    Interesting. None of these are really my style, but its good to see Google trying to keep Android Wear relevant and refreshing.

    I snagged a couple I'd never seen before & the Kevin Tong robot face I had used for quite a while, but somehow didn't download to my 6P.

    Also, one of those faces is 99 cents. The rest are free.

    Sent from my Nexus 6P

    I did. I'm not saying they aren't nice.....just not my style watch faces. Some are very cool and I'm sure a lot of people will like them. It's still a great idea by Google, in my opinion.

    Are you rocking the Mango face...."add instant chic to any outfit"? JK...of course.
    Edit: Upon second look that one is kind of nice, not at all like the description sounded. I may actually try it. Disregard my poking fun attempt.

    Show's the difference in taste for sure. I didn't care for Mango. I got Ted Baker, which seems kinda cool, and Zoe Jordan, which are kinda sleek to me. And, of course, my robots face.

    I'm still rocking my Christmas Countdown face right now though, so I won't even be trying these out until after next week.

    My face collection has gotten pretty stale over the past several months. I found one I really like (thanks to @sajokaz) and have had a hard time replacing it. I figure the Christmas one will reset my idea of a good face and I can try these after, but I really do like the look of the ones I snagged, so far. We'll see how they translate to my Urbane.

    As an update I tried Zoe Jordan, based on Jonny's post, that one does look like something I would like. Unfortunately it looks like it does not work on a G Watch. . It just looks like a piece of broken glass on my watch, no time indication at all. I will try an Uninstall and install again...are what happens.

    I don't remember which one I recommended that he liked. Could have been Minimal & Elegant (my personal favorite) or Retro Flip Clock.
