- New faces include branded faces with Star Trek, Tetris, and Nasa, with more to come.
It's a good day to be a Facer premium subscriber or for people looking for unique watch faces for their best Apple Watch. Facer has launched the "next-gen" of Apple Watch faces on its platform. Facer is home to one of the biggest libraries of custom watch faces for Apple Watch, and the new next-gen faces promise to include "dynamic complications seamlessly integrated into their designs for a cohesive and unique look." Other features that Facer boasts for watchOS users:
- Stylish and unique faces from some of the best independent designers and brands in the world
- Dynamic complications using various data sources: activity, watch sensors, time/date, etc.
- Color tinting support for even more user-customizability
- Easy one-tap install flow using Facer for iOS.
On top of the new watch faces, Facer has a plan to release branded watch faces. Some brands that are already available in the Facer app are Star Trek, NASA, and Tetris.
These branded watch faces will launch in waves, and Facer says that many more brands will be coming to the platform in the coming weeks. Plus, even more watch faces by independent designers will be coming in the upcoming weeks, which will also include support for weather, location, calendar events, stock markets, and more.
Facer does have free watch faces that everyone can access, but many of the new watch faces announced today are only available to premium subscribers. Facer premium is a monthly subscription fee of $4.99, but yearly subscriptions are available for $39.99.
