One main advantage a smartwatch has over the traditional Watch is that you can change the watch face as many times as you like. Watch face is a significant part of a smartwatch, it shows just about the right amount of information that matters most to you at once on the screen. Whether you’re using an Apple Watch, Wear OS, Fitbit, Samsung, or any other smartwatch, you’ll get tons of options in the respective stores as there are lots of 3rd-party designers. So today, I’ll be sharing with you my top 10 best free watch faces for Galaxy Watch 3.

It’s a fine digital watch face that shows the time in hours, minutes, and seconds. It also shows the month and day. Other complications include steps, distance, calories, heart rate, and battery life. Meanwhile, it features 7 one-touch app launchers with one customizable option.

This hybrid watch face from Matteo Dini is another of my favorite watch faces which I fancy a lot simply because of the modern look, aesthetics, and in-depth functionality. It shows both the time and date in a stylish format which includes days and week. It also shows my distance, calories, and steps.

The background colors can be changed by simply double-tapping the center of the screen while it features eight widgets in total with two customizable once. This includes music, weather, phone, settings, and alarm. Other features include steps, battery life, calories, and heart rate.
Pokus542 which looks quite feminine in appearance is still one of my favorite watch faces. It has a modern look, good legibility and gives a piece of comprehensive information for sport. It basically shows time in hours, minutes, and seconds, while the date is shown in months and days. Other functions include access to the calendar which can be accessed by pressing the top, music (right), weather (left), and settings (bottom).
Moreover, double-tapping the center changes the background color.
Another beautiful watch face for Galaxy Watch 3 is Carbon Legend, it’s a features-rich watch face that shows the time and other details in the most sophisticated way. It features a one-touch app launcher for 6 apps which includes Samsung health, music, weather, phone, calendar, and contacts. It also shows both analog and digital time. Other features include the steps, heart rate, and battery level. You can also change background colors with multiple options available. One last thing is that this watch face can be patriotic for the Austrian people.
Often times I decide to go with this classic watch face called CopperCareer. It has a modern design that looks prestigious. It also shows quite a lot of complications with the option to customize two widgets. It shows the heart rate, distance, steps, calories, and battery life. While the app launchers include phone, alarm, weather, and two customizable ones. The background color can be changed by double-tapping the different indicators.
StarBack is another fine hybrid watch face I really like because of its detailed, yet no so cloggy design. It shows the time in a fashionable way with the three clock hands well designed, and as well an analog time. It also shows Samsung health and weather apps with two customizable widgets. Tapping on the down part changes the background while the colors of the two smaller ones can be customized separately.
If you want it simple as I do oftentimes, I just go with this GPD watch face. It’s not features-ladened but will save you battery life. It just shows the date that includes the year, month, and day, while the time is showed in hour, minute, and seconds. It also shows battery life and analog time.
Another of my favorite watch faces is Hellboy, it’s a hybrid watch face that’s well detailed and has a modern look that I think is quite sophisticated.

It has four app launches for Samsung Health and weather app, the other two can be customized. Background color can change by double-tapping the screen at the bottom.
