The watch faces are one of the most desired features that come with smartwatches. When a user selects an available watch face, the watch face is displayed and the service callback methods are invoked.

To satisfy consumers, Huawei has launched the Watch GT 2 Pro with pre-installed numbers of watch faces. Also, the users can download and install more watch faces according to their needs and desire.

Last November, Huawei brought the Watch GT 2 Pro Moonphase Collection variant, which comes with 200+ pre-loaded watch faces based on every mood on a daily basis.
