So, you want a little more variety than what Apple has to offer for watch faces. And, you want them to be more personal than the specially designed images that Apple Faces provides. But you don’t like using any old picture from your Photo library without being able to give it a little more Apple Watch-i-ness.
Watch Faces is a customizable photo app that specializes in making images for Apple Watch. You can use whatever photo you want, and with customizable layers, you can turn a random photo into an Apple Watch face.
The app lets you choose an image from one of three locations, either your Camera Roll, the Internet, or one of the featured images that is included with the app. Once added, you can pinch to zoom in or out and drag the image around to fit within the parameters of the Apple Watch screen.
Then, add an overlay. Most overlays add a level of opacity under the date and time so background fodder doesn’t make it hard to see them. However, some overlays are simple frames. Presumably, the developer has additional overlays in mind for the future, since this is the most unique part of the app.
You can also change the color of the overlay to a huge range of colors and brightness levels.
If you download Watch Faces onto your Apple Watch, you can also see a preview of what the new watch face will look like right on your wrist. However, it isn’t an exact match. Watch Faces on Apple Watch has a secondary bezel that makes the image slightly smaller than it actually is.
Watch Faces costs $1.99. If you want to have a little bit more control over how you customize you’re Apple Watch face, this is a good options for a reasonable price. Download it in the App Store today.
