The 10 Best Samsung Galaxy Watch Faces of 2020

Get a design you love and the info you want on your wrist

One of the best things about smartwatches is that you don't have to settle on one watch face. Even better, they allow you to check the weather, monitor your heart rate, and more just by glancing at your wrist. Below is a list of the best watch faces for Samsung Galaxy watches in 2020.

These watch faces are available for all Samsung Galaxy smartwatches. Some are also available for Apple Watches and Wear OS devices.

Where to Get Samsung Watch Faces

You can download watch faces directly from the Galaxy Wearable app, which you need to set up your Samsung Galaxy watch. Watch faces are also available through the Galaxy Store mobile app for iOS and Android. There are a few other apps, like Facer and Watch Maker, that allow you to download additional clock faces for your Samsung device.

Samsung watches use a Linux-based operating system called Tizen. Any Tizen-compatible watch face is compatible with Galaxy smartwatches.

It even displays both your watch battery and phone battery life on the same screen.
