Android Wear 5.0 is finally out on all devices, and that means developers are playing a little catch-up. Not only are there new system features to take advantage of, we finally have full support for custom watch faces. Many of the previously released ones have been updated for Android 5.0, but we're focusing here mostly on newly added apps and watch faces.

A lot of the new Android Wear watch faces are cool, and a surprising number of them are free. The settings also tie into the Android Wear app, so make sure to head there as you try all the stuff on this list. Speaking of, the bulk of this post will be watch faces — there were a ton ready to go when Google announced Lollipop for Wear, and the number has only grown since then.

Wear Apps

Coffee - SMS on Android Wear

Android Wear is built mostly around voice interaction for messaging, but Coffee is an SMS app that lets you shoot off messages without talking to your wrist, which isn't always possible. It comes with some built-in messages, but you can add your own custom ones too.

Note, this is SMS, not Hangouts. There is still no way to send a new Hangouts message from Android Wear. You can only reply and canned responses are limited. At least with Coffee, you can say what you want without using your voice.


Coffee is a polished SMS app for Android wear that lets you both send SMS and reply to SMS without talking to your Android Wear watch in awkward situations.

Coffee plays nicely with the SMS app on your phone and only replaces the Android Wear experience.


★ Navigate 100’s of messages with a few swipes in our unique UI

★ Fast and easy -- just flick your wrist to launch Coffee and send an SMS.

★ Customize your own messages that can be sent with two taps

★ Customize vibrations patterns for your favorite contacts so you instantly know who’s trying to reach you

★ Lots of settings


Coffee is the first messenger app built ground up for Android Wear.



Wizz - Vibrations messenger

The unfortunately named Wizz is basically a take on Apple's Taptic feedback messaging then. It's like a virtual tap on the shoulder with different patterns for different people and statements. It's free if you wanna give it a shot.


Share your feelings through the vibrations.

Want to say hello ? Hello Wizz .
Want to go for a beer ? Beer Wizz .
No particular reason ? Just wizz .

So many possibilities...
Make your friends phones vibrate with a simple touch on your screen.

One word, one wizz, one emotion.

Apps With Wear Support


Netflix on your wrist? That doesn't sound very useful. Well, it's not what you think. You will see recommendations from Netflix on your watch. Okay, cool. Now could someone please fix the media controls on Lollipop? Thanks.


Netflix is the world’s leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies on your phone. This Netflix mobile application delivers the best experience anywhere, anytime.

Get the free app as a part of your Netflix membership and you can instantly watch thousands of TV episodes & movies on your phone.

If you are not a Netflix member sign up for Netflix and start enjoying immediately on your phone with our one-month free trial.

Drop Beta (Invite only)

Drop allows you to place files, notes, reminders, and whatnot in physical locations using a sort of augmented reality overlay. When someone is near a valid drop, they can interact with the data in it. The Android Wear angle is that you'll see notifications of nearby drops on your wrist. If it's a message, you can respond from the watch.


Drop is a new location-based social network, allowing you to discover, explore and interact with the world around you in a new way. You can leave messages, experiences, stories and impressions for your friends or the whole world at a specific location.

Watch Faces

ustwo Smart Watch Faces

You may know ustwo as the developer of Monument Valley. They were also ready to go with an official Android Wear 5.0 watch face pack to coincide with the announcement. It's free and a few of them are neat.

Our smart watch faces integrate calendar and weather information so you can see at a glance when your next appointment is, how busy/free you are today, or just what the weather will be later.

An abstract calendar face showing a constant 12 hour overview of your day. Large blobs indicate when you're busy. Fun fact: Albumen is the white of an egg.

If you have a busy calendar and check the time just to work out when you're busy next then this watch face is for you.

Doesn't get more glanceable than this. See what the weather is now. See what the weather will be next.

Rainy? Sunny? Foggy? Don't worry. We got you. This face gives you a constant 12 hour weather forecast.

PAC-MAN Watch Face

If you have a dollar to blow, why not have PAC-Man eating ghosts on your wrist? Perhaps this will help take care of Artem's haunted wrists. It makes more sense on a square watch than a round one, if you want to be canonical, but it works on both.


