Google has announced that custom watch faces will be available on smart watches running Android Wear, this new feature will be added to the Android Wear SDK.
Google intends to release a new API that will allow developers to create custom watch faces for Android Wear devices, and it should be available to developers soon.
One of the main questions we’ve heard from you is, “will you support third party custom watch faces?” The answer: yes, for sure! Customization has helped Android thrive, and the same will be true for Android Wear. And to make sure that you’re able to create the richest experience possible, we’re hard at work on a custom watch face API.
Google are working on the new API for Android Wear custom watch faces at the moment, some of the features will apparently not be available until Android L is released.
We are working to make this as simple as possible for you so that it’s easy to make good-looking faces that work well across multiple form factors, conserve battery, and display the user’s card stream nicely. Some of these changes won’t be ready until we migrate Android Wear to the Android L release later this year, but don’t fret: they’re coming!
