In an age where mobile phones, computers and tablets last in months rather than years, it’s little surprise that our fashion tastes have evolved with them. Now, with Android Wear, you can change the appearance of your watch as you see fit, to suit your mood, tastes or activities. Today, Google are promoting the 1500+ downloadable watchfaces from the Play Store, and you can see just a selection of them above.

In fact, Google has a showcase of 17 new watchfaces today from all around the globe, including characters from Angry Birds, Hello Kitty and Moomin, to elegant styles and eye-catching brands.

You can access the featured watchfaces through Google’s Play Store landing page here. Try some out. Let us know what you think!

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
