The best Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 faces
Beyond the basics of a band and case, the first impression of any Samsung smartwatch is the device’s face. For most users, a custom watch face adds tons of information, character, and color. It’s a simple (and often free) way to add style to your device. To help you get started, we round up the best Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 faces.
The best Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 faces
Choosing the right watch face boils down to three major considerations: style, tools, and price. Thanks to the huge selection of native watch faces, Samsung devices are highly customizable on their own. You can browse themes, tailor colors, hand-pick complications, and prioritize the information you want front and center. These options are also free. If the stock options don’t cut it, you can also download more picks. There are even Galaxy Watch apps for building faces from scratch.
Info Board: The best Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 face for stats
An old favorite with a handy new update, Info Board is the best watch face for anyone who likes to keep details at a glance. With room for five complications, the watch face is rich in data and highly customizable. Tapping on each complication will also take you directly to more related information.
If tracking Zs is a high priority, Samsung also introduced a Sleep Coaching watch face. Once you’ve banked enough nights to begin the program, this pick displays your sleep score as well as personalized guidance to improve your overnight rest. It also features your adorable sleep animal based on your sleep habits and sleep hygiene. Most importantly, the watch face keeps sleep top of mind.
Fluid Number: The time-focused watch face
Made popular by starring in tons of Galaxy Watch 6 ads and reviews, Fluid Number is refreshingly simple. Playful digits fill the screen with the device’s most basic function: to tell time. The color of the numbers can be swapped to tons of different hues including some multicolor options with ombre effects. You can also add one shortcut in case you want to add in utility, such as battery specs, heart rate, or quick access to a favorite app.
Perpetual: The best circular Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 face
Someone reminiscent of the Pixel Watch’s Concentric watch face, Perpetual leans into the wearable’s round case. In addition to an analog watch face it also displays the date, month, and current star map. It’s a bit text-heavy at first glance but the arched lettering works well. It’s also, of course, customizable with two background options and the ability to pick text color, hand color, and secondary hand color.
Photo Sticker: The best choice for personalization
We’ve always loved a solid photo watch face. Photo Sticker levels up by relegating your favorite pictures to one section of the watch face. This allows you to add complications that make the watch face work harder. There are five layout options, each with an organic arrangement, and four spots for complications in each layout. Unfortunately, one of those spots is reserved for emojis (see the white heart above), which is somewhat of a waste but at least still playful.
Daily Activity Number: The best pick for tracking stats
With an oversized numeral representing the hour, this watch face is reminiscent of Apple’s famous rings. Three tracks navigate the digit and fill in as you accomplish your activity goals. Track colors are customizable with a matching key to remind users what color represents: steps, active time, and calorie burn. Tapping the watch face will take you to further details about these stats. You can even add one more additional complication to the watch face.
Stretched Time: The best Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic face
In our opinion, Stretched Time is one of the classiest watch faces available, which is probably why it’s limited to the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. So, if you’re currently sporting a rotating bezel on your wrist, you’re in luck. Stretched Time is elegant and refined with customizable styles in a variety of colors and four spaces for complications. We like to keep it simple with just two complications to give the face more air.
Digitium: A data-packed third-party pick
A digital watch face filled with information, Digitum is one of many great data-heavy designs available for download. It keeps everything onscreen, from the date, time, and day of the week to your current step count and local weather. It even displays your battery levels for both your wearable and paired phone, all while providing the feel of an old-school watch.
Vanishing Number: The best minimalist third-party watch face
Extremely simple yet effective, Vanishing Number offers an at-a-glance visual of time passing. As the invisible hour hand passes over the central digit representing the current hour, it erases it. Meanwhile, minute marks appear as the minute hand passes. Colors are not customizable but the high contrast black and white work well. There is even room for a single complication such as battery life shown above. We like this option as a Galaxy Watch 6 Classic face in particular.
Facer: The best Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 watch face app
One of the most popular platforms for building your own watch faces is Facer. The app features hundreds of thousands of picks to choose from, plus templates for creating your own. You’ll find branded designs featuring pop culture references, movie characters, and much more. Downloading the app itself is free, but face prices vary.
If you aren’t happy with any of the native watch faces, browse downloadable options in the Galaxy Wearable App.
To add more faces to your device, press and hold your current watch face. Swipe all the way to the right and tap the plus sign. You can also add faces in the Galaxy Wearable App.