Bring retro cool & hi-tech to your wrist with the iconic new PAC-MAN Watch Face. Bend time as PAC-MAN races around the dial, devouring power-pellets, ghosts and fruit. Clock watching was never this much fun.

Download the new Android Wear now, the fashionable way to crunch time.

It’s time to download the PAC-MAN Watch Face now.


Rebecca Minkoff Watch Face

If you need a big, shiny gold watch face, here you go. Apparently this is "utterly chic and of the moment." Whatever. Fashion, psh.


The modern, minimalist design of Rebecca Minkoff’s Android Wear watch face is utterly chic and of the moment. The metallic gold screen features the brand's signature pyramid studding and logo.

The Hundreds Watch Face

This is a digital watch face that takes advantage of the accelerometer to animate the patterns so they look like they're floating around the clock. There are a ton of different patterns that shuffle each time you wake up the watch. It's a neat one, and free.


Bring The Hundreds' lifestyle to your new Android wearable, customizable with dozens of graphic themes from the brand portfolio.

The Hundreds is a global apparel and media brand, recognized for its prolific design and unique graphic patterns. Now your new Android wearable can reflect The Hundreds lifestyle, customizable with dozens of graphic themes from the brand portfolio. The time is told in Bobby Hundreds' handwriting while dynamic effects bring the watch face to life as you tilt your wrist.

The Hundreds is Huge.

If you don't see the watch face appearing on your watch, hang tight. The watch face requires the latest version of Android Wear, which should be automatically updated on your watch over the next week.

Un Petit Monde Watch Face

The Un Petit Monde Watch Face is an animated watch face with miniatures in real world environments. It's fun, but the font is a little too messy for my tastes.


The Un Petit Monde (A Small World) watch face transforms Moses’ unique visual style into a series of daily timelapses. Combining miniature toy figures with real-world environments, Moses creates striking scenarios that tell open-ended tales. Layered with travel-inspired interfaces sketched by MediaMonks, each of Moses’ shots are composed and captured specifically for Android Wear.

Raw Vegan Blonde Watch Face

Do you want, like, vegetables and stuff on your wrist? Well, here you go.


Stylize your watch face with Amber Locke’s carefully crafted ‘veg art’ themed designs – inspired by the beauty of natural foods. With an elegant pattern for every day of the week and a fruitful feature that switches the face into an ambient state, this watch face is ripe and ready for your Android Wear.

Despicable Watch Face

This is another paid watch face that launched with the 5.0 update, but this one has Minions from the Despicable Me films. Different ones show up throughout the day, doing different Minion things. Is it worth a buck? Maybe.


NOTE: Please make sure your watch is running Android Wear 5.0. The update is rolling out now but may take a few days. Thank you for your patience.

From Illumination and Universal Pictures, the team that brought you the DESPICABLE ME franchise and the upcoming film MINIONS, comes a Despicable new way to wear a watch. Now, you can experience the subversive Minions on your wrist and get an exclusive glimpse into their world:

• Check the time & find out your Minion's mood. Some are confused, others happy but they're always mischievous
• Brand new style & unique Minion animations from the acclaimed Illumination team

You’ll see different Minions throughout the day as you check the time, some angry, some sad, some happy but all mischievous. Every once in a while, you’ll actually catch the Minions moving around causing trouble on your watch.


Xogram Watch Face

The Xogram Watch Face is basically kaleidoscope flowers with a clock. It actually looks quite nice, though, and adapts to round or square devices. There are 24 different images to choose from and the animations are smooth. Pretty cool for free.


This watch face brings Hugh Turvey's unique X-ray imagery to your Wear watch in the form of beautiful, abstract kaleidoscopes.

Hugh Turvey creates X-ray art, or Xograms, of the unusual and every day. His work touches on science, graphic design and art while always delivering a striking aesthetic.

