Published onMay 3, 2024

The Google Pixel Watch and Pixel Watch 2 have a lot to offer Android users, including Fitbit integration for health and fitness tracking and fantastic app support. Each also boasts a sleek, minimalist design perfect for pairing with a personalized watch face. The Pixel Watch below are compatible with both generations so you elevate your experience no matter which model you’re wearing. In addition to native options,  you can also find tons of fantastic third-party Wear OS watch faces, a few of which we discuss below.

How to change your Google Pixel Watch face

To change the face of your smartwatch right from your wrist, press and hold your current watch face. Then, swipe all the way left and tap Add new. You can also browse and swap watch faces in the Pixel Watch app on your paired phone.

The best Google Pixel Watch faces

Classic

With a shortcut to the Fitbit app, Classic is a hardworking, attractive option.

The Classic Pixel Watch face is simply, well, classic. An elevated, modern analog pick with customizable styles and colors, the watch face mirrors the sleek aesthetic of the device itself. It also offers room for four circular complications to add plenty of information to your screen. You can even turn the second hand off if you want less movement.

Photos

Photos keeps all your favorite memories at-a-glance.
Kaitlyn Cimino / Android Authority

Photos supports up to 30 of your favorite snaps for a truly personal watch face. This standard face is available on most smartwatches, but that doesn’t make it any less appealing. It also allows for a single line-style complication. Just know that some photos tend to emphasize the device’s large bezels.

Concentric

Concentric highlights the round case shape of the device.

Arguably, no design capitalizes more on the round form factor of the Pixel Watch than Concentric. With sections that turn independently of one another, the design is both mesmerizing and calming. This Pixel Watch face also allows room for three additional complications.

Shapes

An analog pick with a bit of quirky personality, Shapes is the most overtly “Google” native pick. The face is customizable by color scheme and can feature 4 or 12 hours. Oddly, the shapes have nothing to do with the hours they represent (you might expect the three-sided triangle to be at the three spot, for example). Regardless, it is a fun, colorful watch face with room for one complication.

Prime

A modern font is the star of the Prime watch face.

Conversely, Prime offers a unique, legible watch face for those who like words. The oversized text in Google Sans makes an impression while also making the current time very obvious. It is minimalist, however, and the design only allows for a single complication.

Track

The Track watch face displays a users daily step count.
Kaitlyn Cimino / Android Authority

One of our favorite Fitbit-forward picks, Track highlights your favorite health or fitness stat. Choose what data you want to keep an eye on and watch the “track” close throughout the day. The face offers an easy way to keep goals like step count at a glance. It also allows for one additional complication.

Analog Arcs

Analog Arcs fully uses the Pixel Watch’s round face, with exterior complications, an analog design, and reserved splashes of color. It’s available on Pixel Watches running the latest Wear OS.

Pixel Watch faces from the Play Store

Beyond native picks, Google Pixel Watch users can access thousands of third-party options through the Google Play Store.

A bit familiar looking, the Pixel Watch Face 2 I by SOC Creations mimics the Pixel Watch’s native Digital Bold watch face. However, it offers users the option to add more information to their displays. Available in 18 color options, the face adds four customizable complications around the bubble font numbers. It’s a simple but effective watch face that maintains the device’s Google aesthetic.

Facer

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Facer is one of the most popular apps for custom Pixel Watch faces and even holds a spot on our dedicated list of the best Wear OS watch faces in general. The app features more than 15,000 watch faces, including everything from unique designs to nostalgic retro looks. Pixel Watch users can download the Facer app for free and then shop picks at all different price points (including some for free).

The other six are set to popular tools, such as messages, calls, settings, heart rate, music, and the calendar. The face also features two complications alongside the shortcut grid and one more across the bottom.

Horizon Watch Designs

Price: $2.99 plus in-app purchases

Animated, beautiful, and customizable, Horizon watch faces put a tiny universe onto your wrist.
