It's been about a year since Android Wear was announced, and here we are with a few watches and a ton of apps and faces. I hear there's some other company that announced a smartwatch recently. I think they usually sell fruit or something. Whatever, we're here to talk about all the cool new stuff you can do with your Android Wear watch. So here are the best new apps and watch faces that have come to Wear in the last few weeks.

Hedra

You may call it a smartwatch, but I like to think of this as my +5 bracer of Googling. You can now get your RPG on with Hedra's Android Wear support. It can roll almost any die on your watch or phone. If I get a saving throw, Artem will finish the rest of the roundup for me... damn.

--

Allows you to roll the following dice directly from your devices, as though you have the real thing. Great for Role Playing Games, or those times in life when you just have to flip a coin:

* D2 (a coin)
* D4 (four sided die)
* D6 (six sided die)
* D8 (eight sided die)
* D10 (ten sided die)
* D12 (twelve sided die)
* D20 (twenty sided die)
* Percentile (two ten sided die)

Optimised for mobile, tablet, and with Android Wear support; both round and square watches are supported. Although developed on an LG G Watch, it does look cooler on a round display. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the first Polyhedral dice roller with Android Wear support.

All dice are rendered and textures using OpenGL. Haptic feedback is used to emulate the sensation of the dice "striking" a table when rolled.

Cerberus anti theft

Android Police coverage: Cerberus Anti-Theft App Updated With Android Wear Support And Lollipop Administrator Privileges

In the most recent Cerberus update, the developers have added support for Android Wear. You can use Cerberus to alert you if the connection with your phone is broken. The watch-based Cerberus app can also ring the phone. It's not the first app to do this, but if you've already got Cerberus installed, why not use it?

--

Cerberus is a complete anti-theft application, the best protection you can get to recover your misplaced, lost or stolen Android device. This is a free trial for one week, then you can buy a lifetime license for a small price (4.99€) from within the application: no monthly or yearly fees, just a one-time payment. License is associated to your Cerberus account, if you have multiple devices you can use all of them (up to 3) with the same account.

It has three ways to protect your device:
- Remote control through the website www.cerberusapp.com
- Remote control via text messages
- SIM Checker (for devices that have a SIM card): you will automatically receive alerts if someone uses your phone with an unauthorized SIM card

Remote control allows you to perform many operations on your device, like:
- Locate and track it
- Start a loud alarm, even if the device is set to silent mode
- Wipe the internal memory and the SD card
- Hide Cerberus from the app drawer
- Lock the device with a code
- Record audio from the microphone
- Get a list of last calls sent and received
- Get information about network and operator the device is connected to
- And much more.

Cerberus automatically enables GPS if it is off when you try to localize your device (only on Android < 2.3.3) and you can protect it from unauthorized uninstalling - more info in the app configuration.
The app works even if the device does not have an internet connection thanks to remote control by sms messages. Also, the SIM Checker feature allows you to know the new number to send texts to, if the SIM card is changed. Texts received and sent for Cerberus remote control will not start any notification and will not appear in the Messages application.
Cerberus does not drain the battery because there is no background service running: it will activate only if there is a remote control request and will stop afterwards.

More features for rooted devices: complete uninstall protection (a thief will be able to delete Cerberus only by flashing another ROM), GPS auto-enabling even on Android > 2.3.3. More info on the website in the Help section.

Navball WatchFace

Kerbal Space Program stole about five weeks of my life last year. It's insanely addictive and I eventually had to uninstall it for the sake of my sanity.

Seeing this on my wrist would probably make me crack and dive back in. Gotta be strong, though. Must resist temptation.

NAVI - Watch face

Android Police coverage: Navi Is A Fully Customizable Neon Colored Watch Face From Tha Phlash