The Xogram Watch Face displays a unique visual for every moment of the day, based on 24 of Hugh Turvey's X-ray images. Looking at these sources through a kaleidoscopic lens gives new variations and movement to the pieces that spring to life whenever you activate the screen.

Choose between analog and digital displays, 12 or 24 hour, pick your favorite image or cycle them all throughout the day.

If you don't see the watch face appearing on your watch, hang tight. The watch face requires the latest version of Android Wear, which should be automatically updated on your watch over the next week.

Nails By Mei Watch Face

I honestly have no idea what I'm looking at. Just read the description.


Animated creations adapted from hand-drawn illustrations created by Japanese celebrity nail artist Mei Kawajiri (also known as "CiaoManhattan2012"). A series of 12 unique vignettes adds unexpected, playful style to your ordinary Android Wear watch.

[email protected] WATCH FACE

This is a different take on the watch face. The colored bars indicate the position of the hands, but there's a digital face in the center too. The entire shape moves around in response to the accelerometer, and you can check the date by shaking your wrist. That causes [email protected] to pop up with the date. It's weird.


This watch face lights up with the familiar "at sign", making for a playful and bright design.
[email protected] has collaborated with various artists, brands, companies, characters, etc...
and has gained many fans in the "Art Toy" world.

・3D/ Parallax effect
・Select time display from 12 hours/ 24 hours
[email protected] pops up to tell you the date with the shake-you-wrist date notification gimmick

If you don't see the watch face appearing on your watch, hang tight. The watch face requires the latest version of Android Wear, which should be automatically updated on your watch over the next week.

ustwo Watch Faces

This is ustwo's second pack of watch faces, which are also free. I actually like these ones a lot more than the "smart" faces. They have some killer design like the Invert face or Rift. Parallel is neat too, but kind of hard to read. Still, great stuff.


Download a huge collection of beautiful watch faces for free. While some faces might look familiar, others make you feel differently about time. Some even let you personalize to your style. There's sure to be something for everyone in this stunning watch face collection for Android Wear.

A simple, understated design inspired by vintage aircraft instruments.

Time is bound by a grid of horizontal blinds. So minimal.

Who doesn’t like dominos? Now you get to watch them topple over. Forever.

2 customizable colors locked in a never-ending battle.

3 graphic dials rotate with markers to denote the current time.

2 circles pivot around the watch face as time passes.

60 pyramids flip around with each second whilst the background color slowly changes throughout the day.

Spikey hour and minute hands move around the center as seconds roll by.

Watch as shades of grey slide around. You can choose different background colors using the Android Wear app or on your watch.

A bold hour hand is offset by an elegant minute hand creating a strong, yet understated look.

A beautiful geometric watch face that is in a constant state of motion. The colorway changes each hour too.

A dual time zone face where connected hours, minutes and seconds orbit the center.

Note: All faces work on round and square devices.

Plants vs. Zombies™ Watch Face

I think this might be the only app EA has released that doesn't include in-app purchases or an up-front price. It's the proper kind of free. It's a simple Plants vs. Zombies analog watch like those Mickey Mouse ones from Disney, but with a zombie.


Whether you're time traveling through zombie-infested worlds in Plants vs. Zombies™, or just tending your garden of battle-ready plants, you'll know when it's “go” time with the Plants vs. Zombies Watch Face companion on your Android Wear device. There are no settings, though.

Porsche Watch Face

You might drive a 2001 Ford Escort with a mismatched bumper and duct tape on the muffler, but at least you can class it up with this Porsche watch face. I hear it makes your car go faster.


Inspired by the definitive Porsche aesthetic of tradition and innovation, its sleek and minimal design transforms with the race season’s racing days, synchronizing Porsche fans around the world. Designed exclusively for Android Wear.

Behance Watch Faces

Behance is an Adobe platform for showcasing the work of designers and artists. The Behance watch pack takes some of that work and slaps it on your wrist. There are a few different watch faces, each with an assortment of backgrounds from different artists. It pops up notifications on the watch that lead to the artist's portfolio, but you can block those.


