So we got Android Wear watches last year. I have a Huawei, but only because I left my Moto 360 at my parents house when we went home for Christmas and had to get a replacement. I love it. And fortunately DS wanted the Moto and he stayed longer than we did on the East Coast, so he ended up taking mine back to Cali with him – and he might be able to use it once I send him the charger LOL!
I do love my Apple computer but the design possibilities for Android Wear is so much more fun. I sat down with the Facer app (the browser version) and took some images from my Art Journal and turned them into watch faces.
In a few minutes, I was able to make four faces – all these came from Art Journal pages I have previously done.
The bug us a stamp. You’ll recognize it from the new header on my blog. The AJ page:
This is the only one I did with watch hands. I like the fact I can upload my own fonts to use, and the digital time looks better, to my eye. The next one used a snippet from the same page, but from an in-process photo:
The date is actually easier to read than it looks here.
Then I did another AJ page snippet:
One of my favourite pages. The watch face looks like this:
The bit at the bottom is called the “flat tire” and is what allows you to swipe up to access another screen.
On the last one I used a couple of fonts I like a lot:
Might be a bit too much my style, but of course I love it. And the AJ page:
I have 100s of ideas using bits and pieces – Gelli prints, stamps, ATCs….I think this is going to be fun.
Now I just have to sort out getting the faces onto the actual WATCH. DD and I are sharing an Android phone, for the purposes of watch face design, but I hope to get these added to my actual watch very soon.
