Bring Your Watch Face to Life with this Animation Hack for the Apple Watch
We already know that the Apple Watch will get new watch faces this fall, including custom watch faces.
But one developer couldn’t wait, so he created his own, and it looks pretty cool.
London-based Hamza Sood posted his handiwork on Twitter on Tuesday, showing his stainless steel Apple Watch being easily changed from the Mickey Mouse watch face to an animated one he created for the smartwatch.
After some haxx… Custom watch faces on Apple Watch!

In the video, the developer also shows off how he’s able to use the device’s Digital Crown to change the background colors of the custom watch face, just like you can with the native watch faces on the Apple Watch.
Of course, the watch faces previewed on Apple’s watchOS 2 site look a lot slicker, but if you like to tailor your wearables to your own exacting specifications, Sood does a good job of giving us a peek at what that looks like on the Apple Watch.
