Designer Android Wear Watch Faces now available
Google is polishing its Android Wear OS with some fresh and stylish dial designs called Watch Faces. The designs themselves are free to download and are from renowned artists and brands to give that luxury feel for users. Each Face should be compatible with both round or rectangular displays.
The first set of downloadable Faces include:
- Ted Baker: Reveal your sophisticated side with ten gorgeous designs.

In addition to the new official Faces, there are already innumerable designs available around the web. A handful are simply brazen copies of classic dials such as those from TAG Heuer Carrera. Major manufacturers like Samsung and LG have been teaming up with luxury brands to better merge the technology of smart watches with the expertise of existing fashion designers.
Wearables have been the center of attention over the past couple of years. IDF events have focused heavily on how technology can be used to make shopping easier and how processors can be incorporated into purses and dresses. A recent survey showed that the average consumer is beginning to recognize traditional electronics manufacturers as luxury wearable brands.
