When visual designer Ryan Considine saw the first wave of watch faces for Android Wear devices, he was less than impressed with the selection at his disposal. A born problem solver, Ryan teamed up with Android engineer Elliott Chenger to create a watch face that was worthy of our wearables. They called the result, Relativity, and it can now be downloaded for free on the Google Play store.
As the Google Play description states:
Relativity is a simple yet precise way to see your relative progress through the week. It’s a completely new way to see and think about time. And although it is fundamentally new in concept, it still looks and feels at home on your wrist._
Progress Through the Day
The longest marks represent midnight of each day, while the other marks represent 3am, 6am, 9am, noon, 3pm, 6pm, and 9pm throughout the day.
Progress Through the Week
As the hand passes around the face it passes through each day, starting with Sunday at the top, and conveniently passing through Wednesday at the halfway point: halfway through the week.
Time and Date at a Glance_
Although the progression of the hand around the face is a unique and interesting way to read the time and day, we included glanceable read-outs as well—in formats you’re used to—so you can find that information in a second._
But talk is cheap. The best way to discover Relativity is to download it and wear it around for a little while. There’s no better time to try it out than now.