- Select artwork from the Behance community to be used as watch face backgrounds
- 5 unique watch faces: AG, Classic, Phrase, Pulse, and Window
- Browse the full portfolio of featured artists on your Android device

Specialized Bikes Watch Face

Cyclists take note, the Specialized Bikes Watch Face helps you know when it's a good time to hit the road with handy weather graphic, wind conditions, and sunrise/sunset data. It's free too.


Whether you’re planning to tear up some trails or sprint down some tarmac, the Specialized Watch Face is the perfect way to customize Android Wear to your style.

Scuba Diver Watch Face

Even though The Scuba Diver Watch Face doesn't include a battery gauge, weather, compass, secondary time zones, or any of the other junk you might find elsewhere, it's still pretty cool. It looks like a real watch without aping someone else's design, and it's easy to read. It's free too.

This is another premium watch face that will cost you a buck. It hits most of the high points with battery, date, and a nice spin on the clock. It makes more sense for round watches, but it recently got an update with a better all-black ambient mode for AMOLED screens.


Angles watch face is an elegantly themed design with a smooth rotation of seconds, minutes and hours in a very unique approach to displaying time. Perfect for round or square Android smart watch devices.

Key features:
• Animated seconds, minutes and hours

Odyssey Premium Watch Face

Odyssey is probably my favorite of the premium watch faces that came out with the 5.0 update. It has a subtle phone/watch battery meter, weather, date, and the design looks nice on round and square watches. It's definitely worth a buck.


Travel through space and time with this modern piece of smart watch making. This analog watch face for Android Wear takes elements of classic pilot watches and combines them with futuristic smartwatch functionality and design.

Shadow Clock Watch Face

I like this watch face in theory, but in practice it's really dim. The shadows don't provide enough definition to be easily read. Just my opinion, though.


Typographer and designer Craig Ward's unique Wear watch face uses shadows, light and tone along with custom designed numerals to reveal the time.

Taking inspiration from sundials, the face transitions from day into night with light and shadows shifting over the course of 24 hours.

Craig Ward, Creative Director of Fatale, is globally known for his pioneering typographic work under the Words Are Pictures moniker. This watch face is an experiment in taking his process-driven style into a brand new digital medium.

If you don't see the watch face appearing on your watch, hang tight. The watch face requires the latest version of Android Wear, which should be automatically updated on your watch over the next week.


This is another instance of "I don't get it." Developer ustwo made this one as well, so maybe it's worth a look.


BCBGMAXAZRIA, named for the Parisian slang term “bon chic, bon genre,” meaning “good style, good attitude,” unveils a collection of custom watch faces for Android Wear devices, created in collaboration with the CFDA and Google Play. The square and round faces evoke BCBGMAXAZRIA’S signature aesthetic—a timeless blend of European sophistication with an American spirit.

• The BCBGMAXAZRIA watch face styles are available in a curated selection of nine customizable colors: silver, rose gold, gun metal, white, nude, denim, burgundy, black and white, and gold.
• The BCBGMAXAZRIA styles feature a digital face with a date display.

Google Santa Tracker

Android Police coverage: Google's Santa Tracker 2.0 Slides Down The Play Store Chimney

It may be a little late, but you can still have Santa on your wrist in the form of an Android Wear watch face. We had this app on the round up recently for some other Wear integration, but Google rolled out a watch face as part of its 5.0 update, so here we are again.


Santa and the elves' are back for 2014 with new games, a redesigned tracker, updates for Chromecast and Android Wear integration.
Play games with elves in jetpacks, rolling gumballs, and sleighs powered by rockets. Once the 24th arrives, follow Santa in his journey around the world. To learn more, visit Happy Holidays.

Battery Watch Face

From the famed developer of Wear Mini Launcher comes a watch face all about your battery level. It shows the time remaining and a gauge around the perimeter. Maybe you don't want to be that obsessed with your battery life, but it's a slick, understated design.


Battery Watch Face is the perfect app if you want to keep an eye on your Android Wear watch battery level.
This fully customizable Watch Face will display the remaining time before you have to charge your watch.

Make it looks like you. With many customization options, it looks exactly as you want it to.
