Free Watchfaces Courtesy of Samsung in Galaxy App Store for Gear S2 and S3

Samsung wants you to enjoy your wearable tech and to help you along the way they have now listed 4 watchfaces for FREE, but that’s only for a limited time. All watchfaces can be downloaded from the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store and are compatible with the Gear S2 and S3 smartwatches. The 4 watchfaces in question are:-

  • BAM – Pro multicolor version

This watchface depicts the Baikal-Amur Mainline railway in Eastern Siberia and the Far East, the second main Russian railway access to the Pacific Ocean. This is an exact copy of the Soviet watch issued in the Soviet Union on the basis of hours of “Amphibian” series.

  • Displays the battery on the small second hand dial
  • 8 color support schemes, which are switched by double-tap
  • The original AOD mode for Gear S3 and Ambient mode for Gear S2


  • Rustica Analogue Watchface

This is a fairly straight forward watch face that has brown/grey colors. It’s easy to keep a log of the amount of water and coffee (tea?) Intake that you have throughout the day. You also have access to battery Information and steps via the Gear smartwatch S Health app.

  • Watchface VAKTA_III01

VAKTA III01 is a new and dare we say it Stylish watchface.  There are various dials on the watch face but none of them launches a separate app, which is a little disappointing, but I do console myself that it is actually FREE.

  • Step percent
  • Always on display
  • High Color AOD

Watchface VAKTA_ZBDO1
Another new and stylish watchface called VAKTA ZBDO1. Again, like the previous watchface, none of the counters actually launch another app, again this is FREE so get downloading.
