Facer, an Android app that allows users to download and create watchfaces for their Android Wear watch, has been updated. Facer now packs an online editor so you can make your own watchfaces without coding, and now has new exclusive designs for your smartwatch. And now, it’s all for free!


There are new watchfaces are live in the Facer Store. Said Facer Store is now divided into a few curated sections such as Analogue, Abstract & Minimal, Time at a Glance, and Fun & Unique. There’s also a new Explore section where you can browse all designs (particularly new ones) and there is also a new search function if you want to find a particular face. A new Watchbox houses all of your favourite designs from the Store (a Facer account needed) and there is a My Designs section which is for your own watchfaces made in the online creator.

This shows the new watchfaces on Facer, and how they might be categorised.

After trying the updated Facer for a few days and the creator, I must say I am extremely happy with it. Everything is fast, and sleek, with no bugs that I have come into at all. Just remember to allow the Facer app to your storage on your watch with Android 6.0 Wear under Permissions in Settings on the device itself.
