Get some Star Trek on your wrist with an LCARS themed Android Wear watch face

Starwatch
We’re still a long way from using your watch to ask Scotty to beam you up, but you can get some Star Trek theming on your new Android Wear watch thanks to the Star Watch watch face now in Google Play.

The watch face gives you an LCARS (Library Computer Access/Retrieval System) interface for your watch. The LCARS system is well known to Trekkies as it’s the primary OS used on computers in the Star Trek universe. It’s also looks to be quite a usable design as a watchface – although I still can’t decipher the star dates.

It’s an Android Wear specific app and though you’ll technically have an app installed on your phone, you won’t see it in the launcher. Instead the app merely acts as a vehicle to install the APK to your watch. Once synced, you can then select the watch face the usual way ‘Ĺong press on the clock and swipe left or right, tap to select’.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

It’s Unix time

It’s a Unix timestamp, running 1 hour slower than the displayed time.

If that’s the case then this LCARS screen may have settings for multiple timezones.
