The best Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round watch faces (that still work)

Download these fun faces for your Pebble smartwatch
The best Pebble watch faces

So you have a Pebble 2, Pebble Time or Pebble Time Round and you're making the most of it, despite Pebble's uncertain future. You've charged it up, figured out the tricks and downloaded our edit of the best Pebble apps that will still run on your watch. What's next?

Part of any Pebble's appeal is the retro looks so you'll want a watch face to match. Now Pebblers don't have the pick of feature heavy watch faces that Apple Watch and Android Wear users can choose from, and casualties include gems like Streble and Mondrian, but there are still plenty of Pebble faces to try out.

Go to your Pebble smartphone app and hit the watch face icon to get to the store, or the Pebble site to check it out on a bigger screen. Don't worry about the lack of previews in the mobile app - if they are still supported, they will still work on the watch which is where it counts.

Straight

There are a bunch of 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.

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.

R2D2 Face 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

Mario Time Watchface

There's still 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

Some of the Kiezel Collection is supported including Kiezel Time, a fun set of simple, clean, colourful watch faces, pixel art and brain teasers. 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. Others such as Pixel Perfect from Kiezel are not supported.

Free (Pay for customisations)

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'll continue to update this feature through 2017 . What Pebble watch faces are you using? Let us know any we've 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)

    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!

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