Google Drops 17 New Android Wear Watch Faces on the Play Store


Partnering with well known brands and designers, Google announced 17 new Android Wear watch faces for your downloading and wearing pleasure. There’s a good chance that you’ve heard of a few of these while others may be a bit more obscure. That said, the brands and their respective watch faces should have something for everyone.

Included in the mix are watch faces from Angry Birds, Moomin, Hello Kitty and “elegant accessories” from the likes of Cynthia Rowley, Lulu Frost and Triwa. Other watch faces include faces from Bang & Olufsen, Muji and Kevin Tong.

According to the Mountain View company, there are over 1,500 watch faces in the Play Store, so while these 17 are just a tip of the iceberg sitting at just over one percent of the available faces, it does showcase the wide variety of watch faces that make up that collection. Of the 17 available, 15 of the watch faces are free, while the Anrelage and Gundam watch faces come in at a measly $0.99.

It should be noted that the Angry Birds watch face appears to be broken and colors do not appear to change on a variety of Android Wear devices and while some may consider a few of these watch faces to be basic, there are a few here that may be worth a look. Personally, I find the GEOX watch face to be refined and appealing while Techaeris writer Kyle Funk has expressed his fondness for the Anrealage watch face. It just goes to show that there is actually something for everyone.

We have a gallery of the various watch faces for you below. Which one or ones — if any at all — catch your eye? Let us know in the comments section below or on social media.
