Facer launches interactive watch faces for Wear OS, Tizen smartwatches

Smartwatch face design platform Facer just announced Facer 4.6.0 this week, which introduces a new feature called interactive watch faces.

With these new faces, users can add buttons for frequently used apps, switch between data modes or implement mini-games and enjoy fun animations. All with just a few taps.

But for the time being, creating this new type of face is limited to Facer Partners. The feature has been available for them in private beta for a few days now and some have already created a bunch of fun designs.  But once the feature is more stable, Facer will probably open it up to anyone who wishes to create an interactive watch face.

The announcement comes just as the World Cup 2018 has started. To celebrate the sporting event, Facer now offers the World Cup Oracle face which allows users to select teams and raise their wrist to guess the outcome of the game.

All these faces and many more are available today on Facer and are compatible with Wear OS and Tizen smartwatches.

So if you have a Wear OS or Tizen smartwatch lying around, you don’t have to settle for the preloaded watch faces. You can choose from hundreds of custom designs thanks to apps like Facer.

While the out-of-box experience might be good enough at first, over time you might find yourself wanting more. Thankfully, Facer offers a massive collection of custom watch faces. Whether you’ve got a round or a square face watch, there are tons to choose from.

The platform also offers an easy-to-use watch face creator tool that can be accessed by anyone with a creative idea. Interactive watch faces is the latest feature to be added by Facer and you’re invited to try it out now.
