Make your Android Wear device look like an Apple Watch with Pear watchfaces

by: Edgar CervantesSeptember 12, 2014


The Apple Watch was all the hype this week. Us Android fans may not be all about the new smartwatch, but we know at least a handful of you like the interesting UI the Cupertino giant has put together. If there is one thing we love about Android Wear is the open philosophy it follows. You can even make your Android Wear smartwatch look like an Apple Watch!

The guys from UhrArt have posted a couple watchfaces that will give any Android Wear device the soon-to-go-popular look of the Apple Watch, with the dark background, small icons and all. Not really our style here at Android Authority, but we do love that we have the freedom to do this. And it’s not only for developers, even you can create your own watchfaces!

Apple Watch

Apple Watch

This is made possible thanks to apps like UhrArt’s WearFaces, which allows you to make, customize and manage your watchfaces. They made a version for round and square Android wear screens, as well as energy-efficient versions of both.

These can be downloaded straight from the Developer’s website. They can also be applied via the WearFaces app, which is available from the Google Play Store. You can take a look at the video below to watch a nifty tutorial on how to apply these watchfaces.

Beat that, Apple!

    Haha wow android wear wins!

    • Brandon Franklin

      The lazy execution award

      • Fabian Taveras

        Lol how? Android wears UI is wayyyyyy better IMO to that of Apple. a dev made this launcher for those that want to play with an apple like UI but without having to cough up 349$ for a basic model. So if anything it’s a smart cost efficient way to experience more without having to burn an obscene amount of money.

  • cee

    and then some loser will be on here saying how Apple copied UhrArt, like they do now with haemorrhoid.

    • ThunderCrackR

      Of course they say. If they say that Android or Samsung copied some things from Apple but Android/Samsung had that things for years, why wouldn’t they do the same things when it is the opposite situation?

      • cee

        Bing the Google Sooner phone (copy of a Blackberry).

        Then look up the G1 Sidekick (copy of Nokia).

        Then open this link

        Name one actual innovation from Scr-U-gle or Similarsung. I put this question up over a year ago on this very site, still waiting for a reply.

        • Josh

          From Google? Google Now comes to mind. Oh, and who can forget the search engine?

          Samsung made the Galaxy Note, the phone that somehow single handedly started the phablet trend.

          Have you been checking replies?

        • ThunderCrackR

          Check the Samsung SGH-Z610 released a whole year before the first iPhone. What do you see? A 3.5inchi, capacitive touchscreen phone. With 5MP main camera (iPhone had such a camera starting with the 4th one), front camera (until iPhone 4, Apple did not have this), video recording (until 3GS, iPhone could not have recorded). Also, a round, main button (the same as an iPhone released after a year). This is an innovation from Samsung, if it was good enough for Apple to copy it. Also, the flexible display is also an innovation from Samsung. Have you seen the Note Edge. The phablet category itself is Samsung creation, also good enought for Apple to launch the iPhone 6 Plus to get into Samsung market share 3 years after the first Note. They created the first smart headset device with stereo frontal speakers, the Galaxy Player 4.2, launched a whole year before the HTC One, for example. They have many other things created, also in terms of UI. Apple also copied Hi Siri hotword from Samsung S Voice, Direct Call feature (in iOS 8 you could reply to a message just by raising the phone next to your ear), landscsape mode, Live HDR feature first introduced in S5 and now copied in the ”new” iPhone 6, phase detection auto-focus, first introduced in the S5 and now copied in the iPhone 6 (of course, Apple said in their launch conference that they are the first to bring it to a phone. Wrong!) and many others. Check the photo down.

          Then check the Knight-Ridder tablet, announced in 1997. Do you see somthing similar with the iPad?

          Then check the Neonode N1m, Do you see how Apple copied the slide to unlock feature? Of course, they said then that they invented it and patented.

          Also, Call icon, Settings gear icon were not invented by Apple, as they said, but were first seen on Sony Ericsson.

          Also, check the DiamondTouch table announced in 2001. It seems that Apple did not invent multi touch as they claimed.

