10 of the best Android clock widgets out there
Everything on Android can be customized, including the way you want to see the current time and date on your screen. The quantity of clock widgets in the Google Play Store is massive, so outfitting yourself with a new one is something you can do every hour or so, if you wish. Even if you have very specific tastes, chances are you'll find something that rocks your boat. And if your tastes are that specific, why not build your own widget and make it your contribution to the sea of choice?

Before you head off to the Play Store for another clock widget hunt, drop by in the slide-show where we rounded up ten widget-y timekeepers that we thought will look really cool on your home-screen. The Android horologists seem to be mostly about minimalism these days, but among the many widgets built with clean, straight lines you'll also find some original takes on bringing an analog watch-face on a smartphone screen.

Sense Clock is awesome, but Xiaomi's One More Clock is better.

I use Timely widget as my clock. I love the font size/thickness(boldness) that timely use, and I hate the default android clock font size/thickness(boldness).

This widgets are for Android OS and one of Android OS advantages is that Android OS supports widgets like this. And that's mean that differently from your comment, my comment was not off topic. So if you don't have better what to say, then use your own advice and ST*U instead of writing butthurt off topic comments.

I always install transparent clock and weather widget. It has some customization options and a simple design. I'll try some of these though.

Chronus probably the best digital clock and, Animated Clock Widget is simply the best analog widget less than 300KB with no permissions but only donation to Dev for a beer in app in Play Store!! Using that for 2 years now! And it has awesome free theme packs! My favorite is the glass pack! Try animated clock widget with its glass or sense pack and you'll not regret it!!

Take a moment and have a look at the ClockChart widget. It is a creative, stylish, yet a fun way to read your clock, widget for your android devices.
