Creating Custom Watch Faces

  • Andres Calvo
Chapter

Abstract

The primary feature of any watch is its ability to tell time. With traditional watches, the watch face is essentially immutable: the information that it contains and its appearance cannot be changed. As a result, many people own multiple watches that they use in different situations, depending on the functionality and appearance that is appropriate for each situation. In contrast, users can change an Android Wear device's watch face at any time with little effort. An Android Wear watch can display an elegant and minimal watch face one moment and a casual watch face full of features the next. Furthermore, these devices can display information that would be inaccessible in traditional watches, such as the number of steps a user has taken or the current weather.
