If you have Android phone:

- Install WatchMaker phone app from here

- If you have Android Wear or Ticwatch2 watch the companion app on watch should automatically install - use the Android Wear app on your phone to make sure your watch is connected to your phone

- If you have Samsung Gear S2/S3 (Tizen), get the companion app by installing Samsung Gear App on your phone from the app store and search for WatchMaker - the app's full name is “WatchMaker Companion for Gear S2 & S3” - this works for Android and iPhone! (there was an earlier version for iOS only which is discontinued)

UPDATE

As some of you may have noticed, Samsung removed the Companion App for WatchMaker from Galaxy Apps Store.

This was due to Samsung requiring a change in our business model so that we should sell watches on the Samsung platform, as well as on Google and Apple.

We are working closely with Samsung to get this resolved as soon as possible and have already submitted a new version for Samsung to review.

Once the new version is approved, it will work exactly the same as the current version and will not force any additional purchases.

In the meantime, we advise you not to uninstall the WatchMaker Companion App or reset your watch until the app is available again on Galaxy Apps Store.

Apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.

I will post any updates on the issue here


If you have iOS phone:

WatchMaker is now available on iOS - get phone app here

The phone apps on iOS and Android are free but need to be unlocked with a purchase ($3.99) to send custom watch faces to your watch. The standalone WatchMaker app on your watch is always free, so you never need to pay twice!

The instructions to install the free standalone WatchMaker app on your watch vary depending on which watch you have :

Android Wear Watch

  • ASUS ZenWatch (1/2/3)
  • Casio Smart Outdoor/Pro Trek
  • Fossil Q Founder/Marshal/Wander
  • Huawei Watch
  • LG G Watch
  • LG G Watch R
  • LG Watch Sport
  • LG Watch Style
  • LG Watch Urbane (1/2)
  • Michael Kors Access
  • Motorola 360 (1/2/womens/sport)
  • New Balance RunIQ
  • Nixon Mission
  • Polar M600
  • Samsung Gear Live
  • Sony Smartwatch 3
  • TAG Heuer Connected

You can check which version of Android Wear you have by clicking Watch Settings > System > About > Versions

Android Wear 2.0

  • If you are lucky enough to have Android Wear 2.0 on your watch (check in Settings > About), this is very easy!
  • Just swipe right on your watch until you see Add more watch faces
  • Scroll down to Get more watch faces and select WatchMaker Watch Face (don't select the premium version - remember the watch app should always be free!)
  • Hit install and you are done!

The companion app for your Gear S2/S3 is available and can be downloaded right now from your iPhone / iPad :

  • Make sure bluetooth is turned on for both your phone and smartwatch and connect your Gear device
  • In the Samsung Gear S app, click more “View More Apps” and search for WatchMaker

  • Long press on your Gear S2/S3 smartwatch and scroll to select WatchMaker as your watchface
  • Welcome to WatchMaker! Enjoy our beautiful watchfaces.
