Google unveils 17 new watch faces for Android Wear flavored timepieces
To make your Android Wear watch look and feel like a new timepiece, Android has unveiled 17 new watch faces for smartwatches powered by Google's operating system for wearables. The majority of the new designs won't cost you a penny, although there are some that will require you to shell out a buck. The new faces come from various sources including a popular puzzle, a world famous Japanese anime character, and one of the most successful mobile game franchises.

Among the new watch face options available are freebies like Moods of Norway, Hello Kitty, Time Will Come, Rubik's Cube, Angry Birds Aviator, George Frost Watch, Terminator Genisys, Lulu Frost, Kevin Tong, TRIWA, Rowley Wristwear, Bang & Olufsen, Geox, Moomins and MUJI to Relax. For 99 cents, you can pick up the ANREALAGE watch face and one showing the Gundam RX-78-2.

Do you plan on adding any of these watch faces to your Android Wear flavored timepiece? You can get a better look at them by clicking on the slideshow below. The 17 will work with square or rounded dials.

I love my Apple watch, but this is the one thing they are missing. I would not be surprised if they announce third party watch faces this fall.

Why would they announce it this fall when that's when watchOS 2 is releasing? If it was coming this fall, it would have been announced with watchOS 2. Don't expect customizable watch faces any time soon. That's a core OS function and Apple doesn't even allow those types of things (i.e. home screen customizations) on iOS.
