One of our viewers has made a simple list of steps to follow in installing watch faces on tethering watches that use the Fundo wear or Mediatek phone app. Here’s his post:

Thanks…for the conveniene of anyone else with the same confusion:
1. Install Fundo Wear or Mediatek Smartdevice on your phone.
2. Download any watch face / extract it.
3. There will be 3 files: .xml, .png and .vxp. Copy these, and paste into your smartphone sdcard inside folder “appmanager” .
4. Open the mediatek or fundo app, connect to your watch. Then go to “My Application”, press “Install Now” button on the watch face.
Here is the link to find and download various watch faces: http://forum.xda-developers.com/smartwatch/other-smartwatches/watch-vxp-files-t3437311
