How to customize your Moto 360 watch face with Motorola Connect

First, you'll need to be sure you have the latest version of the Motorola Connect app. You can head to Google play by

clicking right here

and double check that you do. This update includes the software needed to adjust the watch faces and send them over the air to your Moto 360. Pretty darn magical, if you ask us.

Of course you'll need to have connected your 360 to your phone via the

Android Wear

app. Once you have this done, fire up the Motorola Connect app and you should see your 360 listed as a connected device. Tap on it.

Now you have some options. The one we're focused on is the "Watch faces" item at the top of the list. It even tells you that you'll be able to customize the colors of the various watch faces installed. The little battery icon is a neat touch, too. Go ahead and tap on the watch faces section.

Again, things are pretty basic and easy to understand here. You can change the overall color of the watch face (and if you hate black bars you'll want to make it black) under the "Background" setting, and change that nifty sweep retrograde second hand color in the bottom section. I went with black and yellow, because black always looks good and yellow always makes black look even better. Yes, I'm a fashionista and you never knew it. You should choose whatever color scheme you like, because this thing is on your wrist and not mine. But you could try black and yellow and see how nerd-fashionistas live life on the edge. Anyhoo, pick the colors you like and up top tap the button that says "Update."

BAM. The face on your watch instantly changes to match the colors you picked in the Motorola Connect app on your phone. You went from this:
