    There are just five watch faces, and all black background, no colour and very poor outdoor visibility. Actually very disappointing selection and uninspiring at work. One of the things about the smart watch is the wide selection of watch faces and the ability to change it. Is this going to change our are we stuck with this bland set of watch faces.

    Hi Vikram, thanks for the message. We will soon be releasing a software update by the end of week (18th Dec) with a much improved experience, fixes, added applications (features) and a whole new set of lively watch-faces. You will be able to update the same from the paired mobile app itself.

    Hey Vinod, Can you please tell me how did you change the watchfaces? I cant seem to find that option at all. Is it on phone or the watch itself?

    I am an Android smartphone user.

    Hey Ankush from the home screen (on the watch face) press and hold for about 5 seconds until you see the selection option and then move up and down using the bezels moves and select the desired face…. There you go…. Be Happy!

      OMG that was soo simple! I hope in future they add local customizations like individual features on a watch face!

    Blink Team, please add your logo to the watch faces – a good marketing strategy 🙂
    Also, why don’t you guys announce the users to create a few faces and may be a contest too. I am sure we have quite a lot of capable people around.

        I do really agree. Let the user have some way to create watch faces for blink. The blink team may have their own process whether they can accept the design or not, if yes, a particular user made watch face gets added in the existing downloadable collection for public access.
        I was looking myself as if i could create a face by my own in some way, but couldnt find any links to start with.

      Thank you for the suggestion, Mahendra.

      We shall have it communicated to the team to act upon it. Currently, in the October update we are going to introduce a feature wherein you can use any picture in your phone as your Watchface.

        Hi Ulhas
        I do update as per their update process email and also restart watch plus power off and power on watch, but still there are 8 watch-faces only ( which were there before) . How much do you have?
        In app there are at bottom 3 icons (completely black)..Fitness /watchfaces / marvin voice.

        So can you confirm watch faces?…there is no digital watch face. Do you have any?

        Thanks

        Hi Vebs,

        I did the steps mentioned by them and at the end restarted my watch 3 times to see the new changes. No digital watch faces for sure, but more analog faces (15+) i think have been added.

    Received a call from Blink Team and confirmed there are no digital watch faces on this update, but promised to have it in the subsequent weekly updates. Currently the team is working specifically on analog faces and soon will have the digital faces.
    New update has incorporated few more analog faces, some of them are cool.
    Battery performance improved slightly, I am sure it will get better and better over the updates.
    Blink Team promised Marvin to be more comprehensive and stable OS than the android wear in the future. I feel we should give more time and all that they need now is our support.
    Cheers!!!

    Blink Team, Please consider having personal favorite collection of watch faces so that we can quickly change and not go thru all faces every time. Some option to choose and access the favorite section would be great.

    Also having watch faces with date would be good.
