When it comes to smartwatches, most of them have pre-installed watch faces but the ability to add third-party watch faces still remains one of the biggest strengths of the platform. Developers can develop a number of designs providing users with a wide variety of choices and Android Wear OS being an open-source platform developers have the full freedom to build any type of watch face.

Between choosing the right watch face you should stick to the important aspects. If you want all stats displayed then you would look for an option with plenty of information that can be shown with widgets on the watch face. If you want your smartwatch to feel more like a normal-looking traditional watch then you can pick a classic aesthetic like an analogue clock that also provides a techy vibe.
