If you already have an android wear watch, this is SUPER easy to do yourself with Watchmaker. It's a fully-fledged watch face creator with full scripting support via LUA.
While there aren't a ton of apps (beyond 99c watch faces) for Wear yet, there are some really interesting ones to mess around with. Today I built a custom watch face with active buttons that integrates with Tasker, shows me a ton of info, and makes my watch quicker to use. (WatchMaker, if anyone's curious.)
I'm glad the iWatch is coming out because it'll bring greater attention to the watch as a peripheral and probably a bit more polish to the watch experience generally. Android will always be more flexible and less locked-down, so we can copy and modify the best practices that emerge.
I used Watchmaker to make the face. Pretty simple (but lets you get decently complex with Lua scripting and stuff) layer based watchface editor. I've made a few watchfaces with it lol, it's pretty easy and fun to use. No need to write a full Java/Kotlin app if it's got the feature set you want.
The faction icons I took from EDassets, modified (changed to white so they can be tinted dynamically), and added the glow around them. The other icons (weather, moon etc) are built in to Watchmaker.
I think you just have to install watch maker, then the watch face. That's what I did for my Urbane. Watch maker says it works for Galaxy watches
This is probably the closes you're going to find
You'll have to get Watchmaker I believe to apply it...
This is the one I have been using for a couple of months. You can use Watchmaker to change the name to yours.
Buy, yes BUY this awesome app Watchmaker
Then on your phone's web browser (Much easier right from the phone) go to this web page: Face Repo
Then from the phone web browser just click the little download button on the lower right hand corner of the watch face you like and it should ask you which app to open it in, choose Watchmaker and then in that same app, send to phone.
I hope this makes sense.
It works on my Moto360 V1. I'm using Watchmaker and it comes through almost perfectly. I only had to move the date down a little bit and now it's good to go!
Free to download , just need the Watchmaker app for your wearos (or galaxy watch, probably) device and it can be imported
The LGWR is fully up-to-date with all the latest functions of Android Wear
the possibility of having hotspots on your watchface is part of Google's watchface API - every watch running the latest AW update has this
however, you won't get the preinstalled watchfaces you saw on the moto or any other smartwatch as those are added by the OEM
I recommend you get Watchmaker ([link]) which allows you to create your own watchfaces or use the countless provided by the community with custom hotspots
finally, battery: the LGWR / Urbane is hart do beat in that department
I'm quite a light user, but I get ~40 hours out of a single charge whith alway on, so 1 day should never be a problem
> Would love it if you could have 1 main watchface set, and a different for ambient.
If you're willing to take the time to do it, Watchmaker can do this. You can define visibility conditions (dim/ambient vs. bright) for each element individually.
Ok, it's confusing because the link on the play store for the "Watchmaker" app goes to the paid version, but there is a free version of the app here.
*Edit: The app will not allow me to install the PipBoy face without purchasing the paid "Watchmaker" app for $4.
I use Watchmaker to make my own. I have all the important info on there and a picture of my son.
Otherwise the G Watch R's stock Red is pretty cool. I've only had my watch for a few days so I haven't had much time to look around.
I got the 42mm a week ago.
I could probably get 1.5 to 2 days before recharge but I top the charge up every morning when I wake up, usually takes about 60mins to get back to full charge from 50%
My usage pattern:-
I'm happy with the watch!
I think you might get through the day, hard to say, guess it depends how thirsty your usage pattern is.
42mm is better looking IMHO, 46mm is too big.
This could very easily be done in Watchmaker. You shouldn't have many issues if you have some familiarity with coding. It uses LUA for more complex stuff, but this would just be the current time with the different offsets.
I think it works well, and Watchmaker is a killer app. I really like the versatility of AW, that it is a jack-of-all-trades. Today I've been using my watch as a remote control for Spotify over the Chromecast Audio. Really fabulous.
That said, I think the progress with language capabilities on Android Assistant is too slow. I also had a six month hiatus with voice entry in e g Google Keep because of the shift to AW 2.0 from the previous version, before I figured out why it was behaving like it was. Info on the issue very poor, also by reviewers in the media etc.
ATM, with the purging of Android Wear hardware from the Google store, AW really only looks so so in the media, and this will influence consumers unless Google takes a firmer marketing grip, I believe.
The new update regime over the Play Store is a step in the right direction. It's only likely to influence already those who know AW from before. I think a road map would help a lot, too, and a showing of hands, a joint picture of all the staff at Google who are working with AW.
It allows you to write your own watch faces. It isn't as smooth if an experience as Puji Black, but gives you a lot of freedom (such as rotating your watch face 90 degrees).
