Keyboard for Android Wear
Android Police coverage: Appfour releases a new keyboard for Android Wear 2.0
If you are getting frustrated with the small size of the keyboard Google has provided within Android Wear, then I have some good news for you. Leading Wear developer appfour has created a new keyboard with larger keys. The catch is that you will need to scroll from side to side to access every key on the board. While this constant swiping may be tedious, it most definitely provides larger keys that are easier to select.

Use this standalone keyboard app for Android Wear 2 to replace the stock keyboard and enjoy typing easily and freely. Having problems to type in your wearable because the voice interaction just is not enough or the buttons in stock keyboard is just too small to type? Then this keyboard is your solution.
The Task Master ☑️ Watch Face
Android Police coverage: The Task Master watch face puts your calendar front and center
The Task Master Watch Face is a pretty useful face for Android Wear. What it does is it places your daily tasks into the face in a readable manner. Simply view the differently colored lines on your face to know when your next task will take place. Sure, it may be difficult to remember the colors associated with all of your calendar tasks, but any organized individual should be able to set up particular colors for certain events that are easily recognizable.

Authentic Watch Face
Authentic Watch Face has a classic dive watch look. There are 5 pre-defined color combinations, and the face supports the date, weather, and battery info all while still giving you three spots to place your own watch face complications. While there is no lack of dive faces on the Play Store, the customizability to this one gives reason to at least take a quick glance.

Authentic watch face for Android Wear is true eye-catcher with elegant characteristics and interactive functions. Watch face contains a huge number and user friendly settings on the watch and the phone companion app. The Android Wear 2.0 comes with external complication which this watch face supports completely.
SlenderMan – Creepy Watch Face
While I never understood the appeal of SlenderMan, this SlenderMan – Creepy Watch Face actually looks pretty cool. Essentially it is an animated watch face where SlenderMan moves closer and closer. It is presented in black and white, and the face fits both square and round watches.

Keep calm and don’t look at the window. Slenderman is a popular scary character that once was a simple internet creepypasta. This unique carefully-animated watch face is about him. Are you watching? He’s watching you too.
IRONSPIDER – Watch Face
Tha PHLASH’s IRONSPIDER – Watch Face looks really similar to the design found on Spiderman’s costume, complete with a webbing backing. It supports square and round faces. Any fan of Spiderman should give this a look, as its simple yet elegant design is a pleasure to look at. Sure, it may not contain an official Spiderman symbol, but it sure is close enough.

SW Argon Watch Face
The SW Argon Watch Face is a highly customizable face that gives you an easy way to pick and combine different color combinations. This way you can easily match a particular outfit or simply pick your favorite colors for any holiday or event. While the look of the face is pretty simple, the bright colors used on a black background definitely makes it stand out.

A customisable style for your Android Wear smart watch. You can freely explore different colour combinations to match your outfit, lifestyle and personality. Designed for Android Wear 2.x
Analog Glow LITE Watch Face
The Analog Glow LITE Watch Face is a lite version of an already existing premium face. The main difference between the two is the fact that this lite version is limited in its customizability. If you are okay with the standard look, then you should be all good, but if you would like to change it up, I would suggest purchasing the premium release of the Analog Glow Watch Face.

Time Gate Watch Face
RichFace has pumped out quite a few faces since Android Wear came into existence. Today I am taking a look at their Time Gate Watch Face. It does not support square faces, but anyone with a round face should have no issue. There are 4 predefined colors to choose from, and it contains 3 separate tap zones to place any complication into. Overall the look is a bit cluttered in my opinion, but that may not be an issue for those of you who own a watch with a large diameter face.

Time Gate watch face for Android Wear is nice and clean futuristic watch face with interactive functions. Watch face contains a huge number and user friendly settings on the watch and the phone companion app. The watch face contains 3 tap targets on the screen and you can customize them to be more informative which include various number of data such as FIT data information ox any external data from external complications.
