Pebble watchfaces (colour)

Click on each box to learn more and use the hamburger menu below to filter.


Younique is the most personalizable face ever made for Pebble.

Upload and display up to 6 photos from your phone. Customize modules that display health info, weather, bluetooth and more.

Why this design?

The Pebble Time smartwatches feature a nice and crisp 64-color display. What's more personal than displaying your own photos / images and have the watch cycle through them?

There was nothing like it available so we decided to change that.

Mosaic V2

Mosaic is a watchface that'll be sure to pop, slide and live with colour! Utilizing every beautiful color possible, Mosaic puts a wonderful, random array of colors across your Pebble. Along with plenty of animations and big numbers so you can always see the time.

Why this design?

This was one of our first watchfaces for the - back then - newly released color Pebble smartwatch (Pebble Time) and I was looking for a way to make the most of the color display.


Have the watchface your way using this modular face you can freely chose which information you want to display and where. Our first watchface to make use of the new Pebble Health API.

Why this design?

Pebble introduced health tracking and I had to come up with a watchface which implements said tracking features also enabling the user to freely select where he wants to place with info.


Essentially is essentially all you'll need in a watchface. It's simple and clean, containing just the time.

Why this design?

My take on a rather simple yet still very stylish watchface featuring the essentials (hence its name).

Plain Weather

Plain Weather, although "plain", brings a simple and clean interface to your Pebble Time Round that you'll love.

Why this design?

I was given a preproduction Pebble Time Round ahead of its market introduction and asked to design a watchface which complements the watch.

Still one of my favorite watchfaces since it just so nicely fits on a round display.

Upside Down

A rather plain but yet stylish watchface. Displays the hours on top along with the weather (updated every 30 minutes), and the bottom contains the minutes inverted and the date.

Why this design?

Same situation as with the watchface before (Plain Weather): Pebble was looking for a watchface complementing their newly released Pebble Time Round Smartwatch.


Holidays is the perfect face for your holiday season! Beautifully designed for 3 states: day, evening, and night. You can see the weather as well before going out into those chilly conditions!

Why this design?

I was looking for a watchface which would best bring across the atmosphere and "magic" of christmas.


Beat is an attractive watchface with more than enough animations which uses it's unique "beatline" to show information such as the battery level or bluetooth status (or if you want, have it completely random). There are some very cool animations that catch the eye and make it look as if your wrist is actually monitoring your heartbeat!

Why this design?

One of many ideas I had to spice up a simple watchface by adding a cool animation.


Personal is what it says it is: personal. Customize it to show your name and watch it greet you at different parts of the day - with a beautiful design and lots of settings.

Why this design?

Another early watchface for the newly released Pebble Time showing off nicely the displays color capability.

Looks beautiful on the watch!

Simplified Analogue

Based off of a community request - Simplified Analogue brings simplicity and classiness together while still being very customizable!

Why this design?

The Pebble community asked for a simple analogue watchface and while we did not simply wanted to add another watchface with hour and minute arms, this is what I came up with.


Kids of the 80s know exactly what this is ;) The hero of our childhood is back!

Have a "voice box" right on your wrist with a talking animation when the time changes. On the lefthand side you see the date and on the opposite the remaining battery.

Why this design?

A smartwatch always reminds me of by favorite TV-series when I was a kid and the versions out there were not very pleasant. So I decided to fix this.


We have not decided on the final name for this face but so far have called it "Fireball". The ball grows like a swoosh as the hour goes by and starts all over again once the next hour started. Every minute it grows a bit more by first shrinking back to its origin and then coming back having grown slightly. It will bring your Pebble Time to life! The green swoosh going in the exact opposite direction is the battery-indicator…shrinking as your battery goes flat. You will have options to choose the colour of both swooshes and much more!

Why this design?

One of the faces designed for our very first kickstarter campaign.

I was looking for a new way of displaying parts of the time as well as the battery.


A very simple yet very stylish face displaying nothing but the time and date (and optionally the battery). There are quite a few settings here as well!

Why this design?

Many of the available watchfaces are too bright for business use, so this watchface was designed.


Our take on a watchface with two timezones giving you many personalizing options too! The inner circle shows the time for the first timezone (in the above example for Philipp’s timezone) and the outer one stands for the second timezone (Edwin, in the above example).

You can choose your own timezone and give both of them a name and a colour of your choice.

Why this design?

There are not many usable timezone watchfaces available and this is my take on the topic trying to add all the features necessary while still making it look good.