Your constant posts demanding the developer "FIX IT" aren't constructive. If there is a problem, send an email to the dev, which can be found in the Google Play store.
You might also want to change your tone. I realize it can be frustrating when the app doesn't work as it should but it's just the weather. Yelling and using excessive exclamation points won't make someone want to do you any favors. It just comes off as extremely rude.
Look out a window or go outside if you need to know that badly.
you need this app: [link] (or the premium version)
to import this "time to fuck v2.0" watchface: [link]
feel free to customize.
Nope, thats all it is.
This gif, in watchmaker pro (you'll need to enlarge it to fill the watch)
Thanks man! I actually created it from scratch with "Watchmaker" a killer app that lets you create and use custom watch faces. It's a few bucks for the pro version but totally worth it, there are literally hundreds of thousands of cool designs made with it that you can download and use.
Watchmaker - It's an app that lets you download and use a tonne of premade faces, as well as make your own. It's also a Tasker plugin and can run Tasks.
With a bit of Lua magic, you could easily conjure up a face that runs Tasks to tell Tasker the watch is charging and what not.
Can even go as far as this; [link]
If you use /r/WatchMaker as found here on the Play Store, you can set a custom vibrate on a custom timer - mine vibrates three times every hour, for example.
Just download Watch maker for your smart watch, then the Spotlight watch face and you have something similar. Use it on my LG Urbane and I love it!
I use watchmaker
It's a paid app, but after I paid I found a 700mb pack on XDA with tons of watch faces. I believe it has free watch faces available too, maybe it's worth a shot.
You will find many options for customising your own faces, or you can download and install faces from many of the talented designers who make watch faces, mostly for free...
Get WatchMaker Premium for a few dollars, which gives you access to 20-30 000 FREE watchfaces. You also get 10 featured watches preinstalled with the app. At least one of them, BlackHawk V 1.0 does what you want. What's available? Check out the Google+ group WatchMaker - Beautiful Watches for Android Wear for the latest, and Watchawear.com for what's available. There are enough free watch faces to last you a life time.
OK. Easy peasy.
Start by getting an app called Watch Maker
Next, download this file
Open watchmaker and complete the setup process. Once you have watch maker set as your face, go back to the app on your phone. On the watch maker home screen, look top right for a box with an arrow and tap that suckah. You'll be shown tour downloads folder. Select evilandlazypens.watch and get ready to amaze your friends.
I'm aware that your face is kind of shitty right now, and I promise that updates are already in the works.
you need this app [link] (or the premium version). and here is the watchface download: [link]
feel free to customize (as always =)
Very simple, you'll need this app and import this gif into a custom watch face then enlarge it to fill the watch face
Watchmaker and Facer are pretty good. They both have a massive collection of great watch faces!
Android Wear is already there - [link]
And here are some samples of what's been made -
It would be cool if some dev did this for Watch as well, but who would have the heart to replace all 24,000 of those photos?
I'll add a little more information to my post.
I made this face using the Android app WatchMaker. This app needs to be downloaded along with the watch face in order for it to show up on the watch. My watch face is not an app itself.
So technically, the face should work on any android smart watch.
Unfortunately I only have a Moto 360 so I made the borders accordingly. Someone with a square watch would just have to stretch the borders out, that should be it.
You can make your own watch face with step count with WatchMaker ([link]). You can also import one you like on facerepo and add the step count tag anywhere.
Isn't this the WatchMaker you are talking about? Because I'm only finding 10 simple free watch faces. Is there a hidden menu or something?
Sorry to be a pain - but I assume this is the app. Is there a way to transfer the face to watch without paying for the companion app?
Photowear is the simplest for what you want but if you want that plus more check out Watchmaker or Facer. You can use photos or even a gif/video for your background with the time displayed over it.
If you put some time into WatchMaker, you can make it yourself.
I made a copy of TicWatch's LED watch face here, and it came out pretty nicely if I say so myself. Just gotta make the battery indicator a little nicer.
If you prefer build it yourself (in app purchase feature) and upload to the cloud without any additional subscription (like facer) then i recommend WatchMaker
The free version doesn't offer the function, but the IAP price is worth every penny. You get access to tonnes of pre made faces or make your own.
Are you sure? The purchase method was migrated so there is only one actual watchmaker app. If you like me you bought Premium (not IAP), first Install this; [link]
this is the "free" one with IAP.
Now, install this; [link]
Open latter one and follow instructions.
WatchMaker 5.6.0 in Beta!
Okay I think I've figured out the problem - this watch background is for the Active watch only, and you have a 42mm one.
