Has anyone tried these Watch Faces from Zooper Wear on their Gear S?

They look pretty great...looks like they depend on other SW to get the info as opposed to being for Watch Styler...My Gear S is coming FEDEX from VZW today and I look fwd to trying them.

This looks very interesting. I am also anxious to see if anyone has tried it. It looks like it might be worth the $3.48 investment.

I used to use Zooper to create watch faces for my old Galaxy Gear that was running a custom ROM (4.2) as many Gear Manager components didn't work properly on the Nexus 4 I was attempting to get the Gear to work with.

I did manage to get some functionality working, just not all. I couldn't use the watch face component of Gear Manager which is why i rooted and custom ROM'd it so then I could properly explore all possibilities.

Hey everyone, I'm the Dev of Zooper Wear.

There's a free/TRIAL version that includes support for:
-All Android Wear devices
-All Sony Smartwatch devices (even the old ones, LoL)
-All Galaxy Gear devices, including the S
Each platform have their own separate paid App, however, I bundled one from each into the free version.

So feel free to try it out before purchasing the full version.
Free one includes 1 design in 1 color.
Full version includes 5-7 designs in 2 colors.

Here's the link to the free/TRIAL-> https://forums.androidcentral.com/e...wskin.zooperwearwearablestrial&token=we4OeB_i

Oh & yes it does require Zooper Widget Pro (paid).

I'll be more than happy to answer any further questions here.