Slot Machine is an original face which emulates the style of an actual slot machine - watch the numbers of hours, minutes and seconds pass by with awesome animations as time progresses. With some awesome settings as well.

Why this design?

One of my first watchfaces / watchface ideas reminding me of a slot machine in casinos.

Circle Inception

Another kind of speedometer where we tried to put as much information as possible in. The top shows you the minutes, the bottom the hours and on the righthand side you see whether your Pebble is connected to your phone or not. The yellow circle displays the remaining battery capacity and in the very centre you have the day as well as the date.

Why this design?

My attempt of displaying the time in yet another unconventional way.

RLR (Ruler) is a stylish, functional, and beautiful watchface. It has settings, such as BT [dis/re]connect alert, theme, batterybar style, and more. Not only that, but it also includes some awesome transition animations in the style of an old radio.

Why this design?

Our very first proper watchface displaying the time in a rather unusual way.


SCATTER is a unique watchface with lots of settings, absolutely stunning animations, and an amazing design. The more minutes have past, the more circles there are! The more hours that have past, the more squares.

Why this design?

A watchface which represents my thoughts of a watchface perfectly:

My main aim always is to display the time so the user does not need to stop whatever he's doing and stare at the watch for a while until he figured out what time it is.

The background dots are just a fun way of always having something going on in the background, making the watchface never look the same.


BLKS is a minimalist, animated, and beautiful watchface with a couple extra features such as battery bar and bluetooth connection indicator. Shake to view the date. 12/24 hour support provided.

Reason for designing / developing

My take on a very basic and nicely big number watchface.


CARDS is a highly customizable, data filled, and beautiful watchface. This watchface is sure to please the eye. It has many features, such asw eather, battery/bluetooth, notes (that you make yourself!), card reordering and more!

Shake your wrist to change cards.

Why this design?

We wanted to come up with something entirely new / fresh while still looking great.

Windows Mobile Homescreen #11

Another one I can't recall the name for but remember that Microsoft loved it!

FACADE MultiOrientation

All I remember about this one is that the pink plugin was a very capable plugin called FACADE allowing you to have all your favorite contacts right on your homescreen giving you the option to write or call them quickly. Very nice stuff! Furthermore this homescreen worked on both orientations (portrait and landscape).


Same here: New capable plugin allowing you to set an alarm, activate or deactivate WiFi and set your profile. Great plugin!

Windows Mobile Homescreen #14

Another new plugin where you could browse your music library right on your homescreen and play back the music selected. Looks great with the covers of the albums right there on your homescreen!

Windows Mobile Homescreen #16

This was a real beauty on silver / gray devices with its blue colors and the Windows Mobile logo. I love it!


This is a feature overload of a homescreen! Showing you all kinds of information hence I tried to still wrap it all up nicely without knocking you out over the sheer amount of information.


A slightly different style to the previous homescreen.

Personal Digital Assistant

Another business compatible homescreen where I tried to wrap it all up nicely giving you all the important information at a glance.

Who is this guy and what is he doing?

I can't stand bad design/UI/UX and am quite passionate about it.

For as long as I can remember, I am into design. From quite an early age I started personalizing my stuff and change them to my liking. What started with sketching, I soon moved on to digital once I got my hands on (back in the days) Microsoft PAINT and Paintshop Pro.

Not long thereafter the switch to Photoshop happened and the possibilities seemed infinite.

My main aim initially was to design so-called homescreens for the previously popular Windows Mobile Smartphones. This was the moment I licked blood and I made myself a name in the community releasing over 100 homescreens. This came hand in hand with freelancing work for well-known companies such as HTC, Microsoft, Navigon etc.

My current (technical) passion are the Fitbit and Garmin Smartwatches. The main reason for buying these smartwatches was the fact, that one can design his own watchfaces. It all started with the Pebble Smartwatch back in summer 2014. My interest was woken and it did not take long until I started designing my own watchfaces and putting together layouts for the pebble's 1-bit b/w-display.

It was also the time I met Edwin Finch in the pebble forum and found my "coding counterpart"!

We complement each other perfectly - me designing the faces / coming up with fancy ideas and Edwin bringing them to life.

Our approach is relatively simple: each watchface must be pixelperfect and one of a kind.

This brings me to our first commercial project we worked on together - and still do:

What initially started as a quite successfull kickstarter campaign has now grown to a collection of over 50 different and unique watchfaces and a mindblowingly large userbase.