But I think you can set custom backgrounds to your watch, so if you could recreate that background as a photo you could set it as your background. There are some apps to help you make custom backgrounds like this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=slide.watchFrenzy&hl=en_GB
If you have an Android Wear watch and use Watchmaker ([link]) then I've created a similar one.
You can get the watch file from here: [link]
It updates every minute instead of randomly but it does the job!
I use WatchMaker. You can set the on screen time from default, and in increments up to 2 minutes. That is just one tiny bit of what can be done with this app. You can create your own watchface. This app gives access to approximately 100,000 free watch faces and a lot of paid varieties, in addition. Some of them are freely available here, for example. There is a community on MeWe, too.
One of the watch faces I use has invisible overlays so that by just one tap on the watch face I can launch Messages or Telegram, and start dictating messages, or Google Keep to make a quick entry over voice, or other apps of choice. Amazingly convenient. No need to go through any menus. I wouldn't have gone Wear OS without WatchMaker.
Watchmaker (I use this. The best IMO)
There are others, but these are the big 2 for custom faces you can make from scratch.
Download from play store on phone [link] . Download watchmaker companion watchface on watch [link]
First, the difference is your Netflix is a service. That's what your playing for. Their is also software connected to it, but that's not what you're paying for. You're paying for the service.
With WatchMaker you're buying a piece of software that was designed and built to run on a specific computer (phone).
Another analogy: If I bought Microsoft Word for my Windows computer, I wouldn't expect that if I switched to a Mac computer that Microsoft would give me a Mac copy of Word.
I would expect that any Word documents I made on my Windows version of Word would also work in my Mac version of Word. And this should be the case with watch faces as well.
* The Play store page for watchmaker has an email link right on it.
* Alex Curren usually has a pinned post on the Google+ page listing the newest version where he's also listed as owner, so it would be very easy to + him in a question there.
* There's a facebook page were you can also contact the developer.
Odd, I see it just to the bottom left of the preview of the watchface. I did make it in the Android app WatchMaker. You might need that to use it.
There are several different apps you install on your phone and your watch---two of the most popular are Watchmaker and Facer.
The easiest way to get the faces onto your watch is to browse to the FaceRepo site on your phone and you will see a "download" button on the page for the watch face you want. This will download the watch face and import it into the appropriate app.
Once the face is in the Facer/Watchmaker app, change to that app on your watch and then on your phone, bring up the app and choose that face. Voila! The chosen face will now display on your watch.
I know it might sound complicated, but it's not really once you have everything set up.
>Watch Faces: Some are fantastic. Most are not. Still looking hard to find a face that meets my simple requirements. Watch Face, Click for stop watch, click for timer.
This can be done with the app WatchMaker - [link]
Directions for using it with an s3 are in the app description on the play store, it's pretty easy to set up and use.
The main app now is [link]
[link] is the license app and can be used to transfer old licenses to the main app
I had the first Moto 360 for about a year. Bought it because it actually looked like a watch. The customization was one thing that really sold me on it, loved being able to change watchfaces on a whim. Apps like Watchmaker let you take the customization even further. I used mine quite a bit for reminders and keeping track of my schedule at a glance, getting only the notifications I deemed "important" pushed to my wrist was nice.
Ultimately I had to stop using it once I started my new job. Sometimes I miss it, sometimes I don't, but I think I got my money's worth after a year of use.
Based on the couple searches I just did, I don't think so since it was made in Watchmaker Premium. However using Watchmaker Free (just the free version), you should be able to use it
WatchMaker lets you do that. It's extremely powerful and flexible, though the cost of that is that it can be a lot of work to create a watchface. FaceRepo has a large selection of watchfaces people built for WatchMaker, as well as for Pujie Black and Facer (which doesn't, to my knowledge, support the calendar). You can look around and see whether there's anything that suits your style.
Watchmaker. I love custom watch faces and this one not only lets you create your own but the community (which can be a bit cliquey) has several sites containing hundreds of watch faces. I've installed tons of other watch faces but this app lets you recreate most of them yourself.
you need this (free) app: [link]
and here is the watchface: [link]
feel free to customize it/share it/fap on it/show it your mom
Watch Maker allows you to create your own faces and assign tasks (including app launches) to certain things on your screen. For example, I have a weather icon in a corner and when I tap it, it opens the weather.
Ok. But it is in portuguese and not complete. Watch face for WatchMaker.
Here the watch file.
that effect is created by using the gyroscope, so it should work on the Huawei watch as well
its probably just that Huawei doesn't use it in its faces, but there are 3rd party ones that do
Watchmaker, for example, does
As I do not have my smartwatch yet but I am "collecting" cool watch faces to try where exactly can I find the "Urbane" creation you did. Do I need to install the WatchMaker Watch Face and find it there or?
