Washington: Samsung haven’t have the great response with its debut smartwatch Samsung Galaxy Gear, but new app form Samsung may change your thinking.

The Galaxy Gear is Samsung most controversial device of 2013, it was released and was hated for the lack of notifications. But what it did have was a beautiful 273ppi Super AMOLED display. Shortly after its release, there was an app in Samsung’s Gear Appstore called Watch Styler.

At first I started playing around with it and created personal watch faces with custom backgrounds of my son. Later on, I went on to the XDA forums to see if there were people creating custom watch faces too, and then something happened which changed my whole world.

Before getting into the Galaxy Gear, I was a ROM flashaholic. I used to flash custom ROMs on my mobile devices day and night but this hobby of mine has now been replaced by an another hobby, creating custom watch faces. This brings the everyday struggle of which watch face should I wear today.

There are a few basic steps you need to follow and you are ready to make your own custom watch faces, first thing you need to do is to go ahead and download the Watch styler App from Samsung’s Gear Appstore.

To install themes:

– Create a random new theme with the desired name in Watch Styler , and save it.

– Close Watch Styler.

– Unzip the downloaded theme.

– Replace the unzipped contents of the new theme folder (at PhoneAndroiddatacom.omnitel.appcessory.gear.watchstyler.managertheme) (you will see a folder with the name of the just created random watchstyler theme)

– Open Gear Manager and select the Watch Styler theme.

There are 2 very good watch face designers called OpenMind_NL and Maxim_r, both are active on the XDA forums and took some free time out of their busy lives to answer a few questions for us.
