    Hello guys!

    Ever since the LG G Watch came out, I have been desperately excited to have a certain watch face. In fact, the one I'm looking for is one that shows up in a lot of stock pictures from LG itself. I have searched for months on end and I still cannot find it. I graciously turn to you guys for assistance.

    Is it possible to have the attached image as a watch face, and if so, anyone know where I can get it?

    Please let me know!!

    That looks like some sort of Google Now screenshot. Searching the image indicates to me that it is a stock marketing image.:(

    Yes! Exactly... I was thinking the same. Perhaps there is an app like Facer that could do it? What do you think?

    You could easily do this with facer or watchmaker. But if you find me that wallpaper (or a close one that you want to use), I'll make you one and put it in the play store.

    That's a screenshot. Can you find a wallpaper that is close to that? I'll add the digital clock and the google icon to it.

    Something like this?

    You've got a lake, at night, with kind of a discolored sky going on in the screenshot you like. I don't know what appeals to you about that background image so it's easier if you pick it.

    The closest I can find is this. This is an actual back ground.

    Apologies, by the way, for posting a screenshot, haha. That was my bad.

    No problem. I took what you gave me (and did some photoshopping trying to make it match what you originally posted). It's not perfect but I think it's fairly close (matched the green hue of the sky pretty well I think). Want me to use this one?

    Here's a mock up of what it would look like. If it looks okay to you, I'll do the code and make the apk. I'll probably just post it here if that's okay. This is really only configured for square watches as a round watch would crop the "g" and the time the way it's configured to look like the original you shared.

    Oh my God it's PERFECT! Phenomenal! Yes, please use this one! The 46 degrees thing will still just be a Google Now card though that I can just dismiss right? And would you mind adding the date right under the digital clock if possible? I am in love with this design! And yes, you can post the link to the Google Play store for download here if that's what you'd like! Thank you so much! Can't wait to have this as my watch face!

    I don't know if it's to much to ask, but I very much like the original picture I posted (I like the mix of the purple and green). Could you also make that one into a watch face? I just absolutely love your design, and I want to be able to switch from them both!

    Yeah, I can do them both. And adding the date is no problem. What format do you want the date in? 3/10/2015 -- 3/10/15 -- Tues, March 10 -- Tuesday, March 10

    What I meant is that I'm not going to post the app to the play store. I just don't want to mess with the marketing photos needed and things like that. I'll just post the link to the apks in my dropbox folder and you'll have to set your phone to install apps from unknown sources and then side load them. Both of them will show up as options for your watch face. Let me know about the date format and then give me a day or so and I'll post them.

    Yes! The date in the format Tues, March 10 is perfect! And ok! Sounds perfect! Can't wait to download them!

    What about ambient mode? Do you want the date/time to remain unchanged (left corner) or do you want it larger and centered on the watch face?

    Something like this?

    [​IMG]


    Also...what about ambient peek cards? Do you want your notifications visible when the watch is in ambient mode? If so, then I'd recommend leaving the clock/date the same way it is in active mode so the text doesn't get overlapped. If not...then you can have the clock stay in the top left corner or move it to the center...it is just your preference at that point.

    Yes that looks great! It would still be possible to see Google Now cards while in ambient mode though right? Like in attached.

    The first pic is just a notification. Just want to make sure I can get those too. Here's the Google Now Card

    If you want to see the cards in ambient mode, then I'll just make the ambient screen retain the clock and date in the upper left section (identical to the active screen). Otherwise, the text might overlap and that doesn't look good LOL!

    I always hide ambient cards by default, but I will enable that in this watch.

    Sorry, by the way, didn't see the paragraph under the pic of the watch in ambient mode asking about the cards.
