Sometimes, Apple surprises us. When they advertise that one of the Apple Watch main strength is the way you can customize it, the main customizing thing is not available for third party developers. You cannot get customized Apple Watch faces from the trade and developers can’t work on that. That’s a pity because we could see a whole load of variety of interesting designer Apple Watch faces emerge. But that’s not the case. Is that a problem for everybody?
Well obviously not. Someone has found a solution with a tweak that allows to run watch OS 2 beta with customized faces. The developer Hazma Sood, has published this video on twitter showing the Apple Watch in stainless steel body with two different customized faces. You will appreciate that yourself. As you can see, he has gone very far in the integration of the home-made Apple Watch faces as it is cross system compatible and works as any Apple Watch face made by Apple. You can use the digital crown which makes its color change.
The tweak developed by Hazma Sood is available as an open source for everybody on GitHub.

Even though there are chances that Apple will open the possibility to design third party faces for the Apple Watch soon, it is still not the case and even with watchOS 2, unless you use a tweak like this one, you may not get your own personalized Watch face. But some are smarter than others…
