Important Note for Mobile device users: The links here will not work for mobile devices since these watch faces are for smartwatches. Google will say device isn't compatible on your smartphone or tablet because they won't work on those devices. For mobile device users, you can access the Play Store from your watch and, using the search terms "Mobvoi+watchface" to call up all watch faces or "Mobvoi+watchface+[watch face name]" where [watchface name] is the actual name of the watch face you want to install, you can locate and install these watch faces. You must use the "+"s or it doesn't work properly. I.E., Use the search term "Mobvoi+watchface+Elegance" to find the Elegance watch face. Using Voice Search is possible, spell out the company name mobvoi then say "and watch face and [the name of the watch face]. I.E. Say "m" "o" "b" pause ""v" "o" "i" "and watch face" "and Walker" to find the Walker watch face. If I didn't pause after 'mob' it often time came up with 'mobevoi' which then had to be fixed and I had to hit the microphone repeatedly to say each of the other segments that are in quotes.

*Battery Rundown Estimate is determined by charging my Ticwatch E to 100% then running the watch face under test in it's default configuration (usually) for 60 minutes of normal use. Since this is a test of the watch face, normal use is defined as periodic time checks, periodic notification acquisition, and normal watch face use of sensors and data acquisition but not the use of third party apps (i.e., Google Fit, whatsapp, etc.), taking of watch face screenshots, or, except at the end of the hour, examining the battery rundown status. The Estimate is taken from the Wear OS app on my phone under Advanced Settings/Watch Battery (plus 1 for the hour that past). It may provide a comparison of how watch faces will perform relative to each other. Watch faces with an estimate of 30 hours or more receive a Mr Green :mrgreen:. Your mileage may vary. (Feel free to post your own results in a reply.)

If I missed any others, please add a watch face name and screenshot attachment in a reply. To take a screenshot of your watch face, open the Wear OS app on your phone and tap the three vertical dots on the upper right corner. Tap Take screenshot of watch then follow the prompting to take and upload the screenshot to your phone. I'll update this post with the new information.

You can download these watch faces directly on the watch. Can you take a screenshot of your problem?

It has to do with how the forum is handling the URLs but also Google saving you from yourself badly. When you click on a link it doesn't actually send the link as I entered it but rather redirects through viglink.com which Google does not like and it gets all messed up but only on a mobile device or tablet. The links work great on a PC where you can tell Google all of your devices you want to use and Google wiil then push the watch face right to your Ticwatch E (I have a Ticwatch E also and have loaded all the watch faces and taken screenshot you see here before posting).

As Jamie says you can load up the Play Store on your watch. And then use the exact search term "Mobvoi and watchface" without the quotes of course and you'll come up with the lot of them. There will be other developers in there as well but the Mobvoi will be near the top. The fastest way is to use a PC with the collection search or individual links but three words to rule them all ...err, find them all.. :D

Edit: Upon further investigation, the forum redirects aren't responsible.for the behavior. See post #11636: https://forum.mobvoi.com/viewtopic.php? ... 74&p=11636

That was the answer to my question. I just searched for the watch faces I wanted from within my Ticwatch E. Too many to scroll through. I assumed I would go to Google Play and download from there. If you go to Google Play and search one of the watch faces for Mobvoi Watch face, they say: device isn't compatible ... So the solution is to go onto the watch and search for the watch face(s) you want then download and install

If you're looking for the watch face on your phone, you'll get that message. You have to look for them in the Play Store on your watch, since you'll be installing it there.

Can you be more specific? I test each watch face and the functions all work on my watch with a very few exceptions. Can you point out a specific watch face or do they all not work for you?

So the solution is to go onto the watch and search for the watch face(s) you want then download and install
Here's the complete low down on this issue, I'll update the first post with a notice about this. The bottom line is this is a decision of Mobvoi to only allow the watch faces to be installed via the watch. I'm trying to convince them it's a bad idea. Because the watch face is designated as only for the smartwatch, on mobile devices, Google automatic filters the search results and generates the device isn't compatible message when you look at a watch face in the Play Store. The problem with this, of course, is, that since your watch is connected to your phone, it's natural to assume you can install the watch faces through you phone. It's admittedly disappointing that you can't and certainly hurts the adoption of Mobvoi watch faces by the smartwatch wearing public (IMO).

As you have found, there are only two ways to get the watch faces on to your watch, use the clunky search on the watch (the hard way, more on making it easier later) or use your PC (the easy way). No one is having a problem with the PC method so that's probably the way to go. For mobile device users, you can access the Play Store from your watch and, using the search terms "Mobvoi+watchface" to call up all watch faces or "Mobvoi+watchface+[watch face name]" where [watch face name] is the actual name of the watch face you want to install, you can locate and install these watch faces. You must use the "+"s or it doesn't work properly. I.E., Use the search term "Mobvoi+watchface+Elegance" to find the Elegance watch face. I couldn't get the voice search to recognize 'Mobvoi', it came up with 'My boy' instead. ;) If you do use voice search, use "and" instead of the "+" sign (then come back and tell us how you got it to recognize Mobvoi!).

A solution to the problem of the 'device isn't compatible' seems achievable and is done by other watch face developers. Basically, they create a stub program (the minimum code to qualify as an app) whose only purpose is to call the install notification on your watch. After that the stub can be deleted from your phone. There's also a method of embedding the watch face in the phone app (used in Wear 1.0) but that means you have to load the unuseable watch face code on your phone (unuseable by your phone that is). Hopefully, Mobvoi can be convinced to make the change in the interest of more widespread adoption. Please, voice your own opinion on the matter in this thread.