Is this the app you're talking about? I might give it shot. Looks pretty cool.
And have you tried this app?
I found some pretty good watchfaces for my OG Steel that display most of the info I need at a glance.
WatchMaker is also a great app. It has a large google+ community that posts extremely creative and detailed watch styles that you can download. Its pretty awesome
Link to free app version:
Link to G+ community: [link]
Since you can communicate with the phone, any of those things you described are already available in Android Wear. The way notifications work, you wouldn't really need the music controls on the face either.
Anyways, here's one of the more popular ones that has scripting support: [link]
Also check out facerepo.com to see what's going on there. At some point I'm sure Apple will add this kind of support.
There is a watch face that looks like this made in [link] Watch Maker. The app costs money and i don't have a link to it though. So it is possible.
It does work for the gear actually! You need to buy the WatchMaker app and then you can use the watchface for yourself
Not to be rude, but read the description again..
One purchase! One low price and over 60,000 watchfaces!
Pujie Black is excellent. WatchMaker and Minimal & Elegant are also 2 other customizable ones that are highly recommendable.
For pre-made ones, WatchMaster is my favorite, but I got the lifetime sub when it was still available for $5, so I don't know if it's worth it now.
I picked up an Explorist too! Here are some faces I've been playing with:
These three each have tons of faces and allow you to make your own. I put them in order of how much I like them so far:
These standalone faces are nice too:
If you invest in WatchMaker, Facer, and/or Pujie Black, be sure to check out these pages for lots of additional faces:
Hope that helps, there are TONS of faces out there!
The watch is possibly the Huawei Android Wear watch:
The watch face is called Explicit:
And uses the Watchfacer app:
Edit: The watch face could also be this one (many clones available):
Download one or more of these apps:
Then head over to FaceRepo for TONS of faces to choose from.
Yes you can! You can download apps on your smartphone such as WatchMaker, Facer, Universal Wallpaper, and others to explore what people have made.. there are plenty of watch faces you can use and you can also create your own. My favorite so far is this one xD
This is an Moto 360 Watchface, mady by myself using the App Watchmaker (Premium)
The Picture of Nick used is This one (This is not the original Source. Apparently the Twitter Post of it was deleted. :( )
You can get the Watchface here and import it inside the app.
If you want me to, or you are unable to, I can try and design a Watchface for you. :)
Watchband: 22MM Quick-Release Stainless Steel
Watchface: Custom (Watchmaker)
Review: Credit: /u/bmg1001
The band feels amazingly high quality and easy to install. It has quick release pins and fits perfectly. Looks exactly like the OEM Mesh Band and it goes from 18 to 22mm and doesn't go thinner down the band.
Took 10 minutes in WatchMaker:
Font: Roboto/Light(didnt bother looking for the Apple watch font as they did steal the design from RobotoComparison
Open WatchMaker and import the watch face by tapping the arrow icon in the upper-right corner
Customize to suit your need. I suggest Roboto Light as the font and keeping dimmed colors at white(#FFFFFF)
I use watchmaker, but there's other apps like facer.
My best guess is that OP is using WatchMaker to create the backgrounds.
You need to install Watchmaker from Android Play Store on your phone and also Watchmaker Companion from Galaxy Store on your watch. While the basic Watchmaker app for the phone is free, the Samsung Galaxy Store Watchmaker Companion for the watch has a cost of about $2.50 --I paid Mx$50 with an exchange of about 20/1.
Once you have them you open Watchmaker on your phone and look for Mission Timer Chronograph UTC 2.2 or just JMTG (my user name) and pick among the 20 or so faces that will appear. You can also follow this link
Watchmaker app here
Companion watch app here
Yet one more way is to grab the .watch file from the Dropbox link I posted before, download it on your phone and try to open it. When Android asks for an app to open it you point to Watchmaker.
For watchfaces, this is what you need => [link]
Watchface maker can pull weather info from third party apps
Edit: added link to app for Android
WatchMaker has Tasker support. I don't know if it can receive any data from the watch though.
Try out watch maker, it was my favorite one to make watch faces on. playstore link for watchmaker
Its a WatchMaker face
Made this in WatchMaker prior to release over a couple commutes!
I looked around for one and found they were all too busy and not in tune with the aesthetic of The Division at all.
Here's a picture with the screen dimmed.
Here's where you can download it!
