The wallpapers are made to appeal to a wide range of users and are free to download.

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. 
  • Melissa Joy Manning: Rock a different birthstone for every month of the year. 
  • Vivienne Tam: Watch Opera Girl twirl, take a selfie, and more.
  • Nicole Miller: Stay on track and in style with Nicole Miller’s pop art.
  • Y-3: Sport the styles of Yohji Yamamoto, inspired by the beauty of human movement. 
  • Mango: Add instant chic to any outfit with this ready-to-wear watch face.
  • Zoe Jordan: Free your time of clutter with the clean lines of modern design.
  • Harajuku Kawaii!: Express your playful side with this adorable and vibrant watch face. 
  • ASICS: Motivate yourself to stay active with the help of your fitness buddy.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
