When you’re browsing through your Photos app and reliving great moments or giggling at the fun you had, you might come across a photo that would look just awesome on your Apple Watch.
While Apple Watch still doesn’t support third-party watch faces, the Face Sharing feature introduced in watchOS 7 does make it easy to import and add pre-customized watch faces. This is where Facer comes in.
Facer is an online community where Apple Watch users can create and share their own customized watch faces. The Facer app is free to use and watch faces created by community members are free to download.
