An Android Wear watchface design could win you a trip to Paris Fashion Week
Google has announced that its upcoming collection of Android Wear watch faces – no doubt part of Android Wear 2.0 – is going to be crowdsourced. In collaboration with Paper Magazine, the Android Wear team will judge entries of watch face designs – not actually functioning watch faces – and select five winners.
Again, this is a design contest, not a coding challenge, so all you’re required to do is design the look of a watch face and submit it to Instagram before September 15. You’ll need to append the hashtags #AndroidWear and #WearWhatYouWant to your entry and you can use the same to check out the other submissions. You’re only permitted to submit one design though.

The grand prize winner will be awarded a mentorship with one of the judges mentioned above, score a trip to Paris Fashion Week (with a +1) and pick up either a regular Huawei Watch in black or silver or the “elegant” or “jewel” version. They’ll also get a couple of MODE watch bands, several catered meals (including one with a Googler) and some other fun stuff.