          As when it comes to Google, their search engine which actually made the internet accesible is good enough. But they also innovated in so many other places with Android (check how Apple just copied in iOS8 Android widgets, customatizable keyboard, notifications center, extended notifications, beta testing in App Store etc. Also, they copied many things in iOS 7. Check the picture.) They invented Smart Glasses, a concept which every tech company is trying to immitate. They works on Project Loon which is an innovative way to bring internet around the globe. They have Project Wings, Project ARA, which nobody could say that is not original: to have a phone whose components you could change how you like and afford. They also invented Smart Contact Lenses, which is a medical product good for diabetics, because it will check the glucose level from teardrops, so they do not have to cut themselves every 6 hours again and again.

          Finally, the qwerty keyboard phone is not invented by neither Nokia nor Blackberry. If we approach this mentality, we could simply say that everybody copied Motorola (and it is true), because they invented the first phone.

          Hope your one-year old question now got an answer and that I have covered at least 2% of Google and Samsung innovations over Apple patent-troll. Thank you for reading!

    Congratulations!!! You just made the moto 360 look ugly.

    • Jonathan Kramer

      Too funny dude!

    • Darktanone

      More like lipstick on a pig!

    • Ray

      Moto 360 is already ugly.

  • ThunderCrackR

    Why would I want this? There are arguably better designed Android/Tizen SmartWatches than that Apple Watch, even when it comes to software UI.

  • Marty

    Apple Watch already having an impact and influence on Android. That’s sad because AW has the potential to be so much better.

  • DavidVarghese

    Are they trying to be the worst app for Android Wear?

    • yanz

      No they just want Apple to acquire their company. who knows, right? One man’s trash is another man’s company treasure

    • Damon Adrian

  • Andrew MG

    • Andrew Tan

      • Zaid Shakil

        He is just jealous because Android can do things. :)

      • Fer

        Ok if that lie makes you happy…

        • JasonL1C4

          Does little baby troll want his bottle

  • pallu

    Why would I do such a dumb thing?

  • Brandon Franklin

    Its to bad some of the functionality isn’t possible. Wow both product abbreviate the same apple watch(aw) android wear(aw)….coincidence? Anyway AW makes AW look like its running DOS.

  • Ishaan Malhotra


  • Mf Lye

    damn, the UI gives me goosebumps.

  • Should know better

    Are you blind or just out of touch with those who know better?.. Apple’s arrogant display of “innovation” in tech is about as delightful as their ugly watch. Why would I want that!

  • Stas

    Lol, it’s like to purchase BMW and then try to make it looks like Audi. For what?

    • MasterMuffin

      Because Audi is better :P

      • Stas

        Yes yes, especially with main front wheel drive. -)

      • Huthaifa

        Yeah but in this case The BMW is better.

    • JasonL1C4

      Its like buying a Ford and trying to make it look like a Chevy

  • yep

    y’all do realize that the “$349” version is the base model, smaller
    WOMEN’S size, right? lol. the base men’s version will probably be
    $400-$450. I bet we see a bunch of men iTards walking around with little
    female watches on when these come out, hahahahaha. a smart watch with a
    dial, omfg that’s priceless.

  • chevyguy14

    Easiest way – buy an iWatch. But what is the point of any of these? My phone does it all, and I’ve stopped wearing watches.

  • wferreira

    Do we have to get something from the Iwatch also?
    I am thinking with this that we are the isheeps! Please stop trying to get stuff from their crap!

    • gethylogic

      I like to look at it like this, “We think your interface is ridiculous and we can have it sooner than you. It’s sure nice being an Android user.”

    Free Apple advertising here again??????

  • Kasi Viswanathan

    nothing is left to apple

  • s2weden2000

    Like a win 3.1 desktop? no thanks…

  • Bob Reilley

    Why? The Apple watch UI is hideous.

    • The-Sailor-Man

      Because they wanna show how superior is Apple always, and how everyone wants to take a bit of it.

      • Bob Reilley

        Uuummm that’s not it, have you even looked at pictures of the UI? It looks like a toy made for a 5 year old little girl.
