Happy New Year!!!
To help start off 2017 with a bang we have a couple of announcements to make.
Watchfaces on WatchAWear
In partnership with +Terry Zahn of WatchAWear, we are happy to announce the Android Smartwatch face section. This new WatchAWear section is where creations by RASC founder Lokifish Marz will be released in the coming weeks. The new section is only accessible to WatchAWear members only. So be sure to sign up today!
We also kindly suggest that folks start releasing their faces in the new section on WatchAWear. Once the WatchAWear app is released, it will allow for direct download of faces to the watch using an easy to use app. How cool is that!
RASC Firmware Archive
Today we also announce the RASC Firmware Archive. It is the single largest collection of firmware for round Android smartwatches anywhere and is maintained by the RASC moderators themselves.

UPDATE 2016-10-09: Installing Watch Faces on Tethering Watches
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:
From Carlo Bonacci
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.
