The best Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round watch faces

Download these fun faces for your Pebble smartwatch
Best Pebble watch faces

So you have yourself a Pebble, Pebble Time or Pebble Time Round. You've charged it up, figured out the tricks and downloaded our edit of the best Pebble apps. What's next in your Pebble customization journey?

Part of any Pebble's appeal is the retro looks so you'll want a watch face to match. Now Pebblers don't have quite the pick of feature heavy watch faces that Apple Watch and Android Wear users can choose from, but there are still plenty of Pebble faces with little tricks of their own.

The best part is that the upcoming Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2 watches will also be able to support all the current watch faces - and there will be plenty of new ones to choose from too.

First look: Pebble 2 hands on and Pebble Time 2 hands on

Bear in mind that colour Pebble Time watch faces will look more vibrant on your smartphone's screen than on the smartwatch itself, and not every face will work with Pebble Time Round because of its circular shape. That said, there are many more Round options now and the store is often updated with new designs.

Just go to the watch faces tab of your Pebble smartphone app and hit the plus button to get to the store, or the Pebble site to check it out on a bigger screen.

Straight

There are so many variations of this ridiculously simple watch face, it's awesome. No matter what you choose, you get a very straightforward way (hence the name) to view the time and weather, or time and date with tons of colors, fonts, themes and so much more. There's also StraightForecast and Straightscape with the former showing you more detailed weather updates and the latter showing landscapes.

Free

Tick Tock Weather

This cute face changes its animations based on the local weather. It also updates every 20 minutes from OpenWeatherMap and even shows different animations depending on how much it rains.

Free

Daily Steps

Daily Steps displays a squiggly graph of your step activity, taken from Pebble Health, against a 24-hour clock so you can track your daily activity and compare it against your previous day's steps. There are customizable settings for your daily goal, temperature scale, screen colors and more too.

Free

Music Time

Music Time is a watch face that lets you enjoy your Music even when you aren't listening to it. The watch face colors adapt to the album art of the songs you're listening to and will even display the current album art and Pebble Health stats. You can also choose to display time, date, steps, active time, sleep and distance traveled.

Free

R2D2 or BB-8 face

This face from dev Wootzee would have been great during the height of the Star Wars craze. Oh wait, that's still a thing, so might as well download this face. It's tough picking between the two cute droids but the customizations on both are the same: background colors, battery life indicator, weather, Bluetooth indicator and vibrations can be configured. If you're feeling the dark side, Darth Time from TenaciousDev is another awesome option that has papa Vader raising his hand when the time changes.

Free

UP for Pebble


A neat option for tracking fitness on a Pebble, Jawbone doesn't have an app for Pebble like Misfit does but it does offer this watch face which tracks steps, calories and sleep and syncs with Jawbone's iPhone app with Android sync coming soon. No Jawbone UP band required.

You can choose from three watch faces and flick to see a seven day view of your progress though it hasn't been updated for the Time's colour screen yet.

Free

Mario Time Watchface

There's plenty of geek love in the Pebble watch face selection - if you own a Pebble Time, try this from Alexey Avdyukhin in which Super Mario jumps every minute with a background that changes throughout the day. It can also show the weather and your Pebble's battery level as well as the day and date.

If you have a Pebble or Pebble Steel, try the original monochrome Mario Time watch face by Denis Dzyubenko. DKTIME with Donkey Kong from the NES is also worth a look for nostalgic gamers.

Free

Real Weather

This classy looking weather app from developer reno is one of the most popular watch faces on the Pebble store and for good reason. There are fourteen, colour weather images of the sky to cycle through, for day and night, and the time, date and current temperature are displayed clearly in monochrome in the lower half of the display. YWeather, the most downloaded app for Pebble, is also worth a look as it shows a neat three day forecast.

Free

Slides of Time

Inspired by that classic Pebble watch face Enigma, Slides of Time adds two things - customisation of fonts, colours and animation styles and the ability to view dates, temperatures and watch battery levels as grids of digits. Slides of Time is available in both colour and black and white.

Free

Kiezel Time

Pebble has been promoting the Kiezel Collection and we can see why - it's a fun set of simple, clean, colourful watch faces, pixel art and brain teasers. The catch? Each watch face is free for the regular monochrome option but you have to pay to customise the background colour, hour and minute hand colours (where applicable), fill colours, you get the picture. It's really customisable.

Kiezel Time 2, Pixel Perfect, Simply Time and Essential are more winners from Kiezel.

Free (Pay for customisations)

Streble

For Strava users, Streble - as the name suggests - isn't an official Pebble watch face from the app but it does display weekly goal progress for runners and cyclists right on the watch face. Shake your wrist to get monthly and all-time stats plus planned future features include Timeline integration and relevant weather info such as temperature, wind speed and rainfall. Neat.

Free

Mondrian

Purely from an aesthetic point of view this is one of our favourite watch faces for the Pebble Time - the preppy face and neat lines just seem to suit the chunky, retro looks of the watch itself. And no you don't need to worry about being naughty, the Dutch painter's work - including his 1930 piece Composition II in Red, Blue and Yellow is in the public domain which is the basis for this. No doubt this is just what he would have wanted.

Materials is another good shout if you want something simple and fuss free, inspired by Android's Material Design.

A newer watch face from another developer also called Mondrian is slightly more complex with its options to show the date, weather, battery and time on the screen.

Free

Cool Weather

Rather than squinting to see small, minimalist icons of weather icons, Cool Weather from SetPebble hits you with colour (still simple) animations of sun, rain and everything in between. They take up half the display so you can't miss them.

You can customise which weather service it uses (including Yahoo, OpenWeatherMap and Forecast.io) and if you shake the watch while on this watch face, it gives you a description of the weather and location in words e.g. 'Fair, Shoreditch' as well as the time it last updated. Time, date, temperature and battery levels are also visible.

Free

BCD Minimalist

If you like to work for your time update, try this watch face inspired by binary coded decimal clocks. It works with both monochrome and colour Pebbles and displays the time using coloured squares in columns - two columns each for hours, minutes and (optionally) seconds with each row having a different value (1,2,4 and 8 if you must know). If you're a real nerd you can configure the watch face to show the time in true binary format where the columns have values of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32.

Free

We will continue to update this feature. Let us know any Pebble and Pebble Time watch faces that we have missed in the comments below.

    Well...

    That list is highly subjective. I don't like a single one of them.

    I only have 2 Watchfaces:

    Slides of Time (always on)

    Cool Weather (to check Weather)

    Pebble Time: Design and Build

    The design and build quality was the primary cause of concern in the first model. The plastic material of the watch made it look like a cheap product that is meant for small kids. It received huge criticism in the design category. Hence, Pebble decided to focus greatly on the design aspects. Truth to be told, they again failed to impress the users in delivering a quality looking product. Appearances are extremely important if you are investing hundreds of dollars in a smart watch.

    You should try original TTMM collection

    I hope someone will make a 24-hour one-hand "slow" clockface. Luke Botta Uno or Jaquet Droz Numerus Clausus No 8/88, or MeisterSinger Edition 24. Midnight down, noon up.

    For those who master their time!

    • lukebarnes0511 says:

      They have - search 'Elegant 24'! I'm a big fan of a single hand watch, and great to have it on my pebble!

    Nothing special by microbyte must be the best I've seen, use it all the time
