This analog watchface features a snowflake that changes shape as you take more steps and get fit! Or switch to the time-based watchface so you can stay inside, eat some cookies, and watch the snowflake change shape as time changes. You can even customize the background color!

Android WatchFace Sample

This sample demonstrates how to create watch faces for android wear and includes a phone app and a wearable app. The wearable app has a variety of watch faces including analog, digital, opengl, calendar, steps, interactive, etc. It also includes a watch-side configuration example. The phone app includes a phone-side configuration example.

Additional note on Steps WatchFace Sample, if the user has not installed or setup the Google Fit app on their phone and their Wear device has not configured the Google Fit Wear App, then you may get zero steps until one of the two is setup. Please note, many Wear devices configure the Google Fit Wear App beforehand.
