Wearable apps run directly on a watch, giving you access to hardware such as sensors and the GPU. Wearable apps are similar to other apps that use the Android SDK, but differ in design and functionality.
Custom watch faces leverage a dynamic, digital canvas that can include colors, animations, and contextual information.
A watch face can display data that is supplied by a data provider. Your data provider app can supply text, images, and more to watch faces.