Send us a pic if you like it and end up using it. Would be nice to see someone else enjoy something i made =)
Watchmaker can incorporate this information too and you can build a complete watchface around it
Watchmaker and all the watchfaces for it you can get from here and here
Watchmaker does (as of recently based on the official API, but it was possible for a long time now based on a hack)
Congrats! from AT&T's $140 deal?
the one app I'd recommend most is WatchMaker, which allows you to design your own face or pick one from the tousands available here
Hi, New here. I'm not able to submit a new link but
I'm not sure if anyone is interested,
Out of my spare time, I decided to make SG WatchLah for Android Wear.
An Inspiration from F***Face
In case anyone want to use this, you have to have
An Android Wear Device
SG WatchLah File
Watchmaker with a selection of faces from FaceRepo and their Google+ community. Kicked out for the premium version - the tool is well worth it. Got about 50 faces loaded on my phone - can't use the same one for more than a few hours. Try some of the BadApps faces with Watchmaker. They're gorgeous and classic - Bell Ross Aviation is amazing.
You need to have the watchmaker app.
Aviary Cockpit ... cheers!
And bonus, white version
Please note that you will need Watch Maker for this to work.
This is a beginning list for you: https://www.reddit.com/r/WearOS/wiki/tipsandtricks. To it I would definitely add Watchmaker, without which I would not have WearOS at all. It had 10 times the number of actual users on the Google+ community compared to the also ran Facer. Today you find the Watchmaker community on WeMe.
I feel it could be easily created in the WatchMaker app.
Yea, but now I'm guessing I am literally throwing you in the deepened; unless you're savvy with Lua (Tasker+AutoWear is to bright screen and ramp up media volume to trigger alarm, then turn media volume back).
I should also add, these are all paid apps. Watchmaker can't do the sounds of custom faces for free, but Tasker and AutoWear have full 7 day trials.
Trial of Tasker; [link] (paid version here: [link])
AutoWear; [link] (includes trial)
Here's an app for classic watch races, rolex, patek..
Install this [link]
Then install this [link]
Find your favorites!
One other site for watch faces [link]
Hope you'll like it
Watchmaker - has a simple, WYSIWYG editor like KLWP and has Lua scripting support (as well as a Tasker plugin).
WatchMaker ([link]) can interact with Automate on Wear OS.
Sure. Though I'm not sure if the feature is premium-only or not
Well, the one I use mostly is called Watchmaker, however, there are a few others…
Some of the other watch designing apps though are… Facer, Mr. Time, or Gear Watch Designer (which obviously only works with Samsung Watches)… to use the premium version of those, you need to pay for them on a per month basis… I think… 🤔
Yes. You should install Watchmaker and then download and import this Watchface
Watchmaker had this, but you need to dig down.
This is what I made in it.
Maybe you can navigate to [link]
with your phone?
I have no idea what modular watch faces are. Something like this maybe?
Could make such a face yourself (or request one from r/watchmaker) using Watchmaker
You can get it for your phone on the Google Play Store here: [link]
You can get it for your watch on the Galaxy Store here: [link]
You may also need to purchase the premium version on the Play Store: [link] ... not to be confused with Watchmaker VIP.
I bought it so long ago that I can't remember whether you need the premium version or not. Even if you don't, I would suggest purchasing it anyway... particularly if you end up using it. It's always good to support the developers.
Yeah it's by the same company
It's a smart watch. You can download the App and then you're able to create them or use the ones other people have created!
You could build it with WatchMaker.
These last few days this fabulous free watch, Charmegraban Opus, information dense and stylish. Requires Watchmaker, which is a paid app. Prior to that I was using Bob Quinlan's equally fabulous, information dense, and free Orbital Weather, which can be found on Google Play. In addition to all the weather, and other, data the Orbital has a stop watch.
This one [link] ?
You could make your own with [link]
If you'd like to play around with making your own watch faces, check out WatchMaker. I couldn't find one that I liked so I made my own that's basic with all the info I need. If you know Tasker, WatchMaker can communicate with it for even more advanced watch faces.
Hey I used watchmaker app at:
I got the paid version, however there are some free watchmaker apps around as well :)
Get it here
Watchmaker and all the faces you can get for it from here and here
I would recommend you keep it stock for a week, so the battery can settel in and you get a feeling for how long it lasts as the wifi mod or more specifically the dual core kernel that enables it will reduce your battery live
as apps go, I recommend WatchMaker ([link])
It's a third party watchface that allows you to choose between thousands of watchfaces:
Anything's possible with WatchMaker!
.watch files are for WatchMaker - [link]
You have to filter Facer files only (the left menu).
You need to install the Watchmaker app then click the Download button near the bottom of the blog. [link]
Why not just get Watchmaker and install the 1000 or so watch faces available? Or Facer.
