Watchfaces on the Gear S2 have evolved drastically over time. They were primarily intended to give a customized look to your smartwatch and help distinguish from the rest. Over time, watchfaces are being stuffed with more features which make them not just pleasing to the eye but also to use. Now, with the Gear S3 in Samsung's line up, the watchface game is getting a whole lot bigger.

Designing these watchfaces though takes time and effort and of course creativity. However, to simplify the process and help anyone get started with designing them regardless of having coding knowledge, Samsung introduced the Gear Watchface designer tool last year.

Users can also monetize their watchfaces by selling it on the Galaxy app store.
