    How often do you change your faces on your smartwatches?

    A function to change faces is easily accessible on Android Wear. I don't change it much and sometimes I just access the change face menu screen by accident.

    Do you guys change your smartwatch faces often?

    Yep.

    Often daily or more depending on my mood, dress and planned usage.

    Re: How often do you change your faces on your smartwatches?

    When I first got mine, I changed the face fairly often, but eventually settled into just one or two.

    I also used to switch to a plain red-colored digital face for wearing it into bed or at the movies, with the idea that it'd be less intrusive if it switched on by accident. Apple added what they call "theater mode", though, which ignores wake-on-wrist-raise and requires me to tap the face to turn on the display. Now I use the same face pretty much all the time.

    (swap the Activity rings into the upper left corner, and that's what I'm using today)

    All the time... I have close to 72 different watch dials, and I am adding more all the time. Fleigers, military, and field watch designs are my favs.

    Not very often. I specifically want 24-hour analogue faces.
    Unfortunately these are tricky to find as an awful lot of the digital faces are tagged 'analog' and many of the faces tagged '24h' turn out to be 12-hour.

    That’s the one analog style I’d like to see added to the Apple Watch. Either a 24-hour main hand (like a Meistersinger or the special 24-hr Navitimer) or a GMT-type hand.

    My Apple Watch lineup of faces:

    In the center, I have my most basic faces—a very sparse Utility and Solar. These are the ones I use the most.

    Attachment 12900207 Attachment 12900209

    At the outer edges are the Modular faces I use for info—when/where I am, ESPN, music, international travel.

    Attachment 12900221 Attachment 12900223 Attachment 12900225 Attachment 12900227

    There is no one face that would elegantly contain every complication I want. But, this has forced me to think more about which tasks I use my watch for and which complications are needed for said tasks. (Though I admit, I am not above adding in an unneeded complication to act as a filler for visual balance.)

    Like I say near the top, the simple ones are the ones I use most of the time. How often I change faces depends on which tasks I do throughout the day.

    Last weekend, I added one for the movies. Yes, I know the AW had a theater mode, but I kept forgetting to to switch it out of theater mode, and a few hours after a movie, I’d have that moment of confusion as to why raising my wrist was not waking up the screen. This new face is minimally bothersome in a dark auditorium, yet still readable a few hours later.

    That is a good design for the application, better than a black screen
    for theater mode in my opinion.


    Thanks,
