chose and downloaded on the Facer app on your smartphone/tablet has been applied to your Android Wear based smartwatch.
